The Blake Law Firm provided excellent legal services regarding a commercial real estate matter. Steve advised on a matter related to a landlord tenant dispute where the landlord was severely overreaching and was in default regarding obligations under the lease to complete tenant improvements. Steve provided council to help resolve the matter with a business-first strategy that helped my client avoid a lengthy litigation process and cost. I would recommend Steve to provide legal services in any commercial real estate-related context; leases, sale contracts for office, residential income, or industrial properties. I couldn’t be more pleased with his services.
I’m a homeowner here in coastal North County San Diego. I was planning improvements with my property and was struggling with getting approval from my HOA. I scheduled a consultation with Steve and he was able to step in and get the issues resolved quickly and to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend hiring Steve if you are in need of a real estate attorney!! He’s honest, straightforward and kept me updated at every stage.
After purchasing a new home from a developer we encountered construction related issues and found ourselves at an impasse with the developer. This all changed after seeking council from Blake Law firm. I was able to get the advice necessary to reach an agreement with the developer and the problems were resolved quickly. I would recommend Blake Law firm for any property related disputes.
Steve Blake’s professionalism and care for the client are what sets him apart. He not only knows the law, but he works hard to enable the client to understand the viable options and the potential consequences of each available alternative. In addition, his confident, yet calm demeanor in difficult situations makes the litigation process much smoother and less emotionally charged for the client than it might otherwise be, enabling logical, rational decisions on the part of the client.
Steve has done much work for us with great results. He is hard working, intelligent and ethical, and also keeps things in perspective, which is notable for a litigation attorney. He is my “go to” person for litigation in California. I value his work and enjoy our relationship.
Steve is an excellent lawyer who has represented our company on a number of matters. He can be counted upon to deliver high quality legal work and to communicate effectively with the member of our in-house legal team who is managing the matter.
