Upholding Tenant Rights in the Greater Portland Area.
Sharp Law, PC is familiar with Oregon state laws, local city ordinances protecting renters, and the relief available to tenants for illegal evictions or rent increases. We are knowledgeable and serious about litigating civil lawsuits on behalf of tenants who have suffered injuries or economic harm from the actions or negligence of landlords. Our experience comes from first battling unscrupulous landlords in the San Francisco Bay Area for years, where the economic and life-altering stakes for rent-controlled tenants faced with evictions could not be higher. Since 2016, we have applied that experience in the Portland metropolitan and surrounding areas to successfully defend eviction proceedings as well as secure sizable settlements and judgments for tenants who have suffered injuries, habitability issues, illegal evictions and rent increases.
Experienced in Conflict Resolution and Litigation
Sharp Law, PC has the ability to effectively assist its clients in all aspects of civil litigation from torts, contract, business and neighbor disputes, to fraud, unfair business practices, and consumer issues. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who can advocate for their clients' interests, whether in the context of communications with the opposing parties or before the court and are prepared to take a case all the way to judgment, if necessary. At the same time, we recognize that litigation can be both expensive and stressful, and whenever possible, look for reasonable alternatives that will satisfy our client's interests.
