Scott D. Levine, APC

At Scott D. Levine, APC, we serve clients by studying their legal needs in detail and then fighting to help them achieve the results they need. The focus of the firm has always been on representing homeowners and community associations in construction defect claims whether for single family homes or high- or mid-rise structures. Scott D. Levine, APC also assists and litigates in franchise matters, business mergers and acquisitions, and employment issues.

Accompanying Scott Levine’s strong background in construction defect litigation is the distinction of co-negotiating Senate Bill 800 (SB800, Civil Code § 895) in 2002. More commonly known as the ‘Right to Repair’ act, SB800 gave a way for homeowners and their homeowner Associations to both define and bring forth claims properly. His experience in both negotiating and drafting SB800 has allowed Scott Levine to guide homeowners and homeowners’ associations through many different claims processes.
