Apartment Complex Crime Victim Lawyer

The high cost of property and large population of California have led to the development of massive apartment complexes throughout the State.  Unfortunately, many apartments are unsafe for tenants and their guests.  Unsafe locks, unlit parking lots, gang activity, and the failure to provide security at large apartment complexes can result in significant crime occurring.  Murders, shootings, and stabbings are all too common in the news.  Apartment break-ins that involve rape or robbery often should have been prevented.
