Landlord and Tenant

Whether you are a landlord who needs to evict your tenant, or are a tenant whose landlord violating the terms of your lease agreement, JLG’s attorneys have experience in resolving landlord-tenant disputes. Our firm represents landlords and tenants in a wide variety of disputes.


Types of Litigation


Two main forms of litigation arise between landlords and tenants: holdovers, when tenants overstay or breach their lease, and non-pay, when tenants refuse to pay their bills. When these forms of litigation arrive, they are decided before district courts in rapid proceedings. Our lawyers know the pitfalls of the landlord-tenant practice, and we will help guide you through these technical proceedings.


For landlords, JLG will ensure that you comply with New York State’s strict guidelines during court. Since the burden of proof falls upon the landlord for evicting non-compliant tenants, we will help you to amass the strongest evidence possible and help you to draft and serve the correct notice of petition.


Tenants, on the other hand, are accorded more leniency by the court than landlords. If your landlord is violating your lease agreement or seeking to evict you, JLG will raise the appropriate defense to any action commenced. Specifically, we can prove a landlord’s breach of your warranty of habitability and seek abatement of your rent.


We can also help you to settle disputes that arise from:

  • Property repairs

  • Lease violation
