I am licensed to practice law in both the Florida state courts, and in the federal courts of the Middle District of Florida, though the focus of my practice is mainly in the state courts relating to civil/domestic disputes and criminal matters. I am the Past President of the Lake County Bar Association, and I'm also an active member of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association. ... view profile
Landlord tenant law concerns landlord and tenants' rights and responsibilities. Because the apartment you rent is your own personal space, the law places many limits on landlords' activities. For example, if a landlord tries to make you move without giving you enough notice, or ignores a rat infestation in your apartment, a landlord / tenant lawyer knows what options you have as a tenant. On the other hand, a landlord / tenant lawyer also helps landlords who have tenants breaking rules, such as moving out three months early or refusing to pay rent. Tenant eviction laws are very specific, with different rules in each city. If you are being evicted or if you have a tenant you want to evict, you may benefit from the services of a landlord / tenant lawyer.
