Best Lawyer in the Boston area
Attorney Schwartz handled my auto accident case last year. I interviewed several well known Attorneys and was most comfotable with him. From start to finish, he was a straight shooter and very compasionate. The results were more than what I expected and I am so appreciative of his efforts. I highly recommend this firm!

Honest, Hardworking, and Extremely Knowledgeable Attorney
I was in a serious car accident a couple of years back. I was referred to Steven Schwartz from a friend who had used their firm in the past. I have to say that I had a very bad impression of attorneys before this. However, after having used this firm, my opinion has definitely changed. I met with Steven Schwartz initially, and he explained the whole process and what to expect. He definitely put my mind at ease and made me feel comfortable. Joel Schwartz's staff and attorneys were second to none. They were true experts in their field and were terrific throughout. I never felt alone. Questions were always answered. I always knew what was going on. Most importantly, my case went to arbitration and I got an amazing award. I went through a lot with my physical and mental pain from the accident, but I am extremely satisfied with the monetary award I received. It was much more than I expected. This is one great law firm and I encourage you to call them if you ever get into an accident.
