About Dennis

Learn Dennis’s areas of practice.

I look forward to trying to identify unique solutions to complex real estate and corporate opportunities or problems that individuals and businesses find themselves facing.

 

Sometimes opportunities require both legal guidance and protection as well as capital formation and business expertise. Our attorneys have a solid base of MBA, accounting, engineering, and computer science educational backgrounds to supplement their legal experience and expertise so that they can bring a broader perspective to those opportunities.

 

Sometimes problems are self inflicted and other times they come completely from external circumstances. Therefore the firm that I started focuses on strategic solutions not judging the individual or the business. 

 

Our firm expects each employee to be empathetic to to our clients circumstance, cordial in our dealings with all parties and approach all engagements with integrity, realism and a committment to clear communications. We want the opportunity to serve your interests.

Skilled and Caring Attorney
Dennis Breen saved our home when the paperwork from previous owner was found to be incorrect and a second mortgage company that we were unaware of sent us an Eviction Notice due to the fact the Second was in default.. It was a very messy situation as well as most stressful and Mr Breen saved our home and spared us having to move again. Mr Breen has also been a reliable and most capable attorney while dealing with our business affairs for over thirty years.

Very thankful for Dennis Breen and his incredible staff....
I've had the pleasure to have Mr. Dennis Breen III as my lawyer and his incredible staff assist me with a difficult journey. I came to Mr. Breen to assist me regarding a commercial property lawsuit. Throughout this long process Mr. Breen was on my side from day one. With that being said, he followed through to the very end with me and for this I am incredibly thankful. To have someone like Dennis Breen believe in you and guide you the best way a lawyer could was beyond my expectations. He and his incredible staff have exceed my expectations! I would not hesitate to have him on my side again and no one else should for that matter! Thank you Dennis for your hard work and sincere efforts to guide me and support me throughout these past few years. And many thanks to the incredible staff on your team who made it possible!

Probate
Dennis was suppose to send me some papers to fill out that would explain and the process of the court, via emai.. I never heard from him again. I agree that the chances are slim, but my sister called yesterday, and said the other sister said the same thing. so all the siblings except the my brother who is the executor agree that the estate should be divided in a share and share alike as my mother stated in her will. If it was possible to file the papers myself I Would but I am disabled and on home care with a palliative care team of Nurses and Homemakers and bath aides which limits my mobility greatly

Response from Dennis Breen September 21, 2015
It is sometime confusing for people who contact our firm that we must be retained to represent them and initiate conflicts checks before we can take on advising them on a specific case . To do that requires obtaining the necessary information from them. In any first contact we attempt to make as clear as possible that in order to provide strategic advise we need to address the actual situation and not hypothetical scenarios.
