Andy is very knowledgeable, helpful, and I have enjoyed working with him.  I realize that in LA, you really need a good real estate attorney, and that describes Andy Baker."

“I have hired Andy Baker twice to help me concerning my Accessory Building.  I am happy to report that I now have a legal ADU [Accessory Dwelling Unit] because of Andy’s help!  Very pleased.  Will use his services again for the lease agreement now that the legal process is completed.  I highly recommend his services.  His information has been completely accurate and helpful to me.”

“The most helpful idea I got from Andy Baker was to only deal with the City Attorney’s office and NOT the unorganized city departments.  Using his level of sophistication Andy immediately elevated our discussions with intelligent individuals handling the outcome." - Mark B,, Apartment Owner, Mid-Wilshire, CA

"I have been working in real estate for over 30 years, and have been relying on Andy Baker's advice for half that time.  He is very thorough, responds quickly, and keeps my stress down!"

After receiving a letter from the Housing Dept, I was in a panic!  I envisioned all the worst scenarios.  Andy quickly calmed me down and together we worked out solutions.  He was so knowledgeable and calm, he was just a pleasure to work with.  My experience with Andy was excellent."

"Andy Baker provided detailed and personalized attention to our legal matter.  With his legal advice and opinion he was  able to turn our city government into retracting their initial order to demolish an accessory structure on our property..  We had gotten nowhere in 6 months.  It only took Mr. Baker 2 weeks to get our city to respond. We commend Mr. Baker for his professionalism and look forward to recommending him to other residents  in our city."

"Andy handled a construction defect problem for me, avoiding litigation by skillfully negotiating a settlement.  He explained all the details to my wife and I, greatly easing our stress.  Andy wisely included a liquidated damages clause, and we  collected damages that exceeded the actual cost of the repair!  Anyone seeking personalized attention and professional legal representation would do well by Andy Baker.

“Andy provided me with all the legal information to get my guest house in full compliance with Building & Safety [and] legal issues will be avoided in the future.  He also helped me evict a problem tenant from a guest house.  He handed the distribution of relocation assistance funds through his escrow account to the tenant.  He also handled the LA Housing Department.  He kept me informed of my legal rights and accomplished all of his fiduciary duties with the highest level of care throughout the process.  Andy knows the eviction laws and the building codes inside and out.  I highly recommend Andy Baker and his services.”
