DANIEL SAVER, ESQ.| SENIOR ATTORNEY, HOUSING PROGRAM

Daniel Saver has pioneered our community lawyering practice, which combines direct representation of individual families with legal support for broader efforts in the community to bring about long-term, systemic change. As part of this model, Daniel has cultivated deep, strategic partnerships with community organizers in order to contribute to a truly grassroots movement in which the people most affected by displacement pressures can shape the trajectory of change in their neighborhoods. He has collaborated closely with community-based organizations and local governments to craft locally appropriate anti-displacement policies, with particular expertise in rent stabilization and just cause for eviction. Additionally, Daniel has worked in coalition with community partners on equitable land use campaigns, leading participatory community planning processes and advocating for inclusive community development. Daniel represents renters on the full spectrum of landlord-tenant issues, ranging from enforcing health and safety codes to defending tenants threatened with eviction. Daniel first joined our team as a Skadden Fellow, and previously clerked for the Honorable Judge Jerome Farris on the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Daniel graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School, and earned a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley.
