Hacienda Heights Business Litigation and Trial Attorney
Hacienda Heights is an affluent, unincorporated place in Los Angeles County, below the Puente Hills of the San Gabriel Valley. Originally an agricultural town, starting in the 1940’s and accelerating in the 1950’s, suburban residential development transformed Hacienda Heights into a residential or bedroom community. In the 1970s, much of Hacienda Heights, particularly along the northern slopes of Puente Hills, was developed for suburban single-family housing, which attracted younger, more affluent and educated families.

Real estate disputes among sellers, buyers, brokers, developers either in breach of contract, fraud (including nondisclosure of material facts about the property) or commission disputes: A business needs a place to “live” and that commercial or industrial property is often leased or purchased.

Tony Liu can make sure those contracts protect your interests and enforce them if they’re breached. If you feel your business is suffering because of a contract with another, he can review it to determine what your options are, including negotiating with the other party an end to the contract.
