It’s a little known fact, but it’s true: virtually no law schools include substantive training on evictions. So your cousin’s nephew… The one who graduated from law school last year? Yeah – using that guy would be really bad idea! Just because an attorney is qualified to handle your eviction, doesn’t mean he will be good at it!
I know a lot of great attorneys. But I don’t know of any who know eviction as well as me. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not bragging. Those other attorneys are experts in their fields. They do what they do a lot. Likewise, I do a lot of eviction. If one of those other really good attorneys I know showed up in a Plano eviction court, I would probably run circles around them. I have the home field advantage. They’re in my house! They’re going to be strangers to the Judge. And those other attorneys likely won’t be familiar with the different procedural rules in eviction court.
Never hire a family lawyer to do an eviction. That’s like hiring a foot doctor when you need brain surgery! You need an eviction attorney. And you don’t need just any eviction attorney. You need a Plano eviction attorney.
