Landlord-Tenant Lawyer Serving Mobile And Baldwin Counties

Thousands of Alabama residents have discovered the value of owning commercial or residential rental property. Becoming a landlord can be a smart way to diversify an investment strategy. When you purchase rental property, however, you are effectively launching a small business — one that requires guidance from an experienced attorney who is familiar with federal and Alabama landlord-tenant laws.

The law firm of Barry A. Friedman & Associates, P.C., in Mobile represents both landlords and tenants in commercial and residential matters. We prepare commercial and residential lease or rental agreements, represent landlords and tenants in unlawful detainer, handle eviction and collection cases, and ensure that a landlord's or a tenant's rights under the Alabama Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act are protected.

Disputes with tenants can be expensive, even if there is a settlement or judgment in your favor. The best way to avoid disputes is to draft comprehensive rent or lease agreements. We can review the documents you currently use and advise you on any necessary changes.

We can represent individuals who own and rent one or more properties, as well as small and large property management companies. Attorney Joshua D. Friedman has extensive experience and a thorough knowledge of the laws that apply in this practice area.
