Landlord-Tenant Issues

Defending Eviction Suits, and Resolving Disputes Between Landlords and Tenants

An eviction action often moves very quickly. The time between being served with eviction papers, the subsequent hearing date, and the issuance of the papers your landlord needs to put you, your family and your belongings on the street is just a matter of weeks. Your landlord may also be able to obtain a judgment against you, which could follow you for years. If you’re facing eviction, it can be extremely beneficial to have a lawyer on your side. Residential rentals are highly regulated. Your landlord must follow strict rules before, during and after the eviction process. If you owe back rent or breached your rental agreement, you may be able to cure the problem and stay in your rental. Even if that is not possible, you may be able to get additional time to move out.
