Inspired by his grandfather and father's wholesale produce business, he imbibed the core values of hard work and perseverance from a young age.

During his time at the University of Miami School of Law, Joseph interned with the respected Judge Spencer Eig, gaining invaluable experience and insights into the legal system. He also actively contributed to the Bankruptcy Pro Bono Assistance Clinic, working with clients seeking a fresh start. Joseph's leadership skills shone through as he served as the President of the Cardozo Legal Society, organizing networking events and fostering a sense of community within Miami's legal fraternity. Additionally, he dedicated his time to pro bono services in the Venture Law Project of Dade Legal Aid, supporting clients in need.

Prior to his current role at Landers & Sternberg PLLC, Joseph practiced law in Arizona with Thrasher Law Offices, where he specialized in due diligence for real estate transactions and provided legal guidance to startups. His extensive international experience and passion for exploring new horizons led him to co-found an international consulting company that facilitated production expansion for manufacturers in Southeast Asia.

Q. Can an apartment renew your lease without Knowledge after stating that there will be no renewal/ month to month?
A: Both parties are required to sign any lease, whether it is a renewal or a first lease. However, if there is a clause about a lease renewing, you would need to review that clause in your lease.

Often a renewal clause will state who (usually the tenant) has the option to renew. In such a scenario, the tenant would have to provide notice of electing to renew the lease. If there is no such language in the lease agreement and a tenant stays after it expires, then the parties are thereafter in a month-to-month tenancy.

As far as a landlord's right to evict a tenant, there are generally a few instances where a landlord can file for an eviction:

1) A tenant has not paid the rent. In Florida, the Landlord has to first provide the tenant with notice of default in a "3-Day Notice."

2) A tenant has breached a duty as required in the lease. Again, notice may be required depending on the non-compliance.

3) A tenant is a holdover, which means they have stayed past the lease when the Landlord has informed the tenant that they will not be renewing the lease.
