Incredibly helpful and personable!
I reached out to Roger about some recent issues I've had with my landlord. He immediately responded and set up a time to talk. He gave really helpful advice and was incredibly knowledgeable. The best part was how kind and calm he was during the entire conversation. I felt as if I was talking to a caring friend. He really does care about what's in your best interest. Highly recommend!

Thank you Miriam for your gracious remarks. My business career taught me that kindness was the most powerful tool a negotiator can wield. It leads to understanding and creates value for everyone. These things are essential to creating a thriving tenant landlord relationship. Best regards!

Review for Roger Moss
I first connected with Roger on Avvo. He replied to a question I had posted about a very tricky housing situation I am stuck in. My experience with him has been phenomenal. He is always quick to reply to my questions and provide any kind of clarification I needed. He is excellent with conflict resolution, as well as a good judge of character. Something I really appreciated was the empathy he showed me. He understood what I was going through not just as an attorney but as another human being and guided me when I needed it the most. I think it is this quality that sets Roger apart from most attorneys and people, his unwavering belief in you and his sincere willingness to help you to the best of his abilities.

Having problems with my Property Manager
My Property Manager was not following through with my addendum concerning a camper on my property. Mr. Ross was kind enough to let me know what I should do. Nice to know you can go on this free site to ask a quick question as a landlord.

Highly recommend Roger Moss for landlord-tenant disputes
Mr. Moss was instrumental in helping to resolve a highly complex eviction situation. Within a week of him stepping in to help, a peaceful agreement to move out was reached with the tenant, avoiding a potentially long and expensive court process. Thank you so much, Mr. Moss, for your outstanding help and advice!
Response from Roger Moss June 15, 2020
Thank you Juan for your kind words. They are greatly appreciated. And I must acknowledge your patience and courage working through a highly-charged situation aggravated by fear of the Covid-19 pandemic, which directly impacted the mediated process. Be well!

Great advice
Hello, I was in a rental dispute with a management company. I contacted Mr Moss and he gave me pretty specific advice on what to do. I followed that advice to the letter. The outcome was exactly what Mr Moss said could happen best case scenario. He also offered what to do in the worse case scenario, but that did not happen thankfully. I am very thankful for Mr Moss!

Expert, professional, personable
I initially consulted with Roger by phone before hiring him to resolve a landlord-tenant issue. His expertise and personable demeanor made me feel at ease during the entire process. He was able to resolve my matter within two weeks and the outcome was more pleasant than I expected. Thank you Roger.

Sound advice
I asked a landlord-tenant question here on AVVO and he gave a thorough answer - even referred me to the Handbook so I could do my due diligence. It's too bad he's not in Sacramento, he seems like an attorney who would be great to have on my side.
Response from Roger Moss April 2, 2018
Barb, thanks for the kind comments. FYI, my practice is almost exclusively online, conducted via video conferencing, telephone, and correspondence. I provide mediation, negotiation consulting, and communication coaching throughout the states of California and Washington, and manage an innovative program in San Francisco that mediates to prevent evictions that lead to homelessness.

Had a short but helpful conversation on the phone
My landlords went through my apartment before I moved out and stole some of my stuff assuming I had abandoned the unit. I called Roger for some advice on how I should move forward and on the position I was in. I’ve managed to work out the issue on my own but I appreciated the brief time he took to talk to me.

So professional and so helpful!
I contacted Roger regarding issues with a new owner of the property I rent. The new owner was violating a number of WA State Tenant Laws and I needed advice for how to deal with that and protect my rights. Roger took the time to understand my situation, and provided excellent advice. Not only did he talk to me for nearly an hour, he put me at ease and made me feel confident in taking action. He has also been reachable for follow up questions which I greatly appreciate. I would highly recommend Roger!
