I am  a 70 yr old disabled senior
who is having A problem with my landlord.  I have lived at 3915 Beethoven St, #2, for 21 years.  He wants me out so he can up the rent.
He is trying everything he can.  Even fabricated trouble.
I have tried every agency for help.  Nothing can be done.
I tried writing to Mike Bonin and my letter was returned.

Is there someone who can help me?

If you are located in Los Angeles and under rent control try the L.A. Rent Stabilization Board downtown in the DWP building. If you are in Culver City, contact the Housing Authority and request mediation services.

I have been in my apartment for over 18yrs - on Glencoe Ave - same deal - and it has been going on since 2012 with the building sold to new owner - LAHD, Legal Aid, Mike Bonin, I have tried them all - the best $100 I ever spent was to consult Ken Carlson - I have paid him for "piece work" ever since and I am still standing - plus he keeps you laughing all the way - he has over 30 years experience - formed a tenants association, then became a lawyer - 100% tenant rights - he is who you want hands down - he does not represent you in court, he is a "ghost" attorney and can refer you to someone to go to court if needed - lots of free info on his website www.caltenantlaw.com - I trust him completely - one word of advice - if you want him to call you - pay him thru the website - he will not call or respond with out payment - it's only $50 after initial consult - $100 and well worth it! He has saved me, saved my money and can get you where you want to go - he was the only attorney didn't tell me not to do what I was going to do (withhold rent) he only said "so you are choosing the riskest route?" and has led me thru clerks mistakes, dirty tricks and makes it fun - hard to believe but true! And, he is notorious - after 30 plus years, he knows all the judges and attorneys etc - my advice is call him to see what your options are..he only practices landlord tenant and knows all the in and outs - don't hesitate, pay for a consult on the website and talk to him!! I can't recommend him enough and wish there were more like him - he is busy that's for sure! good luck to you!
