“The pipes can’t handle it.”

Soon after renting a house, Ms. Ryan discovered a serious mold problem and an overflowing toilet. Instead of making repairs, the landlord instructed her to throw her used toilet tissue in a garbage can because “the pipes can’t handle it.” The dispute led to an eviction filing.

Represented by a team of star attorneys from Taylor English, including Frank Virgin and Ramsey Knowles, Ms. Ryan raised a counterclaim and won a judgment of $1,300. But instead of paying her, the landlord turned around and filed ANOTHER eviction! A scathing letter from the Taylor English dream team made the landlord quickly surrender – he dismissed the groundless eviction and finally paid Ms. Ryan the money she won. Pro bono lawyers make a real difference in people’s lives.
