I can't afford to hire attorney and he gave me options Places I could call to help resolve my problem.
Knowing that I probably couldn't afford a lawyer and had a very serious problem that would upgrade my entire life financially housing and otherwise he took the time to refer numbers to me that I could call to possibly get some help. Even followed up with me a day or two later to see if the numbers helped me with my problem I have never met him and probably couldn't afford to have him yet he was carrying genuine and I would not hesitate to hire him

Caring, thorough tenants rights attorney
This is an attorney that will fight for your rights. I lost my job during the pandemic and my landlord wanted to evict me after living there over 30 years. Needless to say that Mr. Babcock has bought me enough time to ease my anxiety and keep my landlord from stressing me out. Highly recommend this attorneyS

DAVID SLAYS APPALLING MODERN DAY GOLIATH
Thank God for Bartley Babcock the best Unlawful Detainer lawyer in existence! And a star litigator! I found myself in the most stressful unlawful detainer case brought by my egregious landlord Douglas Emmett. I live in rent controlled Santa Monica. One lie compounded by more lies and all of a sudden I was cast as a bad guy, in the judicial system, where I was treated as a non-person with no integrity. Bartley to the rescue! From the first meeting I knew I was in good hands. Meticulous with Briefs and very familiar with ‘low rent control paying tenants being evicted at any cost’ scenario, Bartley is brilliant, calm and fierce as he fought for me against 6 lying witnesses, a judge with very questionable motives – please don’t be naïve a company like Douglas Emmett own over 1,000 office buildings in Los Angeles County mostly renting to law firms. LA County judges are familiar with them and their pattern and practices. Bartley was undeterred, focused and kept pounding away with the facts and law. He was awesome! The jury saw through all the lies and I am sleeping just fine in my apartment of 30 years! Long time rent control tenants are targets for big corporations like Douglas Emmett. One apartment at market value can add half a million dollars to their bottom line and enabling them to purchase more buildings. Call Bartley Babcock! I am so grateful

A Lawyer's Lawyer
Mr. Babcock is an excellent lawyer who not only has a talented legal mind, but also a very calm and patient bedside manner. Mr. Babcock's clients are usually facing extremely stressful situations, like I was when threatened with eviction from my rent controlled home of over 35 years on a pretextual claim of nuisance. Mr. Babcock was there every step of the arduous process to guide me and without ego, explain the nuances of the law. He took the matter to jury trial and expertly defeated the landlord, a huge corporation represented by a large law firm that used multiple lawyers during the trial. He connected with the jury immediately and won them over, securing a 9-3 verdict for me on the critical issue in her case. I strongly recommend Mr. Babcock for anyone that needs a strong attorney to fight eviction. He is fearless, organized, intelligent and steady as a rock. But most of all, he is extremely patient with clients (and I am fairly demanding) and shows them respect and compassion for the intensely emotional situations that they are in.

Expert Advice, Quick Turnaround Time, Professional
Money well spent! I called for what seemed like a petty small claims issue and Bartley personally responded to me in less than 12 hours to set up an initial consult for a few minutes. His advice was sound, professional, and thorough. Bartley was able to get at the heart of the matter by extrapolating and processing necessary information quicker than any other attorney I've spoken with to date. His advice was sound and considerate of both the small and large issues at hand. Finally an attorney with common sense, business sense, and specialized experience. If you're lookin for no-nonsense, specialized professional, go with Bartley Babcock!

Tenant needing Eviction Lawyer
Bartley was personable, professional, and thorough from the beginning. I have never had to get a lawyer before, so I was really nervous. He made me feel comfortable from the beginning and explained the process in a way I could understand. I’m grateful for having him in my corner!

Bartley Babcock's Demand Letter - Superb Job
Bartley Babcock's Demand Letter has helped a great deal in every way. I am so glad that I decided to seek legal advice from him regarding my case against my landlord. In my opinion, the Demand Letter made a difference in the attitude and behavior of the property manager and the management office. Mr. Babcock made me realize that a great Demand Letter is as good, if not better, than going to court because the results of that demand letter took effect against my landlord immediately. It was never about the financial claim against them; It was about the apartment manager realizing that illegal behavior has consequences, which includes law enforcement and filing a claim in court and/or a Demand Letter. He is worth every penny and then some. I will keep in touch, even if just to say everything is fine, and/or for future legal advice, which is very well worth paying for. Literally, I can't say enough great things about him. Mr. Bartley Babcock is so professionally wonderful and very pleasant to talk to over the phone. Vivian R J

Excellent Attorney
Bartley saved me. I was so fortunate to have found such a great lawyer! I have no idea where I would be today if I never had the good fortune of meeting Bartley. Bartley is one of the best. I was convicted of a DUI but was charged Wet Reckless. I am so grateful. He was absolutely amazing.

Trustworthy
I went to Bartley after dealing with other lawyers relating to a landlord / tenant issue. He immediately made me feel comfortable with his honesty and competence. Bartley offered me valuable advice relating to my potential case and even gave me advice in case I wanted to self represent myself during some pre-trail proceedings to cut down on trail expenses. I had to seek Bartley's advice in another potential legal matter and with his assistance he was able to intervene on my behalf and persuade the other party that taking me to court would be a waste of everyone's time and money. Other lawyers would have let the issue go to trail so they could collect all the associated fees. I will definitely consult with Bartley for any legal matters in the future, his fees are reasonable and well worth it.

Landlord 'Lease Renewal' Dispute
We all know the reputation of a typical attorney: rushing you through a conversation, charging thousands of dollars by the second, a dragged out process with often disappointing results, leaving the experience feeling just as confused and unsure about your situation as you had been going into it… When working with Mr. Babcock, this is NOT the case. Mr. Babcock takes his time. No rushing. Without judgment, he explained fully the complicated legality of my case to ensure that I had the knowledge I needed about my situation. After a (no charge) in depth phone consultation, Mr. Babcock promptly met with me in person to go over my concerns. He even prepared for our meeting while he was on vacation (Unheard of customer care and attention!) On top of this, the fee was extremely reasonable and considerably lower than other estimates I had received. But the true reason Mr. Babcock is the best is his genuine care and concern for his clients. Before Mr. Babcock I was nearly in tears over the dispute with my landlord, feeling overwhelmed and lost. After Mr. Babcock, I feel confident and well informed. It is a blessing knowing that I have Mr. Babcock in my corner.

Landlord /Tenant Case
Nobody enjoys having to hire a lawyer, especially in my situation as it should not have come to this point, but I'm really happy that I found Bartley Babcock. He was great in helping me with my landlord/tenant case. He was extremely thorough when listening to my side of the story and gathering all of the details necessary to support my case. He was also excellent at quickly learning the precise timeline of my case before my trial so that he knew exactly what the judge would be expecting to hear. He has an excellent grasp of California's landlord/tenant laws and he is very bright. He told me what the opposing attorney's legal arguments would be and he was spot on, he even told me what evidence we can gather to undermine the other side's arguments. Bartley Babcock also did an excellent job with shielding me from a large amount of intimidation and bullying that came from the property management’s lawyer, who was attempting to intimidate me into into negotiating a deal that was terrible for me. I highly recommend the Law Office of Bartley A. Babcock for dealing with legal issues pertaining to landlord/tenant conflicts.

Unlawful Detainer
I contacted Bartley Babcock in regards to an unlawful detainer I was served with. I had done a lot of reading of CA Landlord/Tenant law and knew my rights and retaliation from landlords (especially with zero rent ever late or past due). The case had a few moving parts, and he took the time to consult with me over the phone. It was a lengthy conversation - more so than with most any law firm or attorney you contact. Because of this conversation, my self-doubt was no longer and I went to court confident and got exactly what I wanted.

Tenant Landlord Case -- Amazing Attorney
I hired Bartley to represent me for a toxic mold and negligence case against the building management company of my former apartment. Bartley Babcock is am amazing attorney and fantastic person. I had some TERRIBLE experiences with other firms -- they were always rushing me, trying to get money for equally disappointing consultations, and never took the time to truly understand the situation I was in. I had begun to lose all hope in the justice system and attorneys in general. Bartley not only took my case, but actually made the process enjoyable. He handled it with ease, grace, patience, and even made me laugh from time to time. He help educate me about the process and for the first time over a 12 month process, I felt that someone truly had my best interest at heart. It was such a pleasure working with Bartley that recouping the financial damages almost seemed like a cherry on top. Words can not express how much Bartley helped me in my time of distress and how grateful I am to now have found my "go-to" lawyer in the instance I ever need one again. He has my highest recommendation.

Landlord/tenant issue
Let me start by saying my son was stuck in a lease in California at a dysfunctional apartment complex. I live in Florida and started researching landlord/tenant laws trying to get him out of this lease. Because of the distance and me not knowing that much about how "early" lease terminations work, I went online for advice. Not expecting much I was randomly referred to Mr. Bartley Babcock (thank god). Mr. Babcock went above and beyond with this case. He was able to negotiate a reasonable settlement with the apartment complex saving me money but more importantly he took this case personally as my son is a college student on a limited budget. I subsequently flew out to California to assist my son. The early lease termination went fine with no backlash from the leasing office ONLY BECAUSE WE HAD MR. BABCOCK on our side. I couldn't of found a better attorney if I look one up in the phone book!! If any future ligation arises in California I will always use Mr. Babcock.

Small claims
As the Plaintiff of a small claims court case it was hard to find a lawyer to help me when the defense filed an appeal. Bartley showed me he cared about my case, very willing to work with me in areas most would not. He acted fast, professional, Bartley will always be the attorney I use for any legal assistance.

Landlord sued
The thing about this attorney is that he spent a lot of time talking to me and calming me down because I thought I was going to lose $10,000 to my landlord who sued me in court. He was really cool and smart and he really fought in the emails I saw he wrote to the other attorney! He got the case dismissed with prejudice somehow and kept me informed every single day. Very reasonable prices and even drove to my house on a Sunday! (after I hired him)
