San Francisco Conversion Law Attorney

San Francisco Conversion Law AttorneyIn the state of California, when another person takes your property or keeps it from you without your consent, you may be able to file a civil claim of “conversion.” A conversion is the intentional interference with the property of another person, depriving the rightful owner of his or her legal right to use or enjoy the property. If you believe you’ve been the target of conversion in northern California and you want justice, speak as soon as possible to the experienced San Francisco conversion law attorneys at the law firm of Geonetta & Frucht. To win a civil claim for conversion in California, you must show that:

1. You have legal ownership, possession, or a right to possession of an item of property.
2. Someone took or prevented your access to that item for a significant period of time.
3. You did not consent to the conversion and you suffered harm as a result of it.


Conversion is not necessarily restricted to taking, actually and physically, someone’s property. Property can be “converted” by its destruction or alteration, by ignoring or incorrectly reporting a legal change in ownership after a sale, or by the failure to deliver funds or items that have been collected for or that belong to the victim. Your San Francisco conversion law attorney will work to help you recover the value of your converted property, which could be either your lost profits or the fair market value. If the property still exists, you may be able to have it returned to you. Although every case is different, damages are almost never awarded for pain or suffering in conversion cases.
