Mr. Lauria fights for his clients! He knows the law completely and will do whatever it takes to win. He kept me updated, and his communication was terrific. When everyone else said no, he said yes....and we won!
Mr. Lauria is the best attorney in the city of Los Angeles when it comes to rent control, and landlord tenant issues. When the opposition sees that the attorney for the plaintiff or defendant is Mr. Lauria, they know that they do not stand a chance. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and is the hardest working Lawyer you will ever find. He never gives up until justice is served, and is an overall great human being. He is very well known among other attorneys, and has a very good reputation. Unfortunately he doesn't receive the recognition he deserves yet but hopefully he will. He deserves it.
Mr. Lauria is one busy man! Of course he is, anyone who wants to win a case hires him! My landlords fear him and see a lost case whenever represented by Chris. I say this because Chris has won over 5 cases against these abusive landlords, including my case, in which they accused me of everything they could think of for the sake of getting me and my family out of my apartment.
Not only did Chris win my case, he also caught a witness lying under oath. She lost credibility then and there. She stated that Chris was confusing her during cross examination. Of course, she wasn't prepared for the kinds of questions Mr. Lauria asks, more so because she was deliberately lying. I can't thank Chris enough for defending me and winning my case! I have shown my neighbors that we have rights which protect us, and guided by the right person, we can defend ourselves!
I have learned a lot from Chris, he has taken the time to explain things thoroughly. I have referred a couple of neighbors to his office because he knows his stuff. He will fight for your rights! I will continue referring people who need this kind of help to him.
Mr. Lauria knows his business. He's the only lawyer I found who knows and understands rent control laws, and he really knows how to fight! He first defended me against a landlord who was forcing me out of a rent controlled apartment, and then later went on to win a large six figure judgment against that landlord in a civil lawsuit. I would definitely recommend Mr. Lauria to anyone who is in a rent controlled apartment and finding themselves being abused or forced out.
