Hi, I'm Andy Baker. I've been proud to serve clients from the Bay Area down to Southern California and Orange county out to the desert communities for the past 25 years as a real estate attorney. I know how to help people in situations that are similar, or identical to yours. I was a real estate agent in Los Angeles for over 13 years. I was pretty familiar with real estate problems. But it wasn't enough; legal issues kept cropping up. In fact, I spent so much time on the phone with my real estate attorney that I decided to become one! This combination of experience gives me a “real-world” perspective. This allows me to resolve all of your real estate matters by crafting creative and pragmatic solutions.

I have been professionally assisting apartment owners and homeowners in all kinds of situations for years. I have run into many of the barriers that you can expect to run into, and many that you would never expect. I still get surprised by what can happen. Most situations seem straight-forward, but take unexpected turns.
For litigation (I know - the bane of a property owner's existence), I try and negotiate settlements before disputes result in litigation.
However, sometimes people won't listen to reason, and a lawsuit results. I both bring and defend litigation involving tenants, landlords, subtenants, licensees, property managers, and related parties of commercial, industrial and residential properties. I provide assertive, yet thoughtful representation in real estate matters.
I will protect your rights in mediation, arbitration and litigation, regarding all of these kinds regardless of the type of issues.
Protecting Your Rights in Real Estate Law On the transactional side of the ledger, I can save you time and trouble.
I could have (and once did have) a firm with a number of lawyers providing client services. But I prefer an individualized client approach.
"I have known and worked with Andy Baker for years. He is always prepared, and has the uncanny ability to see problems before they develop. I always consult with Andy before I make a major business decision and through the years he has saved me a bundle."
