About Us

We Are

Battle-Tested

We are continuously fighting the biggest banks trying to wrongfully take away homes of our clients. And we know how to win.

Client-Focused

We understand how frustrating the entire process is to our clients. We do our best to make it painless and straightforward.

Result-Oriented

You don’t need a shoulder to cry on, nor someone to tell you fairy tales. You need someone to get you results. We’re up to the challenge

Devoted To Our Massachusetts Clients


After practicing the real estate law in Marblehead and Salem ever since 1981, we’ve moved our office to Lawrence – where our family spearheads a non-profit organization serving the town’s youth. Being a small firm allows us to dedicate ourselves 100% to each of our clients. A long history of athletics and social justice initiatives drives us to fight until the end. Having a complete and advanced knowledge of the foreclosure law enables us to reach legal victories.

 

Affordable Pricing
We understand the struggles of homeowners facing foreclosure and eviction.
We customize our fee structure so you get the best possible results – all while not going over the budget!

 

¿Habla Español?
We do! Our attorney has decent communication skills, but we also keep an on-call translator who can step in if needed.
