I am a business lawyer whose practice is limited strictly to transactional work. What does that mean? It means I am not a litigator and that I work hard to keep my clients out of court by avoiding problems before they happen. When litigation becomes inevitable, I work with litigation attorneys in my office to make sure my clients receive vigorous, cost effective representation.
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.
