STEPHEN J. WEAVER
Stephen is the principal attorney at Weaver Land Law, a full service real estate law firm. His practice focuses on land use and zoning law, real estate transactions, development and construction law, and commercial tenancy issues. He also handles related litigation.
Stephen began his practice with the East Coast law firm of McEllroy Deutsch Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP. There, he primarily practiced surety/construction law and land use law, representing large commercial surety and insurance companies. Since coming to California, he has successfully chaired numerous trials, not only resulting in large judgment awards, but also obtaining six figure attorneys' fee awards for his clients.
Stephen brings years of experience in drafting and reviewing real estate deals as well as obtaining rights for companies seeking to develop, manage, or sell their land. His litigation experience greatly enhances his abilities in advising clients on property transactions. By virtue of having litigated hundreds of cases throughout the country, Stephen knows the issues in agreements that frequently become points of contention. These issues, when given insufficient attention at the outset, often lead to otherwise avoidable lawsuits. He can best prepare his transactional clients to avoid costly, future litigation.
He is also a licensed California real estate broker.
