Fair Housing and Beyond

Fair Housing seems to be a common theme in all of our client discussions, Whether it’s advice on how to avoid such a claim or a fear that every action poses legitimate liability risk, fair housing always seems to be lurking in the background for property owners and managers. As the legislative session in CT gets underway, it seems as though the efforts by lawmakers to continue to expand this cloud under which you operate is in high gear. 

We will cover some of the proposals offered to become the law in CT as well as some recent experiences with fair housing defenses, both successes and lessons learned. And, more importantly, we will open the floor to questions immediately that we can be certain we address the fair housing questions and issues you want to handle most. Presented by Landlord Law Firm, please join us to discuss the changing and expanding landscape of fair housing in CT. 

This seminar will be presented by Robert W. Chesson, Esq.

and Adam Schweickert of Landlord Law Firm

Robert W. Chesson, Esq. is the managing partner of the Landlord Law Firm.

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

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

summary process matters and countless other disputes between landlords and

tenants, including low-income public housing and large commercial lease

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.

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 is also primarily responsible for managing the “complex” matters

that the Landlord Law Firm Team handles.
