Finding a good Eviction Attorney

If you are searching for a good landlord attorney, first ask your family attorney (if you have one) for a referral. Then ask a local real estate rental office or property management company who they recommend.
My favorite and most reliable way to find the right eviction attorney is to go to your local courthouse during a landlord - tenant court session and sit there listening to the cases. Watch the performance of the attorneys. (It may take an hour or two, but the time spent will be well worth it.) Then just choose one of the attorneys who auditioned for you.
Beware of high priced con men who charge by the minute!

If you are going to interview eviction attorneys, I suggest you ask a few key questions.

  1. Are evictions your specialty?
  2. How many do you usually do a month?
  3. How long does the average eviction take from beginning to end?
  4. How fast can we have these tenants in court?
An "on the ball" eviction attorney will have the answers to these questions on the spot. Pay attention to # 4- because that should be an easy one to answer if the attorney is familiar with the Landlord Tenant Court schedule.-
