Representation of Property Management Companies in Landlord/Tenant Disputes

Worked with several property management companies to develop and implement the best strategy to meet the landlords’ goals in collecting  all past-due rent, initiating eviction proceedings and/or entering into complex settlement agreements with delinquent tenants to remain in properties, which resulted in collecting over $300,000 in past-due rent and securing punctual performance under the leases.

Dismissal of Environmental Claims Against Energy Client

Obtained dismissal of environmental claims against a client in the energy industry.

As a result, the court dismissed the causes of action with prejudice.
