Under what basis did your lawyer state he was entering your apartment with a police officer?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

She told my partner who was in the apartment that it was for a water leak "inspection" but went straight to my bedroom to go through my nightstand. She also was inept to bring up my ex business partner in the conversation, who is a friend of hers, saying that my partner was going to sue me for a lot of money. So she then told the cop or security guard to arrest him. She then called me at the office and told me that there was an emergency at home, as a water leak was going to damage my things. I told her since I paid her three times as much rent for a corporate apartment and since she had a key that she needed to handle it. I went straight to her office upon returning from work and she told me that she had received an anonymous call saying there were drugs in the apartment and that is why she entered. She had me arrested on the spot. It is very obvious about the violations but I just do not know what to do. Thank you.

You mean your landlord? Did she evict you for engaging in criminal activity on the premises?

Yes
Lawyer: D. WINOGO ESQ., Attorney replied 8 years ago
You may sue the landlord for unlawful detainer, since she had no right to enter your apartment and as such, violated your right to quiet enjoyment of the property.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
