Common Tenant Issues
I cannot say enough good things about Daniel W Wayne. He has been tremendous help, support and an expert for my case that I am so glad he was the attorney representing me. He was very responsive throughout the process, took time to explain and discuss the situation over the phone and in the office with me several times and ensure I am comfortable with the legal guidance provided. He was very thoughtful and knows his stuff!!!
In many instances, he went above and beyond to get things done and ensure we have success. To all tenants and prospects, I strongly recommend Daniel W Wayne for your case. He is great at what he does!!!
My husband and I are ever so grateful to Daniel and his staff. We had a pretty nuanced and unusual (as per Daniel) buyout situation that stretched out over the span of a year. Daniel always fought for us and encouraged us to have high standards and not settle for less. As a result, we turned down the highest buyout offer we received and consequently were able to stay in our apartment through a change in ownership--a very happy ending indeed. Because we'd signed a contract with Daniel that he'd get paid a percentage of the settlement, and we never settled, we actually never paid him a dime...and yet, he and his staff were generously available and communicative with us on a regular basis over the course of that year. I HIGHLY recommend him for all your tenancy issues.
This is my second time working with and reviewing Daniel and he has been a tremendous help dealing with a difficult landlord for over 3 years. My first experience was to fight an illegal rent increase via the Rent Board and he not only helped me win that case (and the subsequent appeal) but he kept me calm through the ordeal. That was just the beginning. I ended up getting involved in a much more complicated matter and he again helped me through the whole situation and kept me informed and at ease throughout the 2 year ordeal.
He's a great advocate for tenant's rights and is very good at what he does. I absolutely would recommend Daniel to anyone needing legal help in the Bay Area dealing with tenant's issues.
Daniel Wayne helped myself and other tenants deal with an illegal eviction from our apartment in San Francisco. He walked us through the process and made it very clear as to what the different outcomes could potentially be -- we were more than prepared. Throughout most of the time working with Daniel I had since moved overseas, it was not an issue. He was more than accomodating and was hands on throughout the process answering any questions I had.
Daniel was extremely helpful. He was very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. I inquired about a rental issue I was having and he answered all of my questions without asking for payment or asking me to be a client. He was just open to helping me with my situation. I felt way more relaxed about my situation after speaking with him. Having a tense living situation can be quite distressing so having a calm expert to speak with and guide me through the process and outline the next steps was exactly what I needed. I will definitely work with him should my issue escalate. I highly recommend contacting Daniel Wayne to help resolve your tenant issues.
We have built a reputation for zealous, effective and thoughtful representation. But don’t take our word for it, see what some of our clients have to say about us.
