Looking out my window, there are two black tupelo trees, each rather non-descript and scraggly – not much to look at. But come the later part of September, these two trees provide a brilliant show of bright red color on branches that seem almost invisible, suspending the foliage in a sort of anti-gravity display. They are the first serious sign of Fall, just before the rest of the yard goes to color. And even though the days are still warm, cold nights and raking leaves are just around the corner.
At Kraft Law Firm, I practice under the motto that "If it's a big deal to you, it means a great deal to me." My clients hire me because I am more than just their lawyer; I am their trusted advisor and confidant. I work tirelessly to put myself in their shoes and provide practical solutions to the issues they face and protect their interests.
Clients describe me as:
- Conscientious and
- Understanding of their situations.
I receive frequent praise because I am always available, very responsive and I keep them well informed. Including me on your team should help to reduce stress and relieve you from the legal burdens that might hold you back in your business and personal life.
Legal services can be expensive. I review my bills as though I would be the one who will be paying them – I want to be certain that the effort expended was justified and reasonable and that my invoice reflects that standard. As well, I work with my clients to find creative alternatives to hourly billing where appropriate, including flat fee, retainer and project-based billing.
If you are in need of counsel, or just not sure if a lawyer is required for your situation, please give me a call and take advantage of my initial consultation.
Your time is valuable. As a business owner, or someone trying to start new venture, you have more important things to do than worry about forming your entity, preparing contracts, negotiating leases, focusing on compliance and formulating shareholder agreements. My clients find these are a huge distraction. Let me serve as your trusted advisor and confidant to personally manage your legal concerns. Services include:
Whether you are investing in property or relocating your business, the purchase or lease contracts are critical to success. Real estate contracts and leases are lengthy, confusing and full of legal jargon. Problems large and small are common, such as title defects, inspection issues and misunderstandings about what amenities and services are included. Let me walk you through the process from start to finish. You will be informed and empowered.

Michael is my "go to" attorney that I turn to when I am in need of services for my clients. In addition, we have partnered together on each other's projects as well and I do enjoy working with him. My clients have been pleased with his services as they find him to be
thoughtful, caring, compassionate, conscientious and understanding of their situations. He always keeps me in the loop regarding my clients with open lines of communication and his communication skills allow for concise and timely resolutions of issues. Michael offers outside the box approaches when necessary to resolve issues that are complex and multidimensional. He is very thorough in his approach and considers all sides of an issue. Finally unlike many attorneys that are unreachable via phone and shy away from email, Michael is always accessible - a feature that I particularly enjoy since I also try to be as responsive and available to my clients and colleagues Michael does.

Here in Eastern Massachusetts, very commonly the brokers use the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) form, but there are others and some use their own standard forms. Do you really know what you are signing when you put your John or Jane Hancock on that offer? Is it safe?
