Madeline most recently worked as a staff attorney in the San Jose and San Francisco offices of Bay Area Legal Aid, where she represented low-income tenants against landlords and major lending institutions.

The HBOR Collaborative is funded by the Office of the California Attorney General under the national Mortgage Settlement. The Collaborative is a partnership of four organizations, National Housing Law Project, National Consumer Law Center, Tenants Together and Western Center on Law and Poverty. We offer free training, technical assistance, litigation support, and legal resources to California’s consumer attorneys and the judiciary on all aspects of the new California Homeowner Bill of Rights, including its tenant protections. The goal of the Collaborative is to ensure that California’s homeowners and tenants receive the intended benefits secured for them under the Homeowner Bill of Rights by providing legal representation with a broad array of support services and practice resources.
