A: You need a PI attorney. You also need to establish some kind of serious personal injury. Otherwise, there is nothing for which to recover damages. If this is just an issue of mold, no damages, then you need a landlord-tenant attorney. Your mother may be able to withhold rent due to violation of the warranty of habitability.

A: A personal injury attorney with solid knowledge of environmental law and, preferably, with relevant experience in toxic exposure cases is the legal professional you are looking for. Nevertheless, you should be aware that unless your mother developed a serious health issue as a consequence of mold exposure, pursuing a case will be extremely difficult, if not impossible. If, however, you do not intend to seek compensation for a personal injury, a landlord-tenant lawyer will be able to assist you with issues or disputes concerning mold exposure.
