Working together, our legal team was able to protect this woman from eviction, ensuring she had the time she needed to complete the process for CARES Act funds. Our staff attorney, Tiffany Norris, was able to negotiate with the landlord and the court to give Leyah more time to complete the CARES Act application, receive her funds, and pay the rent she owed to her landlord. She says, “As an attorney, I’m able to be a voice for my client who otherwise may be afraid to speak in intimidating situations, such as facing possible eviction from their landlord.” By ensuring the case was dismissed with prejudice, Norris made sure the landlord cannot re-sue Leyah for rent and possession in the future on the same case, and so that she is less at risk of future eviction.
