Emilie has been our lawyer for several years now She always gives excellent advice. She will go to court and litigate if necessary, but pursues all avenues first. I particularly like that because it means we are not paying unnecessary lawyer fees. Emilie's knowledge of the District of Columbia's landlord tenant laws is far reaching and has been valuable in helping us navigate through the DC government, in particularly, DCHA.

I should have hired Emilie sooner. I was timid to take legal action because I didn't think I had any legal ground to stand on (my unit failed its initial inspection), but Emilie was able to start the eviction process and get my tenant to finally vacate.

I hired Emilie last year to help me evict a problem tenant for non-paymet of rent. I was dealing with a sick parent with stage IV cancer at the time, and did NOT want to deal with the tenant issue. Emilie was very upfront with me from the beginning, handled everything, kept me informed along the way, and within the 30-day window of serving the eviction notice, my tenant left. I would absolutely work with her again (she's helping me with screening prospective tenants at this time and drawing up a lease for me), and I have referred her to friends and family. She is such a pleasure to work with. Rest assured that you're in good hands with Emilie!
Marc Borbely, Landlord or tenant Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
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.
