What should I do if my landlord will not put in a screen in window in my children's bedroom window? 

Question Details:

I've lived in my apartment for 5 years. My children's room screen has never been put in the window the entire time. We live on the third floor. I now have a 1 year-old and a 7 year-old share the room. I have put furniture around the window but it can still be tampered with without me knowing. I have been complaining about this to my landlord. It should just be there regardless of any situation.  I don't want any of my kids to fall out of the window while we're all supposed to be asleep. He tells me that he's sending a man to fix the job everyday. But he never shows (for 5 years straight). I can't sleep at night. I want to take him to court but I need a lawyer. What should I do?
