Practice Areas

In a perfect world, every landlord will make necessary repairs, never prematurely terminate your tenancy, illegally lock you out of your apartment and never start a holdover proceeding to evict you. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

When served with either a holdover termination notices or court papers summoning you to court, you need to immediately contact an experienced tenant defense attorney. Too often decent people and honest law-abiding tenant get infected with an insidious disease of dreaming and hoping that a problem will miraculously resolve itself on its own, when in fact housing court eviction cases rarely work themselves out so simply.

Do not wait until the situation worsens – act now and call Gordo Legal.
