Western Center on Law and Poverty Honors Julie L. Fieber
On June 14, 2018, the attorneys at Western Center on Law and Poverty honored Julie L. Fieber at Fair Shake in Los Angeles. Fieber was recognized for her excellent work on Cruz v. Sierra Corporate Management. The case is a class action on behalf of low income residents of a Redwood City mobile home park over illegal and fraudulent rental practices by the park owner. The suit seeks to compel the park owner’s compliance with state and local rent ordinances to protect the homes of this vulnerable population.
Western Center was formed in 1967 by a passionate group of attorneys and legal scholars from USC, UCLA and Loyola law schools who sought to create a unique organization, driven by the belief that low-income Californians deserve the finest possible legal representation before every institution that shapes their lives.
