Landlord/Tenant matters – Representing Landlords

Are you Seeking to evict a tenant? Mr. Pastacaldi represents landlords in this area of the law. In this day and age, it is difficult to be a landlord. Whether it is trying to collect rent or responding to tenant complaints, the strain of these obligations sometimes discourages individuals from owning income producing properties. Nonetheless, a landlord has a legal recourse to deal with non-complaint tenants. If you have such a problem, call Mr. Pastacaldi for a consultation.

He will defend you in the Superior Court of New Jersey when the DYFS seeks to restrict or, in extreme cases, to terminate your parental rights. Should your family become involved in a DYFS matter, you need experienced representation in this area. Call Mr. Pastacaldi to ensure your parental rights are being protected.


 Restraining Order Defense

Has someone filed a temporary restraining order against you? It is imperative you retain an attorney to defend you in court in a final restraining order hearing. The time frame in these matters is relatively short, and a final hearing is often scheduled within weeks of the filing of the temporary restraining order; therefore, there is no time to delay in retaining an attorney.  This is why you should retain an experienced and diligent trial attorney to defend you. Mr. Pastacaldi is such an attorney who will vigorously defend you in such matters and ensure your rights are protected. This means collecting evidence and organizing your defense in an expeditious manner.



Have you recently been rejected from a job due to a background check? You may be able to seal your criminal record in New Jersey to prevent it from being used against you. Expungement law in New Jersey is complicated, and whether you can seal your record will depend on the type of crime your seeking to expunge, the time that has passed, and the overall extent of your criminal record. New Jersey law is favorable in this regard, and you should call Mr. Pastacaldi to discuss your specific circumstances to see if you qualify for expungement in New Jersey.
