Civil Litigation

Although it is usually our goal to resolve disputes quickly, amicably and without great expense to our clients, Scafidi Juliano, LLP attorneys have experience representing businesses and individuals in legal matters that can only be resolved through the court system and through arbitration. We vigorously represent our clients in an aggressive, but cost efficient manner. We have experience trying cases and arguing substantive motions in the Massachusetts District and Superior Courts, as well as in Federal District Courts.

Business Litigation. Our firm represents business clients in matters arising from such areas as contractual disputes, commercial collections, insurance coverage, shareholder disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, commercial libel and slander, interference with contract, and fraud.

Employment Litigation. Our firm represents both employers and employees in matters involving such areas as: wrongful termination; gender, national origin, sexual orientation or race discrimination claims (including matters before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination); wage and overtime law violations; and covenants not to compete.

Real Estate Litigation. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing homeowners and builders/developers in litigation concerning the purchase, sale and management of both residential and commercial properties. In addition, the firm also represents clients in matters arising out of zoning, title and land use issues.

Landlord-Tenant Law.  We have several attorneys with extensive experience representing small and mid-sized landlords and property management companies in District and Housing Courts all over Massachusetts. The firm has both residential and commercial clients in this area of the law and we make a strong effort to keep costs as low as possible for our landlords/property management companies.

In addition to our litigation/trial work, the firm regularly represents clients with appellate matters.
