LACLJ helps 10 recover damages from unsafe conditions

Years after filing a lawsuit against their landlord, tenants (pictured here) from a rundown property in Lincoln Heights finally settled the case this January. The families had been living in slum conditions that included open ditches, leaking roofs and unsafe plumbing and electrical service.

Lead counsel Manuel Duran (pictured on the far right) of Duran & Cedillo and LACLJ Housing Staff, led by Senior Housing Advocate Maria Aguila, worked to fight for the tenants. Thanks to a dedicated team of advocates, the tenant families finally received the justice they deserved!
