Landlord-Tenant Disputes

No matter which side you are on, a landlord-tenant dispute can be expensive and emotionally draining. Even if the lease is carefully drafted, an issue might arise that isn't addressed in the document, or is addressed in a vague and confusing manner.

At Moghul Law PLLC, we understand the complexities of lease agreements and where problems are likely to occur. We also know how to assist each of our clients in asserting their rights under the agreement or under the law generally. If the value of your claim is $1,000 or more, our attorneys could be invaluable to your case.
