The MinKwon Center’s Immigrants’ Rights Legal Clinics serve immigrant communities in the areas of immigration, housing, and labor. Many working class and Limited English Proficient immigrants receive legal consultations as well as representation.
Ms. Baek, one of our active community members, came to the MinKwon Center for assistance. Despite multiple requests, her apartment’s management company had not properly applied Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) credits, and greatly neglected her home of twenty-five years. Because of the mismanagement, Ms. Baek was unfairly overcharged in rent fees and was facing issues such as bedbug infestations and other severe maintenance problems. MinKwon’s Staff Attorney Lina Lee, Esq. advocated for Ms. Baek, against the management company, and won $11,969 in damages. Since then, Ms. Baek’s apartment has been repaired and has received settlement.
