We need a tenant lawyer. We are tenants in West Hollywood…

Customer Question
We need a tenant...

We need a tenant lawyer

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is the property located in? And has anyone consulted a local attorney about this?

We are tenants in West Hollywood California

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

Yes, maintenance, but our main complaint is with harassment and bullying on the part of the building manager. We feel as if we are be3ing forced out. A coup;le of other long term rent c controlled tenants have complained of the same thing and have begun to write letters. We have been documenting our case and tried to confront the manager with our case but to no avail.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Does the lawyer write a letter in our behalf?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
