Litigation For Clients Throughout Southern California And The Central Coast

Real estate ownership, construction and property development in Southern California are among the most rewarding — and potentially damaging — financial opportunities in Southern California.

“Real estate litigation requires a sophisticated understanding of how our California courts view ownership rights, construction codes and inverse condemnation and eminent domain laws. To be consistently successful, a lawyer can’t just handle the occasional case. I have focused most of my 30-year career in this complex and unique area of the law.” Attorney Joseph Liebman

Our firm concentrates on all areas of real estate litigation, including:

  • Landslide and Flood damage, Construction defects, Earth Movement, Subsidence: We protect the rights of property owners who face devastating financial losses resulting from landslides and flooding, insufficient land grading and preparation, flawed design, flawed construction workmanship and substandard building materials.
  • Eminent domain, Inverse condemnation & Regulatory Takings proceedings: Property rights are protected by the United State Constitution and the California Constitution. Local governments often skirt the law regarding full and fair payment to the owner, as well as the conditions under which a property may be condemned. We help property owners fight to protect their rights and financial interests. The government can be liable for damage it causes to real property even in the absence of negligence. It is our job to ensure that the property owner receives full compensation as provided for in the Constitution. If the government causes damage to your property, you are entitled to “just compensation” under the law.
  • Real estate fraud: If you have been defrauded in the purchase of a home, land or building due to the fraudulent concealment of defects or problems with the property, we will fight aggressively to help you recover full compensation for your damages.
  • Real estate insurance bad faith practices litigation: If you have had a property insurance claim denied or you have been unfairly compensated by your insurance company after damage suffered in a fire, earthquake or other natural disaster, we will vigorously uphold your right to receive the full compensation you are due under terms of your policy.
