after eviction landlord kept a lot of my stuff in the amount of $40000. he decline to return anything. at this point i need an attorney not for settlement but to get in court and win the case!
Part of this likely depends on whether you are dealing with a commercial vs. residential lease and things that could be considered fixtures. That said, if the landlord did - indeed - keep your property that is worth $40,000, then you can pursue a claim for conversion or civil theft.
My response to this question is a response to a hypothetical situation based on limited facts. I am not your attorney; you are not my client and we do not have an attorney-client relationship. If you need a lawyer, you should contact one in your area. If you would like to talk with me about your case, you can call my office.
