“Fast Track” Method
The fee for this is $900.00, which includes all attorney fees, service fees and court fees up through the Show Cause hearing. It also includes creation and service of the initial notice to the tenant.
I recommend this method when the Landlord wants the quickest possible eviction and knows that the tenant will fight the eviction or has no intention of moving out until the Sheriff shows up at the door..
I have the tenant served with the notice, create and file the Summons and Complaint, set up a Show Cause Hearing, have the Tenants served with the court papers, and represent the Landlord in the Show Cause Hearing. It can offer a significant savings over the “Piece by Piece” Method if the Tenant fights to the very end.
