Landlords v. Tenants
Toward the end of each month, attorneys receive many calls dealing with tenants facing eviction or landlords wanting to evict a tenant. The Municipal Court Committee has designed the course “What Everyone Needs to Know about Representing Landlords and Tenants in Municipal Court” to assist general practitioners, attorneys involved in commercial leases, and any attorney who has ever had a friend or relative involved in a rental situation to deal with landlord/tenant issues on Tuesday, November 27 from 1:30 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. for 3.0 hours of CLE credit.
Together Magistrate Mark A. Hummer of Franklin County Municipal Court, attorney Clement W. Pyles, and Dimitrios G. Hatzifotinos of Willis Law Firm will discuss what really happens in eviction and other landlord/tenant proceedings in Municipal Court. In addition, Magistrate Hummer individually will provide an overview of the procedures available to landlords and tenants in the court, and representing tenants will be the focus of the sole presentation of Clement Pyles during the seminar. Mr. Hatzifotinos will assert representing the landlord for his individual presentation.
Wrapping up the seminar, C. Eileen Pruett of the Small Claims and Dispute Resolution division and chair of the Municipal Court Committee will join Mr. Pyles and Mr. Hatzifotinos to explore how to keep landlords and tenants out of the court.
