Lawrence A. Mudgett III, Esq. with Safer Law helped me terminate a lease after being ignored by the leasing office even though it was my legal right to terminate the contract and had proper documentation. He was very candid about the process and explained why they were most likely ignoring me. He made sure to get me out without complicating matters, and he had my best interest in mind. Whenever I had doubts about how to deal with the leasing office, he was there to answer my questions and guided me through the process. He was very thorough and clear in serving the leasing office, and they immediately fell in line with the law. I highly recommend Mr. Mudgett III, Esq. as a lawyer.

I went to Lawrence when I was down on my luck. I had no money, no job, and in debt. With Lawrence’s help I was able to get back up on my feet. Now I have a second chance at life and I’m currently buying a new home.

Gadiel D.

Helped give me advice on my tenant rights and how to navigate issues with my landlord. He called me back very fast and was easy to talk to. Thank you!

Camille H.

Very efficient. It was easy to get a hold of him the whole time through the entire process. He stayed within the quoted estimate too. Reasonable cost. I had heard bad stories about evicting people but it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Thanks Lawrence. Hope I don’t need to use you again, but if I do, I will.
