County of Los Angeles et al vs Mary Lou Jacobs et al

Venue: Los Angeles County
Case Number: BC710605
Case Description: Our client Ms. Jacobs, a co-owner of a Los Angeles home, had her house seized by Los Angeles County for residential code violations. Upon seizure, the County appointed a third-party individual called a “receiver” to retain total control over the home and bring the property up to code compliance. The receiver, in conjunction with the County, billed our client significantly more than the value of the property and were seeking six figures worth of fees over the value of the property. Upon contesting the Receiver and the County’s billing practices as well as legal fees, we were able to settle the case with $43,470 returned to the client in fees paid and six figures worth of unpaid fees dropped.
Practice: Consumer Rights
Result: Settled for $43,470
