Expertise DescriptionI have more than 30 years experience in the area of Law with an emphasis on real estate and business litigation, and transactional work. My real estate transactional work includes negotiation and documentation of real estate purchase and sale agreements, secured transactions, leases, ground leases, options, formation of corporations and limited liability companies, Internal Revenue Code¡ § 1031 exchanges, development agreements, and co-tenancy agreements. I have over 10 years of expert witness experience with consultation, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
Areas of Expertise
I am an AV rated real estate attorney and an active California real estate broker. I taught Conquering Contracts for many years at one of the largest realtor associations in the country. I have sued and defended many real estate brokers and litigated hundreds of real estate cases (specific performance, damages, commission disputes) and closed hundreds of real estate transactions using the CAR forms.
I have been designated as an expert witness in several real estate development cases in which I opined about alter ego issues. In one case, I was deposed for four days by prominent lawyers for national firms and the case settled shortly thereafter. I represent, among others, developers, financial institutions, brokers and investors. I have both a litigation and transactional background. I am an AV rated real estate attorney practicing litigation and transactional work for 34 years.
