An unlawful detainer is the process by which a commercial or residential landlord evicts a tenant for failure to pay rent, or failure to comply with a covenant in the lease. We have represented both commercial and residential landlords and tenants in eviction cases.
This area of the law, like so many others, requires extreme attention to detail to make sure that all procedural requirements are met.

What is and is not a valid reason for an eviction?
How quick can an eviction matter be finished?
How long will an eviction stay on my record?
Can I appeal my UD (unlawful detainer)?
Yes. If your case goes to trial you can appeal the outcome, but the appeal may not stay the eviction while the appeal is pending. This is an important thing to review, because if you are dispossessed of the property and the appeal takes a year to resolve you may not be interested in pursuing the appeal. You should pay particular attention on the time to file your appeal because depending on the classification of your case (limited or unlimited) that can effect the deadline for your appeal.
Also, just because you can appeal your case does not necessarily mean that your eviction will be stayed. You will have to file a motion to stay the eviction pending the appeal.
