Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. prepared the petition to begin eviction proceedings.
The landlord had not expected any problems with vacating the free market tenants from the building and he was informed that it could take several months to have an eviction. He was also informed that a judge could add on time for the tenant to vacate even after a win at trial.
When speaking to the building’s staff about how to make sure Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. perfected service of the petition, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. learned that the tenant ran a prostitution ring, using women from other countries to service her clientele.
