Legal aid has not called me back. I heard from the neighborhood group that there is a case open with the building inspector. I left a message for the building inspector. There is something fishy going on here and I need someone to help me on this.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 16 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012 and 2013. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me.

I don't sdee a question here. Please post more details. Have you been served with any papers? What do you mean by "Landlord is trying to illegally evict me"? What has the building inspector have to do with an eviction?
