Simply the Best!!!!!
I don't know what the hell the other review on here is talking about because eviction defense network never takes any money until prior doing an intake while waiting for our intake Elena herself conducted a workshop in the waiting area. She made my mother and myself feel completely welcome addressed all our concerns we proceeded with retaining edn to represent us and as it turns out That was exactly what the doctor ordered not only did we win our eviction but we were able to file a lawsuit against our landlord eviction defense network definitely lives up to its reputation of 98% success in eviction defense! Also the fact that we are and Italian El Salvadorian family and everyone there spoke perfect English in perfect Spanish further reinforcing the fact that eviction defense network is definitely the place for people like ourselves that need someone in their corner thank you so much to Elena Popp YOU ARE THE BEST, keep up the hard work EDN people like ourselves really depend on you! And as a community in Los Angeles we must Unite in order to stop all these greedy land developers landlords and property owners, they must learn that defrauding the public an illegal harassment and illegal eviction should be illegal! Thank you eviction defense that work for you guys are ahead of your time with all the work that you do for the Latin Community we really greatly appreciate you! By the way my consultation was only $100

A non-profit? that's a joke
i went to Eviction Defense for help and gave my information to an attorney there. When the court date came, they sent someone who knew nothing about my case. i settled the matter with my landlord myself and we tried to file for dismissal but Elena insisted "they" had to do it. i had to fight to get them to release me, when all was settled between myself and landlord. be careful.....they want your money...non profit what a joke
