Richter, Esq. successfully defended landlord clients in a Santa Monica jury trial and obtained a sizable verdict in favor of their client, plus attorneys’ fees and costs, on a cross-complaint in a complicated real estate matter involving landlord/tenant disputes, construction issues, intentional misrepresentations, failure to disclose and punitive damages.
