We pride ourselves on providing practical, affordable, and aggressive representation on behalf of residential tenants.
While some firms represent both landlords and tenants – essentially acting as hired guns for whoever has the money to pay them, we believe that the divide between landlords and tenants that exists in the Bay Area is one where you cannot play both sides.
As part of our dedication to tenant’s rights, our office is closely aligned with local non-profit housing rights organizations such as the San Francisco Tenants Union, Housing Rights Committee, and the Eviction Defense Collaborative.
Wrongful Eviction, Constructive Eviction, Buyout and Habitability cases are handled on a contingency fee basis – meaning there is no out-of-pocket cost to you. We get paid when you get paid.
This allows us to represent clients of all economic backgrounds. To find out more about our fees and whether we can help you, contact us today for more information.
