The Project

Brendan represents Spanish-speaking renters who have been thrust into the foreclosure crisis by their landlords’ default. Without English skills it is practically impossible to navigate the already infuriatingly complex intersection of foreclosure law and tenants’ rights. By keeping lawful renters in their homes, he will protect the value of bank-owned properties while sparing the surrounding community from the blight and crime accompanies vacant homes.

What’s Next

Brendan currently serves as a staff attorney for the City of Berkeley’s Rent Stabilization Board.
