Serving Springfield Clients for Over 25 Years

Our outstanding legal team practices in numerous areas of the law, equipping our attorneys to assist you with many types of legal problems. We are also cognizant of how these areas intersect with the impact of COVID-19, so if you are experiencing a legal problem as a result of the pandemic, do not hesitate to schedule a consultation to see how we can help.

Business Law

We are committed to helping companies in Massachusetts in every area of their business, especially as many experience economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. Whether your business is only an idea or an established titan of industry, our business lawyers are prepared to assist you with your legal needs.

Some of the business law services we can assist you with include:

  • Contract drafting and review – writing, assessing, and formalizing of legal agreements essential to conducting your business
  • Business litigation – resolving disputes of all types through the legal system

Criminal Defense

Being accused of a crime of any sort is a serious matter, and you deserve the best legal representation possible in defending your legal rights in court. Our trial attorneys are equipped to handle any number of cases, with an emphasis on robust preparation to give you the best odds of a successful outcome.

The types of criminal defense cases we cover include:

Estate Planning & Probate

It is never too early to make a proactive plan to protect your assets. Life can be unpredictable, and strategic estate planning can prepare you and your loved ones for every eventuality. We can also help if your loved one’s affairs end up in probate court.

Some of the estate planning documents we can assist you with include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advanced healthcare directives

    Landlord-Tenant Disputes

    Landlords and renters each have rights in a tenancy relationship under Massachusetts and federal law. When disputes cannot be resolved between the two parties, we can represent either landlords or tenants to protect and honor the rights of all involved in search of a solution.

    Some of the common landlord-tenant disputes we can assist you with include:

    • Evictions, including those due to the COVID-19 pandemic
    • Security deposit issues
    • Inhabitable living conditions
    • Nonpayment of rent or rent increase problems
    • Safety disclosures
    • Discriminatory practices

    Personal Injury

    Suffering an injury can be inconvenient, traumatic, and costly. As such, you are often entitled to renumeration from the party that created the unsafe scenario that left you injured. Many will still resist giving you the compensation you deserve, which is where our legal team comes in.

    Some of the categories of personal injury we can assist you in include:

    • Insurance claims
    • Slip and fall accidents
    • Motorcycle accidents
    • Car accidents
    • Dog bites
    • Premises liability

    Bankruptcy

    If you are experiencing insurmountable financial hardship and fear there is no way out, we can help. Our team has substantial experience helping our clients find debt relief and fresh financial slates through bankruptcy. We can assist you with Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, both of which provide the benefit of ending creditor harassment through a court’s “automatic stay.”
