Founding Attorney & Broker of Record
J.D., University of California, Berkeley - School of Law, 1992
Bornstein Law exemplifies the personal qualities of its founding partner, Daniel Bornstein.
Rental property owners have no greater ally than Daniel Bornstein, the Bay Area’s foremost authority on rent control, complex real estate litigation, property management, and landlord-tenant matters.
He is not only the founding attorney of Bornstein Law, but the Broker of Record for Bay Property Group, as well as an expert witness called upon to testify in all manner of thorny disputes that occur in rental units.
Renowned for his educational workshops, Daniel enjoys imparting his insights to landlords and the professionals who serve them by hosting popular events at the Fort Mason Center, but is just as affable speaking to organizations and close-knit groups seeking to make sense of an ever-expanding regulatory regime. Offering a unique perspective through the lens of rental property owners, numerous media outlets have elicited his take on many vexing issues germane to the industry.
Among his many professional affiliations, Daniel was a director of the Rental Housing Association of Northern Alameda County and is a member of a number of local, state, and national organizations, including the San Francisco Association of Realtors, the National Association of Residential Property Managers, the California Apartment Association and the Real Property Law Section of the California State Bar. He has also been a volunteer attorney with the Aids Legal Referral Panel, assisting people with HIV/AIDS to improve their health by providing free and low-cost legal services and education on civil matters.
After earning a B.A. Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Michigan, Daniel went on to UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law, where he was a staff editor of the journal International Tax & Business Lawyer.
