    Ellen Rappaport Tanowitz represented me against my former landlord, who had violated a dozen landlord-tenant laws. Ms. Tanowitz and her colleagues were, at every stage of a very stressful experience, professional, reliable, trustworthy, and responsive. She was fair both to me, as well as to my landlord, because she explained clearly the ways my landlord had violated the law, and how she had not. Ms. Tanowitz always patiently helped me see the big picture; I moved out, and we ultimately won! Read less
