With personal injury claims, experience makes all the difference.  We deal with these insurance companies on a daily basis, and the relationships we have established with them truly makes a difference in the offers made.  All lawyers are NOT the same.  We have successfully handled over 30,000 claims in our history – everything from small little fender bender cases to multi-million dollar brain injury cases, and everything in between.  Our website has dozens of testimonials of satisfied clients as well as attorneys who have referred personal injury matters to us.  We conduct seminars regularly to other attorneys in the field of personal injury law for the Massachusetts Bar Association, various law schools, and other continuing education courses.  Our record truly does speak for itself.

"Megan was awesome and very personable. She's really hands-on and will go to bat for you. She genuinely cares and took on the case as if it were her own. Megan always got back to me in a timely manner and took the time to explain everything. I felt like she had a good handle on everything. She also kept me updated at least once a week. She took on the insurance company and was able to get me the settlement I deserved."

"This company has an amazing group of people all working together to help me get approved for disability. They always took the time to talk to me, keep me updated and encourage me when I got down. I would recommend this company to everyone and anyone looking for a great attorney's office. They made me feel valued and encouraged that I would win this. I suffered for a long time thinking it was an injury. Then after months of trying to work again I finally decided to listen to my doctor and realize this would be life long. Lynne made me feel better every time we talked. She was always concerned with how I felt and was very sympathetic. I cannot thank all of you enough for taking and winning my case. It may not have seemed like much to you but it meant the world to me and you always made me feel like my case was the most important to you. Thank you for being there."

"Attorney Pope and Lynne were very thorough and took care of everything so I didn't have to stress about it. For someone like me, that's a god send. They were really nice, I felt like I didn't do anything other than sign paperwork. They kept in touch with me weekly. It was effortless. The fact that I was able to do everything via phone or email was great."

"I'm not very fluent in English but I could understand Megan. She explained how things would go and what would happen next and how long things would take.r r The first thing and most important thing Megan stressed was that I need to get better first. She was able to talk to my employer in order to get paid leave.r r I don't wish to have another accident but if I did I wouldn't use anyone else. If someone else was looking for somebody to represent them I would recommend the firm. Megan in particular.r r She responded to my messages, my emails, my phone calls immediately or the next day. Communication is very important and she was number one when it came to that.r r I didn't think I would get a coin from the accident. She was able to represent me until I got something. I didn't think I would be able to be compensated for missing work but she was able to get me that.r r She was able to communicate with me throughout the process. Even when I was impatient she was able to set expectations about wait times. She was very frank. She wouldn't beat around the bush."
