Real Estate Litigation

Vondran Legal is a Premier Real Estate Arbitration & Litigation Law Firm

Attorney Steve Vondran started and launched his career as a real estate law firm.  We built our law firm representing real estate brokers, developers, licensees, realtors and investors in cases ranging from simple zoning issues to complex eminent domain.  When the foreclosure and predatory lending fiasco hit we fought Wall Street and Fortune 500 banks, loan servicers, and securitized loan trusts in a wide variety of real estate litigation in both state and federal courts, and in adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court.  We still maintain the fight today in select cases.

We also handle a wide variety of general real estate litigation cases including cases where Brokers are sued for breach of fiduciary duty and carriers issues reservation of rights letters and you may need to seek appointment of cumis counsel.  Steve Vondran has earned real estate broker licenses in both California and Arizona, and he has industry experience in mortgage lending, residential and commercial real estate (he sold industrial real estate).  We know real estate and we fight hard to win in the Plaintiff or Defendant cases we handle.  We are also experienced in real estate arbitration cases.
