Unlawful Detainer Defense Lawyers

San Francisco · San Jose · Redwood City · Sacramento · Palo Alto · Oakland

An Unlawful Detainer action is a special court proceeding that landlords take to evict a tenant from a residential or commercial property. This usually happens when a tenant stays after the lease is up or the lease is cancelled. An Unlawful Detainer could occur quickly and usually the defendant has 5 days to file a response. You could have a trial shortly after that.
