Paul focuses on solving problems. He works to create value for clients by efficiently solving them and by applying his experience in and out of court to present practical and creative solutions. Paul grew up in New England and graduated with honors from Boston University School of Law in 1996. Since 1998, he has practiced law in San Francisco at well-regarded litigation firms and has provided general counsel services to real estate brokers and startups in the Bay Area.

Paul concentrates on real estate matters, including:

  • Neighbor disputes regarding boundary lines, title issues, encroachments, easements, trees, fences, retaining walls, noise, gate and alley access, views and construction projects.
  • HOA matters between members or HOAs and members regarding CC&Rs, shared maintenance, noise, repairs, parking, short-term rentals and assessment issues.
  • Buyer and seller disputes arising from the purchase and sale of real estate regarding alleged misrepresentation and nondisclosure claims.
  • Outside general counsel services to real estate brokers and startups, including compliance issues, pre-litigation claims, contracts, forms and advisories, and commercial leasing.

For work-life balance, he stays active in his community. Paul teaches a course on legal research and writing at San Francisco State University. He received the Child’s Advocacy Award from Legal Services for Children in San Francisco for his pro bono work representing disadvantaged children and youth in the Bay Area. He regularly swims and rows in the San Francisco Bay as a member of the South End Rowing Club.
