Construction Law

Adler Law has frequently assisted with the following legal challenges during residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure construction projects.

  • Construction Defects: When there are defects in the construction of your new home or building, your investment can be jeopardized. If the contractor won’t repair the damage or your insurance company shies away from covering losses, we can help.
  • Construction Contracts: We can assist you with reviewing, drafting, and negotiating a construction contract. When we create an agreement for you, it will contain terms and conditions that help you realize the greatest possible profit while protecting you against liability.
  • Mechanic’s Liens: When a contractor, subcontractor, or supplier has provided work for a project but has not been paid, Adler Law can assist in filing a mechanic’s lien that secures their right to compensation.
  • Stop Payment Notices: A stop payment notice establishes a lien on undisbursed funds held by a project owner or lender. It can ensure that contractors and others get paid in situations where mechanic’s liens are not feasible, such as a public works project.

Real Estate

If you are buying, selling, or leasing property in or around Calabasas, you can turn to Adler Law with confidence. We are in tune with the local real estate market and the conflicts that can arise during transactions, and can provide the following legal services:

  • Quiet Title: Quiet title disputes arise when property or land ownership is in doubt. There may have been an improper real estate transaction, unrecorded easement, or old mortgage. Adler Law can initiate a quiet title action that removes opposing claims or challenges, leaving you with a clean title.
  • Partition Actions: If you own a property with other parties and everyone cannot agree on what to do with it, you may bring a partition action before the court. We will advocate for your desired outcome when the court divides each owner’s interest in the property.
  • Broker Disputes: Broker disputes can be caused by a variety of issues, such as contractual disagreements and nonpayment of brokerage fees. No matter what the situation, Adler Law can provide the counsel and advice needed to resolve the matter.
  • Real Estate Litigation: Property is a substantial investment, so protecting it is important. We handle all types of real estate disputes, including boundary issues, contract challenges, and commercial leasing disagreements.
  • Property Purchase and Sale Agreements: In property transactions, both buyer and seller need to protect their interests and rights. We limit your risk by ensuring that your purchase or sale agreement is correctly drafted.
  • Agent Disputes: Real estate agents are expected to follow standard industry practices as well as regulatory and statutory requirements. When they fail to do so, we can help you seek appropriate damages.
  • Homeowners Association (HOA)/CC&R Disputes: The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R) is a key document for every Homeowners Association. When an HOA makes decisions that impact or harm your property, Adler Law will be your voice in the ensuing dispute.

Restraining Order Law

If you are a victim of being stalked; harassed; sexually assaulted; threatened, physically abused and/or financially abused, there are California Restraining Order laws that exist to protect you.

There are different types of Civil restraining orders, each with their own eligibility requirements and steps to obtain that restraining order.

The three main types of restraining orders are:
1) Domestic Violence Restraining Order
2) Civil Harassment Restraining Order
3) Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order

  • WHAT IS A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESTRAINING ORDER?
  • Victims of domestic violence may request a domestic violence restraining order, if the victim and his or her abuser are in a domestic relationship or are closely related. Relationships between the victim and the abuser that are eligible for domestic violence restraining orders include: 1) a married couple; 2) domestic partners; 3) divorces; 4) dating or formerly dating couples; couples who share a child or children; 5) couples that live together or formerly resided with one another (A roommate scenario is insufficient to qualify as a domestic relationship.).
  • WHAT IS A CIVIL HARASSMENT RESTRAINING ORDER?
  • It is a court order that helps protect people from harassment. Civil Harassment Restraining Orders are different from Domestic Violence Restraining Orders in that the person harassing is not related to a person you have dated or who are closely related. A person may seek protection if you are worried about your safety because you are being: stalked; harassed; sexually assaulted; threatened; or there have been acts of violence against you by someone with whom you do not have an intimate or familial relationship with, such as a neighbor or roommate, great-grandparent, great-grandchild, niece/nephew, aunt/uncle, cousin, classmate, etc.
  • WHAT IS AN ELDER ABUSE RESTRAINING ORDER?
  • An elder (age 65 or older) or dependent adult (ages 18-64 with physical and/or mental disabilities) abuse restraining order applies to a person seeking a protective order who falls within the definition of an elder or dependent adult, and a victim of: physical or financial abuse; neglect, abandonment, or isolation; treatment that has been physically or mentally harmful to the elder or dependent adult; a deprived by a caregiver of goods or services you needed to avoid harm or suffering, or emotionally abused by a caregiver.

    Although the California Restraining Order laws are designed for a layperson to handle themselves, the timelines, procedures and hearings are fast paced and an experienced lawyer can help insure success. Let our office help you migrate through the process and help you achieve the protection you seek.
