Attorney Needed For UD and Elder Abuse Case -- Possible Contingency or Pro Bono

Contact Name: Ms. Evans | [email protected]
Description:
A woman named Ms. Evans has housed people in need in her home for years in South LA. It appears that some swindlers convinced her to sign some loan documents with the promise of helping her start a non-profit. They now have an unlawful detainer action against her and are kicking her out of her home. She is elderly and not well physically. She filed a civil action against them in pro per. She needs legal help fighting the UD and taking on her civil case (elder abuse). My guess is that it would require a chunk of pro bono time but could possibly lead to a contingency client for the elder abuse. Her numbers are 323-233-1716 or 323-233-0917. Thanks!

Residential Rental Availability for a Friend

Name:
Gary Stern | [email protected] 
Posting Title:
Residential rental availability for a friend
Description:
One of my daughter's closest friends is a lighting designer and coordinator for live shows and events. For the past 9 years he was with my daughter at Disney on Ice, then spent 2 years with the touring company of "Stomp." He and his girlfriend are now returning to the Los Angeles area where this fine young man will be seeking regular freelance work. They are looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom residential rental, with a max budget being 1600/month. As the young man is starting a new phase of his career, he does not know where the bulk of his work will yet take him, and therefore the location in which they reside is of less importance than price and safety. They have been looking at places in the valley, as that is where he lived years ago and thus he is a bit more familiar with the area (NoHo, Burbank, Van Nuys, etc.). Leads would be appreciated. I will pass them along to my friend.
