I am a landlord in Worcester, and I had a tenant related matter that required immediate attention. I had heard great things about John Elloian, so I gave the Worcester Law Group a call. From the moment John and I spoke, he made my issue his priority and treated me with a great deal of respect. He made himself available after the office was closed to meet with me, and my family, to discuss our case. During our meeting he was highly personable, understanding, and clearly wanted to help me and my family. John made my problem, his problem, and I felt a great deal of comfort in his confidence.

My tenant and I disagreed over their rights in living on my property, and in asking another lawyer questions on what to do, they suggested I call John Elloian, "as he was the best lawyer in Massachusetts for landlords with tenant issues." that was the best advice I have had in years, as I met with John, we discussed my issues, and he explained the law, the court system and the probable outcomes and asked what I wanted to get out of all this. He made me feel at ease and I hired him. All I had to do was wait while he took care of everything and he kept me informed of his actions, the timeframes and answered all questions. When we went to court, he asked me again what result I wanted, and helped negotiate a settlement I felt good about. [...] Thanks John, you were fair, upfront and reasonable in cost. Phil

I would never be able to say enough positive things about our experience working with Attorney Elloian! He assisted with our eviction of a nightmare tenant before additional damage to my Grandmother's Rental Property resulted. He is incredibly responsive, even though our process was during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. We always felt that we were his top focus, and will now be using his services to ensure future tenant relationships and leases are handled correctly!
