About Us



Ms. Rankin founded Law Offices of Ann Rankin in 1986 to provide legal services to owners of residential and commercial real estate and to property managers,  contractors, design professionals, commercial real estate brokers and real estate investors. The firm currently has three attorneys and one paralegal, as well as a dedicated support staff.



The Locke House


In 1987, Ms. Rankin purchased the Locke House in Oakland, California. She performed extensive renovations on the building and succeeded in having it converted to commercial use and placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Law Offices of Ann Rankin is now housed in this building. Ms. Rankin has rehabilitated several other buildings as well. This "hands on" experience has given her special insight into practical problems facing owners and associations who must deal with problems arising out of improper building design and construction.
