Get to Know James Gilbert

I have been a practicing California lawyer for 20 years focusing on real estate and lending disputes.  I practice throughout California. 

With the recession, I am helping my real estate clients oppose their lender's attempts to put a receiver on their commercial property.  Receiverships can devastate an owner's ability to save a property from foreclosure because the receiver (who has no experience with the tenants at a particular property, any prospective tenants who may have indicated an interest in leasing space at the property or with the particular issues every property faces) will remove the owner and take over the management of the property.  You need a good, experienced lawyer fighting for the owner as early as possible to avoid a receivership, if at all possible.

I am also helping my real estate clients stop their lenders from foreclosing on commercial properties -- if at all possible.  This requires a careful analysis of your loan documents and the facts in each particular case.

In addition, I represent commercial landlords and tenants in connection with unlawful detainer -- i.e. eviction -- proceedings as well as other lease disputes.

I started with two of the largest law firms in the United States: Fulbright & Jaworski; and later Akin Gump. I recently joined Steckbauer Weinhart Jaffe -- a mid-sized law firm in Los Angeles.  My hourly rates are reasonable and I work hard to satisfy my clients in a cost effective manner.  

My practice is devoted to real estate litigation and arbitration including disputes involving commercial leases, purchase and sale, partnerships and LLC's, letters of credit, construction, creditor's rights, land use (CEQA) and lending (including workouts, foreclosures and receiverships). In addition, my firm handles bankruptcy, general business disputes, employment, real estate transactions -- purchase and sale, leasing and lending -- as well as corporate law.

I have represented buyers, sellers, agents, brokers, developers, owners, management companies, borrowers and lenders.

I welcome calls from any member of Active Rain.  Even if you need a lawyer in an area we don't handle, I will be happy to provide you with a referral.
