Exactly what I needed
Mr. Piotrowski gave me advice, pointed out weaknesses in my rental agreement, and provided a way going forward for me to be in the best legal standing. He also cited specific civil codes for me read up on to get more details. This is exactly what I needed out of a consultation. He is obviously very knowledgeable and experienced in this matter. As we know, Los Angeles has some very strict landlord-tenant laws which heavily favor the tenant (yes, even the “bad” ones). The point is that I feel very much at ease and secure about my situation because of his thorough and easy to understand explanations. This is basically exactly what I needed from a consultation call. It is invaluable because money does not buy peace of mind.

Knowledgeable & Concise
I use David's firm for an urgent tenant issue. I was able to set up a consultation appointment swiftly all the way from Hong Kong with 15 hours time difference. David reviewed the documents I uploaded and was able to provide me a quick summary of the latest regulations. I particularly like the portal where you could submit information and documents on the issue at hand. It was a concise, timely, no non-sense meeting. I plan on hiring David's firm for my on-going tenant related matters. Thank you!

Current eviction law to help in due dilligance to purchase a rental property
I needed a consultation about the current eviction laws (May 2021) as I am in the process of due diligence to purchase a SFH with an existing tenant. I needed an expert in this specific niche of landlord law, the information he provided gave me additional knowledge to make an informed decision. The consultation was very good- answered my questions accurately and gave me the knowledge to factor into how or if I wished to proceed. To make the best use of time, before the telephone consult, the office sent me a simple questionnaire to fill out prior to the paid telephone consult. This form asked for background information about the purpose of the call and what I hoped to accomplish. This was a good idea as I was able to distill my thoughts into direct questions and think of other questions that could be answered during the consult. By giving the information prior, David P was up to speed on what I needed and no time was wasted. If you are a owner/landlord with rental property I suggest you have a consultation (telephone works well) with David if you have any inkling or thought there may be any legal or potential legal challenges in dealing with tenants. Being accurately informed before something happens or gets out of hand is well worth your time. I am very happy with the legal advice he provided. Now I made make an well informed decision

Excellent eviction lawyer!
Highly recommend David if you are in need of a great eviction lawyer!! I tried to save a few bucks and go the DIY route, but not worth it! Too many strict California laws. So happy my sister found Attorney David Piotrowskii for me after reading multiple reviews!! He knows the laws inside and out. Excellent communication skills as he kept us apprised of every step along the way! Trust me, in the long run you’ll save money going with someone who is knowledgeable, competent, and easy to work with!

Client
I have used David's services three times for three different tenants (3-day notice through eviction). He's very attentive to the needs of his clients. He communicates (primarily via email) well with his clients. However, if you need to talk to him, he makes himself available based on his schedule. I have been very satisfied with his services and would highly recommend him for your unruly tenants.

Eviction completed!
David helped us through the complete eviction process. DO NOT try to do this without professional help! There are many issues that need to be done correctly, or your case can fail. He was very professional and always returned our emails and calls very promptly.

Top Notch Legal Advice
I was in a real fix with a problem tenant and did not know where to turn. I’m lucky I called the Law office of David Petrowski. He is guiding me through the labyrinth of trying to remove a difficult tenant. From now on, I will turn nowhere else with my legal issues. Thank you David

Property owner.
I have used David's legal services numerous times, and until I found him I had been very disappointed with the quality of legal service which I had received. His work is top class. The judge at trial even commented at how excellently written David's 3 day notice was. It encapsulated the important points, and ultimately, this was why I won at trial, because the 3 day notice was admitted into evidence, and couldn't be retracted later. David is very honest and ethical too, and he also explains every step in the legal process to his client.

Realtor for over 30 years
I am a realtor for over 30 years. I have had come across many eviction processes for my clients as well as my own. I also have dealt with few other eviction attorneys prior. My experience with David Piotrowski has been the best so far. Process was as expected and expressed by David. David is prompt in his responses and follow ups. Truly appreciated his professional expertise and results. By all means I will recommend him to all.

Successful eviction
David helped me with a tenant that I had to evict due to misconduct and inappropriate behavior. During the very first conversation he explained the process in detail, including things I needed to be mindful of to ensure a successful outcome. His service was prompt and professional. He uses technology expertly which accelerates the paperwork process, yet always is available by phone or email. The eviction was successful without needing to go to court. I am very happy with David's service. I would retain him again and recommend him highly.

Hired for Landlord & Tenant legal Service
The saying is “If it's too good to be true, then it probably isn’t true”, David Piotrowski is the exception to that. I needed immediate help with dealing with my tenant, so I contacted David whom I had looked up on line due to his 5 star rating. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised that on the same day that I called David, he sent me all the forms needed for him to understand and act on my case. He caught and corrected all my mistakes, he served the 3-day notice on the same day, and I received my rent money the next day! David is unbelievably effective, extremely thorough, and very polite professional and knowledgeable. He explained everything in detail, so I knew exactly what I would face in various scenarios of how my tenant might respond, and how much each step in each scenarios would cost me. I would highly recommend Law Office of David Piotrowski for Landlord and Tenant legal services.

Attention Landlords
This would be my third review of David Piotrowski, first Yelp, then Google and not here. I write these because I don't want people to make the mistakes I made. When the tenant stops paying things get expensive. The Do-it-yourself method does not work well and time is not in your favor. Get the right person and pay the money, it works out better in the long run. David communicated every step of the way. Every detail and this was reassuring that things are moving and there is an end to what felt like a death spiral. Long story short, he got the job done, exactly in the timeframe he predicted and without any surprises. Use his service, you will sleep better and when it is over, like child birth (I hear) you can forget all about that bad tenant and move on. Thank you again David.
