Good Morning!

We’re thrilled to announce another addition to our growing team.  San Francisco native Vinh Le recently joined Tenant Law Group as the firm’s Office Manager.  He oversees all administrative work and also assists with client relations and operations.  Vinh has more than six years of experience in the legal profession, having previously worked as a file clerk, legal assistant, paralegal, and, most recently, office manager.  Vinh is fluent in both Cantonese and English.
 
In this month’s newsletter, we explain how San Francisco’s right to tenant counsel legislation will work in practice.  We also discuss whether a landlord is required to accept the tenancy of a registered service or emotional support animal.

Finally, on behalf of my team, I’d like to thank you for your continued support of Tenant Law Group.  Because we’re always looking for ways to educate and empower California renters, please let us know about any specific topics you’d like us to address in future newsletters.  And, as always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out at any time.
