The Hiring of a lawyer is an important decision to make and should not be based solely on an advertisement. Before you decide ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience. The law office of John Karl Schwartz, Jr., does not represent you unless paperwork is signed that states otherwise.
Start the process with a proper notice to pay rent or vacate. You do not need an attorney for this, however, if your tenant sees that the notice is signed by your attorney, they know that you are serious and you may not have the additional expenses of an eviction.

Why not for damages and back rent? Even if you get a judgment, the chances of receiving any money are not guaranteed. What is guaranteed Is that I will be paid in advance for the additional services. My hourly rate is $350.00 plus costs. Who's the winner? The attorney, not you. (I will proceed for damages if you insist, and you want to pay my fees and any additional costs).
As a landlord myself, I understand how you feel. You want to teach your non-paying tenants a lesson, but is it worth the time, effort and additional money?
Limit your losses by not giving your tenants additional time to pay the rent. If rent is due on the first of the month and is not paid, give them a 3 day notice to pay rent or vacate the premises as soon as possible.
I have had cases where the landlord has waited four, five or more months to start an eviction. Non-paying tenants always seem to come up with a convincing story why they do not have the money to pay the rent. Unless you intend to adopt your tenant, GET YOUR PROPERTY BACK.
