SAN FRANCISCO TENANT LAWYERS
Welcome to the online law office of Crow & Rose. Dave Crow is a uniquely prepared, experienced tenant rights lawyer. I am an advocate for our clients on the full range of legal issues facing tenants, consumers and others in San Francisco, California.
We are best known for an aggressive tenant rights law practice — which focuses solely on the representation of tenants — the Crow & Rose law firm has years of experience defending unlawful detainer (eviction) actions. We will represent you when you sue your landlord for breach of the warranty of habitability, harassment and owner-move-in (OMI) wrongful eviction. We help tenants negotiate tenant buyouts with their landlords, but only after a complete analysis of applicable landlord tenant law and discussion of a tenant’s options.
If you are a tenant and have a problem with your landlord, need eviction help, want to sue, or just want to stand up for your tenants rights call us.
Crow & Rose represents commercial tenants.
We will not represent a landlord seeking to evict a tenant, nor will we represent a master tenant evicting roommates.
We are dedicated to providing creative and cost-effective representation to help our clients successfully resolve litigation and other legal disputes. Crow & Rose offers experience in a broad range of civil litigation matters, including business litigation, real estate litigation, and alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration. Crow & Rose also offers comprehensive legal services including creative problem solving, counseling, advocacy, and successful appellate work. If you need to appeal a decision, call us for a free consultation. Offices conveniently located in downtown San Francisco at the Montgomery MUNI/BART station. Contact Dave Crow at (415) 552-9060 or complete the form on our Contact the Tenant Lawyers page. We accept credit cards—American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

Rent control is a tangled web of seemingly boring rules, but it does have real effects. To supporters of the protections, the aim is about keeping things affordable and fair.
“Blueprint for Renters Bill of Rights” applauded by corporate landlords for doing little to rein in unfair rent increases and evictions, a new report by government watchdog Accountable.US.
The lack of housing affordability is the direct result of commodification – the use of residential real estate as an asset for the purposes of financial speculation and capital accumulation.
