Practice Area: Landlord / Tenant
Date: February 13, 2015
Outcome: Dismissal

Clients came to our office after I had already left. My assistant called me and due to the urgency of the matter I turned around and drove back to the office. Clients had been served with a Summons because their landlord was trying to evict them. Landlord had been receiving rent and clients had receipts. Landlord wanted them out right away because she wanted to make upgrades to the property. After informing client of his rights, we prepared and filed (next day) his Answer to the Eviction complaint. Two days later we received a fax from opposing counsel that they were going to dismiss the case. Clients were grateful that they were able to remain in their home that they had been paying rent for.
