Heekin Law has a tremendous amount of experience dealing with many facets of real estate law including representation for commercial and residential landlords, and commercial tenants. We understand that both landlords and tenants have certain rights and responsibilities when entering into a lease agreement under Florida law. Those obligations start as soon as an agreement is executed between the parties and the prearranged terms determine the responsibilities to which both parties agree. Our highly experienced real estate attorneys draft durable lease agreements that clearly outline those terms and conditions of a lease which can go a long way in preventing potential issues that may arise.
Besides handling landlord-tenant lease drafting and review, we also have extensive experience representing both commercial and residential landlords in dispute resolution and litigation. Examples include but are not limited to: breach of lease agreements, collection of unpaid monies, damage to rental property and eviction of tenants, etc. We also serve as general counsel to landlords in dealing with additional issues that may arise including utility liens, construction liens, and code enforcement issues. If you have any questions regarding the drafting of a commercial or residential lease agreement or revising your current commercial or residential lease agreement, please contact our office for a free, no-obligation consultation.
As a commercial and business law attorney law firm, we know that great ideas and efficient marketing strategies may make a business stand out, but what really allows a business to rise above its competition and thrive is the effective handling of its day-to-day business law issues it may face. From entity selection, contract formation to dispute resolution for all parties concerned, having an available and proven, cost-effective legal resource is essential in today’s business environment.
At Heekin Law, we understand one of the most important concerns to a landlord is ensuring that a continuous stream of income is uninterrupted and when issues arise, as they often do, swift decisive action should be taken on their part, limiting the loss as much as possible. To this end, lease agreements should be drafted in a way that protects the landlord’s interest and is most favorable to the landlord in the event a dispute arises. Florida law governing the relationship between landlords and tenants can be fairly involved and technical, so those who seek legal counsel should retain only qualified and competent real estate attorneys experienced in such matters.
If you are in a current dispute with a tenant or foresee a dispute with a tenant will develop, the attorneys at Heekin Law can help guide you through the process and legal remedies that are at your disposal. We can also help you take immediate action to either resolve the problem or remove the tenant from the leased premises.

In addition to handling landlord and tenant disputes, Heekin Law is experienced in all facets of business law including business disputes, business formations, creditors rights, contract drafting, review and disputes, all aspects of construction law as well as representing HOA’s and COA’s. We not only have extensive litigation experience but are also experienced at the Appellate level.

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
