Recovered for a single long-term tenant in San Francisco. Our client was forced to move out of his apartment as a result of extreme landlord harassment.


Recovered on behalf of a couple living in a rent-controlled home in the outer Sunset neighborhood. Our clients were forced to vacate after the landlord served them with an Owner Move-In Eviction Notice. After the landlords failed to move into the property, our clients filed suit for wrongful eviction.

Recovered on behalf of a tenant living in an illegal “in-law” unit. In this case a new owner purchased the building and then demolished our client’s unit without permits while she was displaced for seismic retrofitting.
