Eviction

Representing Landlords, Investors, and Property Managers in Residential and Commercial Evictions. As a solo practitioner, I strive to offer my clients personal and prompt attention. When you call my office you will speak directly with me. As evictions are time sensitive, I work hard to get your case filed quickly and to keep you updated on the case status.
