We’re young couples who own the company name: AL & ASSOCIATES LLC. We signed the lease agreement in November 2017 with three years terms.
During the first two years lease, the management couldn’t arrange the space of the large light box ads billboard for my office, as well as the lobby index board. We complained many every month but get no resolution. At the month of December 2019, we talked last time to the management and asked them to finalized the situation: arrange the ads spot for us and calculate the lost or we terminate the lease due to landlord’s breach of contract. We refused to pay for the rent until they give us a properly reply. Several months with no reply and the COVID -19 comes. We had to shut down all business activities. On August 25th 2020, we went to check the mailbox and were astonished when opened our office door and found all stuffs inside office were gone!!!
【we put lots of personal stuffs in the back room of this office, lifetime memories, including but not limited from my foster mom’s pictures(she died in 2013 and those are only pictures I have with me, my foster dad made another family and he gave all mom’s pictures to me when last time I visit China) all my awards, certificates, profiles, project records, hundreds of book collection, my stage acting decors, my handmade crafts, my photography artworks; my husband’s lifetime garment collections, souvenirs, the handmade lighthouse as symbol of our love, valued more than &20,000 limit-edition road bike, outdoor gears, two computers, office furnitures, tons of office supplies, client’s informations(as we provide financial consulting services, we have clients sensitive information on files) and much more】
Without notice or any legal action, landlord Naji Garabet asked his janitor to throw out all stuffs we put in the office. Our lifetime memories and all client’s informations were gone. Wecalled police of City of Arcadia, they were also surprised that the landlord dare to do this and they issued incident report for us and suggested us to find a lawyer right away. The landlord called me right after I reported, he even said that he went inside our office and see all garbages, what kind of nonsense it was!
We consult several lawyers and they asked certain amount of fees in front to cover the preparation of the paperworks and hiring the investigation professional to sue the landlord.
We’re here to seeking help to sue the aarrogance landlord and uphold justice, thank you in advance for your help. Any amount is appreciated from bottom of our heart❤️
