Our Landlord Tenant Lawyers offer a full-service landlord-tenant practice for the benefit of clients throughout the New Jersey. The relationship between a landlord and tenant is a complicated area governed by statute and case law. The New Jersey Courts are very adamant about protecting both the landlord and tenant rights and therefore require proper notices and compliance with the law in all matters.

Whether you are residential landlord or a commercial landlord whose tenant is not paying rent, or violating other lease conditions we can help you. We pride ourselves in offering quick, efficient and knowledgeable representation and understand that each day’s delay can result in lost profits and as well as other liabilities for the landlord.

Our Landlord Tenant Lawyers are also skilled trial attorneys and are experienced in going before Bergen County and other Northern New Jersey trial courts.
