The term S.R.O. has many meanings, and it is not clear what you mean by it here. If you are referring to a Single Room Occupancy, then I do not see how this question falls into the Employment practice area. it sounds like you need an attorney who is well versed in landlord/tenant law. I would suggest you re-post this in that practice area where you will have a much larger pool of attorneys well versed in the rights of a tenant.
Good luck to you.

What you're describing is a personal injury case where the injury is an emotional component. You can hire any personal injury lawyer, but I suggest you look for someone with experience in cases involving intentional infliction of emotional distress and/or negligent infliction of emotional distress. You are also looking for a lawyer who was handled landlord tenant cases where the landlord's conduct breached duties of habitability, rights of privacy all leading to personal injuries. Use the Avvo Find a Lawyer tool. Since you present unique facts, it may take some patience on your part to find the right lawyer. Good luck.
Best to have a local personal injury lawyer investigate. Avvo has a terrific "find a lawyer" tool to find a top-rated attorney with a low contingency fee. Good luck.
