Fowler Law Group represents landlords and management companies in defense of tenant suits and regulatory actions, including: wrongful, retaliatory, and constructive eviction; personal injury and property damage from habitability defects; and security issues. Our litigation department is experienced in and
understands the complexities of California’s habitability laws. These laws provide plaintiffs with many tools to attack landlords, including statutory penalties, and in some instances prevailing party attorney’s fees. Our extensive construction defect liability experience helps us understand defects that can create habitability issues, and evaluate reasonable repairs. Our experience in premises liability allows us to evaluate alleged personal injuries, property damage, and security issues to determine an appropriate defense strategy. We know the importance of an immediate investigation and evaluation of these claims to correct issues and reduce or cut-off liability. We work with government agencies and experts to identify potential habitability issues and provide an early assessment of liability to evaluate the risk of each action so that educated and informed decisions can be made on whether to settle or litigate these claims.
