My Girlfriend was evicted from her apartment in Phoenix a

Customer Question

My Girlfriend was evicted from her apartment in Phoenix a couple of years ago. She has now received bills from the property management company that are equal to 6 months rent. Is this something she could discuss and get knocked down to the standard lease breakage fees. This would be approx $2500 however they are billing her almost $10K
What type of lawyer would be able to help with this situation. I want to help her however I am not going to pay 10K when I know they most likely re-rented the apartment shortly after she left. We live in Las Vegas now.
