Verdicts/Settlements

  • Partition lawsuit settlement. The parties were both on title and our client wished to sell the property to receive his equity. Settlement was complicated because Defendant wished to keep the property and amount of equity was low. In order to maximize client's proceeds we allowed for client's credit to continue to be used for up to 5 additional years for additional compensation, if Defendant fails to refinance or sell within 5 years then property to be sold at that time to free up client's credit. Opposing counsel was not a Real Estate Attorney so I had to take lead throughout the settlement process including operating as escrow, negotiating with a judgment lien holder and recording the new title, 2021
  • I represented a homeowner who lost their home to foreclosure after the lender violated the CA Homeowner's Bill of Rights. I appealed the lower court ruling on Demurrer and won on appeal, the case was published and is still current law related to Wrongful Foreclosure - Valbuena v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, (Cal. App. 2 Dist., 2015). The case went on and eventually settled in a confidential settlement, 2015
  • Five Partition/Quiet Title Lawsuits Settled - In most of these cases there are some offsets that the parties are arguing over, including ouster, rent collected, property expenses paid. The quiet title portions were not serious and the parties settled for the interest they had in title plus any offsets. Sometimes we have to bring a referee into the matter to force the sale if a defendant defaults, but client is able to have our fees paid from escrow first before the proceeds are split, 2021
  • Malicious Prosecution Action - Client hired my after receiving a second identical lawsuit filed against them for Breach of Contract and Intentional Interference with Contractual Relations. Client purchased a home as an investment to fix and flip, however another buyer claimed they had entered into an agreement with seller to buy the home. The other buyer filed suit but was only interested in my client who was a bona fide third party purchaser without notice. It was immediately clear that the other buyer only wished to bully my client into turning the property over to them, since there was no notice to my client and they did not pursue the seller for damages. We immediately expunged the lis pendens, were awarded attorneys fees, they dismissed the case, we filed and won a CCP 128 motion for sanctions. After attempting to negotiate with the other buyer for the damages my client suffered due to the baseless lis pendens (no offers made by them) we had no choice but to file an action for Malicious Prosecution. They filed an anti-SLAPP motion which we won and they appealed. Eventually we reached a universal settlement where clients were able to recover most of the damages incurred, 2021
  • Divorce Property Distribution Settlement - Day of trial I negotiated a settlement on behalf of client. The client hired me just a few months prior to the hearing, after preparing for trial I reached out to opposing counsel to see if his client was open to settlement. Prior to hiring me client was offered zero for her alleged interest in the primary residence, including offers made to her prior counsel. I also negotiated down her prior attorney liens for a fraction of what was allegedly owed, providing client with a six figure settlement value, 2021
