As a business owner in Massachusetts, your business will no doubt inevitably find itself in a contract dispute with another party at some point over the course of the business’ life. To be sure, businesses must form contracts with various parties in order to successfully conduct operations, including employees, contractors, vendors, and other businesses; internal contracts between partners and shareholders typically exist, too.
Workplace injuries are incredibly common. In fact, in 2017, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were approximately 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry employers. While workers in any industry may be at risk of an injury, those in manufacturing, construction, healthcare, logging, and trash collection are most vulnerable.
In addition to planning a burial, funeral, or another memorial service after the death of a loved one, family members are also tasked with dividing up the decedent’s benefits and assets and distributing them amongst beneficiaries.

At the law offices of Deborah Gold-Alexander, Attorney at Law, our experienced probate attorney can guide you through the probate process and represent your best interests.
