When all members of Alina’s* household lost their jobs because of of COVID-19, Alina was left as the sole breadwinner. Unfortunately, her sole income was not enough to provide for her family and make rent payments. Alina came to us for legal assistance after her landlord filed an eviction complaint and a claim for $8,000 of un-paid rent.
Alina was facing an eviction while taking care of her mother, sister, and two nieces. The consequences could be disastrous for her and her family. After carefully studying the details of the case and assisting Alina in Court, we were finally able to negotiate a settlement with her landlord.
Why it Matters
In the end, the landlord forgave Alina’s debt. Alina and her family were able to be transitioned into a new place and a crisis was averted. The results achieved will allow Alina and her family a chance to get back on their feet and have a new start.
