Role of Housing Court Attorneys

Court Attorneys in Landlord Tenant Proceedings

Court Attorneys play a significant role in landlord tenant proceedings where the Respondent is not represented by counsel.  In the interest of judicial economy, landlord tenant cases are only sent before the judge for conference after settlement options have been exhausted.  The Court effectuates this by requiring all eviction cases with pro se litigants to conference the facts of their case with the Court Attorney.

It is important to understand that the court attorney has no authority to make a ruling in a landlord tenant case or force any party to agree to terms that they find to be unsatisfactory.  Every litigant is still entitled to their opportunity to be heard by the presiding judge.  If an agreement is not reached after conference with the court attorney, the case will ultimately be sent to trial.
