About me

I am an attorney who has specialized in representing tenants since 1992. Many tenants are not aware of their rights when their landlords attempt to raise their rent, evict them, or violate their rights. My law firm helps tenants learn about and make use of their legal rights

    The answer of Mr. Driscoll that I read on a business litigation matter was superlative. It was accurate, analytic and customized to the needs of the Avvo asker. These are exactly the qualities that every client would look for when hiring an attorney. Landlord Tenant law has very few happy clients and following tenant instructions often results in delays and extra expense. I would not be personally deterred by some of the client reviews until I knew both sides of the story.
