Another attorney referred me to Mr.Briggs,and he was wonderful. He knew what he was doing. And stayed on top of things for us. I would recommend him any day of the week. Thank you so much!!

Our eviction case pushed Curt & his co-counsel team to their limits in every way, & they pulled through w/ flying colors. Our case, while practically over in our favor, instead of being a normally 1 month long UD, still lingers on after ~8 months not because of Curt, but because our opponent was ruled to be one of the most mean/obstructive Landlord attorneys out there, w/ over 20 years experience, & have an endless dirty playbook they launch against tenants which puts them at the top of the list of infamous, notorious Landlord attorneys- they are also a high volume Landlord side firm w/ HUGE resources & they do everything possible to bury & overwhelm their opponent, to run up costs & force missed response deadlines. For the first 4 mo, just to keep up w/ them, Curt had to dedicate his complete resources to our case (virtually shutting down his legal practice). Curt was able to get each of their mean legal tactic stricken down, & then, icing on the cake, got the judge to slap them w/ one of the largest (if not the largest) sanctions (penalties, like contempt of court) ever for their mean/obstructive behavior. Judges almost never give much sanctions, so Curt (& team) winning us that monster one was no small feat.
I was present at many of his most important court motion hearings in our case, and closely read through the endless court hearing and deposition transcripts, digesting his responses, counter arguments, & lines of questioning. I could go on endlessly about all the twists & turns that he had to overcome, but suffice it to say that given our case has pushed all the boundaries of UD law/process, he has demonstrated himself to me to be an extremely competent, legally knowledgeable, adept, tenacious, & caring lawyer (& person). He has great instincts w/ the SF civil Judges, depositions, and real-time litigation strategy. W/ Judges, he’s actually very respectful, takes allot of abuse, rides the line to stay on their good side and builds a solid history and rapport. In depos, he’s got amazing instincts.
His instincts to discover criminal/foul play in physical evidence were also very impressive. I was also amazed at how he can dig into and own all the endless facts of our extremely complex case. Most all other attorneys would just gloss it over, and ignore/miss key (even hidden) evidence.
He also great on client communications stuff, and is very open to client input & guidance when helpful, yet is always polite and frank when it is not. He is extremely respectful, and has almost zero ego/elitist trips of most lawyers. No games or angles… he’s a strait shooter!
He knows his court procedure pretty well, and is a tenacious fighter. When it comes to fighting the most notorious landlord firms, he only takes clients that are willing (and able) to go all the way to jury trial, and we wanted a firm that had effectively scrapped w/ them before, and could handle jury trial. I had interviewed literally dozens of top notch attorneys (most billing $300 - $450/hr, and many were obvious rip offs, looking to take as much $ as possible, and don’t care about results), and even the most experienced in SF UD cases (e.g., 15-20+ yrs exp) had only gone to jury trial once, and the rest had no jury trial experience, just doing some bench trials, which is no good for the bogus nuisance UD case maliciously slapped on us. He has close co-counsel associates who fill in gaps where his is practice not as strong. In our case, he teamed up w/ Marc Branco to shore up UD law practice. So, that combined w/ his jury trial experience (and their hunger to kick their butt), is what sold me on their ‘dynamic duo’ to go up against them. His criminal law experience was very pertinent to our very (fact driven) nuisance UD case, and he’s adept at picking apart (hostile) witnesses an triangulating to converge on favorable facts to the case.
So, in sum, I can vouch that Curt (& team) are very competent re UD legal practice, highly ethical, they get results.

Curtis is a consummate professional. I have called upon his services on matters ranging from general legal advice to contract review to landlord / tenant disputes. He has always remained extremely knowledgeable, thorough yet efficient and respectful when conducting business with myself and others. As is such, I feel no need to rely on assistance from any other attorney in the future. Should the need arise, I will always seek Curtis as my #1 choice for representation with complete confidence. I strongly recommend you do as well.

I'VE BEEN WITH CURTIS 9MOS. AND I MOST SAY THAT I'M VERY IMPRESS WITH HIM HIS WORK AND HIS OVERALL LEGAL WORK AND ADVICE BUT MOST OF ALL HIS LOYALITY AND STEADFASTNESS. HIS AGGRESSIVENESS AND POWERFUL APPROACH AT FIGHTING WAS A WONDERFUL THING TO SEE. THIS YOUNG ATTORNEY IS TRULY A BLESSING TO THE LEGAL SYSTEM. NOT ONLY IS HE A GREAT ATTORNEY BUT ALSO HUMBLE AND TOTALLY RESPECTFUL AS A PERSON. BUT I MUST SAY THAT HE IS A BEAST IN THE COURT. I'M VERY GRATEFUL TO HAVE MET CURTIS NOT ONLY DID I GET A GREAT LAWYER IN HIM BUT ALSO A GREAT FRIEND. CURTIS IS TRULY THE LAWYER OF THE FUTURE.

In June I recieved an unlawful detainer complaint. I WAS DESPARATE TO FIND LEGAL HELP. I spoke
with different attorneys but none of them seemed to be helpful and they seemed to be lost.finally I
found a great yound attorney,name Curtis Briggs, he is honest and most important he is smart.His
hourly rate was reasonable compared to many attorneys who just take your money and do not actually
do anything. I called Curtis and made an appointment. I made the right choice an hired him as councel . He explained all my options. very smart,and great sense of humor. He took the time to
explain in detail. He started preparing for an aggressive trial defense and when we went to trial He
forced my landlord to drop the case. He would not even negotiate because I was willing to fight to the end over principle. We did win and I thank God I foung Mr.briggs

I had never been through the legal system before, so when I contacted Curtis Briggs I didn't even know what questions to be asking. He knew the right steps to take after I explained my situation and he led me in the right direction to ensure the least amount of legal consequences. Curtis explained everything in a manner I could fully understand. He not only made my legal situation understandable, but told me what I needed to provide myself to help my case move along in a timely manner. To this day, I wouldnt be where I am if it were not for Mr. Briggs and his legal advice. Now everything has been promptly put behind me in my past so I can comfortably move forward to the future.

I enlisted Curtis for a criminal matter and couldn't have been more impressed with the experience. He kept me informed and helped me prepare. Despite my own expectations that the matter was going to be less severe, Curt was thankfully prepared for the worst-case scenario with adept legal arguments and evidence that I hadn't even thought of as relevant. Because of him, what was a stressful and annoying burden on my shoulders became immediately more manageable and eventually ended with a favorable result. I would not hesitate to refer Curt to anyone who needed representation.

Curtis Briggs, has been the most understanding, patient, and professional attorney I have ever worked with. I have recommended him to family and friends alike. He represented my father and helped him clear up his criminal record. He had previous felonies dropped to misdemeanors and helped friends with current legal troubles. I know that whatever may happen in the future Curtis Briggs will be the first person I contact when and if I need legal advice. Furthermore, Mr Briggs has a great network of attorneys at his disposal and has no problem finding you sound legal advice if in fact he cannot personally represent you. For example my cousin was in need of a family law attorney and Curtis went above and beyond to find a trustworthy attorney to handle her case. I cannot begin to express how appreciative I am of his hard work and dedication to every detail in the case he has helped my family and friends in.
