Law Office of Richard Cahan

“Richard is the best landlord/tenant attorney in Austin, TX. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the minutia involved in the Texas Property Code. He helped me remedy issues I was having with an unscrupulous landlord in the Austin Area. Place was filled with roaches, reeked of sewage, & more.

With Richard’s help, I was able to execute the repairs & move on with my life instead of dealing with the malicious landlord! Highly recommend him. Super kind & overwhelmingly helpful.”Hays S.

“I recently had an issue where I unintentionally became a landlord (sublease situation gone bad) and I had no idea how to get the non-paying tenant out of my apartment. Richard helped me through the whole process and thoroughly explained everything as we went on. The best part? He was very easy to get into contact with. Without his efforts, I know that we wouldn’t have been able to handle this on our own. I highly recommend him! I hope I never have to go through this again, but if I do then he will be my first call. Thanks again, Richard!”Julia S.

“We hired Richard Cahan after a tenant trashed our house and disappeared without paying the last month of rent. Richard was extremely organized. He knew our case inside and out and helped us get a judgment against the renter which covered all of the damages, legal fees, and missing rent. He always responded to our emails in a timely fashion. He was even able to make it so we did not have to go to court and instead could give our testimony by phone. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for down to earth, competent help with a legal matter.”David N.

“When I was in the midst of a really tenuous landlord/tenant situation, I reached out to Richard Cahan Law for help. At first, he helped me approach the situation with free advice and a few long phone conversations. When I realized I wouldn’t be able to handle the situation alone, I hired Richard. Not only was his cost reasonable but he and his assistant were with me every step of the way! They helped resolve a very stressful and scary situation with confidence and professionalism. I will appreciate Richard Cahan and his assistant forever!”Colleen G.

“Richard represented me when an apartment complex was violating the lease and law when retaining my security deposit. He did a great job, and his fees, which were very reasonable, were paid by the apartment complex when they saw that I had a good attorney and I could not be jerked around anymore. Because of him, I was able to stand up for my rights as a matter of principle.”Tim P.

“Extremely pleased and fortunate to find Mr.Cahan to help me with a property and a challenging tenant. The advice and assistance I got were immediate and timely, the counsel effective, and the cost was understood up front (a concern in matters that can head quickly south). Options were presented and Mr Cahan asked the right questions and had an excellent grasp of the situation and my issues. I would use him again, if needed, happily and there is something very secure in feeling that I have outstanding representation available should I need it.”Patricia D.

“Richard has been very responsive on communicating with me. He gave me some advice at no charge. If my issues were to escalate legally, I will definitely hire him to take care of my case.”Christmas O.

“I am a tenant currently look at my options for terminating a lease. My landlord proposed an outrageous termination fee and told me that was the only way to get out of my lease. Richard Cahan was quick to provide legal guidance and answer any and all questions I have had. Thank you very much!”Jon S.

“Richard Cahan reviewed my case quickly over the weekend and provided invaluable advice at no charge. I would definitely consult with him and hire him if I ever need representation in the future.”Parviz

“I was dealing with a Landlord that didn’t pay their mortgage and a company that bought the house I was living in at an Auction. If it hadn’t been for Richard I would have literally been on the streets. You can tell, he really cares. Add that to his legal skills and you have the best lawyer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Thank You, Richard Cahan!”Jenny R.

“I called Richard and left a voicemail during the holiday season. Richard called me back promptly and when we eventually spoke he was courteous and informative, he gave me 15 minutes of his time. I really appreciated that!”Doug

“Found this law firm on Yelp in the first place. Most law firm’s usually requires days of the run around in order to have a meaningful conversation. I said what the heck and decided to give them a call and ask a few questions. Almost immediately I was on the phone with Richard. He was knowledgeable and courteous. Texas is a crazy state sometimes, and he really helped me feel comfortable.

I highly recommend him, and his law firm after my experience from this one phone call. If I run into any additional issues, I’ll certainly be using his services.”Ryan G.

“The first thing anyone needs to know about Mr. Cahan is, what a man! He is not a lawyer. he is a human lawyer. He understands and cares about how frustrating life can be for a tenant in Texas that is being taken advantage of. That said, he is a reasonable man and will make sure you are abiding by the law. He will make sure your rights are protected and if he can not help, because the law binds him, he will let you know that he wants to help you, but won’t be able to because the law ties his hands.

He also tells you the likelihood of something working out for you versus something highly unlikely. In the end, he knows you are the decision-maker and helps you do so. He presents you with all the options and is very upfront about everything before he moves forward. He told me upfront not to hire him yet, so I can save money beforehand.

Mr. Cahan is also a lawyer that understands that it is hard to decide if he needs to be hired before all questions are answered and all facts are presented. He gives you honest availability and is willing to talk things through with you before saying you need to pay him. He is not a lawyer that will say, “Sorry, that is enough free consultation for now. If you want any more advice, you will have to pay.” (Real words from a family friend lawyer my father once was trying to use stated to me.)”Samrat B.

“Mr. Cahan is a professional who is results-oriented. I was in a “frantic” situation with a brother who refused to leave my home when asked. Mr. Cahan heard the frustration in my voice, listened to my concerns, presented me with options, handled some less than stellar communications from me (in the beginning) and presented me with options. He and his office are very communicative with clear and concise counsel, professionalism, and most importantly he know the laws. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to his service! FIVE STARS for this law office!”Robert S.

“Richard was extremely helpful with the issue I was having with a previous landlord. He took the time to look over all the documents I had and gave me very frank and honest advice about my options and what the potential outcomes could be. I especially appreciated how prompt he was with his responses. Should I have another issue like this in the future, I would definitely contact him again and recommend him to any friends and family. Thanks Richard!”Jee K.

“On several occasions Mr. Cahan has handled rental problems and eviction related matters in Round Rock, Tx. on my behalf. I originally found his services on an internet search and it was not until over a year later that I finally had a chance to meet him in person, since all issues, paperwork and fees, were efficiently handled online! He is prompt, courteous, efficient, knowledgeable and his fees are reasonable.

I am in rentals and property management in California for 30+ years (now in Austin too), I can appreciate how important it is to have someone like Mr. Cahan available, especially at those times when I’m out of state and not in the local area. You will not regret it if you use his services.”A Satisfied Client

“Mr. Cahan was willing to take my case but counseled I try to work things out, out of court, if I can (ergo, he is not an ambulance chaser-type looking to take on anyone who will pay him.) He let me know what kind of evidence to collect based on what kind of arguments Austin judges like and which ones they don’t. In the end, I took his prudent advice and everything worked out for the bests. If I were in need of legal advice or services again, I would call him.”Dr. T.

“I would highly recommend Mr. Cahan as an extremely intelligent, honest, informed professional. In addition to his knowledge of the law, Cahan embraces human values and that puts him head and shoulders above so many others I have met. I am sincerely grateful for his help and expertise in tenant-landlord issues. His consultation solved my problem so there was no need to hire when I would have.”A Satisfied Client

“He got the job done. I didn’t want to evict but, had to. He took care of it all.”Vernon
