About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing in Massachusetts since 1994.  My primary practice consists of real estate, zoning, landlord/tenant, commercial leasing, litigation and representation of non-profit entities. I am a frequent presenter before the Mass Bar Association on landlord tenant matters.  I act as local counsel for one of the most active lemon law and consumer rights firms in the country.

Commercial real estate
I have been renting a commercial space at a building for 8 years. The building was recently bough out by a new landlord. David clearly explained to me where I stand and what options I have. Would certainly hire him to work on my future commercial real estate needs.

Commercial real estate deal
Have used David extensively for years and he is the best. Extremely easy to work with and very accommodating with his time even at off hours. I highly recommend David, and even outside of his areas of specialty he will track down the right person.

David Jackowitz
David and I have worked on several matters together over the past ten years. His knowledge of zoning matters and his ability to accomplish clients' goals are unparalleled. In addition, he is our go-to person for landlord tenant matters. I value my relationship with David and the other attorneys in his firm, and never hesitate to refer him to our closest friends and clients.
