I strongly suggest everyone to Michael Shemtoub for their needs. I worked with Michael on a wrongful passing case, he reacted rapidly and effectively, taking care of each portion with consideration. He even took care of the counsel totally , and carried along an interpreter for great measure. Michael and can deal with any case with expert strength and effectiveness. I can' wait to work him again in the future.

Michael Shemtoub is very experienced. I am so happy to of chosen him. This was my first time hiring a lawyer and it was a great experience. He knew exactly what he was doing and he took the time to understand my concerns. He was very professional and broke everything down to me to make sure that I understood exactly what he was saying. He kept me up to date throughout this whole ordeal. I do not believe I could of picked a better lawyer. If I ever need a lawyer again I will be sure to use Mr. Shemtoub

I truly can't overstate what a great experience I had working with Michael. From the starting meeting, to the statement planning and through the settlement process, Michael was inconceivably expert and truly put resources into getting me the best conceivable result. As a lawyer myself I know how simple it might be to get overpowered when dealing with various cases, yet I can sincerely say I never craved anything less than a necessity at this firm. The correspondence was magnificent and any inquiries I may have had were instantly and completely answered. These gentlemen know their stuff. When it was all said and done I had accepted a settlement which far surpassed my desires, and I have no doubt it was because of Michael's to a great extremely competent representation. The way that they are such decent individuals is simply what tops it off.

A huge thank you to Michael Shemtoub from Beverly Law for helping me with my divorce case. I was absolutely frustrated and lost with this whole situation.

I contacted Michael Shemtoub after a personal injury situation I experienced. He was very personable and I was impressed with his compassion for my issue. He seemed to be genuinely concerned with my well-being. He was a great communicator and was very professional. He seemed to know his trade very well and kept me up to speed with all aspects of my case which would have otherwise been very intimidating. He took control of the situation and I was very pleased with everything he did. I would highly recommend Mr. Shemtoub to anyone who needs a great personal injury lawyer.

Michael Shemtoub, was beyond just professional. He treated me like every detail of information mattered. He is reliable and was very prompt about returning my calls and emails. I had a car accident, and I needed a lawyer who was ready to take on my case. Michael Shemtoub was very enthusiastic about my case and even was kind enough to suggest a doctor who would treat me without any upfront cost. I felt that I could trust Michael because he is a hard charger who is very confident in his work. I highly recommend Mr. Shemtoub, because he offer great results and he is respectful and trustworthy.

Throughout the first telephone discussion I had with Michael. I knew immediately that I could trust him. For me this was staggeringly vital since it was his genuineness that won me over and securely permitted me to acknowledge him as my agent partner. I utilize the statement "partner" on the grounds that he made an environment where we cooperated, to a regular objective, and I knew I could rely on him. He obviously headed the way, and I generally felt like we made advancement together. It was such a decent transform from a past experience in an alternate, to a degree comparative circumstance. What encouraged this the best was the way he conveyed. I generally realized what was going on, and I generally had a voice and a decision.

My family hired Mr. Shemtoub and his firm after my sister got involved in a car accident that wasn't her fault. The case was a bit complicated, as immediately after the crash she felt fine, yet a few hours later she started getting dizzy spells, strong headaches, and blurred vision, and was rushed to the ER. It turns out she had suffered a neck injury that cost over $5,000 just for the diagnosis and the short stay in ER, plus a neck collar and a course of several physical therapy sessions that added a lot to the cost. Meanwhile, the other driver who was responsible for the accident had disappeared. While he gave his insurance information and his cell phone number at the time of the accident, he never answered or returned calls or texts from us, and never answered phone calls from his insurance company either. As a result, his insurance company refused to pay any claims for my sister because 'they didn't have the other driver's side of the story' and claimed there wasn't anything they could do until they got in touch with him (which never happened). In the meantime, my family was getting hit with my sister's high medical bills that had started pouring in. This is when we turned to Mr. Shemtoub for help, as the situation was a big hot mess, and we didn't feel we had any leverage or getting anywhere with the insurance company. Hiring Michael was the best decision we could have made at that point in time. He was persistent, thorough, patient and kind with us, and left no stone unturned. He always kept us in the loop and promptly returned our phone calls. What had started so badly ended up being a big success and justification for my sister, who, not only got her medical bills taken care of, but was also compensated legal fees and even ended up with some cash for herself. Cannot commend (and recommend) Michael Shemtoub enough!

Posted by a Car Accident client,
Last year my grandmother was hit by a truck while sitting in her car. Her car was parked in an appropriate parking zone, but the driver claimed she was exiting the parking spot into a busy street when he hit her. No witnesses could determine whether or not she was moving, but I know my grandmother- and she's the kind of woman who would own up to a mistake if she made one. The owner ended up trying to charge her for damages costing over $10,000! Which was completely absurd. The entire wreck not only was causing her emotional and mental stress- her insurance rates had gone up and she was having neck problems. She never said they were from the accident, but the entire family was sure they were- as they started about four days after it happened.
My uncle began looking for a lawyer for my grandmother about a month after the accident. The driver of the truck was being just plain ridiculous. We're not the kind of people who take people to court over such miniscule issues, but the truck driver was being rude and absolutely obnoxious in requests to my grandmother (who is too sweet to stand up for herself). She as going to fork over the money, but everyone in the family avidly disagreed.
Michael, right from the start, was very respectful. He didn't push my grandmother in any legal direction she didn't want to go. She wanted to keep it cordial and so did our family. We didn't want any snide lawyer trying to weasel more money out of the situation. Michael didn't do that. He went in with a clear head and kept all of our requests in mind throughout the entire process.
We have a fairly big family- all of which were involved in the case in some way or another. It was really important that we all be kept informed. Michael made sure each of us were kept up to date on what was going on. Would ask us questions if need be. And always assured us that he was staying within the requests of my grandmother.
Michael was extremely knowledgable on car accident cases and knew what we could do and what we couldn't do. He answered honestly each of our questions. He addressed our concerns with respect. And he got back to us in a timely manner if we ever had to leave a message with him.
By the end of the case the truck driver dropped all charges and agreed to pay the damages himself. My grandmother on the other hand was compensated legal fees. Her car had barely any damages, so she agreed to pay that part. And although we pushed her into taking action on her physical pain- she didn't. And Michael, who could have taken advantage of that aspect, agreed to let her make the decision on whether or not she wanted to go forth with that kind of case. She didn't- and he never pushed it.
Overall a really trustworthy and respectable guy. I'm glad we chose him.
