I made a very expensive purchase that went horribly wrong thanks to an unscrupulous merchant. I live a great distance from where the transaction took place and without the professionalism that Mr. Hinson showed I would have been lost. He won my case for me and did so in a timely manner. I wouldn't hesitate to use services again.
I had been renting a house for over a year and finally realized the house is mold infested. I had signed a new lease in November and at the end of December I withheld rent to the landlord trying to enforce them to have the house inspected. They suddenly decided that they were not renewing the lease after I had already paid them the new amount for 3 months. During the past year my daughter and I had been getting sick off and on which wasn't normal for either one of us. I did an in home mold test as well as having a contractor come inspect the duct work with an infared scope and a different air conditioning company inspect the main air handler in the house. Not only did my mold test have a significant amount of mold growing in it after 2 days, but both, the contractor and air quality person found mold present in the ducts. The air handler has about 1/2 inch thick of mold growing on the back of it and mold growing on the inside of it. Definitely, airborne. This is what my daughter and I had been breathing in for the last year. Not only have we been dizzy, sinus infections, bronchial infections, and skin rashes. The owner/property manager did nothing about it except to tell us to move. (At this point, all I wanted to do was move) I basically had 2 weeks to find a place for us to live. Due to my daughter's school zone, being a single mother, and working full time, I was not having any luck finding a place and no family close to stay with. The property manager filed an eviction for us to get out. I had a consultation with one attorney who was not very helpful. She told me to call or e-mail her with any questions. After a week I e-mailed her some questions as to which she never responded. I finally was referred to Matthew by the Florida Bar and he responded right away. He was very informative and professional in helping me understand my rights as well as explaining things pertaining to my case. He was extremely knowledgable in the area of expertise that I was dealing with. He answered all my questions thoroughly and gave me more information than I expected. After going to court this past Friday, the eviction was dropped. I would definitely refer anyone to him who needs legal advice in this type of situation as well as any other legal needs that he specializes in. I will also use him in the future for other legal needs.
The tenants in my Jacksonville rental home were getting more difficult to work with. I had a verbal agreement concerning a move out date and even provided a financial incentive of free rent from the date of our verbal agreement until the move-out date. They accepted the financial incentive (stopped paying rent) but never moved out. Finally, after 3 months free rent, I insisted they move out immediately only to be advised I was violating their tenant’s rights under Florida Law.
My Real Estate agent referred me to Mr. Hinson. After consulting with Mr. Hinson and providing necessary documents he formulated several action plans we could pursue and explained the pros and cons of each. To my great satisfaction, Mr. Hinson handled everything and had them out of my house without incident in 30 calendar days – no court appearances required by me. Case Closed!
Mr. Hinson is very professional yet easy to work with. He always conducted himself in a manner which conveyed he worked for me – unlike other attorneys I have dealt with who treated me like an ‘interruption’ of their busy schedule. I would challenge anyone to find an attorney with more knowledge of Florida Real Estate, Lease or Property laws.
