Practice/Organization Description

My practice focuses primarily on real estate and title insurance related litigation. I represent title insurers and their insureds (including homeowners, mortgage lenders, and construction lenders) in a wide variety of disputes throughout California, including title and escrow related claims, priority disputes between competing lien holders, easement and encroachment disputes, mechanic's lien and stop notice litigation, wrongful foreclosure claims, as well as title insurance policy coverage and extra-contractual ("bad faith") litigation. I represent real estate brokers and agents, as well as escrow agents. In addition, I handle commercial landlord-tenant disputes.

I am a regular presenter of continuing education programs on California real estate and title insurance law, and have authored several published articles and papers on the subject.
