The Firm

Gupta Evans and Associates is a Southern California based litigation firm focused on corporate and real estate disputes, both in state and bankruptcy court. The Firm is built on the pillars of education and execution. Our goal is to first educate our clients about options in order to allow them to make an informed decision on how to proceed. Once the client decides to move forward, the Firm prides itself on its ability to execute at the highest standards while keeping the client informed every step of the way.

Ajay Gupta founded Gupta Evans and Associates, then Gupta Legal Center, over 10 years ago in 2008. Mr. Gupta graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law in 2005 and began his career with a boutique real estate firm in La Jolla, California focused on real estate title disputes.

Chris S. Evans is also a graduate of USD Law. Mr. Evans spent his first two years with a boutique real estate litigation firm in Los Angeles, California prior to joining the practice in 2015. Mr. Gupta and Mr. Evans developed an excellent working relationship and together quickly began to grow the Firm. In 2018, Mr. Evans became an equity partner of the Firm and Gupta Legal Center became Gupta Evans and Associates.

At its inception in 2008, the Firm focused largely on secured debtor and creditor matters in bankruptcy court. Since then, the Firm has grown and developed its practice around the areas of corporate and real estate litigation. Some areas where our office excels include:

  • Commercial collections efforts, including the tracing of funds and/or fraudulent transfers;
  • Commercial and residential evictions (unlawful detainer) and lease disputes with respect to both landlords and tenants;
  • Partition Actions and boundary/title disputes;
  • Bankruptcy matters including Chapter 11 actions, complex trust and bond related matters, preference and fraudulent transfer adversaries, jurisdictional matters, as well as non-dischargeability issues;
  • Partnership and corporate disputes, including breach of fiduciary duty claims and dissolution actions;
  • General real estate and business disputes, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, non-disclosure conversion and negligence actions;
  • Hard money disputes between borrowers and lenders, including defense and prosecution of guaranty enforcement actions;
  • Mishandled loan modification cases;
  • Chapter 7, 13, and 11 bankruptcies, both creditor and debtor side.

    -Laith H., Carlsbad, CA

    I contacted the Gupta legal center for advice regarding a real estate litigation case. Ajay gave me sound and knowledgeable advice. I would feel comfortable choosing him and his services, agree with the previous reviews that recommend his agency.
    -John K., Milford City, CT

    A few years ago, I was in a jam. I called Gupta Legal Center’s number. Ajay gave me a lot of time and advice. He advised me not to go the legal route though he would have made money that way. I am not sure I agreed with the answer, but this firm is a rarity–a honest lawyer not just looking at wallet size.
    -Jadhu K.

  • Ajay returned my call promptly after I left a detailed message with his assistant. We were able to quickly go through my options and he advised me on exactly what to do in regards to filing a TRO or asking the bank for a probate.

    -Julia S., 

    Glad I came to Ajay for a consultation. At no point he was trying to sell his service. In fact, he suggested that I should pursue other options first. I HIGHLY recommend that you should seek Ajay if you need legal service. You won’t be disappointed.

    -Khanh L.

    Ajay is an intelligent attorney, requests reasonable retainers, and is good about being available to talk even after the initial consultations. I used his firm for a complex Ch. 7 Bankruptcy and I am glad I came across his name when shortlisting attorneys.

  • Ajay cares about the well being of ALL his clients, and continues to go the extra mile for them long after the official business is done…that goes a long way with me.
