Courthouse Settlements

Often cases settle at the courthouse and those settlements are often memorialized in a confession of judgment or lease amendment.  If the confession of judgment or lease amendment does not result in the outcome predicted by the settlement, there is no additional charge to evict the tenant when you purchase "Complete Summary Ejectment Representation."

TENANT AND OTHER REPRESENTATION 

My fees range from $95 to $195 per hour for individuals. I use the U.S. Federal Poverty Guideline for 2019, to determine the amount per hour you will be charged based on the amount you earn and the number of people in your family.  This is a sliding scale fee structure.  I also negotiate flat fee agreements for representation.
