Unlawful Detainer Actions to Evict Tenants
If your tenant has illegally retained possession of your property, you may need to act soon to evict him or her. The firm's attorneys represent landlords at the unlawful detainer trial. They pursue evictions and money judgments for owners, including:
- Back rent owed by the tenant
- Damage to the property caused by the tenant (over and above normal wear and tear)
- Other monetary damages
Quick Recovery of Your Property
In California, unlawful detainer lawsuits have preference over other disputes. Once your attorney files the unlawful detainer action in Superior Court, you will get a court date within 20 days of the request to the court to set the case for trial. This may not seem like a short amount of time when you have someone illegally living on your property, yet it is many months or even years shorter than other legal actions.
