I would look up the laws & talk to the court. My experience in 1 county in New Jersey was horrendous. These were attorneys. Attorney #1: Why don't you just move & not pay the guy. Well it has turned into a nightmare. This guy claimed to own a couple of rental properties himself & was serious. He suggested another attorney to sue the landlord under the Consumer Credit Act for misrepresentation. Attorney #2: The referral. This is after court appearance. for nonpayment of rent: a) I should have spoken to an attorney before I went to court. We could have called tons of witnesses, etc. Never mentioned appealing. Or it was too expensive. Then regarding suing him under the Consumer Credit Act -- assured me that I didn't have a leg to stand on because the landlord had gotten a judgment. This still remains to be seen.

Point is -- some of them are (to put it nicely) overly enthusiastic for whatever reason & do not see the points of law involved at all.

One thing I was told by a judge in anoth
