In the partition of a commercial property worth nearly $1 million, attorney Zachary Schorr recently obtained an excellent outcome for one of the owners of the property.
One of Schorr Law’s clients, after being improperly denied access to the property and his fair share of its rents, a 50% owner of the property retained Schorr Law to represent his interests. Schorr Law filed a complaint seeking, among other things, partition of the property. The opposing party went to great lengths to frustrate and deny Schorr Law’s client his rightful 50% of the property and its rental income. Schorr Law, despite being met with resistance at every turn – including discovery disputes and two frivolous bankruptcy petitions – ultimately prevailed. After obtaining terminating sanctions against one co-owner, Schorr Law successfully negotiated a settlement that resulted in Schorr Law’s client obtaining 100% ownership of the property without having to fully compensate its co-owner for anywhere near their 50% interest in the property.
