Gise and Abreu Successfully Conclude Pro Bono Matter on Landlord’s BehalfFebruary 6, 2020 |
David Gise and Jennifer Abreu brought a matter they handled pro bono for The Safe Center LI to a successful conclusion. The Safe Center helps victims of domestic and dating abuse, rape, sexual assault and human trafficking by offering them crisis intervention, emergency safe housing, counseling and legal representation.
An owner of a multifamily home rented a second-floor apartment to a man who was subsequently arrested on criminal charges. The Safe Center enlisted our firm’s help to evict the tenant and his co-tenants, all of whom had stopped paying rent on their month-to-month lease.
Gise and Abreu successfully terminated the tenancy and started a holdover proceeding in Nassau District Court. Despite the tenants’ attempted delays, the attorneys made sure the tenants vacated the apartment, thanks to a surrender-of-possession, which Abreu negotiated.
