Massachusetts has some of the most tenant friendly landlord-tenant statutes in the United States. Tenants have many rights under the law and as a result, a landlord is almost always at a disadvantage when initiating an eviction. Residential rental property is a highly regulated business. A landlord can succeed but he/she must know the law and understand it.

Self-represented litigants are held to the same standards as attorneys. As a result, it’s crucial to understand and apply the rules of court and constitutional protections relevant to each action. Self-represented litigants are often ill prepared to do so. In order to navigate litigation efficiently and effectively, hiring an experienced attorney to guide litigation prevents costly errors resulting from the failure to understand available rights and remedies.
