Are you being evicted or do you need to evict a tenant? We zealously represent landlords and tenants in all aspects of the eviction process. Having an experienced and skillful lawyer at your side as a landlord or tenant can drastically increase your chance for an outcome in your favor during mediation and in court. We have also experience representing prospective tenants for denial of public or subsidized housing or for denial of private rental properties because of discrimination.
Do you know as a tenant, if you have a disability, whether physical or mental, your landlord is required, in many instances, to provide you reasonable accommodation? This is an area overlooked by many people. As a tenant with disability, you may even request that the landlord change policies or procedures under the lease to accommodate you. In many instances, as a tenant with disability, you may be able to have the landlord rescinded an eviction notice if the violation of the lease arises out of your disability or your child’s disability or the landlord’s failure to provide you and your family with reasonable accommodation. Our law firm will aggressively defend your rights for reasonable accommodation under the American Disability Act, Fair Housing Act and the Massachusetts Housing Bill of Rights for People with Disabilities, G.L. c. 151B.
We have extensive experience dealing with property management. If you owe property available for rent, we pledge to restore your peace of mind by managing your property to allow you to focus on other important matters.
