Law offices of Gary J. Wachtel, Esq.
Landlord and tenant law comprises a large portion of Mr. Wachtel’s practice, as he provides comprehensive services in this area beyond what is offered by many other landlord and tenant lawyers in the area. A tenant’s need to make emergency application to the court by Order to Show Cause can and is frequently accomplished.
Landlord and tenant law in New York State is driven by both legislation and case law, with the law constantly evolving into complicated rules and procedures that often invoke other, interrelated areas of law. Litigation in this field is complex, and the administrative procedures, filing limitations, evidentiary requirements and other procedural demands can be confusing without the skilled guidance of a practiced lawyer whose practice emphasizes landlord and tenant law.

Alabama elder law attorney John Watts was interviewed by Davis Nelson, a noted VA accredited attorney in Atlanta, Georgia.
The interview covers what the VA pension (aid & attendance) provides and how a veteran (or surviving spouse) qualifies for this remarkable benefit that can pay up to ,000 a year tax free to help to pay for long term care at home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home.
The requirements are discussed as well as some of the objections that some have to using this benefit.
You can reach us at our main number of 205-879-2447 or you can call Susan, our VA specialist, directly at 205-206-9400 to learn about qualifying for this benefit.
Please note this is NOT for service related injuries or diseases — instead this is for NON SERVICE related injuries or diseases. You served in the military during a time of war (no need to be in combat or go overseaas) and now you are suffering from arthritis, parkinsons, dementia, a non military injury, etc. that makes it hard to take care of yourself. That’s what this benefit is for and if you live in Alabama we will be happy to talk you through your options.
Thanks and have a great day!
Serving all of Alabama
