Landlord Representation

As a landlord, it is important to properly notify a tenant of their eviction. Even if you have proper grounds for an eviction, proper notice is typically required. Our firm is pleased to provide comprehensive representation throughout the eviction process, including eviction notices, court appearances and dealing with the sheriff when a rental unit must be opened or personal items must be removed from the premises.

Tenant Representation

As a tenant, you have rights. As a general rule, your landlord must provide adequate notice prior to any eviction. If you need to speak with a lawyer about an eviction notice you have received or an upcoming hearing, we encourage you to contact our law office immediately
