In any lease or housing arrangement, both landlords and their tenants have certain rights as well as responsibilities. However, disputes may arise when it comes to how either party exercises its rights or enforces its responsibilities. When this happens, it is usually critical to seek the services of an attorney because these rights and responsibilities are often governed by complex statutes.

Evictions are among the common areas in which disputes arise. If you are a landlord, we can help you follow the detailed rules such as notifying your tenant of the eviction lawsuit and filing the right documents.

If a tenant is suing you for major property damage arising from your negligence to maintain your rental property, our landlord lawyer will be able to advise you on the best approach to take.
