I specialize in representing tenants who are threatened with or who have been evicted from their homes or businesses. I have represented tenants since 1991, have been on the faculty of landlord-tenant seminars, and am a frequent guest on the "Your Legal Rights" radio show on KALW, 91.7 FM, in San Francisco, regarding the rights of tenants. I can help you make informed decisions about an attempted eviction and advise you as to what options are available.

Many people wonder if they need a lawyer when they face eviction. The law regarding eviction in San Francisco and other California communities is very complicated and sometimes confusing. Whatever your situation, we can help. Please call me for a free initial telephone consultation.
