Excellent Service and Prompt Response
Fight back! You will be glad you did. Attorney Alex personally called me right away and after ascertaining I deserved my deposit back, he went to work. A certified letter from Alex is all it took and I received my deposit back plus they had to pay my attorney's fee. Woo Hoo! Go Littleguy! I highly recommend everyone to fight back when your security deposit is unjustly kept if there were no damages and your rent was paid up to date. Reasonable wear and tear does NOT come out of your deposit. The none refundable pet fees were meant for deep carpet cleaning the landlord has to do after move out. Don't hesitate to ask the "littleguy". He can work anywhere in the state for you.

Full refund of deposit - excellent service
I was so relieved to get connected to Attorney Stern's firm. He took care of everything I provided detailed information and he did the rest. Thank you so much!

Helpful and courteous
I had some issues with my landlord waiting 5 months before making any claim on my security deposit, and at the end of the 5th month she decided that her claim would be for all of it. I reached out to the LGLF and they reviewed my case and provided a very courteous discussion about what my rights were and what I would need to submit to them to further my case. As I reviewed the documents they asked me to provide, I came across a point in my lease agreement that quite clearly stated they had 30 days to make a claim after I left, or they cannot make a claim against my deposit. I had read prior to this discovery the Renter's Rights law in Florida and sent it to the landlord, but I don't think she took it seriously until she saw that she had signed off on that very document. Ultimately, I did not have to move forward with the legal case as my landlord provided me with my full security deposit. However the guidance provided by the LGLF was instrumental in causing this favorable outcome. Although I signed a document indicating I would hire them for their service and could have pressed on with the case, they politely indicated that our relationship was terminated and I would not be charged anything. All in all, it was a great experience with kind and concerned people who I am sure all too often have to deal with landlords of questionable repute. I would recommend this service to anyone who has felt they have been wronged by a landlord.

landlord's unfair withholding of security deposit.
Found attorney on Google, he took plenty of time to interview me and my case. He did exactly what he said he would do, in a very timely, professional manner. There were no hidden ex landlord had no choice but to give me my intire security deposit back, plus attorneys fees.

Got full security deposit back from Landlord
Landlord failed to provide proper notification of claim on my security depost and Alex was able to settle out of court for a refund of my entire $1600 deposit. Would recommend to anyone dealing with Landlord or Property Managers whom believe they are above the law.

Fast, friendly, effective, and transparent!
I retained Alex Stern's legal services (Little Guy Law Firm) to recuperate the security deposit that my landlady had unfairly retained from me. The contract was clear enough that I could understand it and felt confident to sign. In less than a week from the time I hired him, Mr Stern compelled my landlady to return my security deposit in full. I am recommending Alex Stern and the Little Guy Law Firm to all my friends and relatives in Florida!

Amazing lawyer! Get your security deposit back
Alex Stern was a pleasure to work with. After reaching out to the Little Guy Law Firm, Alex was in contact with me in less than 24 hours and had the legal process of getting my security deposit back from my landlord started within days. Alex is very professional, knowledgeable of the law, and easy to communicate with. After just a few short weeks, I had my entire security deposit back thanks to the help from the Little Guy Law Firm. I would recommend Alex's service to anyone who is in need of legal help.
