He has been representing the interests of property owners and managers in

Connecticut for over 18 years. Robert has managed more than eighteen thousand

litigation alike. He has also worked on a wide range of fair housing related

matters in private negotiations, public agencies, state courts and federal court.


Adam Schweickert is a partner and trial lawyer at the Landlord Law Firm.
