San Francisco Bay Area Tenant Lawyers
The Law Offices of Daniel W. Wayne is a boutique tenant’s rights firm located in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. Since our founding in 2012, we have built a reputation as one of the Bay Area’s premier landlord-tenant firms. We pride ourselves on providing practical, affordable and aggressive representation on behalf of residential and commercial tenants. We have successfully resolved hundreds of disputes on behalf of our clients, helping them collect millions of dollars along the way.
Unlike many landlord-tenant law firms, we only represents tenants, never landlords, so you never have to wonder whose side we’re on. We are dedicated to providing our tenant clients with exceptional representation and outstanding hands-on service at competitive rates unmatched by larger firms.
Working with this firm has been a breeze. From speaking with Marie to getting free advice from Tony, I very much felt taken care of. Dealing with a threatening landlord is extremely stressful and it is hard to know whether you'll be okay when everything is all said and done, and with this firm I know if I have to call back I will be 100% taken care of. The advice I was given was priceless and I am forever grateful!
Daniel helped my wife and I negotiate a favorable buyout from a rental where we had rent control. He knew the laws like the back of his hand and advised us of our options accordingly. He was easy to get a hold of both via email or phone if any questions came up.
Daniel was truly looking out for our best interest and we would highly recommend him to any tenants who are dealing with issues with their living situation.
Daniel helped me fight my landlord over the eviction. Daniel guided through the complicated process explaining my options and advising on strategy and tactics. He is very approachable, knowledgeable and straight forward -- all the quality you want in your lawyer. Thanks to his advise I ended up winning the case (actually landlord dropped the case). I would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone having legal disputes with landlord.
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.
