Wendy Hillger Provides Pro Bono Eviction Defense for Needy Tenants in San Francisco

Author: Wendy Hillger
As part of Ad Astra’s pro bono pledge , Ms. Hillger volunteers for the Housing Negotiation Project. Recently, Ms. Hillger represented a tenant who was having trouble following the house rules. The landlord wanted to evict for these lease violations. The unlawful detainer trial was set for the very next Monday. At the Settlement Conference, Wendy Hillger was able to resolve the landlord’s objections and allow the tenant to stay. The tenant and his Clinical Social Worker were very grateful to avoid imminent eviction.
