NY Times Says Eviction Rates Are On the Rise – Here’s How You Can Help

On Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the Housing Court, volunteers offer legal assistance to pro se landlords and tenants.

On Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the Housing Court, volunteers offer legal assistance to a packed hallway of pro se landlords and tenants.

We hope our readers saw this New York Times article featured in last week’s issue of BBA Week. While we appreciate the shout out to a 2012 study by the Boston Bar Association (thanks, NYT!), the article included some sobering statistics that shed light on the impact of a booming real estate market on tenants.

Here are some highlights from the article:

  • Massachusetts experienced an 11 percent increase in evictions between 2010 and 2013.
  • The majority of people facing evictions are people of color, people with disabilities, people who have suffered extreme health crises or a long-term chronic illness.

So, what can be done? Is there any way we can help reverse this startling trend? Well, we wouldn’t be Beyond the Billable if we didn’t offer our readers some way help solve the problem. The BBA’s Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program allows lawyers to give back and directly affect rising eviction rates by assisting unrepresented tenants and landlords directly on site at the Boston Housing Court on eviction day. Consider the following when reading the statistics below – the BBA’s 2012 study on Civil Right to Counsel found that renters with lawyers were two times as likely to avoid eviction than those without. So, what type of difference are we making? Since the program’s inception in 1999, volunteers have assisted more than 15,500 landlords and tenants. This year alone, volunteers assisted over 1,000 individuals.

Impressive numbers aside, there’s always more to do — and we need your help. If you are interested in helping tenants who are facing eviction, and landlords dealing with housing issues, sign up for the upcoming Landlord Tenant Pro Bono Training on October 28th from 3-6 pm at the BBA.

BBA Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program Celebrates 15 Years of Helping Pro Se Litigants

Last Thursday, volunteers, court employees, and program leadership gathered at 16 Beacon to celebrate the success of the Lawyer for the Day Program in the Boston Housing Court Program at the 15th anniversary celebration of the Program.  Since the Program’s inception in 1999, over 12,000 volunteers have helped more than 15,000 landlords and tenants navigate through the Boston Housing Court.  In addition to the opportunity to network and enjoy food and drink, the evening was filled with a number of volunteer appreciation awards to longtime volunteers who are essential to its longevity. First Justice of the Boston Housing Court Jeffrey Winik presented awards to Sharon Jones (The Law Office of Sharon V. Jones), Andy Cohn (WilmerHale), and Housing Court Specialists Michael Neville, Alex Valderrama, Hector Jenkins, Delia Mathes, and Catarina Andrade.

Check out more highlights from the evening below:

First Justice Jeffrey Winik (Boston Housing Court) recognized Mike Neville, Chief Housing Specialist, Alex Valderrama, Assistant Chief Housing Specialist, and Catarina Andrade, Housing Specialist, for their dedication to ensuring that landlords and tenants have access to justice in the Boston Housing Court.

Attorneys Learn Ins and Outs Of Housing Court

Chris Saccardi (The Law Office of Christopher T. Saccardi), Lawrence Wind (The Law Office of Lawrence A. Wind), and Judge Jeffrey Winik (Boston Housing Court) led Monday’s  Housing Court training.

On Monday evening we kicked off a week of Boston Housing Court events at 16 Beacon with “Trying a Case in Housing Court.” The BBA partnered with the Volunteer Lawyers Project to teach attorneys the ins and outs of trying a Housing Court case from opening to closing – with a special presentation on evidence rules as they pertain to eviction cases. In exchange for the free training, attorneys are expected to volunteer with the Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program – which brings us to our next event.

As our readers may remember from this post, we will be celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program this Thursday at 5 pm. Be sure to join us and salute the amazing accomplishments of this program (more than 15,000 pro se litigants helped!) and thank our hard working volunteers. Be there!

Monday’s training was a great success, with more than 35 attorneys in attendance. To learn more about the experience, Beyond the Billable sat down with event panelist and seasoned veteran of the housing court Chris Saccardi (The Law Office of Christopher T. Saccardi) to hear more about the training. Here’s what he had to say:

What do you hope attendees learned from the training?

“I hope that attorneys who are considering taking their first pro bono housing case feel a little bit more confident appearing in front of the Housing Court judges and potentially taking their case to trial. Our goal was to give attendees some tips on how to conduct a trial in the Housing Court and to give them the opportunity to hear from Judge Winik, who has been a big supporter of the Volunteer Lawyers Project’s pro bono programs. “

Why should attorneys get involved in pro bono efforts in the Housing Court? How can pro bono experience help attorneys build a practice?

“First, regardless of one’s practice area, taking cases at the Housing Court is an excellent way to gain valuable litigation experience. Because the vast majority of litigants are unrepresented, there are ample opportunities to appear for various motion hearings and, if participants wish, to conduct trials. Second, if an attorney is interested in taking housing cases as part of their private practice, I can’t think of a better way to gain the procedural and substantive knowledge necessary to successfully pursue such cases. Third, while these are pro bono cases and attorneys should not necessarily expect to be paid, there is the potential for an award of attorney’s fees if one wins under a statute that includes a fee shifting provision. Finally, the most important reason to volunteer is because there is a large, unmet need for representation, particularly among the low- and middle-income population that VLP typically serves. These individuals often face an attorney on the other side and the involvement of a volunteer attorney can often make a huge difference in the outcome of the case, sometimes resulting, for example, in a preserved tenancy where an unrepresented tenant might otherwise have ended up homeless.”

Continuing Wiley Vaughan’s Legacy Through the Lawyer for the Day in the Housing Court Program

We know that our readers are familiar with the Boston Bar Association’s Vaughan Fund, which supports the Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program. However, as we look forward to celebrating the 15th year of the program on April 10th, Beyond the Billable wanted to give our readers a firsthand look at the man who inspired the fund.

In 1999, Herbert “Wiley” Vaughan helped launch the Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program. Wiley enjoyed a lengthy 47-year career as a highly respected real estate lawyer at WilmerHale LLP before retiring from the firm in 1995. After his retirement, Wiley continued to work with organizations and causes he believed in, including the Boston Bar Association and representation for pro se litigants. When the Pro Bono Committee of the BBA’s Real Estate Section was attempting to create a program to assist individuals and families facing the loss of their homes as well as landlords in need of a better understanding of their rights, Wiley jumped at the chance to lead their efforts. Through his tireless work, he was able to secure not only a tenant’s advisory table at Housing Court, but also a landlord’s table for landlords who qualified under income standards.

But don’t take it from us. Hear from those who know Wiley best:

“Wiley was a giant not only for his real estate expertise but for his commitment to access to justice. The Boston Bar Association’s Lawyer for a Day in the Housing Court Program would not exist but for Wiley Vaughan.” – Hon. Robert B. Foster, Associate Justice, Massachusetts Land Court

“Wiley Vaughan was — to use a phrase he spoke of when referring to others — “a person of quality” who had a clarity of purpose, an integrity, and an openness to ideas that endeared him to his friends and his colleagues, and enriched every institution with which he was involved.” – Andy Cohn, WilmerHale LLP

Thanks to his dedication and support, Wiley was once nicknamed the “Father” of the Lawyer for the Day Program. Since the Program’s inception 15 years ago, more than 12,000 volunteers from law firms, solo practices and in-house corporate legal departments have provided legal assistance and advice to more than 15,500 unrepresented tenants and landlords. Join us in celebrating Wiley, the program, and others, at 5:00 p.m. on April 10th at 16 Beacon Street.

The Boston Bar Foundation’s Vaughan Fund was established in recognition of the 10-year anniversary of the BBA Lawyer for the Day Program and Wiley Vaughan’s stellar leadership. The Fund helps support the pro bono and public service projects of the Real Estate Section. This year, the BBF has raised over $5,000 for the Fund, allowing for the purchase of essential materials needed to run the program. Click here to learn more.

BBA Housing Court Program Reaches Over 15,000 in 15 Year History

Lawyer for the Day 4

Busy scene at the Boston Housing Court, where  BBA volunteers have been providing legal assistance to landlords and tenants for 15 years.

Did you know that approximately 90 percent of tenants and 50 percent of landlords in the Boston Housing Court don’t have legal representation? Since 1999, the BBA’s Lawyer for the Day in the Housing Court Program has acted as a lifeline for pro se landlords and tenants, with volunteers providing more than 15,000 pro se litigants with legal assistance.

This year, the Program has been able provide representation to over 450 tenants and 100 landlords. Last Wednesday, the Program also launched a monthly initiative with Burns & Levinson LLP that will assist Section 8 clients facing eviction. As our members know, a lawyer can make all the difference for families who are facing the loss of their homes and landlords who need to better understand their rights.

Beyond the Billable checked in with Joanna Allison (Volunteer Lawyers Project) to learn more about the Program. Here’s what she had to say:

“The Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program gives a voice to so many in need. This Program is a model not only for legal professionals and law firms, but for the nation as a whole. I am proud to be a part of a program that prioritizes increased access to justice and look forward to watching the program grow and expand its reach.”

The Boston Bar Foundation Vaughan Fund covers essential materials needed to run the program, such as updated signage and nametags to allow for volunteer attorneys to be easily identified. This year the BBF has already raised over $5,000 for the Vaughan Fund. Are you interested in supporting this Program? Learn more about making a contribution or how you can volunteer.

Join us in celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program, on April 10th at 5:00 p.m. It will be an evening of food and drinks while we acknowledge the hard work of volunteers, Housing Court staff and the many others who make the program possible.

A Student Perspective: A Day in the Boston Housing Court

Guest Post: Samantha Odreman is the current Lawyer Referral Service Co-op Intern at the BBA. Born in Venezuela, Samantha is finishing her sophomore year at Northeastern University where she studies International Affairs.

Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to go to Housing Court and found it a fascinating experience. I met with the attorneys who volunteer for the BBA’s Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program to help hundreds of landlords and tenants in need of a fair resolution. Over the course of the morning, I observed the people who entered the courthouse looking nervous and anxious begin to see the difference the volunteers were going to be able to make. After talking the attorneys, they seemed to calm down. Throughout the day, I watched landlords and tenants working with the volunteers to prepare their cases and get some answers. It was interesting to see that most landlords were big housing corporations with experienced attorneys, whereas tenants were mostly on their own. Inside the courtroom, most cases were sent to mediation and the rest were dismissed because one of the parties had defaulted. However, I was lucky enough to witness different hearings and see first hand the amazing work that volunteer attorneys do for their clients.

After a very busy morning, Judge Jeffrey Winik, First Justice of the Boston Housing Court, invited a small group of us to the front of the courtroom to ask questions. He explained why he cared so much about the people who came to Court and the importance of the work he does. He is very much aware of how much power and authority the Housing Court has and the responsibility that carries. He works hard to make sure both parties get the best outcome. I really admire his commitment to people and his passion for doing things right.

Going to Housing Court definitely made me see things from a different perspective. It is very hard to go through a situation where you could lose your home because you cannot pay or because someone did not pay you. However, it eases my mind to know that there are people who really want to make things work and are willing to make an effort, and I am glad there is a system in place for those who choose to do just that.
