"Daniel is that rare combination of a super effective, knowledgeable, yet compassionate and understanding attorney who also simply gets great results. Anyone with a landlord issue would be lucky and smart to have him on their side. I feel fortunate just to know him as a human being, too - he gives me hope for the future of San Francisco." -L.B. 6/2016

He is not only incredibly helpful, but very knowledgeable and keeps things relevant and relatable. He is 100% there for tenants' rights and you can be confident that he will be on your side every step of the way." -T.H. 5/2016
"Daniel was instrumental in guiding me through the murky waters of tenant-landlord disputes. We hired Daniel to represent us in front of the SF Rent Board. It was a great decision! His expertise got us a favorable decision and a financial settlement that made what could have been a VERY stressful situation a lot easier. He was very clear about explaining our rights as tenants, empowering us to defend ourselves and our place in the City." -S.E. 3/2016
"Daniel is wonderful! Not only is he an expert on local rental laws and renters' rights, he's well versed in the nuances and ruling history of our local rental board - ensuring you focus your efforts where they are most likely to succeed. Daniel understands that having a happy home is very important. He gave thorough yet measured advice that helped me to maintain a positive roommate dynamic. This is a great skill to have in an attorney who specializes in securing the most critical thing in your life: the roof over your head. Daniel's prices were more than reasonable and the guidance I received was priceless. He is truly committed to protecting the housing rights of the little guy in SF - the middle and working classes. Thank you, Daniel!"
"Daniel was critical in ending 4 years of harassment from our landlord and getting us a financial settlement from the rent board. Daniel was critical in helping us know our rights, navigate the complicated rent board system to actually defend our rights as tenants, and ultimately win a settlement for all the harassment and reduction of services we'd been living under the previous years. Thanks Daniel!" -R.P. 2/2016
"Daniel is an amazing attorney! I hired him to advise me on a potential buyout with the landlord and how to deal with my landlord who will not make repairs to my place. I definitely recommend Daniel if you need a tenant's rights attorney."
"Daniel's a great guy and cares deeply about fighting the good fight. He was super knowledgeable and explained to us very clearly what our rights were and how they were being infringed upon. We ended with a ruling in our favor: we got a settlement, we got to stay in our home, and the landlord even started leaving us alone after years of harassment. I doubt that last part is a coincidence. Being in a face-off over your home is scary stuff, especially right now in San Francisco. If you're in that unenviable position, give yourself the best leg up you can and give Daniel a call." -J.Q. 1/2016
"Daniel Wayne is the best. He helped all of us get more than expected, . Daniel did a great job letting all of us know what was happening. Thanks again Daniel for everything." -A.D. 10/2015
"I am truly lucky to have found Daniel during an extremely stressful time. From the very beginning, Daniel offered a calm and confident presence that I was extremely grateful for. He offered sound and reasonable advice while clearly explaining the options that I could consider. Daniel provided me with the education and knowledge to face my situation with confidence. I can not thank him enough and would highly recommend him to anyone going through a difficult time. Thank you Daniel!" -N.H. 8/2015
"Daniel helped me prepare well. He reached out to find many details pertinent toy my case. Things I would not have thought of. He is competent, knows the law, and knows who your up against. During the hearing he just laid out the evidence - he and I meticulously collected. The judge looked at us. Looked at the opposing counsel. The opposing counsel, with their huge stack of papers and a private eye, stepped outside with my landlord. In 30 min they came back in and withdrew their petition."
"After my first meeting with Daniel, it was obvious that he is a top notch professional who I could trust. He is knowledgeable, diligent, thorough in obtaining all needed information, plus he is truly a genuine person and is easy to work with. Daniel was there by my side every step of the way, and I always felt that he really cared about the final outcome. He represented me at the Rent Board hearing with great results! Daniel is a skilled and diligent attorney who will do his best to help his clients."
"WE NEED MORE LIKE HIM!When I went to see Daniel, I was in danger of being evicted with 3 days notice and no cash settlement. Long story short, with Daniel's help, I got almost $60,000 settlement, plus 7 months free rent. Easy to work with, upbeat, and on the renter's side. Highly recommended." -L.Y. 4/2015
"Daniel went above and beyond in his support of our case. After learning that our landlord was trying to unlawfully evict me and my roommates, we reached out to Daniel for advice. He was extremely responsive in addressing our questions/concerns and clearly laid out our various rights and legal options. As a result of his advice, we were able to reach a settlement with our landlord that met our needs and fairly compensated us for the difficulty and trauma that come along with having to find a new home in San Francisco. Can't thank Daniel enough for all of his hard work on our case!" -D.K. 2/2015
"I retained Daniel's services for some questions about a situation arising from my lease. He was extremely thorough and professional. He was very helpful and gave both me both an opinion about my options according to the letter of the law (which might provoke a legal tussle) and my practical options to avoid any litigation. I really appreciated this perspective."

If you could give more than 5 stars, you would see them connected to his good name. Thank you for your expertise and generous heart." -P.M. 12/2014
"Daniel fought for my wife and me against one of the most infamous landlord attorneys in San Francisco. While this attorney was belligerent and bullying, Daniel kept his professionalism. Although the other attorney was disorganized and made countless errors, Daniel remained deliberate, thorough and thoughtful. In the end, we got a fair settlement at a very fair price. Daniel was sensitive to our financial situation and did not bill us for any unnecessary time. He was also extremely sensitive to our privacy and confidentiality; we felt protected." -E.R. 7/2014
"Faced with a 60-day notice of a 70% rent increase and knowing very little about tenancy laws in SF, Daniel came to the rescue. Daniel was extraordinary. Daniel was extremely experienced, de-mystifying the entire experience and explaining everything in a clear and concise manner over email and in person. Working with Daniel was seamless. If I had follow-up questions, I didn't hesitate to email or call him. His fee schedule was transparent and the initial estimate was inline with what we actually paid in the end." D.T. 6/2014
"Daniel is willing to go the extra mile for you, he is super easy to talk to and communicates via email daily if needed, he will call you back within the same day and will do whatever it takes....he is kind with empathy (hard to find these days), he is funny and smart. He is succinct and will break down complexity to understandable and simple terms, line by line if needed. He is patient and down to earth. And most importantly knows the law. You will be in great hands. I know I made the right choice. I can only give my highest recommendation. You will be in great hands with great knowledge." -K.E. 4/2014
"My experience working with Daniel far surpassed my expectations and I feel that people need to know how good he is. Daniel is a great advocate for tenant's rights in a city where landlords will do anything they can to screw their tenants. I absolutely recommend Daniel for anyone needing legal help." -E.S. 3/19/2014
"Daniel was helpful and very professional. He took the time to understand my situation (complex as it was) and then carefully explain what I was and was not legally required to do. He was knowledgeable, respectful, and was able to put me at ease with respect to the situation. In the future, should I have any further tenant issues in
San Francisco, I'll be sure to consult Daniel again." -J.F. 1/2014
