We are a community Law Office located and practicing in San Diego, CA  providing important and effective legal assistance, by an Attorney, to residential and commercial renters. Our goal is to provide an affordable resource for tenants and occupants to become educated and protected as to their rights under the law. We work to protect and prevent the loss of valuable and important rights through education, sound legal advice and effective appropriate action. 

The Tenants Legal Center offers in-office legal counseling; referrals to outside attorneys can also be made when necessary.
