Not only is Mark very professional he is also calm, relaxing and very approachable!! Buying a house is very challenging especially in today’s market but from the get go I knew Mark was our man!!!.
He is fast in responding to any questions -no waiting around. All contracts were executed on time!! As a realtor that is important to me. On the closing day my buyers were made to feel relaxed . The atmosphere was upbeat and happy. I can truly say it was a great pleasure to have worked with Mark
I have already recommended him many times.
If you are looking for the lawyer who defies all the lawyer jokes with his honesty, his meticulous attention to detail and his thoroughly ethical approach to everything he does, Mark is your man. I have been a client now and then ever since he worked for the guy who sold me my house almost 30 years ago. He has handled Real Estate, Loans and the purchase of my son’s business. Whenever I have a friend in Massachusetts who is looking for a lawyer, I send him or her to Mark.
Mark was instrumental in closing two real estate properties which both incurred a few issues with each transaction. Mark quickly resolved the issues to prevent any delays and frustration on my part. His team at his firm made it easy to do business with. Knowledgeable. Professional. Friendly. Thank you!
Mark’s name showed up in my Legal Hyatt program lawyer list and his office is local. So I started emails asking for some information. To my surprise, he responded in a second. Then he patiently sent me simple and straight answers in later emails. I like him immediately. So we had worked with Mark on both purchase and sale transactions this summer. During entire transactions, he was still responsive 24/7 via email.
The first was the purchase of a new condo. The second was the sale of our existing house. Both transactions went extremely well, in no small part, to Mark’s experienced hand and calm demeanor. His staff is also very friendly, knowledgeable, responsive and professional. They sent me emails with detailed step by step instructions, and follow up on me. I would absolutely hire him again and would advise my friends to use him in their real estate deals.
Mark Scheier is a professional with skills and integrity of the highest quality. It is without reservation that I give him my highest unqualified recommendation. Over the years, he has exclusively represented me and members of my family in local real estate and family transactions. In my 30 years as a finance professional, I have dealt with hundreds of attorneys; and I can say without equivocation that Mark has outstanding negotiating skills that are only secondary to his ability to quickly grasp a situation and then make recommendations that truly represent the clients’ best interests in a win-win, cost-effective scenario.
As an example, in a recent extremely complicated real estate situation, Mark was able to coordinate and shepherd to a successful conclusion a transaction that involved realtors, other attorneys, planning board members, and buyers and sellers – all with seemingly different objectives. This sizeable transaction literally “fell apart” several times, and only through Mark’s tenacity and skills was it possible to bring the parties back together by finding enough common ground to close the deal.
I worked with attorney Scheier on a number of real estate cases, and Mark always demonstrated a capacity for stepping back and seeing the bigger picture of the situation. He then was able to act on that perspective with complete command for a positive outcome for all involved.
Attorney Scheier is the consummate professional. He made my transaction as seamless as possible and was extremely personable to work with. I would highly recommend his real estate work to anyone.
My wife and I have always experienced sound and thoughtful advice from Atty. Epstein and would recommend her to others for estate planning work.
There isn’t a situation that Mark can’t resolve. Between his knowledge and humor Mark will work hard to protect his clients. Mark works with many of my clients and I have personally worked with him in several transactions. I highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a Real Estate Attorney.
Mark has done mortgage loan closings for my company since 2012. He and his staff are always extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. Mark is also very responsive to phone calls and emails, often returning messages after hours and even on weekends and Holidays. We have been very happy with his work and plan to continue to use him for future closings.
Attorney Scheier was great to have as part of our home-buying team. He is friendly, reasonable, thorough, and helped everything run smoothly. We had the closing at his office, which is very child-friendly! We had our toddler there and everyone made us feel welcome. The office staff and Attorney Scheier were great at communicating and prompt at addressing a few changes that needed to be made on the HUD-1 form.
Home Buyer - Acton, MA
I engaged Mike to help me with a real estate closing. Throughout the process of purchasing my first home, out of all of the professionals I engaged (mortgage broker, realtor, and attorney), Mike was by far the strongest. I am a Certified Financial Planner and hold anybody that I hire to help me with professional services to an extremely high standard. Mike fulfilled expectations and more. He brought experience to a process that was new to me. In addition to expertise and guidance from the normal legal components like purchase and sale and closing he also provided advise on negotiation tactics, appraisals, and property in general that are outside the range of real estate law.
Some months later, when my previous landlord was wrongfully withholding my security deposit, Mike told me to ask her for a bank statement for the legally required, separate account she was required to set up for holding of the security deposit. She did not have one. Mike advised me that I could sue her for treble damages and legal fees for the entire amount. I made her aware of this law. She sent the funds immediately.
Home Buyer - Boston, MA
After our children were born, we knew we needed to prepare a will and do our estate planning but it felt like a daunting task so we kept postponing it. When we moved to Acton almost 20 years ago, we contacted Barbara Epstein to help us with this project. She did an excellent job explaining the alternatives and guiding us through the process. As our circumstances and the laws have changed over the years, Barbara has kept our documents in sync with our final wishes. Our children are now grown and Barbara has helped us update the documents yet again to reflect our current situation. Barbara has always been patient, clear and knowledgeable. These characteristics are very important when you are making decisions about events that you hope will never take place. She has done an excellent job for us.

As the owner of a small boutique consulting firm, I am extremely fortunate to have Michael Katin as general counsel, with Scheier Katin & Epstein behind him. Michael has provided timely, expert, and cost-effective counsel on numerous matters over the last 8 years. He has a broad reach, leveraging expertise when required. Michael has reviewed myriad corporate contracts, helped me negotiate a sensitive tenant termination agreement, and continued to advise me in connection with securing litigation counsel when I was deposed as an expert compensation witness twice for a client. The results were excellent on all fronts. In addition to the above, his customer focused, high integrity work ethic is second to none.
