We work hard to earn each client's trust.
We work hard to earn each client's trust.
We are a law firm based in Southern California. Our growing team is uniquely equipped to handle a variety of legal matters on behalf of individuals and businesses. The firm was founded in response to business owners, friends and family expressing concerns about the difficulty in finding attorneys that are truly dedicated to serving the best interests of their clients. The task of finding the right attorney is becoming increasingly difficult due to a number of ongoing trends, including generalist attorneys marketing themselves as specialists, online marketing companies posing as law firms, and the rising costs of large law firms.
The goal of AR | Legal Team is to provide clients with exceptional “big firm” results for a reasonable “small firm” price.
Our experienced real estate attorneys focus on commercial real estate transactions, with a particular focus on commercial real estate leases (including NNN leases), and purchase and sale agreements. The firm represents a number of shopping center owners and single-tenant triple net (NNN) investors, as well as family offices and domestic and international companies engaged in the acquisition, disposition, financing and leasing of industrial, office, hotel, multi-family, and land portfolios.
Since founding the firm, Alex has been committed to assembling a diverse group of talented and compassionate professionals that share a genuine interest in understanding the unique circumstances faced by each client. Each attorney is an expert in his or her chosen practice area(s), but, most importantly, strives to keep each client informed and generally pleased with the level of service provided. Our litigation team focuses on personal injury and employment law matters. Aside from our highly regarded litigation attorneys and dedicated case managers, our personal injury team includes a registered nurse, which enables the firm to reach a level of understanding and compassion that is unmatched by other personal injury law firms. We invite you to contact us to learn more about our specialties and background.
Prior to founding AR | Legal Team, Alex focused on helping clients with respect to their commercial real estate transactions while working at regional and international law firms, and later as in-house counsel for national and international private equity groups focused on commercial real estate ventures in major cities across the country.
