Real Estate Law > Residential Landlord/Tenant

Landlord and tenant law comprises a large portion of our firm's practice, as we provide comprehensive services in this area beyond what is offered by many other landlord and tenant lawyers in the area. Our broad range of services in landlord and tenant litigation includes such services as lease, contract and statutory rights enforcement and preventing the forfeiture or loss of a tenant's home or business premises. A tenant's need to make emergency application to the court by Order to Show Cause can and is frequently accomplished.

Landlord and tenant law in New York State is driven by both legislation and case law, with the law constantly evolving into complicated rules and procedures that often invoke other, interrelated areas of law. Litigation in this field is complex, and the administrative procedures, filing limitations, evidentiary requirements and other procedural demands can be confusing without the skilled guidance of a practiced lawyer whose practice emphasizes landlord and tenant law.
