At the Wolff Law Office, we offer over 25 years of experience to clients throughout the Bay Area in California, representing clients in the litigation of a broad range of real estate issues.

George W. Wolff holds a master's degree (M.B.A.) in the business aspects of real estate from the University of California at Berkeley, is a longtime member of the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) Legal Hotline service, and understands the legal issues involved in real estate purchases, ownership and litigation, helping you avoid or resolve disputes as possible.

If you are involved in a residential or commercial real estate contract disagreement and you are unable to resolve your differences, you want an experienced real estate litigation attorney to protect your interests. In litigation, you want a lawyer with courtroom and trial experience - one who has successfully argued before the trial and appellate courts, in arbitration and mediation, and who will know what to anticipate from opposing counsel and how to prepare the best case to protect your rights.
