Spoke to Sylvia on 32624. Explained the situation to her. She requested that we call the toll free number next day and speak with a legal representative.Called today 32724. Spoke to a young gal who took some information and then asked I call again after lunch. This was around 1130sm.At 120pm I called again. Spoke to another female rep. She spoke to my mother whos trying to seek legal tenant landlord advice. The call was transferred. Javier takes the call. My mother who is 70 isnt as detailed as she should be. So I take over and explain that my mother has experienced harassment intimidation verbal and psychological abuse and was told she will need to move.Javier refers my mother to the California Civil Rights Department. No legal advice was offered nothing. The agency he referred us to has very poor ratings. Practically every review stated that CCRD did nothing for them. In fact they do not give legal advice either.When a tenant is experiencing intimidation threats coercion verbal abuse from the landlord there should be legal avenues recourse for the tenant. How is it that tenants have rights but are unable to obtain that information to protect and defend themselvesMay as well just hope for the best or RUN

A waste of precious time and later told they couldnt help.They are given a zero rating from me for their lack of proper response lack of knowledgeable people.I was sent a letter from their office weeks later saying they couldnt help.They should know their business and limitations. Dont waste peoples precious time limits .

Second edit my case got dismissed because my paralegal failed to inform me of any dates paperwork and failed to make arrangements communicate or otherwise. Now all of the trauma I suffered was for nothing and my DVRO was dismissed and cant be reissued.Edit its a while later. I dont get phone calls or texts or updates. My calls and texts go unanswered and whenever I call for help they said we cant help you or we dont do that. Youre better off hiring a lawyer cause at least theyll continue to help you and your case. CCLS will leave you on read like that toxic ex.While it does take them a very long time to process your information and call you back its absolutely worth it. Their team is so supportive very efficient and so understanding. I got Lydia Velazco to help me with my situation and I couldnt have been happier with the way it went. Shes been there to help me every step of the way and was very supportive. Thank you.

These people are awesome this is where you will get help finding justice.This review is based off my experience which was over a year agoI lived in a slummy apartment in Clovis California. I had mold issues from our HVAC system from 2014 to 2021. It was never remedied. Landlords would change work orders would disappear from my file. I was an essential worker during the pandemic and ended up sick. Part of my recovery included not being able to stay home because of the mold and management fighting with me about it. Long story short my upstairs neighbors water heater broke and flooded my apartment. I was out of town. Landlord never even told me. A day later I come home to that and I even had a cat that was left inside that flood.Central California Legal Services advised me of my rights and responsibilities. I ended up homeless with kids and a cat because of that complex. I fought them in court all on my own while they bought their whole complex staff. Had my proof in order and I won. I had my proof but CCLS helped me do things right. Thank you for helping my familyAs a side note they cover the Fresno area. Clovis doesnt have code inforcement you have to have a building inspector come out. I wasted time to find that out which is why Im sharing about building inspectors. No one is going to tell you that outright.Madera county is a different agency and a horrible one at that.Good luck if youre going through it dont give up THERE IS HOPE IN CALIFORNIA and it starts with people being educated and informed so they can in turn advocate for themselves and others. Thats what CCLS does gives you back your power.

Helpful but extraordinarily busy. There were a couple of clerical errors that needed correction after completing consultations. Otherwise very good.

This is from my past experience. These are hard working people helping us out in the legal process that I personally knew nothing about. I wouldnt have been able to do it without them.
