Diligent lawyer reviews leases to ensure fairness

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted lease agreement that enumerates all rental terms. We discuss the particulars of a property and its occupancy and ensure that your lease covers all aspects of your rental agreement. We want you to feel confident that the agreement you sign is in compliance with New York law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Experienced litigator protects tenants’ rights to security deposits

New York law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits paid by tenants. If your landlord fails to follow these regulations, we can help you collect what is due to you. We will first pursue the most cost-effective route of obtaining payment from your landlord but will assertively defend your rights in court when necessary.

Proven advocate protects tenants’ rights to security deposits

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we can help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, we will protect your right to remain in your home.
