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."

"Andy recently 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 are collecting damages that exceed 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.”
