The Ponist Law Group, P.C. was founded with the goal of providing superior representation of clients in all aspects of real estate, construction and business litigation matters. The firm’s legal knowledge and trial expertise allows the firm to achieve better settlements before trial and better results at trial when settlement is not possible.

Real Estate, Construction and Business Litigation Expertise

We have substantial experience in matters involving a broad range of real estate and business disputes. As experts in real estate, construction and business disputes and having successfully handled hundreds of such matters, we frequently present and provide legal education to other members of the bar on these matters.

Significant Trial and Litigation Experience

As a former prosecutor and as experienced trial attorneys, we bring significant litigation and trial experience to our representation of clients to achieve better results. We have tried numerous cases to verdict and judgment with a history of trial success and winning results. We have recovered over $115 million in real estate, construction defect and business damages for clients while also successfully defending clients against lawsuits seeking millions in damages.


In recognition of our accomplishments, we have been conferred the prestigious “Super Lawyer” award, a distinction bestowed upon less than 5% of attorneys, for the past eight years (2011-present).  Mr. Ponist is also a fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, a trial lawyer honorary society whose membership is limited to less than one-half of 1% percent of North American lawyers, judges and scholars.  He has also been recognized as one of the Best of the Bar by the San Diego Business Journal.

Sound Business Solutions

In addition to our litigation successes, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide sound business solutions to complex litigation matters.  As former in-house counsel for one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate brokerage companies, Mr. Ponist and our firm appreciate the importance of blending litigation strategy with business objectives to achieve the best results for clients, recognizing that there is often more at stake than just the lawsuit.

Exceptional Client Service

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional client service. You deserve not only successful results, but also responsiveness from your legal counsel throughout the course of the representation. The Ponist Law Group, P.C. prides itself on providing both. We look forward to the opportunity to assist you.
