Daniel Bornstein and his team are top notch handling every aspect of property law in the Bay Area. Considering they are one of the toughest and roughest players in the game these reviews show just how remarkable of a job they do for their clients. They have so much experience on all sides of these issues that I can’t imagine many coming close to matching them. I have worked a lot with one of their managers, Jonas Judd. He has an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge about every aspect of landlord and tenant problems. There isn’t much he hasn’t seen and he takes pride in knowing more about managing properties than anybody I have met in the business. He not only gets the issues, but understands the best approach to take to get them resolved successfully.
