My professional goal is to use my legal and business backgrounds to encourage efficient development by merging legal and business advice. My broad range of experience includes commercial lease negotiations, real estate valuation, acquisition due diligence, leasing, management, rezoning, and construction of residential investment properties.

James Stevens has built a thriving legal practice on the twin pillars of experience and knowledge. A Principal in the Condominium and Common Interest Community Association practice group, James draws from a base of experience broader than condominium law alone. With a track record that includes successes in a variety of other legal areas as well, he has the ability to advise clients thoughtfully with a thorough understanding of all sides of an issue. Representing condominium and homeowner associations of all sizes, James counsels clients in a wide range of both litigation and transactional matters. He manages all association legal concerns, including easement drafting, bylaws, declarations, developer turnover matters, construction defect litigation, collection of assessments, rules enforcement and interpretation of governing documents. He also defends boards of directors in courtroom proceedings and advises clients regarding the Illinois Condominium Property Act; Forcible Entry and Detainer; Illinois Business Corporation Act; Not for Profit Corporation Act, and Common Interest Community Association Act.
Apart from condominium law, James represents individual and business clients in commercial litigation, business-related disputes, insurance subrogation and recovery, and real estate transactions and litigation. Additionally, he has experience defending creditors in bankruptcy proceedings.
The relational nature of practicing law is a large part of what James enjoys about his work. He appreciates developing an openness that invites clients to reach out whenever his help is needed, even after hours. James delivers intelligent counsel with a friendly, straightforward approach and works hard to give his clients good value for their money. He likes to make sure all parties leave the table with a complete understanding of the information they need to know in order to achieve their goals.
James finds that community associations function much like small companies, with varied needs across a spectrum of legal issues. Writing and speaking frequently about some of these issues, he has addressed questions involving rights, assessment collections, association governance, and other topics. Recently he has spoken at events hosted by the Association of Condominium, Townhouse, and Homeowners Associations (ACTHA) and the Community Associations Institute (CAI).
James is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, where he received the CWRU Leadership Award. His undergraduate alma mater, The University of Chicago, selected him for one of its highest honors, the Howell Murray Alumni Association Award, and inducted him into the Maroon Key Society.

Barak Lurie is the Managing Partner of the Firm. Barak practices primarily in litigation, with an emphasis on business and real estate matters. He also has substantial experience in bankruptcy work, representing trustees and creditors. Barak's clients include a wide variety of businesses and high net work individuals defending or pursuing claims for breach of contract, fraud, and commercial disputes. Barak also has substantial experience in high-profile commercial evictions.
During his legal career, Barak worked for Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, as well as Christensen, Miller (now Glaser, Weil), top-notch large law firms. He also worked at the highly respected firm of Danning, Gill, Diamond & Kollitz. Barak also served as General Counsel to Donald Sterling, real estate mogul and owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. There, Barak took on major legal disputes for Mr. Sterling, and became a principal attorney in the successful appeal of Sterling v. Taylor, reversing the lower court's decision. In addition, in 2000, Barak founded and also became CEO of his own company, RightPro, which developed a unique internet-based marketing tool for professionals. As a result of this experience, Barak became intimately familiar with the needs and motivations of entrepreneurs -- having been one himself. After spending 15 years honing his legal skills in these firms, Barak started his own practice in 2004.
Barak's experience maximizes the odds that a case will be successfully settled. "It's rare that settlement is not the best result for a client," Lurie says. "That way, the client minimizes the risk of a huge loss at trial, and can also have control of the outcome." However, when trial has proven necessary, Barak has prevailed in court time and again, earning verdicts in the millions of dollars. His focus is always on the best and most cost-effective result for the client.

Sheryl Alyce Traum
1901 Harrison St Suite 1100, Oakland
A passion for justice drives me to fight hard for my clients' rights. Over the 25 years I have been practicing law, I have developed skills for handling many types of cases, especially cases involving personal injury (auto, premises liability and products liabilitiy), real estate (contracts, neighbor disputes, nuisances, boundary issues, disabiltiy access, etc.), construction (including design, installation, soils, mold and "indoor air quality" issues) and insurance. I have handled cases in both State and Federal courts throughout California, achieving hundreds of favorable settlements for clients, and when needed, successfully trying cases to verdict.
Justice is based on truth, and truth is found by investigation and discovery. When serving as an advocate, I pride myself with skillfully discovering the facts and evidence that will prove up my clients' position in the case, weaken my opponents' case, and help resolve the case. I carefully research the law applicable to the dispute, and consider the effect of the law on the evidence related to the case. I help my clients understand the range of possible outcomes under the law and facts applicale to their case, preparing them to ultimately make an informed decision about whether to resolve the case at mediation, or take a case to trial or arbitration.
When serving as a mediator, I listen carefully to the statements and arguments made by both sides. I find that parties often start with "extreme" positions based on an assumption that if the matter goes to trial, they will get everything they want. When speaking with litigants, I look for the kernels of information which might help build "common ground" on which to reach a compromise agreement. I also help people realize potential weaknesses in their position, and possible unanticipated or unfavorable results which might occur if the matter was tried to a jury or judge. I find that litigants often have not fully considered the "downside" which could occur if a judge or jury does not fully agree with their point of view. By giving litigants a "neutral evalution" and pointing out possible weak points in their case, I help litigants understand how a mediated resolution which they have the opportunity to craft with the other side is usually preferable to a result which will be decided by a judge or jury over whom they have no control.
As an arbitrator, I conscientiously maintain a respectful, neutral demeanor so that parties feel comfortable that I am giving due consideration to all the arguments and evidence submitted by all sides before making a decision. I work hard to assure that the atmosphere of the arbitration remains professional, discouraging bickering between parties and counsel which can lead to unnecessary stress and agitation. Once the evidence is in, I promptly render an award based on my findings after considering all the evidence and arguments.
I am as passionate about life as I am about getting great results for my clients.
In the time when I am not working hard for my clients, I enjoy being active, including biking, tennis, kayaking, hiking with my dogs and almost any outdoor activity. I also enjoy art, spending many quiet hours drawing, painting and writing, mostly for the enjoyment of my family and friends.
I find that taking this quiet time gives me time to reflect even more about the needs of my clients and I often incorporate "inspirations" from my personal time into the strategies I use in my clients' cases.

Personal PhilosophyLife's too short to waste ...I encourage clients to focus on what matters most.I take your case-situation very seriously.....and, I also know that clients sometimes get caught up in an emotional spiral of revenge and defensiveness and forget the bottom line.....resolving the matter so they can move on with what matters most in their lives.As a lawyer, counselor, provider, family man, grandpa and outdoor adventurist, I've witnessed much pain and suffering caused by lack of focus and failure to remember the personal core values that drive our lives on this earth.....especially during trying times.I work hard and play hard. I live my core values everyday (integrity, creativity, freedom, humor and compassion) and as a result have developed compassion for and understanding of my clients and the range of other personalities involved in complex and simple legal situations.I look for win-win resolutions. This means doing the best I can to match available resources with innovative solutions. Most of my cases-situations are resolved out of court, saving all parties time, emotional turmoil and money. Business transactions are dealt with timely and cost effectively, focusing on getting the best deal possible for my clients.I pride myself on being efficient and effective, keeping up-to-date on technologies that will help me run my practice and building positive relationships with those I do business with (community, opposing counsel, judges, etc.). I answer my own phones, I get back to you, I care about your legal matter.
