What does an eviction attorney do?

There are strict rules you must follow to evict a tenant successfully and legally. Failure to do so can result in a ruling against you and/or the outright dismissal of your case. An eviction attorney ensures that your documentation and paperwork is filled out correctly, filed correctly and by the mandatory deadlines, and represents your best interest in negotiations and litigation for all manner of landlord/tenant issues.

Wagner & Weeks Landlord Services also provides debt and judgment collection services. We treat both clients and debtors with respect and dignity, striving to reach a resolution with the least amount of conflict possible. We secure your property and what is owed to you.

Do I need an attorney for an unlawful detainer?

Having experienced legal counsel on your side is always a smart idea. Not only do we know and understand state and federal laws and regulations, but we are often able to secure a resolution for our clients more easily than if they try to obtain that same outcome on their own. Contact us today if:

  • Your tenant has defaulted on rent or other lease obligations
  • Your tenant has filed for bankruptcy
  • Your tenant has become a nuisance or threat to others
  • Your tenant has abandoned the premises, owing significant back rent and/or other fees
  • Your tenant causes significant physical damage to the unit and/or surrounding property
  • Your tenant threatens to bring legal action/counter-action against you

Can I afford an eviction attorney?

Wagner & Weeks Landlord Services offers reasonable rates, and provides all clients with a list of expected fees and charges so that there are no surprises later. We pride ourselves on being able to provide quality, consistent service without “nickel and diming” our clients for every little thing. Because we also handle debt and judgment collection as part of our services, you could potentially lose money by not working with an attorney.

What should I bring with me to the initial consultation?

For your first consultation, please bring:

  • A copy of the signed lease agreement
  • An itemized ledger of what is owed
  • All written correspondences with the tenant
