An Effective Landlord-Tenant Attorney

Resolving legal disputes between property owners and tenants throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens

As an experienced attorney, I create solutions for both landlords and tenants. I represent landlords in both nonpayment and holdover proceedings. I also protect the rights of tenants when landlords fail to comply with their lease obligations. For 36 years, I have used my substantial knowledge in real estate, leases and property rights to assist Nassau, Suffolk and Queens area clients:

  • Evict nonpaying tenants and those in default of their lease obligations
  • Collect from nonpaying tenants
  • Successfully uphold the rights of tenants
  • Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
  • Draft rental leases
  • Demand the return of security deposits that have been unfairly withheld
  • Help landlords maintain the integrity and profitability of their properties

Drafting comprehensive leases for property owners

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. I discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy, and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with New York law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting tenants’ rights to security deposits

New York law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, I can help you to collect what is due to you. I first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, my firm assertively defends your rights in court.

Resolving eviction disputes

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fail to pay rent, and displaced families must locate new homes under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, I help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, I will institute eviction proceedings to cause their removal from your property. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, I will protect your right to remain in your home.
