Angie Gayle and her two kids need a place to live and their former landlord wasn’t helping.

Back in June a vehicle came crashing through the living room wall of her Paterson apartment. The driver died. Angie and her kids were OK, but the apartment was destroyed. Four months later, her landlord hadn’t given back her $1,900 security deposit.

So Angie got in touch with me. Before I even placed a call she suddenly got an offer of $1,100 from the landlord’s lawyer. No dice. Angie had no renters insurance and needs all the money.

I placed a call to the guy who managed her property, Luis Pina. He was nice enough on the phone. But the important thing is that just minutes later Angie said she got a text promising the refund. And the next day she picked up a check for the full $1,900.

Justice delayed isn’t always denied. Now she can put the money towards a new place.
