    Dorene Haney Litigation Attorney
    Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter

  • Marc A Borbely

    Ms. Fairbanks represented one of the largest apartment buildings in the District in a complicated eviction for breach of lease. Ms. Fairbanks firmly and zealously advocated for her client in court, and worked hard to craft a settlement that avoided a very large legal bill for both sides. Ms. Fairbanks is an experienced landlord-tenant attorney; before launching her own firm, she worked for about four years at one of the District's most active landlord-tenant firms.
