Elizabeth, NJ asked in Consumer Law, Real Estate Law and Landlord - Tenant for New Jersey

Q: Hello, I'd like to know if there are any sliding scale legal services I can use if I do not qualify for legal aid?

I'm being sued for not submitting a written notice of move out at the end of my lease. Any information on sliding scale or income adjusted legal services/representation specializing in landlord/tenant cases would be very much appreciated! Thank you.

A: Different attorneys have different fees. You get what you pay for. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
