Landlord and Tenant

Evictions and Eviction Defense, Personal Injury, and Commercial Lease Negotiations

We pursue and defend commercial and residential evictions, referred to in Alabama as "Unlawful Detainer". Time moves very quickly in these cases and it is very important to have an attorney who can stay right on top of the case. We also pursue and defend "Ejectment" cases, necessary when a mortgagor unlawfully holds foreclosed property refuses to vacate, and in some Bond for Title (also sometimes referred to as "contract for deed") cases. Personal injury due to a latent defect on a rented premises is a difficult case to pursue, but we do selectively take these cases, usually where a tenant has been injured by exposure to fraudulently concealed mold. Commercial lease negotiation, evictions, commercial eviction defense, and even settlement of broken leases is a large portion of our practice. The smartest thing to do, especially if you are opening a new business, is to have an attorney thoroughly review your new commercial lease to prevent possible problems in the future. Call us today for a 1/2 off consultation for you commercial lease needs. (334) 315-9399.
