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.

We reached out to Chris in regards to a dispute we were having with our former landlord. Chris promptly connected with us to understand the details and review our documentation. He clearly explained all of our options and potential outcomes. He was so patient with us and our lack of knowledge with legal terminology. He was always accessible and always kept us in the loop and up to date as the case progressed--we really appreciated that! Things were a bit challenging with the former landlord but Chris was always one step ahead. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional! We are so appreciative of his time and expertise. We truly enjoyed working with Chris! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone seeking help with the justice system.

My tenants didn't pay rent for over six months. I was searching a lawyer to evict the tenants. After read his good review, and called MA lawyer association for reference, I decided to hire Christopher Saccardi. It turned out is a right choice. He worked very hard. Even 11pm in evening, he still kept working. So my case resolved quickly and didn't have any delay. He is also very thoughtful. He always gave me good advice and helped us to save time and money. I highly recommend this lawyer for your landlord/tenant problems.

I live in California. In Fall of 2014, I learned of the sudden death of my co-investor of an East Boston property. Our lease tenant then made the decision to stop paying rent. In early January 2015, based on the many strong Avvo reviews I read, I contacted Chris Saccardi.
From the start, Chris was impressive. He responded immediately to my request for his help, and accepted my case despite the distance. Based on the pertinent facts, he educated me on all possible approaches and outcomes.
Chris, being the fair person he is, began by reaching out to the non-paying tenant, to no avail. He then quickly started the eviction process, which in March resulted in nearly all arrearage being paid. I was relieved and grateful as I realized that the process could have taken much longer than just a couple of months, and I could have easily been out significantly more money.
All through this difficult time, Chris's cool and gentle manner kept me reassured and hopeful. I will always be grateful for his brilliance, dignity, and excellent character.

In trying to deal with a nuanced and complicated tenant and sub-tenant issue in Boston, Mr. Saccardi was a great help. He went above and beyond a simple consultation. After a "discovery" call, we conducted the rest of our interactions by email. He was clear about our options (even if we didn't like them) as well as the risk we took if we didn't consider them (he presented these in a professional and non-judgmental way). In the end, we took his well-informed and well-reasoned advice. He was prompt, professional, and a great help. If we end up going to court over this issue, he will be our first choice.

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,
