Welcome to Tenant Defenders

Tenant Lawyer – Marc D. Whitham

Represents Tenants and Consumers Throughout San Diego.


San Diego Tenants' Rights Attorney

My name is Marc D. Whitham and I’m pleased to welcome you to Tenant Defenders.  I am a tenants’ rights attorney that specializes in defending against wrongful evictions.  I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me directly to see if I can help you with your situation. Whether you are facing eviction, or need to know how to assert your rights as a renter, I am available to speak with you.

Many tenants mistakenly believe that they have no options when they run into a dispute with the landlord, or that they cannot afford a good lawyer.

Legal representation does make a difference, and while I cannot offer free consultations, I am happy to speak with you before you to commit to paying any fees.  If you are working with a limited budget, then let me know what you can afford.

Don’t despair.  Assistance is available and it will make a difference.  I am an experienced litigator who is not afraid to take aggressive action against landlords attempting to abuse the court system, or who refuse to live up to their obligations under the law.

Often times, a good tenant lawyer will help his clients to avoid facing a confrontation in court, and eliminate the risk of facing eviction. I have counseled thousands of tenants regarding their housing rights, and defended hundreds of renters facing trial.

Even if you are not facing a wrongful eviction, but simply need your landlord to take action and obey the law, you will benefit from the experience of an attorney who specializes in tenants rights.   When necessary, I will not hesitate to bring legal action against negligent and abusive landlords for damages.
