Eviction

Our Real Estate Practice Group provides compressive legal services to clients that need to recover possession from tenants or former owners. Our team of professionals will guide you through every step of the process, from beginning to end. We will evaluate your case; identify, prepare, and serve all necessary notices; initiate legal proceedings, by Writ of Possession or Eviction; and ensure that possession of your property is timely and lawfully returned to you.

We offer eviction services throughout the entire State of Ohio, and we employ a network of resources that are available to facilitate timely resolution of your case. The breadth and depth of our experience, however, will also ensure that your efforts to regain possession of your property will meet or exceed all applicable regulatory mandates, including, for example, the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Preparation and service of Three-Day Notices
  • Preparation and service of Tenancy Termination Notices
  • Issuance of Writs of Possession
  • Initiation of Forcible Entry and Detainer Actions

Our Fees

Our fees are competitive and conform to industry standards. In most instances, the following fee arrangements are available:


1. Collection matters are handled on a contingency fee basis, but an hourly option is available and sometimes requested by clients who hold large balance claims. At a clients’ request, fees for collection matters can be billed on a per item flat fee basis for letters, pleadings, motions, and executions.


2. Uncontested foreclosures and related bankruptcy and eviction matters are most often billed on a flat fee basis according to the Fannie Mae guidelines. Contested matters, and counterclaims, generally require additional flat fee or hourly billing, subject to client approval;


3. Uncontested replevin cases are also handled on a flat fee basis. If the right to recover possession is opposed, the matter is converted to an hourly fee basis, upon client approval;


4. Mechanic’s lien matters are treated the same as replevin cases, unless they involve multiple properties, or otherwise relate to unusual subject matter;


5. Our firm is also pioneering the availability and use of alternative fee arrangements (“AFA’s”) for legal services that have traditionally been billed hourly. The availability of AFA’s is a product of our firm’s ambition to deliver legal services in an efficient and cost-effective manner, and help clients more effectively forecast and contain costs. AFA’s are available for an ever expanding range of matters, including litigation defense, discovery disputes, and appellate practice.
