Gigi M., San Francisco

A friend referred me to the Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold- and I am forever grateful I found them! Ms. Wiederhold is a wonderful and committed advocate for unlawfully evicted tenants; she and her colleague walked me through the legal process, formalities and jargon. I felt comfortable entrusting my case to her care. I would like to recommend her legal services because I am so pleased with the results she brought about- she is hardworking, ethical and reliable. Ms. Wiederhold is trustworthy, tenacious and will fight for your rights!

Stacy O., San Francisco

If you find yourself navigating the San Francisco Rent Board, tenants right’s blogs, handbooks, and free legal organizations regarding tenant/landlord issues I suggest you contact Mary Catherine Wiederhold as soon as possible.

Despite my resourceful nature and very savvy internet skills, I learned the hard way that there is far too much San Francisco Rent Board bureaucracy and lawful loop holes that prevented me from finding the answers to my housing situation. I lost months researching landlord/tenant rights and I was stressed every single minute. Save yourself the grief and obtain legal representation.

Mary Catherine Wiederhold is knowledgeable! Experienced! Fair! Direct! Smart! And interested in protecting your rights! MCW can empower you by providing lawful facts, solutions and options to your situation.

Gwen S., San Francisco

We were referred to Mary Catherine during a very stressful and oppressive situation with our commercial landlord. She didn’t waste any time, being very respectful of our financial situation. She took the time to get a full understanding of the situation, then took the most effective actions to move us through and past the situation.

M.G., San Francisco

“Working with you gave us so much emotional comfort and reassurance during this horrific experience, we can’t thank you enough.”

M.F., San Francisco

“The Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold did a fantastic job of representing me in a case against a former landlord. Mary Catherine and Courtney were thorough and persistent in what turned into a difficult case. They worked with me through unavailability and international travel during the years of the case, and ultimately brought us to a great outcome. I highly recommend their legal services.”

D.L., San Francisco

The Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold represented me in my case regarding an illegal eviction from my apartment. She exuded confidence and resilience during the entire process. Her aggressiveness, decisiveness, candor and professionalism were exemplary. Mary Catherine and her associate, Courtney Brown, kept me up to date with my case and were extremely dedicated to the endeavor.

They approached my case with enthusiasm and vigor. Her team, including the indispensable Courtney Brown, conducted themselves candidly and expertly with true concern for their clients.

D.A., San Francisco

Mary Catherine Wiederhold and Courtney M. Brown were the best tenants-rights lawyers I could have hoped to find. They guided me through the intricacies of the judicial system with clarity and finesse. Even when it felt like the case was not moving, their frequent updates gave reassurance and insight. We could not have achieved our positive results without their tenacity, intelligence and fighting spirit.

N.M. San Francisco

“I highly recommend the Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold. Arriving at the law office stressed and overwhelmed, Ms. Wiederhold showed patience when initially explaining my options and potential recourse.

Over the years working with the team, I experienced straightforward, professional communication with explanations and updates whenever possible. MCW and Courtney Brown did an excellent job at making sure I understood all the circumstances and scenarios in order to make informed choices. I always felt that my best interest was top of mind, which helped build trust and communication, leading to my case being settled. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner. If you’re looking for professionalism, thoroughness, diligence and clear communication, look no further.”

M.M., San Francisco

“I would like to thank my attorney Mary Catherine Wiederhold and her associate Courtney Brown for representing me in my case regarding my illegal eviction where I was wrongfully evicted.

I previously spoke with several other attorneys regarding this matter but did not get a good feel about retaining them. I found her name under a San Francisco Rent Board referral list and after speaking with her I knew right away that she was the best fit for my case. Ms. Wiederhold and staff were thorough and worked diligently on my case resulting in a satisfying positive outcome.
I highly recommend their firm for anyone in a similar predicament and personally thank them.”

S.C., San Francisco

“I, S.C., fully recommend Mary Catherine Wiederhold and Courtney Brown as attorneys to represent any citizen who needs legal assistance. They both did an outstanding job getting me a substantial sum of money for representing me in an illegal eviction I was facing.  Thank You both for all your help & assistance!”

T.L., San Francisco

“Being served papers was one of the most stressful experiences but Mary Catherine and Courtney made the process so simple. They responded and helped us through the process. Their knowledge and expertise as tenant lawyers really put me at ease and we’re there for me the entire process. They really do put tenants first and are willing to fight for you!”

E.A., San Francisco

“The process and communication was efficient and effective. I appreciate the work that went on behind the scenes. The outcome of my case was great. I’m very grateful, I’d recommend using the Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold to my friends or family and especially myself for tenant representation. Thank you again to everyone on the team!”

Real Estate Practice Areas

Neighbor Disputes

Whether it’s noise, property line issues, visual nuisance or parking problems – neighbor disputes can compromise your home investment and your well being. If mediation fails, or is not an option, consider legal advice and protect your rights.

Suing Contractors

Complaints against contractors, such as for breach of contract, can be complicated and expensive. If you have been scammed, or abandoned mid-job by an unresponsive contractor, or stuck with non-professional results that need to be torn out and redone – you could have a case.

Was your rental unit damaged or destroyed by fire? Have you been locked out of your home by your landlord? As experienced Bay Area real estate attorneys, we represent tenants facing these types of difficult situations. Contact us to help you protect your tenant rights when serious issues arise.

Homeowner Association Disputes

HOAs sometimes create costly legal problems that can often be resolved with skillful legal action. Rules and regulations are easily misunderstood by both homeowners and the governing body of the HOA.
