TENANTS VS. LANDLORDS: ACROSS NEW YORK CITY, TENANTS FACE INJURY AND ILLNESS DUE TO THE NEGLIGENCE OF LANDLORDS

In New York City, many people and families are forced to live in buildings where basic services and safety are lacking.  Dangerous conditions in apartments, hallways, lobbies and other places put tenants at risk, causing injuries or heartache for tenants who deserve better.


Whether it’s lead paint, falling ceilings, unsafe stairs, inadequate lighting or poor security, tenants are endangered every day across New York City.  Landlords are often rich and powerful; government agencies are frequently slow to help. We believe tenants deserve better and will fight to hold landlords accountable, winning full compensation for the harm done to you and your family.  


Recent media coverage in The New York Times shows that government often fails to protect tenants.  Landlords get away with outrageous conduct while tenants suffer. Lawyers like Steve Williamson force big landlords to pay for their bad behavior, providing tenants with protection where government falls short.  


At the Law Office of Stephen Z. Williamson, P.L.L.C., we have a proven track record of winning lawsuits and obtaining significant money damages for tenants who’ve been harmed by negligent landlords.


When we win a case and a landlord is forced to pay for the injuries they cause, it sends a strong message that tenants have an equal voice and are entitled to full and fair justice.
