Feel Confident in Knowing You Are With the Best of Boston....Steven Kantrovitz KNOWS What You Need! He Is There Through It All!
Without Attorney Steven Kantrovitz, I would have lost the Workers Comp battle right from the start with all of its medical-legal ramifications. I had all I could do to make the call. I thank God for him! Never having had any reason to have a WC Attorney, I was strongly urged by a colleague to contact Steven as her experience with him was outstanding. I was encouraged by WC to find an attorney and they sent a list. He came recommended by them also. I had no idea in my case what to do, having been a committed employee with a strong work ethic. I need to say, I was nervous, and knew I could not handle it alone. When I finally made the connection with Steven Kantrovitz, all my anxieties were alleviated at once. His kind demeanor, the time he spent answering my questions and explaining, in detail, the process of what I needed to do. He represented me in speaking with all the appropriate insurance and workers comp. professionals on my case. Truly, he did it all! When something was denied, he saw to it that it was approved. He was completely compassionate and sensitive to my every need. I went to the best MDs and he would see to it that everything got approved as my case became more serious over time. I always knew I could pick up the phone and he'd call right back or within a 24 hour period. This is remarkable. There are many times I would receive a notice and anxiously call him, only to be reassured it is all being taken care of, that it is part of the system. I could go on and on. All I know is that if I had me for a client, I'd have to be ready...and he always is. My injury has developed into a nightmare and he understands, as does his staff. My initial work related injury has become a challenging journey of balancing so many issues of a 'day in one's life', which I battle with every day. I feel so blessed for so many along the way, I truly do. When it comes to Attorney "Steven" Kantrovitz, I believe I have received the very best legal counsel in Workers Comp, that there ever was!! He is knowledgable, caring, and listens with every bit of compassion he has. He follows through with every detail implicitly and has represented me every step of the way. I am eternally grateful to Attorney STEVEN KANTROVITZ for supporting me through my case. You deserve the award, Attorney Steven Kantrovitz "Best of Boston"!! Thank you again and again!!!

Attorney Kantrovitz is the best!
When I was injured at work, I had no idea what I was in for. I am so grateful to have Steve as my attorney. He is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and he explains everything from beginning to end. He is so down-to-earth, very easy to talk to, and a straight shooter; he tells it exactly like it is. He guided me through everything and made my life and this stressful process so much easier. Colleen is also amazing! She is very knowledgeable, proactive, and quick to respond, and she was a tremendous help to me through this process. Steve and Colleen are a dynamic team, and I can't say enough wonderful things about them. If I could give them ten stars, I would. I went through hell with my work injury, but because I had Steve representing me and Colleen helping me throughout the process, they made it so much easier for me so I could focus on taking care of myself. I did very well in the end, and without a doubt, it was all because of Steve! One of the best decisions I ever made! Thank you, Steve and Colleen! You are by far the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dear Christina Thanks so very much for taking the time to prepare your thoughtful attorney review. I know it can be a bit of a pain navigating the website to do a review, but I find it is very helpful to folks in their search for a qualified attorney. I also wanted to thank you again for trusting me with the handling of your case. I Know it was a long and often times grueling process. At the end of the day, justice did prevail and we were successful in getting you all the medical care you required and also maintained your wage continuation until we moved in the direction of a final resolution. The end result was most certainly in your best interest. Your only remaining task is to finish your medical treatment and then, when ready, reenter the workforce with an employer who deserves you. I have every confidence that you will reenter the workforce in short order, and that you will be successful and shine, wherever you land. As we also discussed, I will always be there and available to you for whatever you require. In closing, I wanted to thank you again for preparing this thoughtful review and wanted to thank you again for trusting me with eh handling of your case. Take care and stay well Steve

Dear Mike Thanks so much for taking the time to do the attorney review for me. For those folks who do not have the benefit of a friend making a referral to an experienced and qualified attorney they are required to either go online or rely on attorney advertisements on TV. Unfortunately, the end result often does not work out well. Other than that, I am very pleased we had provided the services you both require and should expect. I agree that the end result was most certainly in your best interest. I really appreciate both your patience and trust throughout this difficult process. Very best of luck going forward Mike. Steve

insurance settlement and required surgeries
Mr.Kantrovitz and his associates were knowedgebale and respetful throught this journey. All questions and phone calls were answered promptly. The company they were dealing with were quite difficult to deal with(unresponsive on medications ) for days,A call to his office remedeed all problems.
Response from Steven Kantrovitz May 16, 2023
Hi Ralph Sorry it took me a bit to respond to your review. It is very much appreciated. I am also pleased that we helped to navigate the very difficult process of getting timely medical care and prescriptions authorized. Unlike private health insurance, getting medical care under the workers compensation statute is anything but quick and easy. Thanks again for your patience and trust throughout the process. Very best of luck going forward. Steve

He is the person both you and your family need
No matter how hard I have searched, no matter how hard I try I cannot find the words to properly express our gratitude to Mr. Steven Kantrovitz. When I first contacted Steven’s office the first thing he said is “ Before we do anything else, we need to make sure that your dad is ok”. Throughout our entire phone call I was a hysterical mess, because nothing like this has ever happened to us, nor did we think something like this would ever happen. As soon as he answered the phone, my mind went blank and I just broke down crying, and he stopped everything he was doing to console me, when I was inconsolable, and let me know that it everything was going to be ok, from that moment, I knew he was the person for our family. First and foremost, when you call his office you get a person. You’re not waiting to be patched through someone for an hour to two hours, nor are you waiting 2-3 week for a response back when you leave a message or an email. We have been working with Steven for over three years now and the impact that he and Colleen have had on our family has been a blessing from God himself. I have never worked with anyone in my life who cares about his clients and their family the way that Steven does. Whenever he called, no matter how stressful that situation, no matter what we were facing, he was always so cheerful and so delightful to speak wit and he would always tell us “I gotcha and we are gonna get through this.” His demeanor, his compassion and the care he has for his clients, and what he does is unheard of. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. He goes above and beyond to provide you with the best outcome, the most amazing and client centered support, and collaborative representation anyone could ever ask and hope for. Not once did we ever feel like we were going into any of our hearings, or any situation blindsided or alone because we knew that Stephen was with us, always. He had our backs and put us first, and it honestly was as if he was a guardian angel put before us to get us through such a difficult time in our lives. If you are looking for representation, if you are looking for someone who cares, if you are looking for someone who is going to be there for you and your loved ones; do yourself a favor and call Steven Kantrovitz now. He is the person for you. He is the person you want in your corner. He is who you want on your side.

Response from Steven Kantrovitz March 3, 2023
Dear Greeny and Golfrid Thank you so very much for the kind and thoughtful review. I don't often say this, but I am speechless. Much more than the favorable outcome we achieved, after extensive litigation, I am most happy that Colleen and I provided you and your family with the comfort, compassion and assurances you most certainly deserved. I do think that compassion and empathy are an essential ingredient a law firm should be providing to their clients. When an injury occurs, physical, financial, and emotional factors immediately follow thereafter. I am so pleased that we where able to provide your family that level of care. Unfortunately many of the "big" firms treat their clients like a number and are concerned only with the bottom-line and not the totality of the injuries sustained by their clients, financially, physically and emotionally! Going forward , I wish you and your family the best. Please keep Colleen and I posted with how your dad are doing. Thank you again for the kind words and for trusting us with the handling of your case. Best regards Steven and Colleen

Don’t waste your time calling anyone else!! Steven was amazing from the first phone call when I left a message on a Sunday saying I got hurt on the job and he called me Monday morning. He took great care of me and made my stressful process stress free especially when the insurance didn’t want to pay my weekly benefits He was right on top of it.

Hi Nick Thanks so much for the wonderful review. I am so pleased I made you felt comfortable throughout the entire process. You are 100% correct, the process can be extremely stressful, particularly when the insurance company does not want to pay benefits or when they deny medical care. Thank you again for trusting me with the handling of your case. I will always stand ready to help with whatever you require going forward. Please keep me posted when you ultimately return to the work force. Wherever you land, they will be lucky to have you Nick. Steven

My Faith paid off
While working at a seasonal contract position, I was on my feet for many hours a day as a private chef. My knee began hurting but I didn't think much of it until one day I couldn't put any weight on it at all. I went to the doctor to discover I had an overuse injury. The workers comp insurance instantly denied me and also told me there is no compensation for over use injuries. This is where my journey with Mr. Kantrovitz begins. I searched the internet for a lawyer because I believed I should be compensated and I also wanted to know my legal rights. When I reached out to him I was a little hesitant because of what the insurance had told me about overuse injuries. Once I explained my story, he accepted my case with no hesitation. In this moment, I felt hope again because picturing an injury that had me debilitated and unable to meet my financial needs was scary. First thing I did was listen to his advice and continued to see the doctor. Along with documenting and recording all medical transactions. In the beginning I wasn't able to get full care until the insurance would accept my claim. Mr. Kantrovitz worked very efficiently and with great confidence to win my case. I found him to be very knowledgeable, so I put all of my faith in his experience and guidance. On the day of our court case, there were a few tense moments when the other lawyer tried to make harmful claims against my case, but Mr. Kantrovitz was prepared and his responses were documented as well. This is what won my case! I would definitely recommend his services to anyone dealing with a workers comp situation. His knowledge and experience won't let you down. Thank you for such a professional and positive experience. And much of the credit goes to his Office Manager Colleen! (She is an absolute gem. Aware, knowledgeable and makes you feel well taken care of!)

Dear Kim Thanks for the wonderful review and sorry it took me a bit to formally thank you on this forum. I am very pleased that you took the time to research and find the best attorney for you. Your case was most certainly complex, from a legal perspective, but I was extremely confident that your case was just and that we would be successful. I appreciate your trust and your patience as the process played out. I know it took a while to finally get a date to appear before our assigned judge. Once that date came, the judge agreed with our position and ordered the appropriate benefits. Following the court order we were then able to finally resolve the case favorably. I know it can take a lot to place your trust in someone you do not know. Thank you for your faith in me. Colleen also wanted me to thank you for the kind words. You are most certainly correct, she is a gem, and I could not do this without her assistance. Steven

The man you need!
I met Steve Kantrovitz on the recommendation of a co-workers father. Small back history: many many years ago I had a worker's comp case with a different law firm and it was a traumatizing, horrible experience. I swore that, short of breaking my back or my neck, I would just suck it up so as to never go on workman's comp. NEVER have to be involved with a workers comp lawyers again. Well fast forward many years later and I had two accidents in a row at work. I did as I said I would, I dealt with all that pain and trauma. Think about that for a minute folks. The experience I had with a previous law firm left such a bad taste in my mouth that I would rather just suffer from the injury than go on workman's comp. Fast forward after THAT just under a year later and I could no longer ignore my injuries. I was terrified of having to go through that horrible experience all over again. Thankfully my coworker recommended to me this guy he knew named Steve. I quizzed my coworker for a 2 hours. I called Steven's office to make an appointment. After a return call my wife and I drove to his office. Immediately upon meeting Steve I felt most of my fears alleviated. He was not some slick talking, overbearing TV ad ambulance chasing shyster that I had come to expect. He has a great manner about him, with an easy laugh yet a serious, but not somber, demeanor when it came to getting down to business. We went over my case thoughtfully and completely. There was no rush. There was no hurry. He INSISTED that I understand there were no stupid questions. I told him about my previous experience. He knew the firm we were discussing. Without bad mouthing his peers he fully understood why I had been hesitant to come to another lawyer and explained to me how much it bothered him that because of negative experiences people like me would rather be in pain than go over their options with a legal professional. After a lengthy, thoughtful and thoroughly informative meeting I asked him about compensation for my injuries. He informed me that he believed that I was due for compensation but first, and I quote, "Chris, my first concern is getting you the care you need." Let that sink in for a minute folks because that is verbatim. Friends, you cannot fake that level of sincerity. I signed up with Steve right there and then. That was a few years ago. Fast forward to now in November of 2022 and, good to his word, he has more than gotten me the care I need. Doctor's appointments, therapy, testing, therapeutic equipment, spinal and cervical injections, multiple mri's, surgeries and so on and so forth. Things the insurance company didn't want to pay for. Things they constantly bust my chops for. Steve fought (and continues to fight) for, and got approved, every step of the way. A little while back we finally went to court. Recently we got a decision from the court and it was across the board in my favor. I'm man enough to admit that when Steve called to tell me the good news I was emotional. Years of not just pain but anxiety and constant worry finally faded away with that one phone call. I knew for the first time in a long time that I was going to be alright. That I and my family were going to be alright. That is because of Steve Kantrovitz.

Dear Chris So sorry it took this long for me to respond to your review. Your thoughtful and detailed review left me speechless. I know, that is saying a lot with my long winded self! Anyway, I am also pleased that you went into the detail you did with your other experience with the other law firm. Unfortunately all law firms do not treat their clients the same way and do not get the same results. I am so pleased you took the leap of faith to try it again with another attorney and trusted me with the handling of your case. We still have a long way to go Chris. We are now in the drivers seat, and that is where I intend to keep us. And yes Chris, you are alright, and that's where I intend to keep us. Thanks again Chris. Steve

I could not have asked for a better attorney.
I had a very difficult workers compensation case, where the severity of my injury negatively affected my mental health and personal life.I was denied important treatment that would potentially improve my injury. Even though the insurance made weekly payments, it was not even close to my regular salary. I worked for 20 years at the same job with great pay and benefits and this injury took a serious toll in my financial life. The insurance dragged this case for as long as they could to minimize the amount of my settlement. Suddenly they stopped my weekly benefits and did not have an offer to settle my case. Steven worked very diligently and professionally to reinstate my weekly benefits while the settlement was being discussed. He worked with the insurance and always kept me informed of the process. I received an offer that was not consistent with the extent of my injury and the workers compensation laws. Steven made sure that they were back to the negotiation table and obtained what I deserved. He was able to obtain additional benefits for me that will extend after the settlement. I could not have asked for a better attorney, Steven was superb and very thorough in all the necessary steps to win my case and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful of every aspect of his legal work and navigating the legal system in favor of his clients. Thank you so much Steven for all your support.

Dear Diana Thanks so much for the kind and heart felt review. I am so pleased that I met your expectations in the handling of the case. I know it was a long, long road with a lot of fighting with the insurance company with what you required medically and also finally reaching a fair and appropriate settlement. You had done pretty well handling things on your own for a while. When things got more tricky, you did the right thing reaching out to a qualified and experienced attorney. Hopefully your research and the attorney reviews helped in your decision making process. In the end, I agree that all went well and that we reached a fair resolution of your case. Again, thank you for your patience and your trust in me. Steven Steven H. Kantrovitz, Esq.

Dear Anthony, yes indeed, my Brother. Thanks for the kind words. Not only are you one of my favorite clients, you again put a smile on my face. I wanted to thank you for allowing me to assist you with your case. Many of my clients come to me as a referral from other clients, happy I would hope and assume. You took the big leap of faith and found me online. I know you did your research, looked at all the reviews and selected me after considering many other firms and attorneys. Hopefully you felt that your efforts paid off and you made the right call. Other than that, I know this was a longer process than you may have thought initially. Your patience and staying the course certainly helped to bring this matter to an amicable conclusion. All that is left now is for you to get out there and find the best job you can. Any employer who is lucky enough to get your services will be fortunate. Good luck my Brother. keep me posted. Steve

Steven has been a great help to me in many ways. He has provided guidance and is very knowledgeable in his field of law. So if I may suggest he is the right attorney for your work related injuries
Response from Steven Kantrovitz November 3, 2022
Dear Carmen Thanks for taking the time to write a quick review. As we have discussed, many folks do not have access to friends or family who were involved in a work related injury and who know an attorney with experience who can assist them. Those folks are left with the daunting task of either going on line or worse, listing to tv advertising with lawyers who claim they know what they are doing. More often than not, they have no idea what they are doing and are not even in the State of Massachusetts! Having the ability to view client reviews with actual experiences gives the consumer the ability to find the best attorney. Again, and most important, I wanted to thank you for trusting me with the handling of your case. Stay well my friend Steven

Attorney Steven H. Kantrovitz - I would highly recommend him! From the first day of our initial conversation in 2021, until the end of my case in 2022, Mr. Kantrovitz has answered all of my questions thoroughly and compassionately. He took the time to listen to my concerns and explained my workers compensation case with expertise. His legal knowledge and professionalism went above my expectations. Attorney Kantrovitz was trustworthy , caring, hard working and down to earth person. He approached everything with expertise, coupled with a wonderful wit that made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. His assistant , Colleen was very professional, courteous and timely with her response time and caring disposition.

Dear Annie Thank you so much for the kind words and the wonderful review. More important than anything, to me, is that I made you feel comfortable and well informed throughout the process. I think many attorneys fail to comprehend that the people they represent do not have a good understanding of the ins and outs of a case and the law, and need to be educated and informed of what is happening. I am pleased that I was able to provide that essential service. I am also pleased that things worked out as hoped and expected. You truly did have a complicated case, but in the end we carried our burden and we were successful. Thank you again for all of your trust and patience and I wish you happiness going forward. Steven

“Look No Further”
I was given Atty: Kantrovitz’s phone number from a mutual acquaintance after I had shoulder surgery. After Six months of PT my rehab was not progressing well so I called Atty: Kantrovitz. We met for two hours and when I explained my situation the first thing Steve said to me was to continue with rehab and hopefully my shoulder would heal and I would be able to go back to work, but if I continued to have problems he would help me with whatever I wanted to do. His first concern was my health and well-being. We talked at length about family, sports, work, etc.. Atty: Kantrovitz also discussed every scenario with W/C and how each situation could play out. When I left our meeting I didn’t even think twice about looking for another attorney, if I ended up needing one. Unfortunately for me, my shoulder surgery did not work, but “The Best” decision I ever made was hiring Atty: Kantrovitz. That’s not an exaggeration! I had six surgeries and for Five years I had to experience every step of the process involved with W/C and I couldn’t imagine having anyone other than Atty: Kantrovitz representing me as he had my back every step of the way. It didn’t matter what the issue was, Steve was there to rectify the problem, like Drs appts, denials, problems with pay etc. Atty Kantrovitz would call me in advance and let me know what a future hearing was about and what possibly could happen, but unlikely to happen. Because of Covid I was not required to appear in person for most of the hearings but after every hearing Steve would call and let me know how things went and in my case the court always agreed with our side. Every Time! This was the most stressful time in my life not knowing how things would play out but every time I spoke with Steve he assured me that everything would be fine. I always felt at ease after talking with Steve. We ended up settling and I know that Atty: Kantrovitz got the best settlement possible for myself and my family. Atty: Kantrovitz never once pushed me to settle and move on at any point during these last five years. It was always what was best for me. Every step in the W/C process that Steve had told me how things would go, played out exactly as he said it would. Not only did I get the “Best Attorney”, I gained a “Very Good Friend”! I also can’t forget Colleen, Steve’s assistant. She was always there for me when Steve was unavailable or busy with other clients. I cannot emphasize enough when when I say “look No Further” Contact Atty: Kantrovitz you will not regret it!

Dear Paul Thanks so much for the wonderful and heartfelt review. Over the last several years I think we have come to be great friends, in addition to our wonderful working relationship. I am so pleased that I kept you well informed throughout this difficult process, and did not put any pressure on you to secure my counsel. You did have a wonderful job with people who also cared about you. That, unfortunately is not always the case. Had everything worked out well with your medical care, I would have encouraged you to return to work, without any reservation. Unfortunately the severity of your injury did not allow a successful return to work. We then had to shift gears and establish a strategy to protect you legally, financially and medically. After much time, we were successful on all fronts. All I hope for now is that you have an improvement in your symptoms and you can start being Paul again. You truly are a good man and a good friend and I hope only for the best going forward. Stay in touch my friend. Steve

Your best choice for a Workers Comp. Attorrney
After working as a dedicated employee for 43 years I was fired do to a work-related shoulder injury. Both unemployed and unable to work I didnt know where to turn to. Fortunately for me I reached out to Attorney Steven Kantrovitz and within a few days a workers compensation claim was opened on my behalf and I was able to start collecting a weekly income and medical treatments for my injury. Attorney Steven Kantrovitz has excellent communication skills and kept me calm and comfortable and let me know what to expect. He promptly answered any and all my questions whether I asked them by email or phone no matter if they were important or trivial. When all the medical treatments were finished Attorney Kanatrovitz was able to get me a nice lump sum settlement to boot. Thankyou so much Steve.

Response from Steven Kantrovitz June 21, 2022
Dear Walter and Julie Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. It really means a lot! I do remember our early conversations regarding your termination from your employment after your injury. Unfortunately many employers do not understand the concept of a "No Fault" statute like workers compensation, and then blame the injured worker for the injuries they sustained at work. I am so pleased you reached out versus just assuming what was done to you was proper. At the end of the day, justice worked the way it was intended. Your surgery was approved, your wages were replaced and you received a very nice settlement at the end, to boot. I am so thankful that you Julie trusted me throughout the process. Both Colleen and I are very grateful for your patience and trust. I wish you the best going forward. Steve Steven Kantrovitz, Esq.

I HAVE THE BEST ATTORNEY
I am starting this review the way I will end this review that I HAVE THE BEST ATTORNEY. Being injured at work I tried to solve my injury the way I thought was right see a doctor and try to get healthy faced with pressure from my company to participate in their light duty program and my concern that this was different I knew I needed representation. Calling attorney Kantrowitz's office they went straight to work on my case. Colleen was wonderful and took down all my information Steve called me and explained everything I needed to know about my case his knowledge of workman comp law and his personal caring of how you are doing gave me great comfort through a stressful situation. Steve and Colleen always returned s AND THERE WERE MANY the same day. My case was successful and truly thankful to Steve and his team. Like I said I HAVE THE BEST ATTORNEY.

Dear Mike Thanks so much for the review. If you were trying to make us blush! You win, you did. All kidding aside, you were an absolute pleasure to work with, multiple call and all. I truly understand how stressful and complicated this process can be. Over the years you had done a wonderful job trying to navigate previous issues on your own. When it came to this situation, being more significant and having greater and long term effects, you made the right decision to obtain representation. I am grateful that you placed both your trust and confidence in me and Colleen. All I want now is for you to go forward and enjoy your life. Your a good hard working man Mike. You deserve only the best. Again, thank you for the kind words and your trust. Stay well and keep in touch. Your attorney and friend! Steve

Great attorney
Highly recommend. Steve made the process of navigating workman’s comp law super easy. Always answered any questions I had and was quick to respond to phone calls and emails. Colleen was also great. If Steve wasn’t available she was more than happy to help me out.

Dear Eddy Thanks so much for the kind review. Thanks also for your patience. I was so pleased with how things worked out. You really went above and beyond with your commitment as well. You stared the process of vocational rehabilitation. You redefined yourself and found a new vocation that fits with your physical limitations after the injury. My job was being sure the insurance company did their part medically and financially. All you need to do now is shine in your new job. I am, so, so pleased things worked out as hoped and anticipated. Thanks to both you and your wife for both your patience and trusting me with the handling of your case. Please keep me posted on how you are doing with the new job or if you run into an issue going forward. Stay well Eddy Steve

Work place accident
I contacted mr. Kantrovitz’s office when my father suffered a traumatic brain injury while working for a Massachusetts town; which meant it would be a complex case. They helped & guided & made sure we understood full terms of what was happening over the course of three years…April 2019- April 2022 … they went above & beyond for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
