San Diego Real Estate Litigation

At The McClellan Law Firm, our lawyers represent individuals and businesses in real estate litigation of all kinds—from zoning problems and title issues to construction defects and commercial lease disputes.

Experienced in Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

We represent clients in residential and commercial real estate litigation involving issues such as:

  • Breach of a purchase and sale agreement
  • Specific performance of a purchase agreement
  • Construction defects and warranties
  • Zoning and land use problems
  • Commercial lease disputes involving options, renewal terms, or assignments
  • Landlord-tenant litigation in commercial, retail, or industrial property
  • Title problems involving easements, boundaries, or encroachments
  • Litigation between real estate developers and contractors

We understand the importance of achieving your litigation objectives in a prompt and cost-effective manner. We therefore do everything we can to resolve your dispute on favorable terms through negotiation whenever possible. If your real estate problem cannot be worked out informally, our experience with various forms of alternative dispute resolution can represent a major advantage to our clients in a mediation or arbitration setting.

If litigation remains the only practical option for the satisfactory resolution of your dispute, you can depend on our litigation attorneys to work closely with you and whatever forensic experts might be necessary to develop and document your position. The McClellan Law Firm enjoys a national reputation for excellence at trial, and we take pride in our ability to present complex facts and legal theories in easily understandable terms for the jury.

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”

  • “We wouldn’t be here, in this moment of life without the kindness and professionalism of you all and how you went to bat for us! Eternally grateful!”

  • “We will NEVER forget what you did for us Craig. We are FOREVER GRATEFUL.”

  • “Having had the high privilege of presiding over a number of cases involving national counsel, I want you to know you’re one of the very best [...]. You and those with you were outstanding ambassadors for our profession and once again made me most proud to be a part of our legal community.”

  • “We do not quite know how to verbalize or show how grateful we are to have had the distinct honor to have you represent us at truly the most critical time in our lives.”
