Landlord-Tenant Lawyer

Landlord-tenant disputes are usually related to non-payment of rent. In Chicago and Cook County, the laws regarding what a landlord can do to evict a tenant are very specific. If your tenant isn't paying or is violating the lease, or if you just need them to move out for any other reason, you should contact an attorney at Villalobos and Associates. We have extensive experience in landlord-tenant disputes that occur for a variety of reasons. We’ll provide the guidance and representation you need.

We take eviction cases very seriously. Evictions can be an emotionally-charged process. On one hand, a landlord needs a reason to evict a tenant. For example, a landlord may begin eviction if a tenant hasn’t paid rent, or is damaging or neglecting the property. On the other hand, a tenant who doesn't have the money to pay rent often doesn't have resources to move out and may try to delay the case as long as possible. Therefore, you need an eviction lawyer that understands and respects this difficult situation. That’s where we come in. You can trust Villalobos and Associates if you need a landlord-tenant lawyer for any reason.

Order of Protection Attorney

Order of protection/stalking no contact order cases are very serious and can have long-lasting effects long after they are finished. Because these cases often involve people who know or are related to each other, there is always the possibility that the parties will keep seeing each other and violate any orders of protection entered by the court, which can result in criminal charges. In addition, having an order of protection entered against you may cause consequences such as losing your right to own or possess firearms and being restricted from going to certain public locations. Our attorneys have handled and won countless trials for orders of protection and understand what judges look for when deciding these cases. For that reason, it is extremely important to have an attorney who is experienced in handling these sensitive and complicated matters to deal with your order of protection case.

Breach of Contract Attorney

Whenever someone violates a legally binding agreement, they’ve broken a contract. These cases can vary from extremely simple to extremely complex. However, interpreting a contract nearly always requires a lawyer. Therefore, a breach of contract can be an extremely technical area of law depending on the contract. As a result, if someone has tried to cheat you, it’s a good idea to hire an attorney. The law provides for certain legal remedies that a breach of contract attorney can use to remedy your situation. For example, a landlord-tenant lawyer is a specific kind of breach of contract attorney that deals with disputes between landlords and tenants. However, not all contracts are this simple. For example, if you operate your own business and a client or vendor doesn’t hold up their end of a bargain, a breach of contract attorney will need to settle the dispute for you.
