Wrongful Eviction Law
Sheppard • Uziel Law Firm pioneered the field of wrongful eviction under the Rent Control Ordinance in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. The California State Bar Magazine, The California Lawyer, stated in its 1984 monthly publication that “the best of the new breed of lawyers (practicing in the field of rent control and wrongful eviction liability cases) is Robert Sheppard of San Francisco.”
Since 1979, Sheppard • Uziel Law Firm has obtained several dozen “six figure” verdicts and settlements for its clients against landlords who wrongfully evicted tenants in violation of the San Francisco Rent Control Ordinance. We are proud of our reputation throughout California as the most experienced law firm in the state in litigating and winning wrongful eviction cases.
In the 1990’s and in the new century, Sheppard • Uziel Law Firm has continued prosecuting wrongful eviction claims and lawsuit but has also defended property owners in such cases when the lawyers believed the property owners were wrongfully accused of violation of the Rent Control Ordinance. Our ability to see and advocate both sides of these cases earns us respect from insurance companies and both sides of the landlord-tenant Bar.
Sheppard • Uziel Law Firm is able to apply its vast experience and skills at intimately knowing, and effectively working, both sides of a wrongful eviction case, enabling our firm to obtain impressive results for our clients.
