Five years ago my company was owed about $2.5 million by a client on a project we built for a high-end restaurant in the Boston area. The bank and the restaurant were pointing fingers at each other and we and our subcontractors were left hanging. In 20 years of as a general contractor my company had never had any issues like this. I was referred to Brad by my accountant. He said Brad was the head of the construction bar in Boston and knew that area of the law as well as anyone. He also said that Brad was reasonable, but very strong. After my first call with Brad, I was immediately put at ease. He understood our issue immediately, developed a strategy to protect us, and gave me an idea of costs and potential risks. Although there were many issues, Brad guided my company through the process. He liened the project, fended off claims by subcontractors, and put us in a position to negotiate a very positive settlement without giving up much of anything. Brad's guidance saved our company. He was worth every penny. We continue to lean on Brad to keep us out of similar issues by having him review our contracts and other project issues as they arise. He's a valued part of my team.

“As an executive with a busy general contractor for over a decade, I have relied on Brad’s advice on a wide variety of legal matters for many years. He not only knows the legal issues we confront, but he also has a deep practical understanding of the commercial construction industry as a whole. Brad reviews, drafts and negotiates our contracts, helps with payment issues and project issues as they arise on jobs, and recommends options for our company that pose the least amount of risk. Whether it’s a small internal employment question or an issue with millions at stake, Brad is responsive and always has our best interests in mind. He gives us the same attention and quality of service that we give our clients and I consider him an invaluable member of our team.”

As a member of a Boston-area law school, I was confronted with a sexual harassment allegation made by the Student Body Judiciary committee. I immediately called Brad and asked him to represent me as numerous lawyers referred him. I was so glad I did! I told him my story and he engaged in a thoughtful step by step analysis of the situation. I was to show up in front of our Dean of Judicial affairs, and I was scared. Brad told me that he handled numerous cases like these in the past in the same school, and he knew exactly what to do with my case - his competence immediately assuaged my fears. He told me to be forthright and honest (telling me to admit to what I did in a contrite, sincere manner). I went into the meeting with the judiciary committee prepared, honest, and forthright. I was ordered to write an apology note and to undergo alcohol counseling, but I am able to stay in school and pursue my dream of becoming a lawyer! He truly saved my future livelihood and for that, I am grateful.
Without a doubt, I recommend Brad to anyone. He is professional, trustworthy, and hardworking!
