When it comes to real estate, Ronald Peck knows the art of the deal and the art of a deal gone wrong. When facing the stress of real estate litigation, retaining an attorney with substantial knowledge about California property laws and civil litigation can lighten the burden. By assertively applying extensive knowledge of all aspects of property rights, civil procedure, finance and business, I can handle your disputes related to:
I work towards an optimal and expedient solution to all disputes.
Eminent domain is the power of the government to take private property for public use. The process involves condemnation of your property, appraisal of its value, an offer to purchase and negotiation for a fair price. If the government offers an unsatisfactory amount of compensation or your property was improperly designated for public use, you can sue to halt the eminent domain process or receive the compensation you deserve. I protect clients’ property from eminent domain abuses.
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, I can also help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, I help you to protect your property and your business.
ADR refers to other means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. Some contracts require binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation to resolve disputes that arise out of the transaction governed by the agreement. When the cost and time of litigation exceeds the likely outcome, you may choose to settle instead. If negotiating a settlement, my experience directs the proceedings toward a desirable outcome.
