Residential Real Estate

GM attorneys help buyers and sellers successfully complete home and condominium transactions, and represent banks and mortgage companies in title matters. We review purchase and sales agreements and closing documents, provide advice on contracts and inspection issues, conduct the closing, make sure all proceeds are properly paid out and accounted for, establish clear title to the property, and even recommend financing options. Our online services speed the closing process, eliminate costly mistakes, and simplify life for buyers, sellers, agents and lenders.

Commercial Real Estate

We bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table during each and every commercial real estate transaction. In a recent readers' poll conducted by the Banker & Tradesman, GM was voted top commercial closing law firm. GM attorneys represent clients engaged in the purchase, sale, and lease of commercial properties ranging from office buildings and shopping malls to public buildings and health clubs. GM is a members of the American Land Title Association and the Real Estate Bar Association of Massachusetts.

Business Representation

Since its inception, GM has helped small and medium-sized businesses protect their assets and comply with tax and government regulations. Our attorneys can provide advice on corporate law matters, enforce your rights as a creditor to get you paid, help you choose the right business entity for incorporation, protect your trademarks and service marks, and more.

Loan Workouts

Drawing on an in-depth knowledge of real estate financing, GM lawyers often take on the challenge of restructuring troubled real estate projects. In some cases, our loan workout and bankruptcy experts represent financial institutions looking to protect their loans and other interests. In other cases, we are appointed by the court as a trustee to supervise failing enterprises. Because we have experience on both sides of these difficult transactions, we are able to successfully negotiate agreements that meet the business objectives of our clients and bring the matter to a mutually acceptable resolution.

Secured Lending

GM represents lenders, borrowers and investors in a wide range of financing transactions secured by real estate and other assets. These include loans for property acquisition, development and construction, loan workouts, refinancing, sales of loan portfolios, conduit financing, and debt and equity structuring projects. We also handle municipal finance transactions including tax-exempt and tax increment bond transactions for major public and private projects.

Our attorney with Gilmartin Magence (Angelica Gonzalez) was very thorough and of great help with our closing. Could have been more responsive particular in the final hours leading up to closing, we would have appreciated more time to review the HUD-1 statement (at least a full 24 hours). Otherwise no complaints and would happily recommend.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
