I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding your claim.  Thank you and good luck with finding the best lawyer for your case.

Marc Breakstone the light in our darkest time......
Marc was there for my family in the darkest time in our life. Tragedy struck our family suddenly after a minor hospital procedure ended in the loss of my husband's life. Marc came highly recommended by a colleague and now I know why. From the very beginning the advice he gave me was instrumental in the successful outcome. His knowledge and experience was clear to me through the whole process. He took the time to see the picture of our family before our loss and after. A life like my husbands can never be replaced ...thank you Marc Breakstone for being the fighter our family needed!

Marc Breakstone really is more than just a lawyer
Marc Breakstone provided more comfort and a peace of mind than I could have ever imagined. A little over a year ago, I was in a very serious taxi accident as a passenger- and almost 5 months pregnant. I was petrified for the health of my baby. I was completely overwhelmed with having to undergo a spinal fusion because my back was broken over several L sections. And I had an 11 month old at home that I could no longer take care of on my own. We had literally just bought a house 5 months before, and that accident literally caused my family's world to crumble. And if you are in a similar boat, you can relate- I have never felt so helpless and depressed, I needed to find a lawyer ASAP that I could trust with the well being and future security of my family. I was literally boggled of where to begin, as I have never been involved in a law suit before. And insurance contracts/ lingo/ etc was just so foreign to me. I found 4 lawyers total that I read reviews on from the internet OR was recommended by family friends. I found Marc on some Google search- and that made me a tad nervous because I am a little more "old school" than that. However, I called his office and after speaking to him directly ( which was literally about 5 min after I called, he returned my message )....I instantly felt at ease with him. There is something about his personality that is very direct, yet patient with explaining options/ the law/ advice. Marc was also willing to talk to my husband and a family friend who has legal background from another state trying to help me. So, I conservatively met with him and 3 other lawyers in person, and Marc was the only one I felt was both "down to earth" and at the same time extremely aggressive/passionate when it came to ensuring that my claim was heard properly by the parties concerned. We chose Marc to represent me, and I am SO HAPPY we did. Let me tell you this- If you want somebody that is approachable- choose Marc. If you want someone who will fight for you like he has known you for your whole life, choose Marc. And if you understand that you need someone who is that bit aggressive/confident in making his point, on your behalf, choose Marc. My husband felt that Marc would be a "lion in the ring " for us. Also, I want to add that I live in NYC...I was hit in MA during a weekend away. So I was nervous having the distance away from someone who is representing me. If by chance that is you- dont worry about it. Marc is literally so accessible. I also dont feel like I could write this review without mentioning- Christine Roberts. Marc's executive assistant is a rock star. She reflects his standards of extreme professionalism with a streak of warmth. I could keep writing about all the positive experiences I had along the way with Marc, but I will sum it up this way. A very hormonal pregnant woman, with a baby at home, was hit by a taxi and had to undergo a 7 hour spinal fusion surgery, learn how to walk again, and deal with the pain of the accident/surgery thoughout her pregnancy while accepting the fact she could no longer lift her one year old at home, bathe him, clean up after him etc. ** I am writing this review about one year from the accident and post settlement. I am still so incredibly emotional about that night and everything that happened....But I am still a bit proud that during this complete disaster and at times, what I honestly thought was depression and a breakdown mentally, I was still able to see that Marc would fight for me. And he did. And he will for you. He is just so passionate about his job...and you will come to see glimpses of his personal life that you know this is just a good guy. I look at my daughter now and I thank god for my neuro team, my OB team, and my lawyer. While my doctors really provided such wonderful physical care...Marc was really there as a rock- I let put all my anxiety on his shoulders and he delivered back a secure future. He will forever be part of our family story now.

Marc Breakstone Came Through For Me!
I hired Marc after another lawyer wasn't really spending the time or attention to my case that I felt comfortable with. When I spoke to Marc the very first time on the phone, I thought, "This guy is tough and attentive!" From our first conversation until the successful outcome of my mediations and settlement, I could not have asked for better, more thorough, and tough representation. I read a review on this very site and that lead me to Marc Breakstone. The positive things people say are right on the money. He told me to focus on my healing and health and leave the lawyering to him. I needed that assurance because I had 5 surgeries in just over a year, and was dealing with disability for the first time and I was in an enormous amount of pain. His strength allowed me to let it go and focus on my health. The case was settled in mediation and it was a very positive outcome. Thank you Marc, Christine Roberts and Reza Breakstone. I am forever grateful for your hard work, expertise and dedication. I would recommend you to anyone that needed representation after an injury and facing big insurance. You gave a voice and a face to my case and you made them look at the facts. Grateful.

Thank you
Marc Breakstone rescued my wife’s case. After she fell down freshly painted stairs, we hired a lawyer who advertised in the local newspaper. That lawyer mishandled the case almost 3 years. He told us we had to accept an offer that was just slightly higher than the amount of her medical bills. Fortunately, a friend suggested I give Marc Breakstone a call. Marc met with us and was reluctant to get involved. He told us that he felt an obligation to help out and accepted the case. Marc jumped into action and filed suit against the landlord. He aggressively pursue the case taking depositions of every witness including the police officer who responded to the 911 call. Unlike the first lawyer, March handle the case with the highest level of skill and professionalism. He also guided my wife and her medical care and treatment to ensure that she received the best possible outcome. He kept us informed of every important development in the case. As a result of his superb work, the case was settled, prior to trial at mediation. We had the opportunity to see his impressive interactive digital presentation at the mediation. Everyone in the room was persuaded by the power of his presentation. Even the mediator commented several times how effective it was. The case settled for an amount many times greater than the first offer. We feel like we received the best possible representation. Dealing with Marc’s staff, including Christine Roberts, his secretary and Reza Breakstone, his associate, was a pleasure from start to finish. This is truly one of the finest law firms I've had the pleasure to work with. We feel blessed that Marc took our case. He is a tenacious fighter does not accept the penny less than full and fair compensation. Thank you Mr. Breakstone.

Marc Breakstone - Outstanding Lawyer
Marc Breakstone exceed every expectation I had when choosing the right attorney to represent my dad. I selected him based on a friend’s recommendation. After reading his client reviews, I felt he would be the right lawyer for the case. My family and I are extremely grateful with the outcome of a Medical Malpractice claim he settled through mediation. It was obvious that Marc did his research and was well prepared, with full knowledge of the inadequate care given to my dad by a local hospital. With his interactive digital presentation at mediation, it took no time to persuade the mediator to advocate for our side. Marc showed full respect and beyond compassion for my family from day one. I felt as though we were his only client. He returned phone calls, emails, or text messages almost immediately, at all hours of the day or night, including weekends. My dad’s case was a difficult case that could have possibly been dragged out for years, however Marc was able to get it done without going to trial. I have the upmost respect for Marc and would highly recommend him without any hesitation.

Marc Breakstone is a godsend
On December 21st, 4 days before Christmas, I found myself a victim. A van going over 40mph flew into my body as I stood in a crosswalk near my home. As I rolled over the van, I immediately felt my life was over. My backpack tore off my body like it was held on by string. And when I hit the cement all I could think about was the oncoming traffic which would crush me. For reasons I still don’t understand today, cars screeched to a halt seconds before hitting me. I desperately tried to quickly get up and run away from the accident, but I couldn’t. I was bloody, in excruciating pain, and my legs motionless from spine trauma. For the first time in my life I felt fragile and broken. The ambulance rushed me to BIDMC trauma center where I received medical treatment for a broken vertebra, spine trauma, and vascular and nerve damage in my legs. I knew my body would require years of healing and that I would never be 100%. I had no clue where to begin or how to recover. And having moved to Boston for work, I had no family to take care of me. By God’s grace, I found Marc Breakstone. Several days after my accident, I was referred to him. I remember distinctly my first conversation with him over the phone. I was overwhelmed with his kindness, sympathy, and most importantly wisdom. He somehow gave me optimism in my darkest time. I was impressed that he called me while he was on vacation with his family. And even though he couldn’t meet with me in person immediately, the very next day he sent his partner David White to visit me in my home. It was evident that the two men were sensational and I knew I couldn’t be in better hands. Over the course of two years of treatment, Marc was always there for me. He consistently checked in on me. He gave me invaluable counsel, optimism, and always his Yiddish words of wisdom (which I now use myself). I felt comfortable talking to Marc about anything. And even though I knew Marc had many cases more important than mine, I truly felt I was his only client. Marc Breakstone and his assistant Christine Roberts are simply the best. I’m grateful to have found such a wonderful attorney who I know I will have for life. I continue to be impressed with Marc and the legal team he belongs to. Both Marc and David are active in the community and I see them on the news all the time. They not only fight for justice, but strive to reform laws which will make Bostonians safer. If you are in need of legal advice and someone to fight for you and be on your side, look no further. You can’t find a better advocate.

Best Boston personal injury attorney without a doubt!
When tragedy strikes you need someone like Marc by your side. When I became paralyzed I didn't know who to turn to, so I did a quick search on the internet. To my surprise, I found several website that gave glowing reviews to Marc, and I now, have become one of those reviewers. I'm happy to say that from the beginning Marc was unlike any other lawyer I had ever met, thoughtful, kind, attentive, and caring! He would email me to keep me informed of my case. It has restored my faith in the legal profession. If you need an attorney in the Boston area, don't hesitate for a minute, Marc is the best one around.

Marc is outstanding...I lucked out.
In a nutshell, Marc Breakstone is a top-notch attorney who puts back compassion in representation. I wholeheartedly recommend him. This was my first experience having to use the services of an attorney let alone use one for an injury I sustained. I never thought I would ever need to and in the back of my mind I was hoping never to deal with any attorney of any kind due to all the negative stigma. However, after my car accident which left me in severe pain I was hounded by the other insurance company to settle my case within two days of the accident and before I had a chance to see a specialist. They wanted to meet me at various fast food places to discuss and settle the case with zero regard for my situation. I was in no shape to drive due to my injury. The stress of the pain and the constant harassment by them was overwhelming. I reached out to Marc Breakstone through a friend of the family who is a patent law attorney. Marc took a major stress point and outright eliminated it. His instructions to me...."You focus on getting better and I will deal with all legal matters". It couldn't have been truer. A huge stress was lifted off my chest and Marc was amazing from immediately halting the harassing calls from the other company to guiding me through the whole process of getting better. He was on top of my case every step of the way and periodically he would check on my health progress and he would buffer me from all legal matters. I've never been injured before and his expertise in the medical field is phenomenally helpful. He was able to help guide me in identifying the proper medical types of specialist who were finally able to help me. I could not have asked for a better representative to take my case. Although healing was my #1 goal the outcome of the case was better than I had expected.

Very Happy Indeed!
In June of last year, I was broadsided by a car while on my bicycle. I had the right of way, the driver did not see me; he failed to stop at the stop sign. The bulk of the damage was in my right shoulder, which hyperextended and snapped a tendon. I searched for an attorney who was also a rider, and the name Marc Breakstone kept popping up. From the beginning to the settlement, Marc was always there to take my call and answer my questions. He took care of everything from hospital bills to insurance issues. Engaging the services of Marc Breakstone was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Marc Breakstone, Best of the Best.
My youngest brother was tragically lost as the result of a needless construction accident, my entire family and all close to him were devastated. . Initially you are in shock and overcome with grief, and then the realization arrives that this should never have happened. My Family was determined that his sacrifice was not in vain and that ultimately, no one else should have to go through such a horrific experience for needless reasons or negligence. It was obvious we would need exceptional legal counsel as we would be dealing with large and powerful companies and insurance entities, with large revenues’ to support their defense. So I began an intensive search for the absolute best attorney and law firm to represent my family in my brothers’ memory. I narrowed my search down to two firms that were the most highly rated overall and with exceptional attorneys whose credentials were of the highest caliber as well. Both firms had proven histories in litigation and personal injury, the highest peer reviews, top rankings in the state of Massachusetts and all of New England, this included the ratings of their individual attorneys. I met with the first firm, the explosion experts, and was very satisfied with their credentials, personnel and ability to handle our case. Then I met Marc Breakstone with Breakstone, White & Gluck. There is a difference! When I sat down with Marc Breakstone he gave me an overview of his firm and rather than present me with a bunch of contracts to sign, Marc presented me with a briefing on the case. He had looked into details and contacted and spoke to individuals prior to our meeting, this done of his own accord and expense. We discussed his take on the case and possible directions to proceed. Remember, I have not hired anyone yet! Throughout our conversation Marc looked me directly in the eye, I could see the passion and caring and I felt confident with my decision. We ended that meeting with a verbal agreement and a handshake. Once Mr. Breakstone started on the case we left it in his hands, he would contact me for anything relevant, and otherwise we had little contact, although I was free to call with questions at any time. I am not an expert in law, so I leave that task to those highly qualified and place my trust in them. I can tell you now after the fact that it was an excellent choice and we have no regrets. I had the opportunity to attend a hearing with Marc Breakstone and saw firsthand who was defending my brothers’ memory. When he spoke in the court room he commanded the attention of all present. His presentation and manner where of a level high above all the other attorneys present that day, and there were quite a few involved in this case. It was obvious the level of respect from his peers and the judge was in high regard. After the hearing several attorneys approached me and commented on the excellent counsel we had representing our case. This particular case was quite complex and involved numerous parties and claims on both sides. Marc Breakstone was able to consolidate these cases, maintain the lead role, and got the entire case load expedited through the normal judicial system in record time. Marc Breakstone’s efforts also resulted in shared costs of discovery, this saved all of us costs. Marc Breakstone’s pretrial multimedia presentation was so powerful that we never went to trial, instead utilizing mediation. The result was an extremely high settlement in an exceptionally fast time given all the factors involved. I would highly recommend Marc Breakstone and Breakstone, White & Gluck to anyone needing honest, aggressive legal representation. A quality firm with the highest degree of integrity and a genuine personal caring to see the right thing followed threw to the end. I understand many people may have a less than favorable opinion of attorneys; this is one firm that could change your opinion!

Marc Breakstone is a remarkable lawyer!
Marc Breakstone is a remarkable lawyer. I got doored while riding my bike to work; I was suffering from multiple injuries and was in constant, devastating pain. My wife was terrified. We interviewed a few lawyers and were immediately impressed with Marc's credentials, experience and communication skills. He promised to take care of my legal concerns so that I could focus on my recovery. He followed through with his promise by checking in often, by giving us updates and by answering our questions as they came up. He stood by my wife and I through a very challenging time in our lives. He was patient as I worked through a year of surgery, doctor visits and physical therapy. Through his hard work he secured a settlement that is now helping us move on with our lives. We're grateful for Marc's compassion and hard work. We heartily recommend Marc Breakstone as a personal injury lawyer.

Successful Arbitration
Attorney Marc Breakstone is an exceptional lawyer. Even is a case that on the surface did not look very promising. He will research all the information at hand, ask questions, follow leads and find missing information. Marc uncovered missing information and turned my case around turned a possible loss in a victory. Thanks Marc

Marc Breakstone is an exceptional attorney
Attorney Marc Breakstone is an exceptional lawyer because he is genuinely interested in his client’s well-being, diligent in resolving issues, and relentless in demanding maximum compensation for injuries. When I was injured in 2009 because another driver wasn't paying attention and rear-ended my vehicle I didn't think I needed legal help. Thankfully, friends and family constantly urged me to talk with a lawyer and Marc came recommended as "the lawyer you want if you have a personal injury case in Massachusetts." After listening to the issues surrounding my injuries, Marc urged me not to try to deal with the insurance companies by myself because they would not have my best interests in mind. Marc immediately went to work on obtaining my lost wages and when my employer cited a 6 to 8 week turnaround he got involved and secured wages I desperately needed in two weeks’ time. As suit was filed in my case Marc’s thorough review of details led to his amending the suit to include losses my wife suffered due to my injuries. When ongoing medical expenses became cost prohibitive, Marc worked with my surgeon’s office so these bills could be paid out of settlement funds. At our mediation Marc was unyielding in obtaining a settlement that overcame the insurance company’s ridiculous and insulting offer by 6 times more than where they started. While Marc was a bulldog in negotiating with the defense, he kept us at ease and relaxed by his personable approach and friendly conversation between mediation sessions. Marc was able to secure a settlement for us that allowed us to move on with our lives and really showed us what a great lawyer should be if one is ever needed. We would enthusiastically recommend Marc Breakstone to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer. I’ll go further, if you need a personal injury lawyer in Massachusetts; Marc Breakstone is the only one you want to handle your case.

Marc Breakstone is an exceptional lawyer
Marc Breakstone is an exceptional lawyer. When my 5 year old daughter was seriously injured by a dog, my wife and I did not know who we should speak with or what we needed to do in this situation. Marc came highly recommended and offered to speak to us about the incident. We were very concerned about the well being of our daughter and told Marc that we wanted to wait until our daughter’s injuries had healed before we decided on any course of action. Marc was very understanding and also explained to us that there were some things that we needed to do immediately to protect the interests of our child. We are so glad that we found Marc. Marc’s genuine concern for the well-being of my daughter was exemplified in his words and in his actions. Marc referred us to an excellent physician. Marc waited almost a year for my daughter’s injuries to heal before we began to proceed. Marc made sure that my daughter did not to have to revisit the incident by having to testify and Marc fought hard to obtain a very good settlement that my daughter deserved. Marc told me at the outset that he would try to make sure that the entire process did not disrupt my family and he held true to his word. My wife and I would definitely recommend Marc and wish him all the best.

Doing everything in his power to provide the best representation during difficult times.
Through our 6 year experience with Marc, he has left a lasting image of an outstanding lawyer. Marc is a very diligent lawyer, and always kept our family updated on every detail throughout our case, over a hundred mail communications and countless phone conversations. His relentless attitude in the courtroom really made us us feel that we had chosen the best attorney for our case. Marc never settled for an amount that he felt was unfair, and stuck with the case for quite some time to accomplish the greatest judgment that was possible. Working with Marc was a pleasure and he is very reassuring throughout a process that is traumatic and fairly new for most people. I would recommend Marc to anyone who wants to be sure that they have chosen the best attorney for the case.

Marc Breakstone certainly worked his magic with my case,I couldn't be happier
I recently used Marc in a case that no other attorneys wanted to take on. Marc worked diligently to resolve the case fast. He kept me informed the entire time and worked overtime when the insurance company wanted to put off paying. I got my settlement and it is due entirely to Marc Breakstone. I have recommended Marc and would again. He is a great attorney.

Medical Malpractice 5-6/11
Marc represented our family in a suit against the surgeon who performed a basic surgery on our very healthy mother in March 2005. She developed a systemic infection that was left untreated for seven days. She died from complications of this infection six weeks later. Marc beleived in this case and did everything in his power to present all the facts to the jurors. The outcome was not as we would have hoped. But, my brother and I feel strongly that Marc presented all the details of this case. He asked for and listened to our thoughts and suggestions. He managed to include our feeling of helplessnes and the pertinent medical records. We felt that our story was heard and we found some peace in that, thanks to Marc.

Medical malpractice Attorney | Nov 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Marc by his excellent reputation for ages, and I have personally first met him about 10 years ago, when I was attending one of his seminars for young lawyers starting their practices. Marc is as fierce as he is fearless in achieving results for his clients - and he is known for it by the defense bar, his opposition. His reputation among legal community is unquestioned: it is one of the very best. I, too, told my husband that if I ever get into an accident where I would be unable to articulate my will, I would like Marc to represent him for my injuries. Marc is also a very generous spirit to those who aspire to practice law perfectly: he is a well-known mentor, bar activist and frequent lecturer/ speaker on various issues concerning enhancing one's legal expertise and law practice. I highly recommend Marc's services and feel privileged to know someone of such amazing professional magnitude ."

I know that if there is no case there, Marc will tell her so, I also know that if there is a case to be pursued that Marc will be a zealous advocate for my family.
