About me

Dana Leigh Cisneros is an experienced and aggressive civil litigation attorney, focusing her efforts on Real Estate, Contract, Commercial, Business and Corporate Law.   She also advises clients on a wide array of business and insurance matters.

Mrs. Cisneros prides herself on a strong commitment to maintaining the highest level of professional responsibility and moral standards.

Mrs. Cisneros has focused her practice on matters involving business and commercial litigation, including fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and intentional interference with contract and potential economic advantage; insurance defense and indemnity; prosecution of insurance bad faith actions; lender liability; secured transactions; commercial real estate litigation; complex construction defect matters; health care litigation; consumer lending law; landslide litigation; elder abuse; real property law, including secured transactions as well as landlord tenant and ground lease litigation.

Mrs. Cisneros has successfully handled numerous civil actions as well as several appellate cases, both in state and federal court, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  Notably, two Ninth Circuit Appellate cases were simultaneously resolved in favor of Mrs. Cisneros’ without need for oral argument per the order of the Court.  Based on Mrs. Cisneros’ briefing, the California Court of Appeals not only affirmed the favorable judgments on behalf of the client, but also awarded $25,000.00 in sanctions based on her detailed analysis and astute legal arguments presented.

Since opening her own firm, Mrs. Cisneros has dedicated a substantial amount of her time to representing clients on a “low-bono” basis.  Mrs. Cisneros is committed to ensuring equal access to justice by individuals and businesses alike.  To that end, she has developed a sliding scale for her legal fees so that those individuals and business most deserving of quality legal representation are able to afford her services.  This firm strongly believes that the more people stand up for their rights, the stronger our legal system and society will become.  When businesses or individuals take unfair advantage of an unequal bargaining power or financial positions, Mrs. Cisneros will be right there with you to level the playing field.
