When you use the term "righting a wrong" you either mean
putting yourself back into the same apartment, in the same
condition without any lost time, or sickness. Or you are
meaning some form of punsishment or apology.
Having moved several time, and sort of dis-shuffeled you
probably don't have all the facts in order. The attorney or
youself will have to be prepared as the defense will look to
you for proof of some tort. Not having the necessary
information can bring on litigation upon yourself that the
landlord won't have to include any of your circumstances. A
defense firm will go to great lenghts to wear you down.
They get paid will you wait, and continue to file more and
Find the best attorney that will listen to your case, and be
as prepared as if you were presenting it to the court
youself. Try two or three attorneys to get a feel for your
case. I have found most of all of them well paid and
overworked. They would love to help, but you may find
youself doing most of the leg work. I have dealt with a
firm in Houston and found that there are so many cases in
Texas, you have to push yours in front of the rest.
Don't fault the attorney for lining his pocket, as if you go
on a contingency fee basis, your pocket will probably get
filled more than his will.
