Have You Received A Summons And Complaint?

If you have received a summons and complaint for an eviction lawsuit (called an unlawful detainer ), you must respond by filing the proper papers with the court within five calendar days, including weekends. Attorney James Coy Driscoll can take immediate action to protect your rights, but you must act quickly to protect your home. Call us at (415) 523-5591 to discuss your situation as soon as you receive a summons and complaint eviction notice.

What Does A Notice To Quit/Notice Of Termination Of Tenancy Mean?

If you have received a three-, 30-, or 60-day notice asking you to move out, you should immediately contact us. We will carefully examine all aspects of the situation, including the legality of the eviction process and the landlord's behavior.

Timing Is Critical — Act Fast

Whatever your matter or dispute, the sooner we get going, the faster we can build a good case on your behalf. We have helped hundreds of clients retain legal occupancy of their homes. We may be able to obtain a sizable financial settlement for you if you do have to move. There is no guarantee as to your results. You should hire a skillful attorney to represent your interests in any settlement discussions.

Every tenant has rights that are protected under the law, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that your rights are protected.
