CIVIL TRESPASS

PREVENTING CIVIL TRESPASS IN FRONT OF

RETAIL STORES

At Dillingham & Murphy, we believe customers should be free to shop without distraction, harassment, and insults from storefront trespassers who demand their attention, their signatures and their money. Retailers should be able to control their storefront sidewalks and provide customers with a serene and pleasant place to shop, free of distraction and unwanted interruptions.

 

The attorneys at Dillingham & Murphy assist California retailers and shopping centers and their customers by preventing and stopping trespassing on store premises.  Contrary to what trespassers are programmed to say, the law strongly favors the retailer’s rights to stop trespassing in front of stores.  We work with trespassers and their managers to leave client stores voluntarily on most occasions based upon well-settled case law and common sense. 

 

However, when trespassers are unwilling to listen to reason, we can quickly and efficiently apply and usually obtain court orders barring them permanently.   After this tried and true method, we have found that future trespassers are deterred from further trespass attempts and efforts. 

 

If you are having trouble with a trespass situation at your business, do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
