I was dealing with an extremely interesting, confusing case. The first lawyer I went with was a bust, and a court employee introduced me to Terri and suggested I use her to help my case. I have to say, this was the best suggestion I could have gotten. From the first day, Terri was amazing. She was incredible. Not only did she go to bat for me, she went above and beyond. Terri took my case not knowing the intricacies involved, and even when the fine details came out, she didn't back down. The integrity and moral fiber she exhibits both inside and outside of the courtroom cannot be match. She is professional, dedicated, and caring. She stood by my side even when things weren't looking good. Terri did her research and was able to battle the uphill struggle of the Massachusetts Court System. She kept me "in the loop" with every step of my case. I cannot say enough positive things about Terri. She will step up to the plate even if it's going to be a tough fight.

Thank God I had Terri on my side when no one else was there for me she was on my side. Terri is an amazing attorney and very affordable provides excellent legal resources and goes beyond expectations to help her clients, I was a young woman in over her head and Terri guided me every step of the way and if I ever need legal assistance again she would be my first choice. Thanks Terri!

In my life and unfortunate casual run-ins with our legal system.. I have never encountered a person who has shown so much passion in defending their clients to the best of their ability as Terri does..
Mrs. Leary defended my civil rights and never once decided to take the quick and easy way out of anything involving my case.. like most lawyers would.. "lets Just take the case to trial and get it over and done with".... she knew at the very begining that i had a very good chance of being found not guilty.. yet refused trial....
Mrs Leary charged me a very low fee for services rendered.. but did more for me than most lawyers that charge tens of thousands of dollars would... to get a result not even as good as my outcome was...
she put in countless hours researching my case.. Talking with her peers about the best options for me, and fought for a dismissal before we even went to trial..
The DA refused.... over and over... court date after court date.. 100's of pages of legal papers she wrote up on my case.. Mrs. Leary would not take "NO" for anwser... she refused to bow down to the "good ole boy system" and put her personal career and relationships with her peer's on the line to get me the right and fair outcome.
Innocent until proven guilty... not the otherway around.. At times I was tired and just wanted to get it over with.. but she talked me out of it.. and said you never should even have to go to trial.. you never should have to take any chance of being found guilty... because you were 100% wronged... At the end of the day everything was dropped and she still wanted to help me out with personal things like license re-instatement. without even asking for another DIME!!!!!!
The very next day after the cased ended I was her first phone call.. to see what she could do about it...
Over the 6 months i've known Mrs Leary... I personally spoke to her about my case probably 10 or so hours on the phone.. Which I was never charged a penny for..
When you call her office.. you'll speak directly with her.. For how much longer i don't know because with her legal ablities i'm sure she'll have hugh firm pretty soon... She has some of the best connections in the city as in peer endorcements.. She knows the so called big wig.. money making lawyers on personal levels so you case will be handled with lots of knowledge and great legal ablity Garanteeted!!!!!!..
I personally would never use another lawyer for anything in Massachusetts ever again except for Mrs Leary.. I wouldn't hesitate for a second if my life was on the line to have her as my sole defense. Shes a life saver and cares about her job to a level that words couldn't even describe.

I was recently defended by Terri D. Leary . I had a period in my life where I lost control. Unfortunately, I still had to be held accountable for my past mistakes. I was scared, my family was terrified, and we didn't know what to do. Terri D. Leary recognized this, and saw me for the person I am, not the person I was, and defended me with determination, knowledge , and grace. All the while keeping us informed on every possible outcome.
Not only did she get me a more than favorable outcome, but she gave me my "life" back!!! No words can express how grateful I am to Terri D. Leary. I reccomend her to anyone in the state of Massachusetts who needs an Attorney for any legal matter. With Terri D. Leary I didn't feel like I was just another case in a file folder. She made me feel at ease, and that myself and my family were getting the ''best'' possible outcome for the situation I was in. She took a completely complex situation and tackled the cases one by one and wouldn't settle for a ''low ball'' resolution. Terri D. Leary is an exception, and myself and family absolutely reccommend her to anyone who needs legal assistance.

I contacted Ms. Leary through Avvo.com and, even though she's never personally represented me ( yet), she has gone out of her way to answer any and all of my on-line questions promptly, honestly with informed knowledge. Keep in mind that she's doing this service without my compensation or retainer. I live in Plymouth County out of her immediate area, and would highly recommend her services to anyone.

Terri Leary exhibited all the qualities I was looking for in a lawyer, but had yet to find. She is genuine, upfront and honest. She answered my questions in a way that I could understand. Her rates are far more affordable without sacrificing quality legal work. I would recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney that will be thorough and go the extra mile to get the job done.

Having come face to face with an unfamiliar situation of being unemployed suddenly after many many years in the workforce, I was lost with how to proceed. Terri D. Leary was recommended to me as a lawyer that I could talk to regarding my situation. Upon meeting Terri, my initial fears were quickly dispelled. Terri answered all of my questions honestly and was very sincere. She worked with me to quickly resolve the situation. I would recommend Terri Leary to anyone that needs any legal assistance.
