My occupation is Eviction Defense Attorney.
My qualifications are:
For 30 years I’ve defended San Francisco families from eviction. Everyday, I see the Court failing tenants trapped by the housing crisis.
As a San Franciscan mother of two public school children, I know the struggles of working people- dragged into Court while they are just trying to take care of their families. I have dedicated my life to fighting for fair legal representation for all San Franciscans.
I’m proud to oversee San Francisco’s Right To Counsel, which provides free attorneys to tenants facing eviction. I supervise nine non-profit agencies to provide these services.
I spent 12 years training hundreds of lawyers to represent tenants at settlement conferences. I oversaw more than 10,000 settlements that would have been very different without free Legal Aid.
The Court needs a different kind of lawyer on the bench. I am not a political appointee, DA prosecutor or big downtown lawyer. I represent real clients with real problems and will bring that experience to the Court.
I am endorsed by:
Supervisor Matt Haney, Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, Supervisor-Elect Dean Preston
Former Supervisors David Campos, John Avalos
Matt Gonzalez, Chief Attorney, SF Public Defender’s Office
Jim Brosnahan, Partner, Morrison & Foerster
Tom Loran, Partner, Pillsbury
Bill Hirsch, Attorney
