Quincy police search resident's home, file multiple charges

Americans are protected under the U.S. Constitution against unreasonable searches by the police. Unfortunately, it can be all too easy for police to try to justify a search after the fact by alleging that they found something related to criminal activity.

2018 property tax bill has northeasterners scratching their heads

If you own or manage commercial real estate, you know there is always some tiny detail of property management that can easily get overlooked. The question is, will it get overlooked? With 2017 officially at a close and 2018 underway, it has brought lots of questions about the change in tax laws. While changes to the tax code were just revealed by President Trump, people are still unsure of how that will apply to commercial real estate owners and those who are thinking of negotiating a contract for the purchase or sale of a commercial property in 2018.

Buying a foreclosed home? Consider these potential problems first

You might have developed a passion for renovating and flipping a fixer-upper, or the foreclosed home you are considering is the home you have always dreamed of living in. The price might also be a dream come true, as foreclosed properties are often sold at a fraction of what you would usually pay. However, before you put down an offer on that bank-owned home you are considering, you need to understand the unique issues you can encounter when buying a foreclosed home in Massachusetts.

Including a special needs trust in an estate plan

When Quincy residents are beginning to plan for how their assets will one day be distributed among their heirs, there's a natural inclination to want to provide for those who need support the most. Those with children and grandchildren living with disabilities or special needs may include them in their estate planning by providing for a generous inheritance that will help cover their long-term care. But a direct distribution of funds may create more problems for an individual with special needs than it solves.

Car accident injuries can be significant and diverse

After a car accident it can be hard to know just how hurt a victim really is. It is not uncommon for their body to experience shock and, in some cases, a Massachusetts car accident victim may not be aware of an injury until hours or even days after their crash occurred. Because of this it is important that vehicle collision victims seek medical treatment immediately after experiencing a crash.

Potential lawsuits for small businesses

Building a startup takes intense research, preparation and fine-tuning. However, your work is not complete once your business is up and running successfully. Of course, there will always be continual improvements to make in all areas, but your real worry is litigation.
