Our firm has earned a reputation in Los Angeles County for the successful handling of real estate and tenancy appeals.

This analytical ability stems from our very extensive knowledge of landlord tenant case law and statutory law. Moreover, our understanding of the procedural hurdles and time-sensitive matters of the appeal process allows us to work in a cost effective and efficient matter. We handle appeals of decisions related to real estate, and landlord/tenant disputes including evictions.

Recent Success Stories On Appeal

We recently appealed a judgment from the Federal Court in which a judge in our opinion incorrectly dismissed a plaintiff's Fair Housing complaint, on grounds of res-judicata. Against a determined respondent using a specialized appellate firm with over 200 published opinions, we successfully appealed our line of legal reasoning to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal who unanimously agreed with our position and reversed the trial judge. Stein v. Braum Inv. and Development, Inc. Slip Copy, 2007 WL 2234617 (2007)

In another recent case the opposing party filed a baseless appeal in hopes of delaying and derailing our client's complaint. We successfully moved the appellate court to dismiss the baseless appeal on technical grounds thereby allowing our client's complaint to go forward, which resulted in our client saving a lot of time and money.
