    You can sue in federal court in New York if you sue for more than $75000 which is certainly possible with the serious injury that was sustained. An expert engineer in VA can be retained to investigate the site and make a report of the dangerous conditions. Our office can assist you if you wish.

  • My tenant had a lease two years ago. I did not renew but accepted month to month rent. Now they are leaving.

    they did not pay rent they are using security deposit which I did not agree with. and they are not answering the door or phone. What can i do to get them out. they also changed the locks which goes against the original lease agreement. so i cant g...

    Andrew’s Answer

    You can commence either a non payment or holover eviction proceeding. The faster method is the non paument with a three day notice.The security deposit cannot be used by the tenant as rent since it is intended to be used to cover any damage to the apartment. The locks cannot be changed by the tenant to exclude you.That is a breach of the lease and ground for an eviction.

  • Hi,i am trying to file fordivorse i recently found out my spouse was gay,how long will the processtake if i have enough evidence

    i also have enough proof that he cheated on me. i want my marriage annulled but i want to know if the process takes longer or if i should just file for divorse paying the court fees and attorney without saying and proving all of this?

    Andrew’s Answer

    If you wish an annullment for religious reasons or something else, the process is somewhat more involved than filing for a no fault divorce, but would take the same amount of time, if time is your concern. In either case if your husband does not contest the divorce or annullment, the process is not insurmountable and an experienced matrimonial attorney like our firm can help you immediately.
