After the apartment building I was living in for 6 years was sold to a new landlord (Boston's largest residential company) and my rent was increased by 50%, I hired Ed's services. He did a great job of explaining my tenants rights and what to expect in an eviction process. With Ed's help we tried to negotiate a reasonable rent increase. The negotiation wasn't successful and an eviction process began. Ed in court proceedings was extremely professional and well respected by the Judge. Ed processed all court paperwork with limited input from me. He took a very stressful situation I was in and made me very relaxed! In the end, Ed was able to negotiate a very favorable outcome. I highly recommend Ed for any tenant/landlord issues.

Wholeheartedly agree with all of the excellent reviews of Ed Rice. His expertise and guidance during an extremely stressful time was invaluable.

I am in the middle of an extremely stressful situation where the landlord has broken the lease by offering an apartment which is contrary in many ways to the contract. I have been writing to the landlord, to multiple other lawyers and wasting a lot of stress on this. One phone call to Edward and I feel like the weight has lifted right off my shoulders. He's smart, he's honest and he has excellent communication skills. I will always refer people to him.

I had trouble with an ex-landlord illegally with holding my security deposit this past fall and Edward Rice wrote up a great letter that got the money back that I deserved! He was very punctual and personable during the whole process. He never made me feel small with my lack of legal knowledge, he just explained everything in a way I could understand and made me happy about the results. I definitely recommend Edward as an attorney to any of my friends or family.

He really doesn't care about money, but you. All the other attorney see that there are nothing can be done with my case so don't want to waste time on me, but he has patience to explain all the reasons and analyze for me, and answer all my call whenever I have more questions coming out even in the late night. He could just earn the money and fight for me, but he really care about what is good for me, and knowledgable enough to persuade me settle that all other attorney tried but just can't get my trust.

Ed has been my attorney since 2009 until present. Ed has kept me informed of my case and answered any questions I have had along the way. He gets back to you quickly and goes above and beyond his duties as a lawyer. He is one of those lawyer's that goes the EXTRA mile when handling your case.

Ed was my attorney from Feb 2011-March 2012. Throughout this time he was extremely responsive - he addressed all of my questions and concerns. He consistently kept both me and my roommate informed on the status of our case. With Ed's knowledge and expertise, we were able to settle out of court. Ed's a great person to have on your team - I would recommend him without hesitation.

Ed Rice was my attorney until January 2012. Ed has a remarkable depth of knowledge of landlord/tenant law in Massachusetts. Ed has always answered my questions, my phone calls and returned my calls promptly during the entire process. Ed proved experienced, skillful and persuasive in mediating my case allowing us to settle the case out of court for a generous sum with assurances. I highly recommend him.
