"The Legal Do’s and Don’ts of Self Storage"
Greenberger and Brewer, LLP
Our presenter Jeffrey Greenberger returns to the ALSSA Winter Expo. This year Jeff has complied the top mistakes
he sees made by self-storage operators and put them together to remind our members of important Do's and Don'ts
in self-storage, and how to avoid the mistakes he sees every day. Some of the topics included are unintentionally
creating a bailment over the stored property, outdoor vehicle storage issues that are different from self-storage, giving
access to the wrong person in the event of occupant’s death, disability or deportment, and many more. Jeff is well
regarded in our industry for presenting relevant information in a understandable and humorous way, making the legal
portion of our education session a lot less boring.
