About Pettibone

Pettibone Tenant Law is a leading boutique tenant rights firm. Mr. Pettibone maintains a winning record against the worst landlords in San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, and surrounding areas. In partnership with non-profits and other firms, he has recovered millions in damages for Bay Area renters.

Mr. Pettibone is passionate about tenant rights and an avid, competitive negotiator. He handles habitability claims, wrongful eviction claims, mold personal injury claims, security deposit claims, move-out negotiations, roommate issues, and reasonable accommodations requests.

Mr. Pettibone provides unparalleled personal service. Driven by his own experience as a former renter, Mr. Pettibone serves tenants all along I-80 and nearby areas: San Francisco, Alameda, Sonoma, Contra Costa, Yolo, Solano, San Mateo, Napa, Marin, and Sacramento counties.

Few tenant attorneys are willing to travel to their clients and fight landlords in non-rent-controlled jurisdictions, like Fairfield, Sonoma, Napa, and Sacramento. Raised in Elk Grove and groomed as a litigator in San Francisco, Mr. Pettibone brings an understanding, passion, and tenacity to the fight against bad landlords that few attorneys can match.
