A Tenant Should Consider Hiring a Lawyer Before Appearing in Court

by | Aug 15, 2023 | Landlord-Tenant |

As a tenant, appearing in court for an eviction can be an overwhelming process, even for the most experienced litigant.

If you are a tenant who has been served with an eviction notice or an eviction petition directing you to appear in court, you should consider retaining an attorney before going to the courthouse.

There are many potential consequences if you are being evicted; you may be displaced from your home or place of business, may have a money judgment entered against you and your “record” may reflect an eviction.

Retaining an experienced tenant attorney such as the Law Office of Bradley D. Schnur, Esq. P.C. before entering the courthouse is beneficial as we can neutralize an aggressive landlord or landlord’s attorney, navigate through the legal process, review the court papers for errors and defects and in those appropriate situations, negotiate a resolution of the underlying claims.

Please contact us in our office at (516) 932-4400 or (914) 363-6250 to discuss your particular situation and how we can be of assistance to you.
