San Francisco Bay Area Landlord & Eviction Lawyers

When it comes to landlord-tenant law, not all real estate attorneys are created equal. Bornstein Law manages these relationships on a daily basis and advises rental property owners across a wide spectrum of issues to avoid or cauterize risk and helps landlords power through all of their challenges.


Daniel Bornstein, Esq.

As the founding attorney of Bornstein Law, Daniel is a well-respected authority in landlord-tenant disputes and property management issues. With over 23 years of experience in handling real estate and civil litigation throughout the Bay Area, he also manages rental properties, is instrumental in completing real estate transactions and is renowned for his educational seminars.

Kathryn Quetel, Esq.

A seasoned real estate attorney that has forged enduring relationships among Bay Area rental housing providers, Kathryn is well versed in rent control, landlord-tenant issues and tenant buyouts, but has been instrumental in solving more complex real estate litigation that has faced some of the region’s largest residential and commercial property management companies.

Daniel Cheung, Esq.

An experienced attorney specializing in unlawful detainer actions in Bay Area rent-controlled jurisdictions, Daniel is a native speaker of Cantonese and has deep roots in the community of Asian property owners. Practicing law since 2009, he looks forward to assisting you in all of your real estate goals.

Liana Ayrapetyan, Esq.

With a wealth of experience in landlord-tenant law, Liana Ayrapetyan provides sound advice for property owners and has been instrumental in protecting the rights of landlords. She has brokered many diplomatic, speedy resolutions for all parties involved in a wide range of complex landlord-tenant disputes and property management issues.

Dylan Tong, Esq.

Dylan is the newest addition to our attorney roster, although he is not a new face. After interning with us since 2016, he earned his law degree at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, where he graduated cum laude. Dylan Tong is intimately familiar with all aspects of landlord-tenant law, and owners have no greater ally.


Daniel, I think, is doing something that is unheard of, and has not been done before, where you have the 'ultimate advocate,' advocating for the property owner in court, advocating for the property owner outside of court, with the educational classes, so this is fantastic. Nobody has done this before, and nobody has this combination of services you are offering, and I think if you didn't exist in this room we'd have to invent you.


~ Wayne Roland, President of the East Bay Rental Housing Association in a ceremony recognizing the mutual goal of helping property owners learn about their business, learn how to stay out of court, and advocating for landlords who have a stake in the community they live in.


We raise the voice of rental housing providers

Although the political rhetoric nowadays falls squarely on the side of tenants, Bornstein Law offers a fresh perspective through the lens of underrepresented property owners. Numerous media outlets have called upon us to articulate your case.




Our core values

In an era when political rhetoric falls squarely on the side of tenants, we advocate for the rights of rental property owners and help them power through their challenges in a complicated regulatory regime.
