Have you ever had a domestic violence situation occur at your property? Have you been trained on how to both legally and ethically handle this type of situation?
In many states, Domestic Violence victims have specific protection from being evicted as a result of the DV incident, but even more importantly, HUD has recognized that Domestic Violence victims can be protected under the Fair Housing Act, as well. Let our attorneys bring you up to speed on the laws in your State that related to tenants who are DV victims; Fair Housing Act implications for common DV situations; and how the provisions of your Lease may also impact your ability to file and/or evict a tenant in a DV situation.
April Cole and Nicole Nichols will take a deep dive into the most important legal issues associated with handling domestic violence situations onsite in North Carolina.

About the Instructors:
Nicole is a Senior Associate Attorney who joined the Loebsack and Brownlee team in 2018. She thinks her coworkers are fabulous and appreciates how much our team cares about what we do and how we do it. When she’s not in the Mecklenburg or Gaston County Courthouses, she’s busy helping clients and reviewing cases for approval and filing. Before going to law school and joining the L&B Team, Nicole worked as a farmhand, taking care of the animals on their family farm. She previously owned a dance studio with 200+ students, and currently co-owns a scholarship pageant with her mom. She also loves to travel with her husband and children.
April is the Supervising Attorney over the Charlotte office and has been with Loebsack and Brownlee since 2018. She enjoys working with her L&B team, who have quickly become like a second family, and loves solving problems and working with clients to resolve their pending issues. She spends most days in the Mecklenburg County courthouse, but also supports the team in surrounding counties. Before law school and joining the L&B team, April taught 5th grade in a Title I high needs school, which was both a challenging and rewarding experience. Little known fact about April? She is a kitchen gadget junkie – if it exists, she wants to own it…except InstaPots, which terrify her!
