Successful Defense of Unlawful Detainer Actions
An eviction lawsuit is called an unlawful detainer. California law clearly spells out when and how a landlord can undertake an unlawful detainer action. While some landlords act lawfully, others do not. Even when a landlord is generally following the various statutes, there may be a fatal flaw in the landlord’s action that will unravel the unlawful detainer action.

Depending on your case, there may be multiple ways to defend an unlawful detainer action. We will look at every aspect of your situation and build a strong and persuasive case to stop the eviction process.
Call Legal Service Center As Soon As Possible
There are very short time windows and the legal eviction process is complicated. Along the way there are many possibilities for negotiations and ways to make the law work in your favor. As in most legal proceedings, the sooner we get started on your case the better the results. If you have been served with an unlawful detainer summons and complaint, you have exactly FIVE calendar days to respond. Those days INCLUDE Holidays and Weekends. If served on a Friday, the Saturday and Sunday reduces your 5 days to ONLY 3 remaining to draft a legitimate answer and file that answer at the courthouse Failure to respond within the VERY SHORT time limit will lead to the sheriff forcefully removing your from your home days later, unless you take immediate legal action.
Legal Service Center will respond quickly on your behalf. In some cases, we may be able to stop the eviction proceeding by merely informing the landlord why the unlawful detainer notice is defective. In other cases, we will have to aggressively assert your legal rights.
Even if you have been already been served with an eviction notice, it is not too late. We can seek a stay and may be able to prevent you from being evicted.
While non-payment of rent is a common cause of an unlawful detainer, the landlord may also want to evict you in order to rent the apartment at a higher rate or create a condominium unit that will be offered for sale. In these cases, the law has clear restrictions on how a landlord can proceed. We may be able to use the law to protect your home.
