Tenant Rights

The DC Affordable Law Firm provides low-cost, client-centered legal services to tenants in the District. It helps tenants who are facing eviction or are living in unsafe housing conditions.

Our attorneys represent clients in the following areas:


Eviction Defense

We help tenants stay in their homes and represent clients who are at risk of being or have been evicted.


Informal Advocacy

We understand that legal problems exist long before tenants find themselves in court. Our lawyers work with tenants who have questions about the conditions of their housing, their rights under their lease, and getting a security deposit returned.


Housing Conditions

DCALF assists tenants whose landlords violate the DC housing code.

Words cannot fully express my gratitude and affection for my legal team…They expressed me with their skill, instincts, perception and strength of character in a complicated situation that they fell into late in the process. Their grasp of the legal concepts, of the situation and its gravity for my life was impressive and touching.
