Excellent service & communication
Being a small family business in California can be challenging.Unfortunately we had a situation with tenants that were abusing and subleasing our property. We didn’t have a current lease just a verbal agreement because these tenants were trusted for so long.Needless to say this was a difficult situation to be in when trying to get them out of the property & we had never been in this situation before. After calling a few attorneys we decided to go with Katje law group and we’re glad we did. We spoke about what legal avenues we could pursue and we got a plan going. Now being this happened through Covid different counties were changing the rules on how landlords could legally evict, & I got a phone call & email to inform me of all changes. This was not a easy case but Katje law group has a great team and streamlined the process by promptly emailing whatever forms needed and keeping me updated on the process. If you’re looking for a lawyer to legally protect what you’ve worked so hard to obtain call Katje, you won’t be disappointed.

Understanding you law needs
I needed a law firm that could understand the sensitive nature of a family money matter. Katje Law Group did a great job in providing guidance and understanding of the matter. Their recommendations were based on my specific situation. Everyone at the practice was very supportive. Their help guided it to the appropriate conclusion and could not have done it without them.

Professional
I hired this firm for a partition lawsuit for a property owned with an ex boyfriend. Despite the prolonged time frames and lengthy process due to COVID-19 and court shut downs, I am grateful for September and her staff. I was finally able to sell the property and final judgement went in my favor. I must say, at the end, September went all in and truly showed her experience and knowledge as a professional, ensuring I received everything we had initially spoken about and of course everything that was fair. A true professional, I would highly recommend September and her staff!

Tenant/ Landlord
I had the pleasure to be represented by Joy Katje, she helped me by typing up a demand letter to my Landlord for my security deposit and a prorated amount of rent for the month of May. I was released from my contract due to management not upholding the leasing agreements. My attorney was very professional, informative, and always got back to me that same day if not the next. All of my questions were answered in a timely matter. I am glad I chose this firm and will definitely use them in the future.( If needed) I would highly recommend this firm to anyone that needs representation.

Fast and friendly
We needed a letter written with proper verbiage to try and get out rent deposit back. We had a consult that explained why we were legally entitled to the refund and what our options were. Our letter was written and mailed with ease. The staff was both patient and helpful. If we need any further services, we will definitely return.

Great attorney and staff
I had a matter that unfortunately i cannot go into any details about. CLLC was wonderful from start to finish. Professional ,courteous and always there to answer any questions I had. They have an excellent  client web portal as well.  As an older gentleman  I have had several attorneys in my life. So I knew that some were better than others.. Hands down this is a model law group. Which I believe will do an great job for every client that comes to them for help. If they can't help you they will help guide you to someone who can.

Great experience, I manage property and they really helped me out.
I was extremely stressed as someone was trying to take advantage of my elderly father who is going blind and deaf. I was 400 miles away and moved back while unsure how to deal with the matter. I literally called over 20 law firms in the area and more remote areas. As I work in customer service with FedEx I can imagine the kind of nightmare scenarios people who work in law have to deal with. In the end it was a simple consultation by this law firm that reassured me they were the right choice. Everyone I spoke to was extremely polite and attentive to my needs. Almost all of the other law firms I talked to where very short, unwilling to listen, and would even give me incorrect information. It honestly got so bad I legitimately considered selling my house. I am happy to announce things went in the best possible direction and should I have any problems of this nature in the future I will not hesitate to give this firm a call. I will also let my friends and family know about their service.

Amazing personal injury attorney
September and her team were amazing! From the very beginning they explained what was going to happen from start to finish. Whatever complaint I had, whether it was my neck or back, they made sure I had it checked and ensured I had the best care. They always got back to me within a timely matter, answered any questions I had, and would even call just to see how I was doing. My overall experience was amazing and would definitely recommend to anyone!
