Joan M. Fenstermaker

Security Deposit Lawyer

What Our Clients Say

Joan Fenstermaker is the real deal. She took on our case after we basically cold-called her office. She was utterly professional, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable about tenants' rights. Not only did we get our security deposit back, but Joan found several other infractions committed by the landlords. It was an arduous process, but Joan fought with us to the end and we ended up getting a lot more than we had originally supposed. In short, go with Joan.

Joan represented me in a case where our landlord had been taking advantage of us for quite some time. Joan was absolutely fantastic and our experience was outstanding. Her experience with these sorts of cases was invaluable to us and made the experience very simple. It was extremely easy to get in contact with her and I would recommend her in a heart beat.

Joan helped me get my security deposit back from my landlord. Since she knows the RLTO in detail, she also helped win additional damages from my landlord, which I didn't even know I was owed! Joan is great to work with; she can walk you through your escalation options, and provide you the proper info to make the decision of which action to take. I recommend her.

I am so glad I hired Joan. I’m an attorney myself but don’t practice in this area. She handled the case professionally, quickly and got VERY favorable results. Due to her working probably hundreds of these cases, she pinpointed what problem areas and what strong points my case had. I would have spun my wheels trying to get maybe half of what she got. Cut to the chase, end your frustration and let Joan work it out for you.
