The mission of the firm is to provide an exceptional client experience — from first touch to last — while delivering outstanding California real estate legal services


Industry Expertise

Our firm is actively involved in trade associations throughout the real estate value chain – from financing to sales to property management. Most of the attorneys in our firm are licensed real estate brokers with the California Bureau of Real Estate, so we know the law and the business. Our attorneys participate in, and serve leadership roles on many industry associations and local committees, including the Silicon Valley Association of REALTORS® (SILVAR), San Mateo County Association of REALTORS® (SAMCAR), Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the Palo Alto & Santa Clara County Bar Associations.

Boutique Law Firm

A "boutique" law firm is a small, high-quality law firm that practices in a select few practice areas, placing an emphasis on client service. Boutique law firms offer a cost alternative to the high billing rates of large law firms, since boutique firms have much less overhead costs. Additionally, where large firms treat clients like a number or case file, boutique law firms allow clients to directly contact the qualified and experienced attorneys working on their matter. Our firm is a proud member of the International Network of Boutique Law Firms (INBLF), and as a boutique firm practicing exclusively in real estate law, we place a high priority on client service and direct contact with our highly-qualified attorneys.


Since our firm is located in the global epicenter of technology in Silicon Valley, we are no stranger to the developments that have taken place during the technology revolution. Our law firm stays on the cutting edge of technology, to not only meet the expectations of our clients, but to also deliver the most efficient legal services possible. To maximize our legal work, we deploy state-of-the-art time tracking and case management software, along with best-in-class cyber security protections of our case files. We offer clients the opportunity to connect with us through video teleconference — our firm even has a telepresence robot!
