A Navy servicemember seek pro bono assistance in a dispute against his former landlord. The sailor lived in a rented apartment, which he vacated last year at the end of his lease. Before vacating the home, he paid to have it professionally cleaned, including carpet cleaning. The landlord claims that there was extensive damage to the carpet and other areas of the home and has withheld a portion of the Sailor’s security deposit. The sailor would like help to challenge the withholding and receive the entirety of his security deposit.
