I specialize in representing developers of residential and commercial real estate developments.

I work regularly with builders and developers to obtain subdivision public reports from the California Bureau of Real Estate and approval of subdivision documents from local city and county planning departments. I also work with developers and lenders on broken common interest development projects.
