Mr. Roa walked me through the steps, I was wrought with anger and fear knowing I was innocent. He explained the process of going to trial, took his time with me on several occasions, explained the law, dealt with my emotions through it all. During the trial... you could see him execute the case with concise precision. He is an honest Attorney and I am thankful we won my case.

Attorney William Roa handled a real estate closing for me. Initially he was referred to me by my broker and I planned to use him for this transaction alone. However, based on my experience I will absolutely use him again in the future. He was responsive, thorough, and helped the transaction go through on time and without any hiccups. Despite some unexpected title issues Attorney Roa did not charge me any more than his initial estimate and still had everything done in time. On the day of the closing he represented me well and was very much on point throughout the whole process. He also made sure to follow up regarding the release and deliver final paperwork for my records. I enjoyed working with Attorney Roa and would absolutely recommend him to my friends and family for their Real Estate or other legal needs.

Attorney William Roa was hired to represent me for gun charges in Boston. He was able to negotiate with the DA to keep the charges in District Court. He handles himself well in court. He is not easily intimidated when dealing with the DA. The DA tried very hard to have my case moved to Superior Courts. This would have greatly increased the mandatory sentence. I liked that he did not press me to accept the first plea offer. I had multiple charges and previous charges on my record. I could have received triple the mandatory sentence. He was able to negotiate the minimum sentence and keep my sentence in H.O.C. I believe he got me the best sentence in a bad situation. He even met with me on Easter Weekend at the jail. I trust him and would recommend him to anyone with gun charges in Boston. He is experienced and he appears to care. I liked that I could tell he really listened when I talked to him. He was straight with me from the beginning about the best or worst outcome that I could expect. I'm glad I hired him.
