The Bay Area's Preeminent

Bornstein Law aggressively represents, counsels, and advocates on behalf of rental property owners to power through the obstacles they face in achieving their real estate goals.

Bornstein Law equalizes the playing field through the staunch advocacy of property owners. Whether you find your rental business mired in a lease dispute, encounter problematic tenants, or face a myriad of other issues that impact housing providers, you can rely on proper counsel to manage legal relationships, avoid or resolve conflict, and cauterize risk.





The rental industry is experiencing the winds of legislative and regulatory change. Are you ready?

Although laws and regulations are in a constant state of flux, Bornstein Law designs to keep you abreast of the dizzying changes to survie and thrive in today's challenging and litigous environment. Peruse our knowledge base with helpful articles, downloadable PDFs, and other resources.
