Solving Legal Issues for
Property Owners & Their Tenants

We provide full service to both landlords and tenants alike, helping to address:

  • Draft rental leases

  • Resolve landlord-tenant disputes

  • Evict irresponsible or nonpaying tenants

  • Successfully defend against unjust evictions

  • Demand return of security deposits that have been unfairly held

  • Collect from nonpaying tenants

  • Uphold tenants’ rights against discrimination

  • Help landlords maintain the integrity and profitability of their properties

Drafting Solid Leases for Property Owners

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. We discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with Pennsylvania law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting Tenants' Rights to Security Deposits

Pennsylvania law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, we can help you to collect what is due to you. We first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, we will assertively defend your rights in court.

Resolving an Eviction Crisis

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, we protect your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, we help you to protect your property and your business.

Don’t Give Up Your Rights.

We aim to avoid potential problems for both landlords and tenants by ensuring accurate contracts are in place to protect both parties before a commitment is made. Call 570-820-9800 or fill out the contact form below for a free telephone consultation with one of our attorneys.
