An early mentor of mine once told me that the key to a successful practice was never to lose sight of the client's interest and to always put the client first.  The rest, she said, inevitably falls into place.  It was, and still is, fantastic advice from an accomplished leader.  I run my practice by this philosophy.   Whether I'm serving an individual or a corporation, a family business or a large franchise, I always take time to communicate with my clients to evalute, assess and re assess goals and expectations.   As someone who has grown up in a family of business owners I understand the value of exceeding clients expectations.  


 I'm very fortunate to be in a profession that allows me to do what I love; help others with their problems and needs.  My clients have come to know this and they have also come to know something else; that they always come first.

Residential landlord
I had a very problematic tenant. Attorney Sandonato was able to get this tenant to vacate the property prior to going to housing court. This saved me significant money and time. I would very much recommend using him in eviction / problem tenant situations.

Great Help
Atty Marco Sandonato helped me with a housing situation pertaining to my mom Hewas a good listener, he was as open and honest and followed through. He was responsive, kept his word and showed compassion. I'd definitely use his services again should any other housing situations arise.

We Are Lucky To Have Found Him!
After we had become homeowners of a unit in a three-unit Townhouse, we learned of the wrongdoings of the previous owner of our unit and the owners of the other two condominiums. Right from the start Marco Sandonato reassured us that everything was going to be ok. He took the time to explain to us what we did not understand and he always had a strategy with our best interest in mind. What really stood out to us, is how he found serious mistakes made by the previous lawyers and corrected them. Marco helped us to get out of this tangle with the other unit owners. He also recommended a great real-estate agent and supported us until our unit was sold. We were extremely happy with the outcome of it all. Marco Sandonato is responsive, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and caring of his clients. It was truly a pleasure to have Marco as our attorney. He exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend him.

Excellent and forthright attorney
Marco was very helpful and told me exactly what to expect. He talked me through the procedure and was empathetic when I got a bit emotional. He was always on time, professional, and truly helpful to my case. His services were invaluable.

Knowledgeable, professional and highly recommended
I hired Marco to assist me with a landlord issue, as I was having difficulty leaving an intolerable living situation with a difficult and volatile landlord. Marco was extremely responsive, honest, and clear in his communication. He achieved an outcome that I was very pleased with and also helped ensure that my next lease was well laid out legally. In addition, beyond being professional and knowledgeable, he also demonstrates care and concern about the wellbeing of his clients and this quality is appreciated when dealing with difficult and unpleasant legal issues. He has exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend him.

Real Estate Sublease Matter
My personal experience with Marco was exactly what you'd want it to be. I contacted him, he gave me a fair and realistic expectation of how my case might go, and he got it DONE! I did not have to do any legwork (he did everything) and he got me a result that put me at great ease - I was extremely stressed but his advice and presence was absolutely critical. My issue was that I needed to disentangled my daughter from some sublease tenants and it was a delicate matter involving roommates. Of course, as a dad I wanted someone who was perfectly capable with no margin for error. Marco's charges are very reasonable, and I'm very happy that I worked with him though I had other options. In retrospect I would have done nothing differently, except perhaps called Marco earlier ! I realized that a great attorney can really go an incredibly long way. Marco also has the benefit of having a lot of incredible experience in the Boston Housing market. Marco is a great value and I personally am very happy that I dealt with him. I would not hesitate to recommend him, though I do have very high standards.
