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.

After the landlords failed to move into the property, our clients filed suit for wrongful eviction.
