Our Representation | New York Tenant Rights Attorney

We believe in preparation. We prepare our clients for court and lead them through each process of their case. We explain our clients' legal circumstances and options in plain language. You need information to make a good decision. We place a very high priority on explaining matters to our clients.

"We work closely with tenant advocacy organizations and elected officials to promote the larger interests of the New York City tenant community. There are more than a million rent-stabilized and rent-controlled apartments in the city and hundreds of thousands of apartments under other forms of rent regulation. They represent a strong political force that we work strongly to benefit." - The attorneys of Himmelstein, McConnell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph LLP

Typically, the attorney who takes your case will remain the lead attorney until the case ends, unless you decide otherwise. He or she will represent you at your advocacy court and other appearances, and in any negotiations.
