  1. Responsive & Competent Attorney

    • I recommend Thomas O'Brien.

    A family member had applied for social security disability and on being denied, requested a hearing. We attended the first scheduled hearing without an attorney. We didn't realize how unprepared or how little we knew about the process until we got there. At the judge's suggestion, we rescheduled the hearing in order to allow time to locate an attorney. We called 2 or 3 (attorneys) but they either didn't return our call or didn't have time for our case. Luckily we contacted Mr. O'Brien's office, and after obtaining and reviewing information from us about our case, he immediately "took the bull by the horns" and relieved us from having to spend countless time and energy contacting physicians and medical facilities to get updated records, obtaining earnings records, etc. His legal assistant, Tracy Suggs, continually kept us informed and updated on a regular basis throughout the process. We have never dealt with a more patient, knowledgeable and compassionate legal assistant and attorney. Most importantly, he met with us prior to our hearing to discuss how it would be conducted, what we should expect and to put us more at ease. Without Mr. O'Brien's help, we are certain we would not have won our case. We will be recommending him to anyone who is in need of an attorney.

    • I recommend Thomas O'Brien.

    After I was restructured out of a job, I retained Thomas O’Brien to review my severance package contract. Most of it seemed straight forward, but I wanted it looked over by a lawyer before signing. I’m glad I did. Thomas found several points of concern, which could potentially restrict my ability to find new employment and/or the type of employment I could accept. With Thomas’ council, I was able to negotiate more favorable terms of the contract with my former employer. I highly recommend Thomas O’Brien for clear concise legal advice.

    • Thomas handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.

    We hired Thomas to help with a contract dispute with a previous landlord. He was able to dig in and get all the needed information in a timely manner. All his communications are clear and concise. With Thomas help we were able to get our issue resolved quickly and painlessly. I hat to think what it would have been like without his help.

    • I hired Thomas 1-3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Social Security matter.

    Attorney O'Brien & Judy were an awesome team. They took care of everything and made my life less stressful. I was told how difficult child disability cases could be; but Attorney O'Brien made it look so easy. Outside of knowing his way around the courtroom; he also have a way with kids. He managed to keep my hyperactive 7 years old kid entertained throughout our wait at the Social Security Office. Passionate, Concerned, Understanding & knowledgeable,

    The first person I talked to in the office was Judy Osborne. She was immediately positive and sympathetic to my needs & concerns. I then met with Thomas O'Brien and he was very helpful, informative and honest.
