We are a full service law office. We give legal advice and counseling on a wide variety of legal subjects. We also litigate cases that require it. The office supplies speakers to various student groups that have an interest in legal issues. Those tasks also require that we engage in legal research and continuing legal education.
We do not represent students against the university and we cannot advise one student directly against another student in a civil law matter.
If you suffer a loss from an unexpected event in your apartment; such as a fire or theft, you may not be compensated. Your landlord is not responsible for any loss you suffer unless they caused the loss. If you have renters insurance, you will be assured of a more timely replacement of your essential personal property. And it's cheap!
It is almost the end of the semester and Summer is on it's way (really!). Many students will be trying to sublet their apartments. Be careful! You need to know who you are subletting to. Ask for proof of identity and get a permanent address for them. Ask for references as well. Make sure their first payment clears the bank before you spend it. Finally, NEVER CASH A CHECK FOR MORE THAN THEY OWE YOU AND AGREE TO SEND THE PERSON BACK THE BALANCE! It is a scam and you will owe that money to your bank when their check is eventually not honored.
