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!
I can't say enough good things about Daniel Wayne. Our family was cheated out of a rent-controlled apartment in San Francisco by a really unscrupulous real estate agent who represented the owner. In my opinion, she was a total crook. The owner was not well served by her. She made illegal entries, screamed threats to us, broke the law every which way. Made our lives miserable.
The whole conflict could've been solved with a little generosity or common sense on the landlords part. A little politeness. A little respect. Or maybe just a basic understanding of the rent ordinance in the city. My family and I were willing to compromise. But it became clear that this manager was on the warpath to get rid of us.
After dealing with the stress month after month after month, seeing the effect on our kids, we just wanted out of there and far away from this difficult woman and her complicit management company. We vacated. We thought moving would solve it. But it didn't. This crazy greedy landlady and her inept management company just kept coming after us, with jaw dropping greed and lawyers in tow. We really couldn't figure out why.Having to deal with them nine months after we've moved out? That was the final straw. We felt victimized, and turned to Daniel for help.
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.
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.
I cannot recommend Daniel Wayne highly enough. We are expecting our first child this fall and recently discovered unsafe lead dust levels around our apartment through the San Francisco Lead Prevention Program. After the city contacted our landlord to remedy the unsafe living situation, we were threatened repeatedly by our landlord. When contacted, Daniel was quick to respond, provided us with clear guidance on our legal rights, and helped us with the appropriate next steps. He was highly knowledgeable about landlord tenant law and empathetic to our stressful situation. We are now in a much better place - thanks to Daniel's help - and just knowing that we can contact Daniel if any additional problems arise for my family really puts my mind at ease.
Daniel came highly recommended from a friend who had been wrongfully evicted from their apartment. I was having problems with a negligent landlord who just refused to make any kind of repairs to our unit...he would also try to change-up the terms of our lease and do all sorts of other shady stuff all the time. Daniel listened intently as we explained our situation and asked us lots of questions...he walked us through our options and even made us aware of certain rights we had no idea we had! After we came up with a course of action together, he went to work immediately, and ended up negotiating a VERY nice settlement for us, that allowed us to get away from our sketchy landlord! :-)
Daniel is an excellent, and highly knowledgable tenant attorney and I would recommend him to anyone that's having issues with their landlord. He was punctual, professional, and polite every step of the way. He's a nice guy too, and I got the sense that he really cares about the people he helps. I hope he see's this, even though I already told him how much his help has meant to me.
