NOT EVERY LAWYER IS THE SAME!    Paul D. Lambert has been concentrating in real estate law, estate planning & probate, Landlord-Tenant Law, and advising small businesses for more than twenty eight years.  Paul has been in the private practice of law since 1990. He considers it a true privilege to assist first time home buyers, and guides his buyers through the purchase process from the Offer to Purchase to receiving the keys to their new home.  He also understands that selling a home, especially for “empty nesters” can be emotional and even heart-wrenching, and Paul will also be there to guide you through the sale of your home from start to finish.  Paul has represented hundreds of Buyers, Borrowers and Sellers, and he has conducted more than a thousand closings for mortgage lenders for residential and commercial transactions.    Whether it is the first home that you have ever purchased or your fiftieth refinance Paul Lambert is the person with the experience and comfortableness that you deserve and will come to expect from the legal professionals that work for you.

 

Planning for “life after we are gone” is not always an easy process, nor is it something that we like to “think about”.  Paul has assisted many, many individuals and families with their estate planning needs, and Paul understands that as we grow older our needs change and our objectives do as well.  It is never too early to plan for the future “without us”; but sadly, it may sometimes be “too little, too late”.  Paul will take the time to discuss your individual circumstances and needs and assist you in creating an estate plan that “works for you”. 

Being a "Landlord", especially in Massachusetts. can be a daunting endeavor.  The laws are stacked against Landlords. Unless you "cross the 'T's and dot the 'I's", the procedures and bureaucracy can inhibit your Rights as a Landlord.  Landlord-Tenant Law is very procedural and Landlords often "fall victim" to the "rules".

Paul has advised many small business owners and entrepreneurs with their business formation and reporting needs; and  looks forward to assisting many more in the future as the local economy continues to expand and grow.

Selling a house during COVID19
Selling or buying a home during theses unprecedented times may feel impossible. However I am here to tell you that with the right team it can be done. Paul Lambert and team were simply amazing! There were definitely some twists and turns as we navigated the process. There was no problem that the team couldn't solve for us. It was simply amazing to watch them navigate the new and ever changing world we are learning to function in. They truly didn't let anyone or thing stop us from getting from offer to closing. I know we couldn't have gotten there without them! They are simply the best!!

“I hired Paul Lambert to help my husband and I deal with our wills, estate and health proxies, something we had been putting off far too long. Paul was knowledgeable and more than patient with all of our questions. Paul got it all sorted out, leaving us assured our assets and family were well protected. I would hire him again and would highly recommend him.

Painless and fast!
Paul responded quickly to my inquiries, even after hours. His answers were clear and even answered my follow up questions before I could even ask them. This was the easiest part of the home selling process. A few things emailed and one 10-minute meeting to get things signed, now that's an efficient attorney!

Outstanding Service
The highest compliment I can give Paul - is he provides my clients outstanding service. He is not only an excellent attorney but always available, accommodates my clients needs/ requirements during a very stressful time for them. He is patient, easy going but an ardent legal defender of his clients. He approaches problems with multiple solutions in mind - counsels his clients and keeps my team updated. He is well respected by his peers. I am comfortable referring Paul's services - we have done so for many years. Paul answers the phone and does what he says he will do. In today's world that is rare. Highly recommend.

Superb Service!
I've had the pleasure of working with Paul with several clients on real estate purchases (and sales!) Paul is focused on providing great service, he is patient and knowledgeable and a valuable member of the real estate community. He is one of my first picks when it comes to referring a real estate attorney to my clients!

Paul made what could have been a very difficult sale, and easy and stress free process. His almost instant response to any questions I had was very much appreciated. This is the second time I have used Paul's office and I would highly recommend him.

Attorney Paul Lambert
I have had the pleasure of knowing Paul Lambert for a few years. We recently purchased a second home and Paul was the closing attorney. It was a "Murphy's Law" deal if there ever was one. Through it all Paul was calm, patient, and responsive, traits that not many people, let alone attorneys posses. We were closing at the registry at 3:00 on a friday of a holiday weekend and I was so nervous, until I entered the registry and there was Paul smiling already having the Seller begin their paperwork and I knew we would be able to close and get on record that day. I would highly recommend Paul Lambert for all your legal needs. Thank you.

Great Experience.
Paul helped us set up an LLC and close on an investment property. Paul was infinitely helpful in explaining, patiently, and in language we could understand, every step of the process. He returned call, text and emails promptly and his demeanor is easy and kind. Would hire him again any day.

The most helpful attorney I've ever worked with
Paul was the closing attorney for my first real estate transaction when I was first licensed. I found out quickly how important it is to have an attorney that is responsive to your client and to realtors as well. I can't recommend him enough.. my family members now use Paul when forming LLCs and Trust since we invest. Paul also handles our evictions for Four Points Property Management our family business. If you want someone who you can trust, who isn't going to gouge your wallet and will answer your call use Paul. That's key when choosing and attorney someone who answers the phone when you need them most. That's why I've stuck with Paul for all of this time.

A job well done.
We are very pleased with the representation provided to us by Paul Lambert. I suspect others may share our feelings of vulnerability when purchasing real estate; Paul alleviated so many of our stresses as we navigated this experience. He is professional and knowledgeable, and provided us the assurance we were looking for to make sure our interests were protected. We will be asking Paul to handle the sale of the existing home as well once we are ready.

We hired Paul to be our closing attorney on the recent sale of our house - Paul came to our house on a Sunday morning with all the necessary paperwork to be signed - he was organized, explained everything in detail and handled the closing with the Real Estate agent and the buyers attorney. Everything could not have gone smoother. Would highly recommend him to anyone, and would definitely use him again for any legal services needed. Very friendly and knowledgeable

Paul and his team were not only courteous and professional, they were also prompt and detailed in any and all communications with us during this transaction. This was a great experience and I felt confident about the entire process because Paul made us feel comfortable with our very first New England home purchase!!

Real Estate Confidence
I have been using Paul's office for years, however more recently my business has grown and am doing multiple transactions with Paul. He and his staff are professional, courteous and always quick to turn title around. I expect that my RE attorney or their staff will communicate with my client borrowers and Attorney Lambert makes them feel like they are his only transaction.
