Winning the lottery is a dream come true, but without proper planning, it can quickly become a nightmare. In Massachusetts, major lottery prize winners are required to have their photos taken for promotional purposes, with these images appearing on the Massachusetts State Lottery website.

Why You Need To Hire A Lawyer If You Win The Lottery

Public exposure of your identity can lead to unwanted attention from relatives, neighbors, friends, and even strangers. For example, the winner of the largest single Power Ball prize in history made the mistake of immediately revealing herself at Lottery Headquarters in Braintree, leading to long-term security concerns.

Fortunately, Massachusetts allows lottery winners to claim their prizes through a trust. The trustee, who is the legal titleholder of the property within the trust, can claim the prize on behalf of the winner, keeping the winner’s identity confidential. In this scenario, the trustee’s photo is the one displayed on the lottery website.

Our firm has successfully represented lottery winners, including clients who value their privacy to the extent that they don’t even inform their own children.
