Law Firm 500, Closing Attorney Needed & New Team Members

Good Afternoon,

We are thrilled to share the news that at a virtual awards ceremony this past Saturday, December 5, Law Firm 500 recognized Tenant Law Group as the 12th fastest growing law firm in the United States with a growth rate of 448.7%. In 2019 (its first year of eligibility for the award), Tenant Law Group was recognized as the 22nd fastest growing law firm in the United States with a growth rate of 193%.

Not only is rapid growth one of Tenant Law Group’s core values, it’s part of our mission statement. We are committed to growing quickly to serve the approximately eighteen million renters in California. We have ambitious growth plans for 2021 (currently, our goal is 300% growth in 2021 over 2020) to accommodate the ever-increasing demand for tenant rights legal services in California, particularly during this period of economic hardship related to the pandemic.

I’d like to thank everyone who has been instrumental in allowing us to reach this milestone: our hardworking and dedicated team, business partners, and, most importantly, our clients, who chose to entrust their legal matters to our firm.

Speaking of growth, we are still hiring! Are you an attorney interested in joining our growing virtual team? Tenant Law Group is hiring a closing attorney to join us full-time to oversee the prosecution, negotiation, and settlement of a portfolio of tenant rights matters, ensuring they are prosecuted promptly and aggressively. Newly licensed attorneys with a background in sales and/or negotiations are welcome and encouraged to apply. The position is 100% virtual and attorneys need not be based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The job description and application instructions are available on this page of our website.

Finally, please join me in welcoming two new professionals to our Intake Team. Annie Romero joined Tenant Law Group on November 10. As Client Intake Specialist, she is responsible for conducting all new client intakes. Before joining Tenant Law Group, she worked as an Operations Manager for an outdoor advertising company in San Antonio, Texas. Joryem Chirinos joined the firm on November 24. As Client Intake Coordinator, she is the first point of contact for prospective new clients, greeting them, explaining to them the firm’s intake process, and coordinating an intake—the first step in the process of legal representation. Before joining Tenant Law Group, Joryem worked for United Airlines as a travel associate and for Outplex as a customer service agent. Welcome, Annie and Joryem!

Thank you for your continued support of Tenant Law Group. As always, we offer virtual attorney consultations for tenants throughout California and have discounted all attorney consultations by 20% through December 31, 2020.
