Landlord and Tenant Law

My extensive experience in landlord and tenant laws allows me to provide sound legal advice to my clients. I advise landlords and tenants on their rights and obligations, including late rent and damage repair. My firm has also successfully dealt with issues concerning the condition of property, leases, and pets. Disputes concerning security deposits are common and a significant part of my law practice. Contact me today if you have any questions regarding your lease agreement.

Real Estate

My firm represents both residential and commercial clients in proceedings and transactions involving real property and the attached structures This could include:

  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Construction
  • Financing such a mortgages
  • Lease agreements
  • Title examinations or quiet title actions
  • Closings
  • Property management

I use my extensive experience in landlord-tenant law to inform and enhance my real estate practice. If a tenant is staying on the property that is subject of a transaction, I use my expertise to make sure the real estate deal is handled correctly. I also draft and/or review leases. My clients can be sure they know what they are getting into when they sign on the dotted line of a lease.

Employment Law

Employment law covers such things as how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. I stand up for the rights of people who are discriminated against at the workplace on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident you have rights. My firm aggressively pursues your right to compensation. I represent clients injured by motor vehicle accidents, defective products, "slip and falls" on someone else's property, or even food poisoning at a restaurant.
