A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono help with a landlord-tenant dispute. On several occasions, the servicemember notified the landlord of a leaking ceiling and standing water, but the landlord did not provide adequate repairs. The Department of Health was notified and, while their investigation was ongoing, the ceiling collapsed, and the home was then deemed unsafe to occupy. The servicemember has tried to reach a settlement for over a year with the landlord, and the landlord has been unresponsive. She seeks help to obtain damages for her personal property and medical expenses.
