I'm a lawyer in Lima, Ohio, and I deal largely with criminal law matters. I am also accredited as a lawyer with the Department of Veterans Affairs. As an Iraq War veteran with 23 years of military service, I understand the needs of today's vets.Before becoming a lawyer, I spent 25 years as a journalist, newspaper editor and newspaper columnist.
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.
