Newsletter  Eviction
Joan N. lost her job, and fell behind in paying her rent. Her landlord sued Joan for eviction, attempting to have her and her family thrown in the street. Because of legal errors made by the landlord, our attorney was able to have the case dismissed. This enabled Joan to have sufficient time to move, and to leave without a money judgment against her record.

Her former landlord was very angry at this outcome. Two months after Joan moved to her new apartment, he filed a second eviction case. This time he was trying to have her evicted from her new apartment, an apartment over which he has no legal control!

In this second case, both the landlord and his attorney are liable for illegal misconduct. Counterclaims are being filed against them both. Stay tuned for the outcome!
