October 2018

Good Morning!
 
As we are just a few weeks from Election Day, we focused this month’s blog on Proposition 10, explaining why all California tenants should vote YES.
 
We are also pleased to announce two recent additions to our team:  Associate E. Susie Mendoza and New Client Intake Coordinator Nathaniel W. Parsons.  Formerly a Law Clerk at Tenant Law Group, Susie helps tenants who have been subjected to illegal landlord behavior recover money damages.  She earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University and a Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law.  As Tenant Law Group’s New Client Intake Coordinator, Nathaniel (Nathan) conducts all prospective new client intakes, ensuring everyone who contacts Tenant Law Group is better off for their efforts.  Please join us in welcoming Susie and Nathan to our team.
 
As always, we thank you for your continued support of Tenant Law Group.  Please remember to vote on November 6!
 
Best wishes,
 

Eric L. Toscano
