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.
