Law Office of
Patricia A. McArdle & Associates, PC
Property Law/Real Estate Transactions
We represent buyers and sellers of real estate, both residential and commercial properties, from the initial review and drafting of offers to purchase, purchase and sales agreements, and asset purchase agreements through the completion of the real estate transaction. Unlike other firms, we conduct our own title searches which expedites the closing process and we draft Declarations of Homestead at no cost to you!
We also have extensive experience in handling all types of other real estate matters, such as short sales, foreclosures, boundary disputes, title issues, condo conversions, zoning issues and property development. Our law firm truly offers "one stop" shopping for all of your real estate related legal needs in Massachusetts.
We take care to provide our customers high quality services personalized for their unique needs.
We provide family law mediation in those instances where parties believe that they can reach an agreement with the assistance of a legal advocate who provides insight on the rights and obligations of parties under the law of Massachusetts. If mediation is not possible, we advocate for our clients in Court actions that involve all types of litigation which includes: divorce, paternity, child support and custody, visitation, contempts, adoptions, guardianship and conservatorships .
We don't just "fight the fight" for our clients. We help them form a strategic plan that points them in a direction that meets their goals in an efficient and effective manner.
We assist business people in drafting contracts; forming partnerships and other legal entities; negotiating leases; managing and evicting residential and commercial tenants; developing land; refinancing operations; creating employment policies, contracts, and non-competition agreements; and managing all manner of legal issues that can affect business operations. Whatever the needs of your business, our business lawyers are experienced and capable.
Estate Planning and Probate Law
A well thought out estate plan is a gift to your loved ones, making their lives easier at a time of great sadness and minimizing the burdens which the probate process puts on families. While most understand the importance of having an estate plan in place, many people overestimate the difficulty of putting in place such a plan, or do not know where to start.
The purpose of planning now is to avoid probate and to give peace of mind by protecting your assets and the financial security of your loved ones. When the worst happens, not having the proper documents in place could cause undue grief and expense to loved ones and expose your property to tax and debt collection. We provide comprehensive estate planning documents including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies and other health related documents.
We also help our clients during times of tragedy and crises to navigate their ways through the Probate Court when they need to file for Guardianship, Conservertship or to probate estates.
