I presented my toxic mold/habitability story to Cheryl Bossio two years ago. She was enthusiastic to take on the case and have me hire her to prosecute the landlords of a house I rented in Marin County who violated habitability and safety laws. After no activity for a year and a half, she finally started the process of helping myself and my young son who became very sick while living in this house.
We seemed to develop communication obstacles as she would tell me things for the first time and claim that I already knew about them. False. When Ms. Bossio took the case, she discussed compensation amounts with me. I trusted that these were ballpark until she understood more about the case. However, when, one day before my deposition, she told me that we could hope for one tenth of the amount, I asked why such a departure from the original claim. She sent me an email stating that I caused a communication problem and that she was abandoning my case. She told me that she would cancel upcoming dates with the court, yet I was later told by the Marin County courthouse that I was a "no-show" for my hearings and the case was dismissed.
My little boy and I suffered through Hell and she promised to "be my partner in this," and reassured me, "that I was no longer alone in this fight." She mentioned how she fights for injustice and for victims like myself, but when I asked about the settlement offer to get our lives back on track, she emailed me telling me she was out.
I was not able to find another attorney in the short time I was given to continue my case, and with the "no-shows" I received from the court, my case is no longer viable.
My health will continue to suffer as will my son's. We lost everything, all clothing, housing, furniture and wellbeing. Cheryl make this already devastating situation much much worse. Please protect yourself and find a reliable lawyer who will be forthcoming, honest and stand behind their position to do the right thing and fight for those hurt by environmental injustice at the hands of others. I have been deeply hurt by her and I would never want this to happen to anyone else.
