What could I do if my landlord’s agent enters my apartment without permission?

My landlord’s agent (a security guard) took my son home. When my son tried to close the front door, the security guard entered. My son came into our bedroom and told us security guard was in apartment. My wife then went out there and told him to leave. He ignored her. We had to move because we couldn’t live in that kind of atmosphere. Can we go after security guard for civil trespass? What about management co-owners? What type of attorney handles this? I did notify management about this and I got a letter back saying the security guard did not enter our apartment. This security guard lied.
