"When I fell in that supermarket and knew I had broken my leg, one of the first things that went through my mind was, "How am I ever going to take on a company this size and receive any decent compensation for what's happened to me?" Because of you, I received a sizable settlement payment for my injury. I hope more people learn about the kind of legal talent you offer."

"The act of placing my father in a nursing home was, up to that time, probably the most painful decision I've ever had to face. But when I learned that he had been attacked by another patient who had a background of mental illness, and that the nursing home never checked out this patient's background, I was beyond grief. You took our case on, and you and your associates fought the owners of this business, tooth and nail. You never gave up. As a result, my father's estate was paid considerable money for his pain and suffering, and equally important, the corporation running the nursing home has undertaken precautionary measures to make sure this never happens again to another patient."

"My whole life changed on a dark day in December 1989, when I was hit and pinned against a wall by a commercial delivery truck. I was almost DOA at the hospital Emergency Room. Because of my injuries, I cannot work full-time ever again. Because of you and your colleagues' work, I received so large a settlement that I will not suffer due to lack of income for the rest of my life."

"When my mother was taken to an Emergency Room for a broken hip she suffered in a fall that broke her hip, and the hospital doctors there, who we assumed would check her out thoroughly. We were wrong: My mother had suffered a heart attack in the fall, and the hospital doctors completely missed this in her vital signs and EKG. After treating her for her hip fracture, they discharged her without ever following up on her cardiac tests, which clearly showed her heart attack. My mother died the next day, and she didn't have to. But because of your diligence and talent, her estate received a very large settlement payment, along with revised ER protocol to prevent such errors in the future. For my mother and future patients, we thank you for what you did for her."

"When our son was hit by a car in a crosswalk, our one and only concern was his recovery and well-being. Once we were convinced that he would recover, we had to turn our attention to legal matters, and we had no idea what we were facing: A maze of obstacles put up in our path by the insurance company for the driver who hit our son, and their lawyers - all denying responsibility for the accident. If we hadn't had you by our side, we feel we would have been eaten alive by this insurance company's lawyers. You guided us from day one, and you never rested. The settlement you obtained for us has been invested for our son, and will one day help pay for his college tuition. Thank you."
- Bob and Mary J., Walpole
"There are two things that I will never forget about my car accident: The sound of screeching tires just before my car was hit by the other driver, and, much later, the sound of you telling me that the entire ordeal was over with, and that I was going to receive just compensation for my injuries. The rest, I want to forget - but I'll never forget you and what you did for me."
- Karen D., Dedham
"You know what impressed me most about you (aside from your legal talent)? I know that my injuries from my car accident weren't the worst that you had in front of you - my case was far from the biggest case in your office - but you represented me like my case was worth a million dollars. I can't thank you enough."
- Margaret G., Brookline
"When we sustained damage at our house due to a fire and our homeowners' insurance company denied almost half the claim, we were stunned. We had been loyal customers for over ten years, and not once did we ever file a previous claim. Then, after ten years of paying them premiums, when we needed them, they denied our claim! If we hadn't had you by our side to step in, we would have been at their mercy, and out thousands and thousands of dollars. Instead, you took them on, and sued them for 'unfair and deceptive claims practices' (something we had never heard of before.) You won our case, saved us an enormous amount of money, and taught them a lesson. That was priceless, and you were worth many times your fee."
- Harry and Emily H., Millis
"No one ever figures they'll be the victim of identity theft, and suddenly it happened to me. Beyond the initial shock, the worst result was that the credit card companies and credit reporting agencies were reporting that it was me - not the thief who stole my identity - who had defaulted on all the bogus credit accounts opened in my name. I spent months trying to deal with these banks and credit agencies, trying to convince them that it was not me who opened these accounts and defaulted on them, and begging them to clear my credit reporting record. I must have called at least fifty people, and spent tens of hours on the phone - all to no avail. I was at my wit's end. When my friend suggested I call you, it was the best thing that ever happened to me surrounding this nightmare. Because of the tough stance you took against these banks and credit reporting agencies, I finally got my name and credit history cleared up. I can't thank you enough for all that you did for me."
- Chris C., Walpole
"Putting together our wills was not exactly the most appealing thing on our "To Do" list. We had put off doing it for a long time because we thought it would be so tedious and unpleasant. But you made it easy and nowhere nearly as difficult as we thought. Thank you very much."
- Dan and Betty D., Pembroke
"Buying our house was the biggest financial decision we'd ever made. Once we'd done it, we thought we could breathe a sigh of relief. We never thought our neighbor would claim that he had an easement over our property- and we never thought we'd end up in court over the matter. You guided us through all the legal issues and court process, and won our case for us. Our property has greater market value as a result and we enjoy more privacy. We're grateful we had you as our lawyer, and would recommend you to anyone needing a sharp legal advocate."
