Eviction Proceedings
Whether you are the tenant or the landlord, the eviction process is addressed by New York’s statutes and case law and if not followed correctly, may result in damages or undesired outcomes.

Suing a Contractor or Homeowner
Many homeowners retain the services of contractors to perform services in and around their properties. While most contractors conduct their business in a professional manner, some contractors don’t hold up to standards of reasonable work and as a homeowner, knowing your litigation options is paramount to obtaining a resolution. Don’t get burned by a fraudulent or unscrupulous contractor! Reviewing home improvement contracts in advance with an attorney is recommended. Likewise reputable contractors may face unfair complaints to consumer affairs or need to peruse unpaid claims.

Negligence & Malpractice
In both business and personal environs we hear about negligence. Often the subject of court decisions and trials, professional malpractice and negligence cases are present in almost every industry including architects, engineers, and other professionals.
