Civil Litigation

Unfortunately, sometimes situations arise when you need to seek legal help, to enforce a contract or a debt; to seek compensation for damages done to you, your family or your business; to protect your property or business interests, or conversely to defend against such civil claims brought against you.  For the past ten years, Attorney Michael B. Coyle has prosecuted and defended a large volume of such cases on behalf of both Plaintiffs and Defendants, in the District, Superior, and Federal Courts of Massachusetts, including:

  • Breach of Contract (Business or Personal/Individual)

  • Unfair/Deceptive Business Practices (Consumer Protection)

  • Creditor's Suits (Enforcing Judgments; Liens, Attachments)

  • Supplementary Process (Enforcement of Judgment Debts)

  • Summary Process (Evictions / Possession Claims)

  • Actions for an Accounting (R.E., Trusts, Partnerships, etc.)

  • Prosecuting and Defending Restraining Orders (G.L. 209A)

  • Harassment Prevention Orders (G.L. 258E)

  • Fiduciary Breach / Breach of Trust (Executors, Trustees, etc.)

  • Payment-of-Wages and Employment-Related Claims

  • Representation at Mediations and Arbitrations of Claims (ADR)
