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

I'm so glad that I picked Attorney Richard Mable among the crowd of over 200+ other lawyers in Boston. His legal fee was very humble but his work was beyond the expectation. I live in Alabama but the divorce case filled & resolved in Boston. I have never met Mr. Mable but he fights for me aggressively. He spent lot of time on the phone with me for details then brought them up for a good deal resolution before going to the court. He saves my life, my time and especially the "peace of mind" afterward. I'd recommend you to meet with him so he can help you when needed. Thank you so much Attorney Richard Mable. God bless you.

I would highly recommend Kotoni Law Offices attorney Gazion Kotoni to anyone who is looking for a competent, compassionate and highly motivated lawyer. Gazion was highly professional and extremely accommodating in my bankruptcy case. I never felt like I was “just another client”. With my past financials and stress over the matter, Gazion took the burden of getting everything for my case ready along with his requests of information. Gazion then took the necessary requirements to make the bankruptcy experience painless, friendly and very affordable. I would also like to say thanks for continuing to serve me even after my bankruptcy [and] continue sending myself updates and e-mails which is a very personal touch. Kind Regards, Myke-

I hired Attorney Merritt last November for a criminal defense case. It was the best decision I could have made. Steve was prompt, thorough, and professional. He got me through a very difficult time. He is now working with me on a family situation. This is a much slower process I am being kept up to date as necessary. By the way, Kristin is awesome, too.

I'll let you be the judge of Attorney Bombay, here's how my agreement for the Job with him went: I extended my need for a contract out to thumbtack.com for an upcoming business venture with another party. Jeremy was the first to respond to me and quoted me at $175 an hour, please see 'Bombard1' for the snippet of the conversation. Thinking this was a reasonable price, I agree to hire Jeremy for the contract. I then get sent a 'Fee Agreement' which has a clause that the 'Client agrees to pay $500 as an initial retainer', please see attached 'Bombard2' picture. Puzzled by this, I asked Jeremy for clarification and what the $500 fee was for. I was told that the initial consultation was not charged, and after that the $500 retainer would be applied to any outstanding balance. Please see 'Bombard 3' attached screen shot. Still thinking this is ludicrous, I went along thinking the $500 would be the cost of the whole thing. Not a great price at all, but at this point I really just needed the contract done. Jeremy calls me up on Memorial Day to get some information about what's needed in the contract. Says he should have something by the end of the week, I say no rush as my other party joining this is in the middle of a move herself and to just let me know when it's completed. Get another email from Jeremy asking for clarification for a few things, and then finally I'm hit with a $437.50 charge for Jeremy's time on this contract. This is where things get infuriating, as I spoke to several lawyers in the meantime whom informed me something like this should take an hour or two tops to make. Price all in should be around $250-$300 max. As you can see with these pictures, I ended up paying $937.50 after being quoted $175 an hour for the job. If we take Jeremy's original offer, he supposedly took 5 and a half hours to write this contract that he ended up giving me 3 weeks late. The icing on the cake is I was let go from my employer yesterday and am looking into legal matters for unpaid overtime this past winter. Jeremy informs me he does not handle termination suits, but refers me to his buddy who would 'Take good care of me'. After an initial half hour on the phone with his 'buddy' attorney, I'm quoted at $300 an hour for the job, told I probably don't have a case at all but should start writing a 'Demand Letter' and send it to him for his approval. Oh and just so I knew, Jeremy would likely be getting some piece of the supposedly tough to get the upcoming payout for a referral. Instantly declined this lawyer's service and said I do not want to move forward with him, then thought it would be best to share my experience with Bombard Law for anyone whom is considering hiring Jeremy for their legal needs.

Rachel helped me through a contested property division process. The division of property - occurring some 13 years after the divorce itself - was opposed by my ex, who wanted to disregard the Settlement Agreement. Rachel was wonderful in her grasp of the situation, in explaining the options available, and then guiding me through the Court proceeding itself. I cannot help but believe that if Rachel had been my original divorce attorney I would never have been in the situation I found myself in. Smarts, warmth, and a sense of humor and perspective - quite a winning combination!

I was in a very serious car accident and fractured my femur. I needed two surgeries and was in a wheelchair for 2 months. In all, my recovery took about a year and a half. I hired the law offices Joel H. Schwartz and they were terrific. It was an extremely scary time for me, and I am so glad I had these guys to help me through it. They were not only my lawyers, but my therapists as well! They give you so much confidence that you know everything is being taken care of properly. The 2 year process was great, and my compensation for all I went through was more than I expected. I would recommend this firm in a heartbeat to anyone hurt in an accident. They are honest and will work hard for you.

I had been in a tenant/landlord lawsuit for months-- horrible and costly-- and was referred to Paul when my attorney suffered a family crisis. Paul took on my case and all the attorney's other cases, in addition to his own pending cases. It took him ONE day to resolve my conflict and let me move on with my life. I wish, wish, wish I had met him sooner, but I know that I can be saved again, any time I need, by calling him first!

After working with Attorney Austin Andenmatten on two separate legal matters I would highly recommend hiring him. He was always accessible in a timely manor to answer any questions or concerns and accommodating with my full time schedule for meetings in person or on the phone. His rates are very fair and I wouldn’t hesitate to retain his counsel in the future should it arise.

She handled my divorce case and I could not ask for a better attorney. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. She knows exactly what she is doing and offers emotional support as well. She understands it is a trying time. She went above and beyond what I expected to get from a divorce attorney. I would highly recommend her as you will not be dissappointed. She is also very reasonably priced.

Such Empathy! Coming from another attorney's office, I came in pretty disgruntled and miserable but left reassured and confident; with a big smile. I was elated that somebody truly "had my back." Such a very nice man. Even though he advised that I give my current attorney one more chance I knew I was to return immediately if it didn't work. He gave me a very sensible game plan of what he would do. I was counseled thoroughly. All questions answered. An honest discussion. It was extremely refreshing and to meet an attorney who was not interested in signing me on just to pick up a check, but rather one that saw no sense in doing so now because I had paid a hefty fee elsewhere, in the middle of some delicate very time sensitive proceedings, doing so would be duplication of services and would frankly set me back time wise due to its complexity and the gathering of documents. Most Ethical! His compassion and empathy was evident. It would have been a great pleasure to work with him. Finally, his prices are so very reasonable. No matter the complexity, he will find a way. So very reassuring plus an impressive successful track record. I would most definitely recommend Attorney Simon. Very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
