Reviews & Testimonials

Had a great experience working with Matt Byrnes at DaMore Law. He and Charlene McGowan made both our real estate transactions easy and efficient.. We had accelerated timelines on both the sale of our old home and purchase of the new, and they were able to get everything lined up without hitch and making sure all important concerns were thought out.

I worked with Matthew Byrnes and he made my first time buying a home as seamless as it could be.  As a first time buyer, Matt and the rest of the DaMore Law family alleviated a lot of the stress when buying a home.  They will always be my go to Law Firm going forward!

The DaMore Law Team went above and beyond to see us through all the stress and struggles of selling our home.  Caroline and Matthew make an excellent team.  We can’t thank you enough for your professionalism and patience, you made us feel so safe and secure.  It was always a pleasure to speak to Caroline and she was on top of every detail of the transaction.  Matthew protected our interests and made sure we were not being taken advantage of.  We will be back when we are ready to purchase our next home.  Thank you so much!

Fast, friendly and knowledgeable service.  This was my second closing with Matthew Byrnes and probably not my last!

Elaine M.

We worked with the Law Offices of Peter T. DaMore, Jr, more specifically with Matthew Byrnes in navigating the laws of rental in Massachusetts with a difficult case and later in selling property in Massachusetts.

Matthew went regularly above and beyond the call of duty, making sure to keep us informed of our options at all steps of the way and helping us decide the best next steps. I cannot stress enough how helpful he was during this whole process. I would definitely refer friends and family to him, as well as work with him again if the need ever arose.

I whole heartedly recommend the people at the Law Offices of Peter T. DaMore, especially Matt Byrnes who handled our closing after a rather complicated situation arose. He and his firm were thoughtful, patient and persistent. I really enjoyed working with this firm. I highly recommend this firm for all legal issues that they cover. We were very satisfied!

Damore Law handed the closings for both my condo sale and new property purchase, as part of a 1031 exchange. They could not have been more helpful. It was my first 1031 and I was anxious throughout the entire process that I would make a mistake that would nullify the exchange. They patiently answered my many (many!) questions, they were extremely responsive, and they worked seamlessly with my mortgage company and qualified intermediary to make sure there were no hiccups. Matt Byrnes and Charlene McGowan were top notch — not to mention just really nice people! — and I look forward to working with them again when I find my next investment property. I highly recommend Damore Law.

Wilmington, MA

Worked with Mathew Byrnes and Devon Sullivan. Very professional and pleasure to work with. Got the selling property paperwork work done in very short period of time. Communication was very timely and punctual. Impressed with their professionalism. We were both out of the state and that didn’t hinder the process at all. It was pleasure to work with both of them. I can not thank you enough for their help and professional work that they provided.

Ashvinkumar P.

As my first time trying to sell my condo turned into a legal nightmare, I was not hopeful that my second try would work out well. Glad to say that I was wrong! I did a FSBO and things could not have gone more smoothly and quickly – we closed in 6 weeks! Attorney Byrnes and Charlene were great in communicating information timely and keeping the process moving. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a real estate attorney.


Matt & Rebecca helped us as we closed on our condo recently. We appreciated their swift responses, professionalism, and help navigating some negotiations that required nuance. Updated 5/2022: We just sold a property with Matt (& this time Charlene), and again we appreciated their support in the process.

I recently became a first time homebuyer (condo in Peabody) and I cannot say enough good things about this law office, especially Peg Higgins and Matt Byrnes. I had heard many horror stories regarding closing, but none of them applied thanks to these two. Thank you so much!!!!
