Desk Appearance Ticket (D.A.T.)

A Desk Appearance Ticket (D.A.T.) is a written notice to appear in Court for Arraignment—where criminal defendants are formally advised of their charges and asked to enter a plea. D.A.T’s are often issued after an arrest for a Violation or Misdemeanor instead of being placed in jail. They are occasionally issued for Felonies. A D.A.T. must be taken seriously as it is not a get out of jail free card. The arraignment is only a first appearance in court, and jail time, fines, probation, community service, and more may follow.

Please contact us today at (800) 840-7858 if you need help with a Desk Appearance Ticket (D.A.T.).


Non-Payment Proceeding
A Non-Payment Proceeding is a means of evicting a tenant for not paying their rent. Landlords cannot legally evict tenants who fail to pay rent without adhering to the Non-Payment Proceedings. If you are a landlord who requires assistance moving forward with an eviction, please contact my law office today.
Evictions/Illegal Lockout
An Eviction allows Landlords the right to terminate a lease before its end date, or to remove an unauthorized tenant. However, Landlords cannot lock out or evict tenants at their volition. Eviction is part of a lengthy legal process, whereby Landlords must file the proper paperwork. I work with landlords to navigate the complex eviction process, and with tenants to ensure that grounds for eviction are sound, checking the formal process has been followed.
Holdover Proceeding
Holdover Proceedings are a complex means of evicting a tenant for reasons other than Non-Payment of Rent. This could include lease violations, unauthorized tenants, unauthorized subletting, nuisance complaints, squatting, unauthorized pets, property damage, and illegal activity. If you are a Landlord who would like to evict a Tenant for reasons other than Non-Payment, please reach out today to discuss your Landlord rights.
HP Action
Landlords must provide their Tenants with timely repairs and services, as laid out in your Lease. If a Landlord fails to uphold their responsibility, filing an HP Action will protect your Tenant rights. Landlords must provide you with a habitable residence, meaning the timely resolution of essential repairs is required. If your essential repairs have gone unresolved, an HP action will protect your tenant rights, as established by the State of New York.
