REAL ESTATE CASES:
(The following are brief descriptions of some of the cases of
which our clients authorized us to release the information and/or waived the attorney-client privilege)
Los Angeles Superior Court Case Number 07K22285: Our client made a $13,400.00 deposit into an escrow to buy a real property. The seller through his attorney claimed in part that our client waived the loan contingency in the California Association of Realtors form after 17 days and refused to instruct the escrow to return the deposit. We filed the law suit and took the deposition of the seller’s real estate agent who testified that the seller’s attorney was also her attorney. The case went to trial. The court held in our client favored and ordered that the seller pay our client back the $13,400.00 deposit. We then filed a motion to request attorney fee and costs. Although the seller’s attorney opposed the motion, the court added to the original judgment $2,122.00 in interest, $12,500.00 in attorney fee and $1,775.00 in costs for a total judgment of$29,797.00.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Case Number YC058856: Quiet Title Action+ (Pending)
Orange County Superior Court Case Number 06CC11830: We spent hundreds of hours pro bono (free) representing a temple Wat Phosayaram of Orange County in various motions and a trial to successfully recover a temple against a “monk” Vongsavanh Sirivongsa who filed conflicting declarations under penalty of perjury and testified at his deposition and trial that he owned the temple by himself, that the buddhist community donated money to him to buy the temple as his residence, that the people occasionally rented the temple from him for various ceremonies. Although the monk was represented by three very experienced trial attorneys, he was sanctioned more than $5,000.00 and we also successfully obtained a judgment against the monk that the temple Wat Phosayaram of Orange County owned the temple and not the “monk”.
FAMILY LAW CASES:
ALTHOUGH WE WILL GIVE OUR CLIENT OUR BEST OPINIONS AND RECOMMEND SHE/HE PUT ASIDE HER/HIS PERSONAL FEELING AND SETTLE HIS/HER CASE, WE ARE EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO LITIGATE HER/HIS CASE TO PROTECT HER/HIS INTERESTS. BELOW IS ONE OF SUCH CASES:
Los Angeles Superior Court Case Number BD403169: Although the petitioner and our client held a large ceremony at a temple, held each other as husband and wife, had a child together, and filed joint tax returns for over 10 years, they had never registered to get married. Although they bought only a house together, the petitioner filed a petition for divorce, spousal support and equal division of all other properties which were held in our client’s name only. After we were retained by our client, we proposed that the petitioner and our client share only the house which was held under both their name and that our client keep all other properties held under his name alone. The petitioner rejected the offer and insisted on spousal support. We filed the points and authorities to oppose the petition. The court ruled in our client’s favor.
