You can forget about finding a lawyer to take on this type of case on a "contingency" basis. Lawyer love to take easy cases involving large sums of money on a 30% or higher contingency. That is why there are so many ambulance chasers and injury lawyers advertising their services. LL/T disputes are neither easy nor simple. Sure you can hire a lawyer for what you describe, but you'd have to pony up the $$$ in advance.

: I was illegally evicted from my Brooklyn apartment in mid Sept., after I had signed a stipulation to vacate at the END of the month (Sept). My LL took it upon himself to throw all of my things out in the middle of the month. He says I abandoned the apartment and left the door open. NOT! I have 5 witnesses (neighbors) that are willing to testify that my door was not left unlocked, and that they saw him put all of my belongings in the trash. I filed a police report and filed an OTC, the judge directed me to sue in Civil Court, since I had already found a new place to live. I put a claim thru my insurance company for the property damage, but am not covered...Please, Please if any knows a good civil court lawyer willing to work on contingency, please let me know. THANKS!
