Experienced lawyer helps with evictions

Eviction is disruptive to both landlords and tenants. Landlords must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must find a new place to live under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, a skilled attorney can help you seek to resolve disputes when eviction is threatened. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, an protect your right to remain in your home by asserting the terms of your lease. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, I help you to protect your property.

Reliable counsel for alternative dispute resolution

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to handle your real estate dispute outside of court. Alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration are options to consider. Some contracts require binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation to resolve disputes that arise out of the transaction governed by the agreement. When the cost and time of litigation exceeds the likely outcome, you may choose to settle instead because it is more practical and makes more sense. We will offer advice and advocacy in order to help move the proceedings toward a desirable outcome.
