Excellent Lawyer
Steven Boris is an excellent lawyer. He is very hard working and professional but also very personable and supportive. He was easy to work with and his ability to discuss my case in laymans terms was very helpful to me. He kept me informed either by e-mail or phone, so I was up to date with my case at all times. He was determined to arrive at a positive, fair outcome for my case, which he did with great ability. I would highly recommend Attorney Boris!

Importance of strong legal representation
Attorney Boris represented me in a personal injury case where we worked together for 2 1/2 years. During that time, I was treated with respect, kindness while being educated of the legal process. My case settled out if court only a few months before the scheduled trail. The non-binding arbitration was an effective strategy in achieving what I believe is the highest possible insurance settlement. Not only is Attorney Boris pleasant to work with, his partners and paralegal are professional and nice to work with. It was a very difficult time for me, but made the best it could be with My legal representation.

"Steve Boris is an exceptional lawyer with expertise in many areas of the law. He is a tenacious yet practical litigator who understands what matters in a lawsuit. This approach produces winning results for his clients at a reasonable cost. Lawyers in the community know that when Steve is involved in a case they will be put to the test and that he will be ready, able and willing to do all that is necessary to achieve the best result for his client. I have litigated cases with Steve and and have discussed his performance with other lawyers. The view described above is universally held by those that know Steve's work. Steve has a particular expertise in the area of admiralty and maritime work. He has a unique perspective on these cases as he represents plaintiffs, defendants, and insurance carriers in these matters. For this reason many parties who cannot resolve their disputes call upon Steve to help them achieve resolution. I endorse Steve heartily."
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Steve Boris for almost 3 decades as a fellow lawyer and friend. We practiced together for many years in a large Boston firm with a primary focus on personal injury litigation. When I consulted with Steve about legal issues and strategy, he always had excellent, practical, and well reasoned advice. Since starting our own firms in neighboring towns, Steve has continued to be a source of assistance and sound advice. Steve's continued success is evidence of his outstanding personal service to his clients and his tenacity on behalf of his clients."
