I had a situation where a tenant did not inform me of an issue with my property for many months and did not relay in any detail what was the sporadic issue. Instead a lawyer relative of the tenant decided to complain on their behalf in great detail with possible legal action and compensation requirements. This was after many months of an apparent issue that I had not been informed about by the non-communicative tenant.
I was very concerned as it was all a big shock to me due to the long delay in the tenant communicating and I felt unsure of the next steps and what could happen to me legally. And of course I wanted to know my rights at this point in time.
I needed a lawyer quickly who understood all the legal possibilities as a Landlord and as I have moved from the area I had to decide by searching online. I chose Chris based solely on all the great AVVO reviews he has had on his website and his specialty. I was able to send him detailed emails and had some lengthy conversations to get him up to speed with the correspondence I had received.
Chris immediately put me at ease with his professionalism and sympathetic manner; he calmly read all my correspondence and made notes about my predicament. Chris went through all the possible scenarios and ways to handle different situations. He prepared me for all future situations but made sure we addressed all current possibilities without having to escalate the situation. For all continuing correspondence, Chris created replies and advised me on every step of the process and continued to defend my rights as a Landlord.
Through Chris’s guidance I was able to resolve the issue satisfactorily. I highly recommend Chris to any Landlord/tenant who is having any kind of issue regarding leasing/renting property.

Chris helped negotiate a favorable settlement for me and my roommates in a difficult situation with our former landlord. Chris was professional, diligent, patient, and insightful throughout the entire process, and we could not have asked for a better experience given the circumstances. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs legal help regarding tenant law and landlord help in the greater Boston area.

I have emailed Chris inquiring recommendations and suggestions about dealing with our landlord over bed bugs infestation/damages/claims in the apartment we rent from. He was extremely helpful and quick in his responses, more so than any other attorneys I've contacted. I'd highly recommend Chris to anyone dealing with landlord/tenant issues.

I have had the pleasure of both collaborating with Attorney Saccardi on tenant matters with the Volunteer Lawyer's Project as well as litigating against Attorney Saccardi. In both instances he was knowledgeable, professional, and diligent in his efforts.
