Money and Dirt: A blog on legal issues impacting California real estate investment, development, and secured lending


Kevin Brodehl

Kevin Brodehl is a litigation attorney and partner at Wendel Rosen Black & Dean LLP in Oakland, California.

Kevin’s practice emphasizes disputes involving real estate, secured lending, and business.  He works with real estate owners, developers, investors, and investment entities (REITs, corporations, partnerships, LLCs) to help solve all types of real estate and business problems.  He also works with a mixture of private lenders, borrowers, and guarantors to resolve disputes involving real-estate secured loans and foreclosure (non-residential).

When problems cannot be resolved out of court, Kevin has a distinguished track record of success in arbitration, trial, and appeal proceedings across California.  Kevin’s deep courtroom experience started early — he won his first trial a day after he was sworn in as an attorney, won his first appeal three years later, and has served as lead counsel in an array of high-stakes cases ever since.  Kevin is also frequently retained as appellate counsel to get unfavorable lower court rulings reversed at the Court of Appeal.

Kevin has been selected for inclusion in Northern California Super Lawyers magazine every year from 2012 through 2016 (Thomson Reuters rating service), which is awarded to only 5% of the Northern California Bar.

Kevin is an Adjunct Professor at U.C. Berkeley School of Law, co-teaching the Real Estate Transactions and Litigation class to advanced Law and MBA students.  He is also an Annual Update Author for CEB’s leading treatise “California Mortgages, Deeds of Trust, and Foreclosure Litigation,” and a frequent seminar speaker on real estate, secured lending, and business issues.
