Illegal Evictions

A Maryland landlord may not evict a tenant without going through the courts and having a sheriff schedule and perform an eviction.  If any of the following situations apply to you, please fill out the contact sheet at the bottom of this page to look into potential representation:

  1. Your landlord evicted you without going through court;
  2. Your landlord changed your locks or threw out your belongings without going through court; or
  3. Your landlord is threatening to throw out your belongings without scheduling a sheriff’s eviction.

Maryland law often provides for fee shifting in these types of circumstances, meaning it is may be possible to obtain legal help from the Law Offices of Joseph S. Mack without needing to pay any upfront fees.  To read more about how fee-shifting works, please click here.
