Oftentimes, disputes between a landlord and tenant can be resolved among the parties, without having to go through the expense and hassle of hiring an attorney. However, things don’t always go as they should. When it comes time to hand over the reins, Kearney, McWilliams & Davis, PLLC has the attorney horsepower to help resolve your dispute.
Many landlord tenant agreements have provisions that specify alternative dispute resolution as opposed to costly litigation. If not, then jurisdiction will lie exclusively with the Justice of the Peace courts, appealed de novo into the County Courts at Law. Whether you are the landlord or the tenant, it is important to find a law firm with experience that's comfortable in court appearances, mediations, and arbitrations. Finding a firm with a strong real estate and commercial property transactions and negotiations practice is even more valuable.
