Are You a Landlord Dealing With a Tenant or Leasing Issue? If So, Contact a New Jersey Landlord Attorney Today.

We represent only landlords in eviction matters.

Christopher J. Hanlon, Esq.

Tenancy law is a minefield in New Jersey. It demands strict compliance and traps the inexperienced landlord with punitive and oppressive consequences.

Registration and notice requirements, prohibitions against certain types of rental practices, security deposit regulations, municipal and state building, fire, zoning and code compliance laws and ordinances all unite to place you at risk for claims by tenants or a municipality.

Hanlon Niemann & Wright is a firm with a statewide landlord/tenant practice. Every week we’re appearing somewhere in the Superior Court(s) of New Jersey representing our many clients in matters of eviction, habitability claims, discrimination and lease violations.

Actual Client Testimonial

I own several small businesses. I’m good at what I do but legal matters and dealing with lawyers and legal issues is stressful. I called Hanlon Niemann and have developed a great relationship with their lawyers and staff. They have reviewed my leases, negotiated the buyout of my former business partner, handled land use problems in a neighboring county and generally have really been there for me. I really like them personally and professionally. If you are a small business owner, give them a call.
