Palo Alto Litigation Attorneys Handle Real Estate Disputes

How we can help you

At Chiles and Prochnow, our practice is limited to litigation.  This focus permits us to leverage our 70 plus years of combined experience to provide you with high-quality advocacy.  As Palo Alto attorneys, we understand how valuable real estate in California can be and recognize that is high value may exacerbate the intensity of the dispute.  While we often see similar issues in real estate disputes, each case presents a unique set of facts and concerns. We tailor our approach to you and your needs.

Representing you in a variety of real estate disputes

Our firm represents both individuals and businesses.  If you or your business faces a claim for breach of contract, we can defend you from undeserved liability. Conversely, if another party has failed to adhere to an agreed-upon contract or committed a tortious act against you, we can advance your claim for damages and other relief.  Our Palo Alto lawyers handle:

  • Purchase and sale contracts
  • Unlawful detainers
  • Concealment of defects
  • Failure to disclose defects
  • Leasing disputes
  • Title disputes
  • Escrow litigation
  • Mold litigation

Regardless of the reasons for the dispute, we craft a legal strategy that is best suited for your specific situation and goals. We can negotiate an out-of-court settlement, represent you in arbitration or advocate for you in litigation.

Arbitration, mediation and alternative dispute resolution

Arbitration and mediation are two forms of alternative dispute resolution. The goal of alternative dispute resolution is to reduce time and expense in arriving at a resolution while minimizing conflict. Many real estate matters and construction defect disputes are arbitrated rather than litigated in the civil court system.  We can assist in both arbitration and mediation.
