Santa Monica Tenants' Rights Clinic

Attorney Susan Hartley is founder of Santa Monica Tenants' Rights ClinicSanta Monica lawyer Susan Hartley is the founder of the Santa Monica Tenants’ Rights Clinic. She assists Santa Monica tenants with landlord/tenant questions, provides counseling and advice about existing landlord/tenant problems, and furnishes legal assistance referrals.

The new clinic is modeled after the Coalition for Economic Survival Tenants’ Rights Clinic conducted by Attorney Elena Popp in Plummer Park in West Hollywood every Saturday. Hartley has volunteered there. “I’ve long believed there was a need in Santa Monica for this type of clinic. Renters tell me over and over again that there is no help for them in Santa Monica. Santa Monica residents shouldn’t have to go out of town for help,” said Hartley.

There is a limit of five tenants per session. Reservations are required. As the volunteer staff grows, the Clinic will expand to handle more tenants’ questions and issues.

The Santa Monica Tenants’ Rights Clinic is held the first and third Saturday of each month at the law offices of Susan J. Hartley, 2530 Wilshire Blvd, Third Floor, Santa Monica, CA 90403. Reservations are required. A donation of $15-$25 is requested. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please call 310-866-8102 to reserve space.
