The Brinton Firm

Los Angeles Tenant Attorneys



At the Brinton Firm, we believe that tenants should have safe, habitable, and livable homes. No tenant should ever have to live with mold, rats, roaches, or bedbugs, and no landlord should ever allow tenants to live in substandard conditions. When these issues exist, we are ready to take action on the tenants’ behalf. We don’t represent landlords, and we never charge upfront for our services.

Slum housing and substandard living conditions impact people from all walks of life. In the past few years, we’ve represented all kinds of tenants, ranging from people living in Skid Row or the projects, to those renting mansions in Beverly Hills or lofts downtown. No matter who they are, no one should be forced to live in housing that isn’t safe and habitable for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, bad landlords create and maintain dangerous or unhealthy conditions because they think they can get away with it. That all changes when clients engage our firm. We have recovered millions of dollars from bad landlords for our clients, and we have forced hundreds of landlords to clean up their buildings.*

Our approach to landlord-tenant issues focuses on long term solutions. While other law firms may be focused on collecting monthly revenue from clients, or sending out a form demand letter to try for a quick settlement, our goal is to get you the best outcome every time. Sometimes, that means forcing the landlord to fix existing problems so you can continue to live in the house or apartment you choose. Other times, it means helping you get out of a long-term lease, recover your losses, be compensated for injuries, and move on to a safer, healthier environment. We’ve also helped tenants deal with serious injuries suffered on the landlord’s property, violations of rent control laws, and forcible or wrongful eviction.

At the Brinton Firm, landlord-tenant issues are our sole focus. Our attorneys are highly experienced and laser-focused on issues like habitability, personal injuries arising from dangerous conditions, and retaliation from landlords. We know many of the attorneys representing landlords and have a great track record of reaching successful solutions with them, whether that comes from negotiation and settlement or taking a case to trial.

If you’re living in uninhabitable conditions, if you’ve been harmed on your landlord’s property, if you’ve been wrongfully evicted, or if your landlord has violated your rights, please give us a call today.
