Robert C Griffin - Attorney at Law

Law Office of Robert C. Griffin, Attorney at Law, serving the Chicagoland area for more than 30 years!

Landlord & Tenant

Landlord-Tenant Law Attorney | Chicago

Landlord-tenant law can be particularly complicated in Chicago, due in part to the contentious Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance, a regulation which gives powerful rights to tenants. In fact, if tenants are victorious in disputes with landlords, landlords may be required to pay the tenants’ legal fees. Thus if a landlord is lacking competent legal representation, seemingly simple evictions can wind up costing them thousands of dollars.

At the Chicago Law Office of Robert C. Griffin, Attorney at Law, we are highly knowledgeable of landlord-tenant law. We offer skilled representation to both landlords and tenants alike in legal matters involving both residential and commercial property.
