Highly recommended attorney! Very professional, very informative. Overall I received a positive outcome in my case thanks to Bill.Mar 7, 2016
Bill represented me in a serious criminal matter in Massachusetts with passion and professionalism. He bluntly answered hard questions, was always supportive and understanding, created multiple legal strategies for my situation and clearly explained what was happening at every stage. He was recommended to me by another attorney in Worcester, and I am so glad that he was.Jan 21, 2016

- What types of customers have you worked with?We provide comprehensive legal solutions to individuals, families, and businesses in the Holden, Worcester County and greater Massachusetts area in a range of practice areas. When you have a legal problem or simply need legal advice, you can trust in our skills, experience and down-to-earth approach to effectively protect your rights and interests.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Far too many attorneys are far too inaccessible to their clients. Our firm is completely the opposite. We are diligent and tenacious, yet also down to earth and accessible. We will never use support staff as a way of keeping ourselves from our clients. Quite to the contrary, we know from experience the absolutely critical nature of having an attorney-client relationship based on effective communication and we pride ourselves on our accessibility to our clients.
