G. Adam Schweickert, Esq. is a partner and trial lawyer at the Landlord Law Firm, a boutique law firm that provides both landlord and property management companies with representation in both the residential and commercial settings. The firm’s clients include residential landlords and property managers with market and subsidized properties, including Section 8 (project-based and certificates), low income housing tax credit, bond programs, low income public housing, and Hope VI projects, and commercial landlords with retail, manufacturing, and general office space.
As a trial lawyer, Adam has prosecuted thousands of summary process and collections actions on behalf of landlords and property managers against problem tenants, and resolved the problem or removed the tenant by agreement or trial and collected the money due. He has defended landlords facing fair housing, criminal prosecution, and other litigation, and consulted with them to avoid facing the underlying issues in the first place. Adam and his partner, Robert W. Chesson, Esq., have also handled several successful appeals for landlords resulting in highly favorable law for Connecticut landlords.
Adam also consults with landlords and property managers regarding their business processes and operations, including lease review, drafting, and amendments; regulatory compliance; property management operations involving tenants, such as application and tenant screening, rent collection, inspections and unit-related maintenance, services, and rehabilitation, and problem tenant resolution; and due diligence in property acquisition.

Chatigny, U.S. District Judge in the District of Connecticut in Hartford, and the Honorable Wade Brorby, U.S. Circuit Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
