SUNDAY CONVERSATION: Longtime attorney Jeff Feigelson talks eviction moratorium, tenant rights (podcast)

Jeff Feigelson has been an attorney for over 30 years. He’s represented tenants and landlords. Since the start of the pandemic he has been representing tenants in their cases involving eviction. Why?
