Carlos won our case for us when we were pushed out of our home by our landlord in San Francisco. A rent controlled home that I resided in for over 10 years starting in 2004. He didn't give up on us in a battle of a very big SF real estate company versus an individual family and and in the end we came out on top. He is very professional and a very kind person. I would recommend Carlos to anyone out there in a similar case.

Great attorney!
Carlos worked with me on my wrongful eviction & landlord harassment case. He is extremely nice and helpful, gave me a good sense on what my options are and he had wonderful suggestions along the way. Very professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy, always reachable and available, he advised me about my rights even after hours, on weekends and when he was out of country. I could not have asked for a better experience and I highly recommend Carlos to any tenant in the area having issues with the landlord!
