In furtherance of the firm’s commitment to pro bono service, Vandeventer Black Attorneys Jennifer Eaton and Daniel Stephens took on a pro bono representation against a landlord who—in the cold winter months—left tenant and tenant’s family without heat for 45 days. The pair took the matter to trial and secured a judgment for the tenant in general district court. And, yes, the heat was finally fixed.
When asked about why she took the case, Eaton said:
“As most of us prepared for the holidays, our client faced the incredible hardship of living without heat. Something had to be done, and I am proud to have helped make things right.”
“We were pleased with the positive outcome at the trial, and that the family can hopefully have some stability.”
