An eviction is a legal proceeding by which a landlord seeks to reclaim a premise (apartment or home) and remove the tenant. At the Helsper, McCarty and Rasmussen Law Firm, we represent landlords, property managers and owner’s agents in litigation to enforce the lessor’s rights under a residential or commercial lease. Our experienced legal team can also provide advice regarding the tenant screening process, notices of unpaid rent, the service of process and the terms of their lease forms.
