Brendan is very responsive, easy contact with the office and staff, worked with him twice. He caught some unreasonable fees listed on the closing sheet, so his service was virtually "free". Highly recommended.

Brendan's firm did a brilliant job helping us with the sale of our home. Their perseverance was exceptional and they kept us informed at every step. We recommend them most highly and without reservation.

I am a first time home-buyer and can't say enough good things about the Law Office of Brendan Appel. Brendan was very helpful in walking me through every aspect of the closing, and patient in dealing with a difficult bank situation. He went above and beyond in ensuring that our deal stayed intact and advocated for us to get closing credits from our bank when they caused significant delays in the process.
The office's legal assistant Doris is a Saint! She answered every phone call and e-mail as questions came up, notified us quickly as things progressed, and also advocated for us when other parties were unresponsive. She coached us through every stage of the process and always did it with patience and a friendly tone. I am so grateful for her help and guidance.
They really helped make this process easier and it was a very stressful and difficult situation dealing with unresponsive bank representatives, difficult sellers' attorney and constant delays from other parties. We couldn't have gotten through it without them!

My family and I relocated to Boston and needed to sell our house remotely. We used Mr. Appel's office to represent us. They did a fantastic job taking care of everything for a smooth closing. They were so diligent in walking us through the various steps and documents, and were so easily reachable at any time that we were comfortable letting them handle our transaction without us being around. We would highly recommend their service to anyone.

Brendan helped me and my husband through 2 long cases (a foreclosure and a fraud case against our lender). He handled things with genuine care and knowledge spending endless hours preparing our cases and after every court date coming to see me or texting me to let me know everything was going smoothly. He's always prepared for what ever his opposition presents to him. I truly believe in him and would highly recommend him to anyone.

If you are looking for a lawyer. You will not do better than Brendan Appel. When I was in the market for my first house, like most first time buyers I was very nervous about all the contracts and legal documents that went into purchasing a home. It's quit daunting. I was referred to Brendan through a co-worker that had used him before. After meeting Brendan for the first time I instantly felt at ease. He took the time to make sure I understood what was what. I never felt like I was being taken advantage of.
And anytime I had a question or concern, no matter how small. Brendan always got back to me in a timely fashion. I know that I wasn't Brendan's only client, but he made me feel like I was. Needing a lawyer for anything is a nerve racking situation. But when you have a lawyer like Brendan Appel you instantly feel at ease.
All lawyers should take a lesson for Brendan Appel. A true professional.

Punctual. Friendly. Answers all my dumb questions at the real estate closings. I have another closing coming up this week. With him by my side, I know it'll go smoothly.

I was trying to purchase a commercial property that was in foreclosure, and as if that wasn't daunting and painful enough, the credit bureau(s) had wrong information listed on my report and where refusing to change it. Brendan "swooped" right in and within days my credit report was cleared. Additionally, Brendan also made the whole foreclosure purchase a lot more bearable from communicating with the bank to providing all the extra documentation which seemed to change each day - I wouldn't have been able to do it without him! Extremely helpful, trustworthy and knowledgeable!

Mr. Appel was recommended to me by an estate attorney. He was able to make what were potentially difficult transactions very pain-free - especially for my aging mother. Always available to answer questions; patient; courteous and extremely professional. Its not often you can say that you look forward to "working with an attorney". Mr. Appel is the exception.

One of the worst days of my life was March 2nd 2012, when I stepped into Mr. Appel’s office to inquire about his services. I was trying to defend myself against a lawsuit for $10,000 in a small claims court case # 12 M2 000300 with a settlement offer of $4091.19 before the filing of the suit. We engaged in a defense and a countersuit . The case wasn’t heard before a judge until April 22nd 2014. Up until that point I had already been invoiced and paid for $16,787.22 including a $2,500 retainer (why I paid this amount is a whole other story in itself) which is well over the estimated quote of about $6,500 I had received from another lawyer that Mr. Appel was fully aware of.
For the month of April which included both preparation for the trial and the trial itself, Mr. Appel billed me for 92.4 hours of total work amounting to $21,685.62. I was flabbergasted at this amount which included a 14.10 hours work day, and requested to see him in person about his invoice. I wanted to negotiate his fees. I met with him in his office on May 5th, 2014 to try and negotiate the bill which is well before the May 10 due date and the 30 day grace period to pay without penalty my April invoice. He refused any kind of deduction; therefore at that time I told him I wouldn’t willingly pay him another dime. On May 6th 2014 he electronically filed a Motion to Withdraw Appearance from our still pending court case. On MAY 9TH 2014, the court offered its opinion in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $9,799.20. And now on May 21st, 2014 after we appeared in front of a judge to make the withdrawal from the case official, Mr. Appel immediately filed a lawsuit against me the same day (court case # 2014-M2-000910) for $19,373.12. He also threatened to follow up with another lawsuit for defamation if I told anyone about my true story.
My first born son graduated from an Ivy League school with high honors and then joined the US NAVY and became a Naval Flight Officer at the time of two ongoing wars. He flew hundreds of combat missions in both wars, and he along with millions of his fellow servicemen have guaranteed our freedom, and I will not let Mr. Appel to intimidate and take away my 1st Amendment right to tell others about my situation and allow them to form their own opinions.
