Large-Scale Housing Violations in California
Leading Class Action Litigators — Ahdoot & Wolfson
Here at Ahdoot & Wolfson, PC our attorneys are committed to working with those who feel powerless in the fight for justice. We have spent decades helping clients who have been wronged by defendants with access to greater resources and — sometimes — regulatory advantages. Nowhere is this assistance more necessary than in the housing context, where the incumbent authority leveraged by landlords, property managers, developers, and government agencies put tenants in a vulnerable position.
Handling a Range of Potential Housing Violations
Our attorneys have over twenty years of experience navigating the unique challenges associated with housing disputes, from the factual discovery stage to courtroom litigation. We have capably handled a wide range of housing-related claims, including those that center around:
- Unlawful rent increases
- Permitting violations
- Building code violations
- Eviction-related violations
- Privacy violations
- Personal injury misconduct
Though it’s not uncommon for tenants to feel — intuitively — that they have been legally wronged, those same tenants may not always recognize that there has been a violation upon which they can anchor their legal claims. For example, a landlord who lies about the age of an apartment building may seem harmless, until the tenants in that building are forced to suffer through regular maintenance issues as a result.
Given the nuances of such litigation, we encourage clients to get in touch for guidance on whether they have a claim, and if so, how best to proceed.
We often represent tenants who have been subjected to systemic abuse, whether engaged by property managers, landlords, or developers. Many of our clients have been the victim of Fair Housing Act violations (i.e., discrimination on the basis of a protected characteristic, such as race, national origin, religion, sex, or marital status). Fair Housing Act violations can give rise to a substantial and actionable claim for damages — but these issues rarely occur in a vacuum.
When the interests of tenants align, we are brought in to advocate on their behalf as lead counsel in class action litigation. Class action litigation is particularly valuable for such plaintiffs, as it enables the sort of fact and resource coordination necessary to “win” against a defendant with significant structural advantages.
