Counselors to Small Business

and Families

Welcome to Shoffner & Associates
Shoffner & Associates provides a wonderful thing for Boston. That is — excellent legal representation.

After ten years of owning and operating her own company, Freya Shoffner gave up her search for a good lawyer for her small business and her family. She went to law school with the goal of building a law firm that could take care of a small business' every legal need. She also wanted that firm to give all types of families the best representation possible.

Shoffner & Associates advises small start-up businesses in business planning, entity selection, and other formation issues. They help their established business clients with business litigation, tax, trademark and copyright advice, and they provide outstanding support in succession planning, estate planning, business transfers and sales, and dissolution.

Now, more than ever, your company and your family need the help of experienced lawyers who know how to get the job done the right way — the first time.

Don't wait. Call us.

Your Unclaimed Property

You might have more money or assets than you realize. There is currently approximately $2.4 billion in unclaimed property in Massachusetts. These lost funds are held indefinitely or until the original owners or heirs claim them. Unclaimed property includes unclaimed financial assets such as bank accounts, life insurance policies, pension funds, stocks, unpaid wages, uncashed dividends, uncashed checks, safe deposit boxes, and more. These assets are deemed unclaimed typically after 3 years have passed without any activity with the asset and when the owner has not successfully been contacted by the holder of the asset.

Snow and Ice Removal – Who's Responsible?

You are in Massachusetts and there has been a snowstorm. Who is responsible for the cleanup? According to a 2010 Supreme Judicial Court decision all Massachusetts property owners are under a legal obligation to keep their property free from dangerous snow and ice. In addition to requirements to clear private property of snow and ice many towns and cities have passed ordinances requiring owners to clear public and private sidewalks.

Remarriage and Social Security

A change in marital status often changes the Social Security benefits you receive. The changes are dependent on whether your benefits are based on your or your former spouse's work record. Your age and disability status impacts changes to your benefits as well.
