I dealt with Attorney Palmucci a while back, when I was having a dispute with a prior employer. Although legal action did not escalate any further than a warning letter, I had a great experience with Mr. Palmucci. He promptly responded to all my questions with intelligent, articulate advice, and I found him to be very professional. Massachusetts General Laws are not exactly material for leisure reading, nor are they remotely decipherable by the average population. Mr. Palmucci quickly interpreted the legal wording into a coherent explanation that anyone could understand. In every communication I had with him, he went above and beyond what I had even asked him for. It's clear to me he really cares about his clients, no matter how small the issue. In the end, I got exactly what I needed from my employer, and his advice was spot-on. Would definitely recommend.

Mr. Palmucci did a wicked good job with my case. I figured I was going to break my back to pay for someone but Mr. Palmucci's prices were more than reasonable. He's a good guy too. I hadn't needed a lawyer before so I didn't know what I was doing but he helped me through it and he won my case. Great lawyer

I want to take this opportunity to publicly express my gratitude to Attorney Joe Serpa. I found myself researching attorneys for a family member and saw among others Attorney Serpa here on Thumbtack. I read all the info provided on his site, did some personal research and decided he was the attorney that could best meet our needs. I am very happy that I did for a variety of reasons.Upon consulting with him I immediately felt at ease and knew I made the right decision to go with him to represent my family member. He made us feel comfortable, answered all our questions, was straight forward with us and did not offer any empty guarantees or promises. He immediately told us to call him Joe,provided me with his prices, gave us his personal cell# and gave me all the information we needed to make our decision in regards to how we wanted to go forward with our case. Throughout the entire process he was always available and kept us informed of all proceedings. He also made sure we understood each aspect of the case and court rulings and was always well prepared. After about 5 months into the case he let us know on the last court date that the case got dismissed! What a relief to us all and then just today informed us that the last motion that he presented was granted! Again a win! Thanks to his diligent efforts throughout this entire process, I say with much conviction that he truly is an extraordinary attorney, but more importantly an extraordinary and genuine person. He calmed our fears and instilled a sense of relief during this process which I can honestly say was needed.I knew we made the right decision from the start. His honesty,his professionalism and his responsiveness to all our needs were met on every level and I truly am impressed with his work. I am grateful to him and am so glad we chose him to walk us through this difficult time. He is a true professional in every aspect and we are eternally indebted to him. Thank you Joe for all your work, assistance and for winning our case! Teresa R. and family

This was by far the best legal experience one could hope for! Attorney Serpa was diligent in responding to my needs. When you ask him a question his responses and thoughts are expressed in a very clear and concise manner. He prevented a life changing event from negatively impacting my life. If you have any criminal issues, problems or charges or anything, you really should call Joe Serpa. He is one of the few attorneys’ that I know who will give you their cell phone number and take calls and text at any hour day or night. Thank you Joe!

Still have an open case with her. After our first meeting I'm very happy with my decision to hire her as my attorney. She is very professional and easy to keep in contact with for any needs you may require. Also she is very sympathetic and will guide you down whichever approach you are willing to take on your matter. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who seeks a professional defense attorney.

Michelle was hands down the most responsive attorney I spoke with during my search. She immediately invited me to her office and begin to build a profile for the case. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and determined to have the case dismissed. I would, and already have, highly recommended her to others.

After talking to Trevor Clement he said I didn't need an attorney yet since there wasn't any paperwork filed against me in my boyfriends divorce. He was polite, knowledgeable, professional, and instead of just taking my money right away he told me to wait for paperwork. He also offered to help my boyfriend find an attorney that would fit his needs during this divorce and to talk to him free of charge.

Trevor sought me out when I was wrongly deemed to be indigent, and did not qualify for counsel. He then proceeded to single-handedly keep me out of jail with a solid, impassioned defense. I owe Trevor everything and I couldn't recommend him more highly.

When my estranged, soon to be ex-wife had me arrested for Domestic Assault and filed a restraining order against me, causing me to become homeless with a mortgage, I knew I was going to need a good Defense Attorney. My Divorce Attorney recommended Atty. Thomas Martin. I had interviewed 3 other attorneys but Tom instilled the most confidence and the most reasonable price. The day of the trial, they impaneled 5 women, 1 man, and 1 man alternate. Tom easily revealed my wife's motives to the jury and caught her in several lies. The jury deliberated for 10 minutes and came back with a verdict of " Not Guilty ". Thanks Tom. I will continue to recommend you to anyone in need of Criminal Defense. K.M. Lowell

Hired Rich for misunderstanding out of Woburn Court. My error was not hiring him for Show Cause hearing. He was great, quickly got matter dismissed, no costs, and I can get it sealed in a few months. He was great through entire process and as retired police officer really has inside line on how best to approach things. He's a true gentleman.

I discussed a civil matter with Joseph B Simons and he explained the different courses of action that i could take and the possible outcomes. He is a good listener and he addressed my questions. I wasn't asking him to represent me in court but the legal proscesses and avenues open regarding my situation. His answers were clear and to the point and he even told me of recent legal changes in the law relevant to my case. I can see that he is by nature, a friendly person who likes to help people. Even though, my case was not a criminal one he was still very helpful in his clear explanation of the legal aspects of my situation. I have confidence in him. He genuinely wants to help and makes himself available. He respects his client and tries to understand what the client wants and then explains the law and advises his client so that the client feels he is really working together with someone who wants him to understand his choices. I have had experiences with many lawyers and have often felt that they were more interested in making a quick easy buck than really helping me. I have exceptional confidence and trust in Joseph B Simons sincere desire to be helpful. His willingness and clarity in explaining things demostrates his knowledge and mastery of the law. I had done clerical work as a legal technician and I can recognize and appreciate Joe's expertise in law. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
