Commercial lease dispute:

Valerie and her team were great to work with! We were having issues with our Commercial space for several months and could not find a resolution with either Management or Ownership. After reaching out to Valerie and providing her with the details, she was able to build a case quickly and efficiently, even with an unexpected expedited timeline. She was in constant communication with us directly, always followed-up, and continued to advise us throughout the process. Sorting through and trying to decipher Leases, Amendments, and all other Commercial Real Estate terms can be a little daunting, but she took her time to explain things thoroughly and of course, advised us of any risks involved. Our issue was finally resolved in only two weeks! We could not be happier and wish we would have found her sooner. – J.T.

Investment property dispute:

As a real estate broker, property manager, and investor with over $100 million worth of real estate transactions in the Los Angeles area— Valerie Li is who I turn to for legal real estate advice and negotiation for transactional and legal matters. My group has known Valerie for years and she has always provided us with practical real estate advice, in service of the fact that the client’s ultimate goals are to resolve an issue or complete the transaction as efficiently as possible — and most importantly, to protect their return on investment.

There are many examples I can think of, but one in particular stands out to me.  We owned a property with a partner in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles.  There was a property line dispute with our neighbor.  When we initially reached out, the neighbor was not amenable to giving us an easement.  We reached out to Valerie for her advice with the thought we may have to go to litigation.  Valerie immediately was able to analyze the situation and figure out exactly the type of easement that we needed.  She was then able to get the neighbor to agree to sign off on the easement, working through some very difficult issues with the opposing counsel.  We were thrilled with this result and not having to go to court! – W.T.

Residential property sales advice:

As a first-time home seller with a potentially problematic property, Valerie was incredibly helpful during the sale.  She was always quick to respond to anything and everything, and always in an easy-to-understand manner.  I will definitely be hiring Valerie again in the future, in fact we’ve already spoken to her about a few new things unrelated to our home sale. – J.O.

Valerie Li was recommended to me as someone with the legal expertise to assist me with my real estate transaction.  Ms. Li’s guidance was thoughtfully considered and very responsive.  In addition, she was calm and firm in her careful protection of my interests despite pressure from my buyers’ representatives to proceed quickly with closing of the sale.  Ms. Li’s professionalism and expertise are truly exceptional. – M.A.

Contractor dispute:

Valerie represented us in a dispute with an unscrupulous contractor. Her assistance was invaluable! She was transparent, responsive, and overall a pleasure to work with. Her advice was accurate and timely, and with her help the dispute was resolved in our favor. We would without question work with her again. Recommended without reservations! – A.M.
