My roommate and I were referred to Chris after a dispute with our landlord over the security deposit. He was able to advise us on the quickest way of resolving. We ended up settling and got our deposit back and damages.

Christopher Saccardi is the real deal. He cares about his clients and is supportive and helpful every chance he gets. He is reassuring but explains the reality of the situation. I would highly recommend him for whatever legal work you need,

We hired Chris Saccardi for a tenant issue. After one meeting with him, we knew he was the attorney for us. He is caring, honest and he certainly knows the law. If you have a question for Chris, and no issue is too small, he will get you an answer. If you don't get him immediately on the phone, he WILL call you back the same day. He helped us immensely and if we ever have any tenant issues again, he will definitely be the attorney for us. It was a pleasure to deal with Chris, we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney for tenant/landlord issues.

My roommates and I hired Chris in fall 2014 to assist in settling a dispute with our landlord. We were a little bit overwhelmed by the situation, and we weren't quite sure what to do. I looked up a few different lawyers, and all of them were hesitant to give me advice on my situation before receiving payment for a meeting. In contrast, Chris spent an hour painstakingly walking me through the nuances of my case and discussing all of the different possible outcomes. During our first conversation, he did not make me feel pressured to pay him any money; he simply wanted me to make an informed decision about how to best proceed.
We decided to retain his services. Our case was settled professionally, promptly, and in our favor. Chris clearly explained his fees, and I thought they were fair, given the amount of time and effort he put into our case. He knew the law forward and backward. If you ever find yourself in a dispute with your landlord, I highly recommend that you hire Chris!

Faced with a difficult situation I turned to Attorney Christopher Saccardi for help. During our initial meetings he set my expectations for possible outcomes and we reviewed a strategy to get the best possible solution for me. Throughout the entire process Chris was very forthcoming and knowledgeable. He discussed all of the potential stumbling blocks and we worked through Plan Bs. The most important thing Chris helped me with was patience. At time when I would become extremely frustrated at the situation he would calmly help diffuse whatever was going on. His patience was invaluable.
In the end I got the best possible outcome that neither of us really expected. I would definitely use Chris again in the future if I am faced with a similar situation.

Chris's handling of my landlord-tenant matter was outstanding. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, efficient, and he got me tangible results. I would highly recommend his services.

I called a few lawyers regarding a tenant who was chronically late with rent payments. No one returned my call. Chris Saccardi returned my calls promptly (if he could not answer immediately), presented options for making the best decisions considering the circumstances, and treated everyone involved with patience and understanding. Chris kept me updated on his side of the situation by either phone or email. Luckily we did not have to take this to court as my tenant left "voluntarily". I high recommend Chris Saccardi to anyone facing landlord/tenant problems. Thanks, Chris!

Landlord/Tenant law in Massachusetts and especially in the Boston Housing Court is unbelievably complicated. When my wife and I had problems with the tenant in our one and only rental unit, friends warned us we were in for a very long and very frustrating journey through the courts. No way we were going to try this on our own, so we went looking for the best Landlord/Tenant attorney in the area. We wanted someone who really understood both sides and could anticipate problems and obstacles before they blind-sided us. When we met Chris Saccardi, we stopped looking.
As it turned out, it was the best decision we made. Chris is very affordable; he's an expert in the convoluted world of Housing Court with all its odd little nuances; he's cool, calm, and collected under fire; plus he's a real lawyer's lawyer. He gets it. Our problem was a deadbeat "professional tenant," who was not paying rent, and would not leave. He was milking the system and using the court for everything he could get away with. Friends warned us we could be stuck with this guy for a year...or longer. No rent, no apartment. Amazing! What a headache!
After educating us on what we were up against, Chris put together a plan of action that used every legal tool available to us to back our moocher into a corner more than once and finally got the Court to get us an eviction order, a judgement for back rent, and most important... he got a constable and moving van to send our friend packing so we could move back in to our apartment... all within about 13 weeks! Chris was a real life-saver...and probably a marriage-saver. Ask my wife. I could not recommend him highly enough. Whether you're a landlord or a tenant, you won't find a better, more level-headed, or more knowledgeable advocate. He's the best! Thanks again Chris.

I highly recommend Attorney Saccardi, who represented me and my wife over the course of 1 year as we experienced landlord-tenant difficulties from 2013-2014. We experienced unannounced renovations, difficulty getting repairs, and general hostility with our landlord. Chris helped us feel protected while we lived at our rental, and made sure we could leave the rental property without complications from the landlord. Chris is very knowledgable because landlord-tenant disputes are his sole focus. Most importantly, he is a good person and that is the type of attorney you want on your side.

I would recommend Chris Saccardi to anyone looking for an attorney who specializes in tenant-landlord law. Chris was very knowledgeable, personable, and professional. As soon as I had an initial meeting with him, I felt confident in him handling my case. He clearly explained all of my options and made sure that I understood what was going on at every step in the process. Chris always kept me updated on my case through phone calls and e-mails, and he was very accessible when I had questions. I am very satisfied with his handling of my suit and its successful resolution.
