When you are involved in a landlord-tenant dispute, it is vital to your well-being that you resolve the dispute in as timely a manner as possible. Your home should be a safe haven — not a place that causes you stress. An eviction notice or other landlord problem can be resolved with help from an experienced attorney.
When To Call An Attorney
There are three instances when an attorney can help immediately. These are:
- When you receive notice of eviction
- If your landlord failed to provide you with a habitable home
- If your landlord failed to return all or a portion of your security deposit

The Chicago Residential Landlord And Tenant Ordinance (RLTO)
Most rental units in Chicago are covered by the Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance (RLTO). As an attorney who has done this kind of work since 2009, I am able to readily address any and all violations of the RLTO along with any other landlord-tenant dispute, including but not limited to:
- Rent disputes
- Ordinance violations
- Warranty of habitability
- Warranty of quiet enjoyment
- Eviction proceedings, including retaliatory evictions
- Injuries or property damage suffered as a result of structural defects
A successful lawsuit can result in attorneys' fees being paid by the defendant, recovery of damages by you the plaintiff, and reimbursement of rent and security deposit payments.
