: I spoke to a lawyer and he wants $1200 for these proceedings, and $500 to do proceedings for subletting the same apartment, he says that he should be able to get around $15000 to $20000 in damages. I know that the amount is much larger than what I am putting in, but I wanted to find out if there was someone else that I can compare prices.

Sounds reasonable. But only hire him/her if s/he represents only tenants, not landlords. Call the firms that advertise here on TenantNet to get quotes to compare.
