Landlord Fails in Attempt to Evict Family of Six

PLC Attorney helped secure win against landlord who refused maintenance and infestation request

Earlier this month, PLC Staff Attorney Ingrid Arriaga won an unlawful eviction case on behalf of a Santa Ana family of six. The owners of their building attempted to evict them, rather than correct a massive cockroach infestation and backlog of routine maintenance requests.


"It's always satisfying when the 'little guy' wins. Landlords, whether owners of a single home or a massive complex, have an obligation to provide safe, up-to-code, habitable units in exchange for tenants' hard-earned rent money," said Arriaga.
