Results From Commercial Construction Cases

Chalk Hills, "Avalon" is a 664 unit apartment complex located in Woodland Hills, California. The William Lyon Company, manager of the complex, was deluged with tenant complaints of massive water intrusion into living units, garages, and other areas when the complex experienced heavy winter rains. The rains resulted in hundreds of leaks project-wide. The project owner, Copley Real Estate Advisors, was required to refinance the project but was impaired by the construction defects. Mr. Castro was given a very short time frame to complete litigation to enable refinancing. He "fast-tracked" the case to meet financial exigencies of the client and obtained the first $6,000,000 settlement in only eight months.
