Representative Matters :

  • Represented an individual against a global financial services firm in an action over title to property. Secured summary judgment holding that the bank’s deed of trust, in excess of $1 million, had been wiped out in a trustee’s sale.
  • Defended a Southern California company against theft of trade secrets and trademark infringement claims. The case was successfully removed from Arizona to California, and the procedural maneuvering resulted in a favorable settlement for the client.
  • Obtained a preliminary injunction against an owner’s use of a bathroom in behalf of a homeowner’s association.
  • Represented a lender and obtained summary judgment that its deed of trust – which was behind a home equity line of credit – was entitled to equitable subrogation in the full amount. A decline in property values effectively wiped out the home equity line of the credit lender.
