Landlord & Tenant Law: I assist owners and property managers with problem tenants, for example, nonpayment of rent or failure to comply with other terms of rental agreements. If problems cannot be worked out informally, I file “unlawful detainer,” i.e. eviction, court proceedings against problem tenants to recover possession of the premises on behalf of my clients.
Trusts: A trust provides for the informal transfer of one’s assets to heirs without the delay and expense of probate court proceedings. I prepare concise, plain language documents, including a Declaration of Trust, Certificate of Trust, Advance Healthcare Directive, Pour-over Will, new deeds, and other essential components of the estate plan.
