Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas Attorney Represents Clients Dealing with Self-Help Evictions
Self-help evictions are rare, but the economic damage inflicted by the coronavirus appears to have escalated the threat. Stuart Campbell, a Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas attorney said he’s had three clients dealing with self-help evictions the last couple weeks; he had two self-help eviction cases in the previous two and a half years. In Atlanta, a housing attorney who typically sees two to three self-help evictions a month is now getting three to four a week. Attorneys general in Rhode Island and Massachusetts have instructed law enforcement officials to be on the lookout for self-help evictions.
