The Lawyer Referral and Information Service can help you find a qualified, experienced landlord/tenant attorney in San Francisco or Marin County.

Whether you need legal representation for a Rent Board hearing, help with an eviction notice or a lawyer to advocate on your behalf because of habitability problems, our trained staff will give you the personalized attention you need to find the right lawyer for your legal matter.

Our attorneys are prescreened, insured and have on average more than 20 years of experience practicing law. When you contact us, we will help you determine whether a lawyer's advice is recommended or whether another community resource may be able to help you.

If you need an attorney, we will set up a 30-minute consultation for you. There is no charge for a referral to a lawyer if you have been injured; for most other cases, there is a nominal $35 fee which pays for your consultation with a lawyer.

The Lawyer Referral and Information Service has San Francisco and Marin County lawyers experienced in the following areas of landlord/tenant law:

  • Habitability Issues
  • Wrongful Eviction
  • Landlord Harrassment
  • Master/Subtenant Problems
  • In-Law Apartments

Also contact us if you need help with a real estate matter.
