Bay Area Landlord Attorney - Clients Testimonials
Matlin & Associates takes great pride in providing our clients with the highest level of service and professionalism. Here are testimonials we have received from our Bay Area clients:
I cannot thank you enough for all the legal counsel you provided in representing our group in our eviction of an Oakland tenant who was determined to fight us in Court all the way to the end.
What impressed me the most about your efforts was how extremely well prepared you were for all our Court appearances and your complete understanding of our case and the Oakland eviction process. I think it is very unusual for an attorney to understand and know more about the fact that led up to our case than the client and you certainly did know more! I will miss our daily emails and your always prompt replies to my questions.
I appreciated the fact that you were always looking out for my best interest and felt confident and fortunate to have you representing us!

Property owner December 2011
Thanks again for all your help. We are very happy with the outcome. It's like getting rid of a rat infestation in your house. You were the expert exterminator. The looks on our opponent's faces were priceless. I made it a point to look at the attorneys' facial expressions after your first session with the judge (presumably after you clobbered them on the scope of issues to be litigated), then I made it a point to savor the look on the tenants' faces when they came out of their session with the judge. That was worth the price of admission alone. Spending a few extra hours in the courthouse was not painful at all because for every dollar we spent, I knew they were spending double on those two useless guys. Ha! If any of my landlord friends need help in the future, I'll make sure I send them your way.
Robert, Property owner in San Francisco, July 2011
My initial experience with the San Francisco eviction process was horrible (time consuming, frustrating, stressful and expensive) until I found Shauna Matlin. I was in the 5th month of an eviction case that should have taken less than 6 weeks. The attorney I hired had filed several requests for judgments, reconsiderations, and continuances that had little to no chance of winning and did not make any sense in my situation. It finally dawned on me that something was wrong and I needed to shop for a new attorney in San Francisco.
I spoke to a few attorneys before selecting Shauna Matlin. During our first conversation on the phone she had no reservations reviewing information about my case from the San Francisco Court website to provide me a better assessment of what was happening and why I was not winning any judgments. Shauna explained to me in detail the current issues and what she could and could not do. It was clear by our conversation; she knew San Francisco eviction law, the requirements to get an eviction and had the savvy to work the system.
Shauna took my case that had a number of issues and negotiated a settlement within 3 weeks that resulted in an eviction one week after the settlement. Shauna Matlin is amazing!!!
I can not say enough about Shauna Matlin, I will definitely be using her for all my tenant related issues.
Vanessa property owner in San Francisco, 2011
We couldn't have been more pleased that we chose Shauna Matlin of Matlin & Associates, for legal representation. Shauna made what could have been a very stressful and frustrating process, manageable and transparent through constant communication and the willingness to educate me along the way. Her integrity as a person is evident upon initially meeting her, and shows in the way that she works. She was well prepared, extremely knowledgeable and in seeing her interact with peers, very respected. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has found themselves in need of legal help.
Jodi H., Landord and Broker
I want to take a moment to thank you for your help and assistance in closing our recent court case. I found working with you a refreshing and professional experience. I was grateful for your experience, and especially having you represent us in such a complex case.
As a Real Estate Broker involved in a multitude of Tenant/Landlord issues, I found your attention to detail exemplary, and for once I was glad to have found an Attorney interested in resolving cases rather than prolonging them.
Though I donít plan to be calling you soon, in our business it never takes long before another dispute comes to pass; therefore, you can certainly count on me to call you for representation.
I wish you nothing but continued success! Oh, and please thank your staff for all their assistance.
Matlin & Associates experience in Landlord and Tenant issues provides a great sense of security with our clients:
I was in a very difficult situation with a lot of emotional baggage and family turmoil clouding my judgment about the legal issues. Ms. Matlin was like a bright light of clarity, setting out the options and following through with great skill, energy, and tact. A matter that could easily have dragged on for months and gotten much worse without careful handling was quickly and almost painlessly resolved.
Thank goodness she was on MY side!
Eleanor D., Landlord
I wanted to tell you thank you so much for all your help with my case. I was really anxious and stressed until we found you to work on our deal with the landlord. You waltzed in, took the time to listen to our concerns, and then became the most vigilant activist on our side. You were concerned, followed up regularly, kept us abreast of all the interactions with the other lawyers and then worked out a fantastic deal.
I wanted to tell you that you made what could have been a painful situation into something really tolerable and painless. I would recommend your services to anyone needing counsel. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Shauna from Matlin & Associates represented me in a sticky landlord-tenant situation. I was highly impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. Drawing from her extensive experience in landlord-tenant issues, Shauna was able to present a very strong case and get the issue resolved promptly. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of the case, and especially with the efficient and thorough way Shauna handled everything. I felt comfortable in her hands as it was clear she knew exactly what she was doing and how to get me the best possible outcome. I have complete confidence in Shauna and not only will she be the first call I make should I ever need an attorney again, but I will recommend her services enthusiastically to anyone who needs a skilled and professional attorney.
