We also represent many people referred to us by other attorneys in Massachusetts, throughout the United States, and internationally. Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I recently concluded a divorce case involving a mid- term length marriage of a couple in a high income bracket who also owned substantial assets. My client was the care provider of three young children and the other party was the income producer. I was able to obtain a just and fair settlement for my client while at the same time respecting the dignity of both sides throughout the process. My client later posted the following recommendation:“From the moment I met Paul Bishop, I knew I was in the right place. I knew I had found the right attorney for me. Overnight, I had become the single mom of three young children and he never lost sight of the enormity of my responsibilities. He listened to my needs as a single mom and always negotiated with those needs in mind. Paul Bishop was successful in obtaining a divorce agreement that was exactly what I needed (and what I was owed) for my family and me. I am forever grateful for his guidance throughout thisprocess and his unwavering professionalism.” For obvious reasons, I was very proud ofmy work in that case.

In another case, I was able to gain a substantial settlement for a client as a result of a slip and fall accident. The case presented significant challenges with regard to establishing liability; however, my client was a young woman who had sustained devastating injuries and she needed help. I was eventually able to obtain a significant financial recovery on her behalf. She later wrote: “Paul was very thorough and responsive to my calls and e-mails, and took the time to explain every aspect of the case to me as I went through this difficult time. He was genuinely concerned about my condition and the care I received in the many surgeries and therapies I required after my accident, even after the case was settled. Paul did absolutely everything he could to help me receive a fair and just settlement. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Paul Bishop and his firm.” In that case, I was very pleased that my client was received a large award for the injuries she sustained.

How did you build a successful practice?
Certainly, hard work is an essential ingredient to the building a successful law practice. I try to live by this formula every day. There are no shortcuts to hard work, but the results are always worth the effort.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Fit, integrity and experience.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge helps, but does not determine who wins. The lawyer/client team that is the best prepared almost always wins. Of course, winning has to be defined as follows: The lawyer knowing the law and understanding what to expect, the client accepting the range of possibilities as explained to him/her by the lawyer and then settling or obtaining an award from the court that is favorable based upon the range of possibilities.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
In the initial phone conversation I can obtain two critical pieces of information. First, I am able to solicit the basic factual information concerning the case to determine whether I might be able to help the potential client. Second, I can assess whether the potential client and I are a “fit”. If the answer is yes to both of the questions and if the client is interested, we then schedule a free in office consultation.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
The client should be prepared to talk about the case and should have most of the relevant information readily available before the consult begins. If a client is unprepared or does not have the critical information needed before the call starts, I quickly lose interest.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Helping others in need and getting paid as part of the process.
