Evictions-Land Lord & Tenant

We prosecute and defend evictions.  As a landlord seeking to evict a tenant, it is important to contact an attorney early.  Depending on the reason for the eviction, your attorney will need to serve and file papers within certain time frames.  If the service is done incorrectly, or is not completed in the correct time period, your eviction might be unsuccessful, and you may have to start over. 

As a tenant who has recieved a notice for eviction, you may wish to consult with an attorney to explore what defenses you may have.

In New York State, evictions are handled by justice courts, and are summary proceedings.  This means they will be heard and decided by the Courts quickly.
