Discrimination Defense

Experienced Defense Against Housing Discrimination Charges

Individuals who are denied rental property sometimes claim they are the victims of housing discrimination because of race, gender, national origin or other factors. These charges are taken seriously by governmental bodies. If you are a landlord who has been accused of housing discrimination, you need a skilled lawyer defending you. I have defended well over one hundred discrimination cases. I am one of a few attorneys in the State of Washington who has represented clients against the U.S. Department of Justice and actually taken a case to jury trial.

I am attorney Eric Steven. I have legal savvy and extensive experience in housing discrimination cases. For almost 30 years, I have dedicated my career to protecting landlords in Spokane and the surrounding area. I can provide you with the aggressive, effective defense you deserve. My associate lawyers are also highly skilled advocates focusing on housing.

MPM is a former paralegal turned attorney with over ten years experience in housing law. JP is a young but seasoned litigator with an accomplished debate background. Our team brings the support you need when facing serious claims.

How Charges Are Brought

Issues often arise in the context of tenant screening, lease up, accommodation or modification requests. Housing discrimination cases often start when a individual makes a complaint to either a federal, state or local governmental body. Many times tenant advocacy groups like NWFHA and IFHC are involved in the claims process.

I will competently defend you against these charges on your behalf.

Experience Matters

During my career, I have handled over 100 housing discrimination cases and am one of few Washington lawyers who have taken this type of case to a federal jury trial.

Having this extensive experience allows me to provide you with exceptional defense. I am extremely knowledgeable about fair housing matters and understand how to prove discrimination has not occurred.

I have also developed good rapport with advocates from the Northwest Justice Project, Northwest Fair Housing Alliance, the Human Rights Commission, HUD, the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Attorneys Office in Spokane and Washington, D.C. My rapport with advocates and these agencies helps my clients receive favorable results.

Contact me to discuss your defense. My office, open weekdays from 9:00am until 5:00pm, is located near the Spokane courthouse.
