​(530) 605-3077 ext. 1002

Practice Areas:

          ▪ Commercial Real Estate
          ▪ Landlord/Tenant
          ▪ Business Formation, Operation and Management

Professional Experience:

Mr. Endres has practiced commercial real estate for over twenty-five years. His practice includes purchase and sale contract drafting and  negotiation, due diligence, management, 1031 exchanges, retail, office  and warehouse leasing, landlord/tenant dispute resolution, property  management representation, development and construction advising, loan  acquisition and negotiation (including complex conduit/securitized/CMBS loans and other non-conventional loan structures), loan issue  resolution (including distressed loan workouts), business entity  structuring, formation and dissolution, and all other aspects of single  and multi-tenant commercial property representation.

Mr. Endres  has successfully negotiated in excess of $800 million in commercial real  property purchases and sales and negotiated hundreds of commercial  leases in the process of representing clients owning in excess of one  billion of commercial properties. He regularly handles property  purchases and sales ranging in value from forty-thousand residential rentals to twenty-million dollar shopping centers, and negotiates leases  for small start-up companies leasing a few hundred feet of shop space  to WalMart leases occupying tens of thousands of square feet.

Mr. Endres’ practice also encompasses general business representation  including business entity formation (limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, etc. (including  professional entities for doctors, lawyers, architects, etc.)), business  operation and planning, purchases and sales of businesses, general  employment contracts, general business transactional contracts, business  dissolutions and partnership partition actions. He has represented  businesses ranging in size from start-up, home-based sole-proprietors to  large nationwide companies as general counsel on issues concerning all  aspects of business operation.

Mr. Endres not only represents clients in real estate and business matters, but he is also a real  estate owner and small business owner. In the last ten years, he has  been an owner in and counsel for over four hundred thousand square feet of commercial property and has been an owner in and counsel for multiple businesses. This background adds a very practical understanding of the issues faced by business and real estate owners and operators.

For ten years of his early practice, Mr. Endres had an active caseload of federal and state litigation matters of various types. This  litigation experience has lead to a deep belief that litigation should  be viewed as a last resort. Litigation is expensive, slow, frustrating,  stressful and uncertain.  For this reason, Mr. Endres is committed to  making his best efforts to keep his clients out of litigation, either by  anticipating issues that will lead to disputes and resolving them  before a dispute arises, or if a dispute has already arisen, finding a creative resolution that provides an intelligent,  cost-effective, business-oriented solution.

Elizabeth Elizondo - Partner


​(530) 605-3077 ext. 1003

Practice Areas:

  • Estate Planning in including consulting about your specific needs and drafting wills, trusts, advanced health care directive, power of attorney. 
  • Trust administration, which includes aiding individuals with the trust in the difficult time after the death of their loved one.
  • General business representation including lease review, entity selection, entity formation, drafting contracts  for  everyday business use, business dissolution,  and business sale agreements.
  • Landlord/tenant disputes.
  • Business counseling in preparing for and avoiding ADA lawsuits through the use of CASP inspections.
  •  Family law: dissolution and nullification of marriage, child custody and support, and child support arrears.
  • Nonprofit organization counseling on formation, fiduciary duties, and management. 

In all areas, it is Ms. Elizondo’s goal to use the courts as little as possible as she strongly believes the best outcomes result from individuals making the choice to come to an agreement that is on their own terms. In those instances, when the parties are unable to come to resolution and unfortunately, litigation is necessary, Ms. Elizondo believes in  being a zealous advocate for the client’s rights.

Ms. Elizondo  has a strong background in small business administration, specifically  in restaurant and construction areas. This background in the everyday administration has given her a practical understanding of the ways in which law could effectively prevent or resolve issues that business  owners experience on a day to day basis. Examples of the type of work: drafting vendor contracts that anticipate areas where issues may arise  and negotiating lease provisions that will be more favorable in the  operation of the specific business.

When not practicing law, you  will find her exploring Redding and enjoying Shasta County. Visiting the great outdoor lakes,  waterfalls, and hiking trails as well as all the locally-owned  restaurants, and vintage shops. She welcomes any recommendations on  places to explore.
