Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

    I endorse this lawyer. I am a civil litigator in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and have practiced law for over 18 years. During that time I have utilized Attorney Brian Jerome's services as both an arbitrator and mediator and, in my opinion, Brian is one of the very best attorneys engaged in alternative dispute resolution. Brian is smart, professional and dedicated and I greatly endorse him as a legal professional. Regards, Mark Rumson
