Eviction Contact Form

Where We Work

Currently, we only perform evictions within Pierce County (including the cities within it, like Tacoma, UP, Lakewood, Fircrest, Bonney Lake, etc.). However, we plan to expand to Seattle in the not-so-distant future.

Who We Work For

As far as residential evictions are concerned, we only work for landlords. However, we do sometimes work for commercial tenants.

Our Prices

We charge the following competitive flat fees for residential evictions only (commercial evictions vary too widely for flat fees):

  • $475 plus costs if the tenant(s) vacate after being served by the process server and the case doesn’t need to be filed
  • $775 plus costs if the case is filed but tenant does not answer (i.e. case is uncontested)
  • $1,075 plus costs if the tenant(s) do not vacate and does file an answer requesting a show cause hearing (i.e. case is contested)

Cost Estimates

Costs vary by county. However, the following is a general estimate of additional costs that can occur, depending on how the eviction process pans out:

  • $75-150 for process server (depending on how difficult it is to serve the tenant)
  • $85-240 for filing fee
  • $40 for ex parte filing fee
  • $20 for writ fee
  • $115-200 for Sheriff’s fee
