  • Real estate transactions often represent a substantial investment on the part of buyers and purchasers. Careful legal advice during a real estate transaction may help protect you against future financial and legal liability and avoid future legal headaches. When disputes do arise and cannot be resolved through mediation, settlement or arbitration, litigation may be necessary.


Administrative Hearings

Landlord Tenant

  • Landlords and tenants often run into trouble when they take action without first understanding their rights and obligations. Landlords cannot evict someone, turn off utilities, or enter an apartment without first following proper procedures for doing so under the law. Just as tenants cannot withhold rent, change the locks on their apartment door, or ignore their rental agreement simply because their landlord fails to repair broken appliances, refund a security deposit, or open community recreational facilities.

At KLA, Inc., we advise and represent both landlords and tenants in cases involving evictions, rent payment, habitability, lease enforcement and other disputes involving rental property.
