Unlawful Detainer

The Small Business Law Firm only represents commercial landlords and commercial tenants in landlord tenant disputes.

If you are a commercial tenant who has been served with an unlawful detainer lawsuit, there are specific procedures that must be followed to preserve your rights. Normally, you have only five short days after being served to file a responsive pleading with the court. A letter or phone call to your landlord or the court will not protect you. Small business tenants need to immediately contact an attorney to represent them or they will be evicted without further notice.

Our firm does not handle residential landlord or residential tenant matters.
