Eviction Avoided for Client with Mental Illness

A single mother with mental illness called emergency services on herself during a manic episode to prevent self harm. Her landlord then served her with an eviction notice, claiming that police being called to the apartment was a substantial violation of the lease. A CPLP volunteer attorney stopped this wrongful eviction and negotiated a mutual rescission of the lease. The tenant and her son moved in with family in order to stabilize her mental health.
