Highly recommended
It was a pleasure having Luke represent me for my bicycle accident (was hit by a car while riding my bicycle) and suffered a handful of broken bones. He is very patient, friendly and got things done very quickly. I highly recommend Luke and thanks for all the hard work.

Great Personal Injury Attorney
Luke Mitcheson represented me for a car crash where I injured my back. Luke got me a great settlement. He was responsive to all my calls and emails and thoroughly explained all the details of the case to me. Luke also made sure that all of my medical bills were paid for. If you’re in a car crash, then I can highly recommend Luke to handle it for you.

Excellent Lawyer, Communicator
I had a car accident and got rotated pelvis out of it, and even that I haven't seen a doctor right after the accident, Luke Mitcheson made sure that the insurance company paid for the treatment plus a settlement to cover for other damages, the process was straight forward, all I had to do is to go one time to his office, he explained the process to me, told me what to expect, and that is it, he took care of everything while I focused on my treatment, kept me up to date via email or phone, answered my questions when I received mails from the other insurance company, if any one get into a car accident, I recommend you go to a doctor for a check up right away then you to Luke the next day, I would have had to do lots of phone calls with the insurance company if I went to him right after the accident

Excellent attorney
Luke is a wonderful attorney, and I can't recommend him highly enough. He guided me through consultation, filing suit, deposition, and eventually accepting a fair pre-trial settlement for losses sustained in a motor vehicle accident. He was kind, courteous, and very knowledgeable.

I was in a serious car accident, and hired Luke as my personal injury lawyer. Luke was quick, attentive, and professional, which allowed me to focus on getting better and heal. He left my mind at ease. I was happy with the outcome of my case. Luke was able to answer questions I had in regards to my case. The process was efficient and swift. I would absolutely hire Luke again if I were ever in a personal injury case and would recommend him and his to any of my friends and family for personal injury. Thank you for everything!

I hired Luke as my attorney for a personal injury due to an auto accident. Luke was professional, attentive and quick to respond to any and all of my questions and concerns.I had what I consider quality advise from the start to trust the process and it allowed me to concentrate on healing and taking care of my needs,knowing that Luke "Had My Back". If the need ever arises I would hire him again in a minute. I would also recommend him to any friends or family in need of a personal injury lawyer. Thanks Luke For Helping Me Get A Great Outcome....Dan

Carmen’s Back.
Working with Luke was a breeze, even when my case was not. I felt confident and comfortable in his abilities to handle the task at hand. I felt involved, informed, and never had a problem getting in contact with my attorney regularly and even receiving call-backs within a day. Luke was honest and clear if there were any questions I had. He worked with all my concerns on medical benefits or coverage and injury recovery through many mediums. I am more than satisfied with his attention to my case. I would use his services again and I will continue to refer anyone with similar cases to him. Best Regards, CV

Well done, Sir!
After being side-swiped by a bus at the airport last summer, and then incessantly harassed by the opposing insurance company to sign a waiver, my general practice attorney recommended that I speak with Luke. From that point on, I was not to be disappointed. We spent two sessions together, where Luke laid out clearly and succinctly all the factors at work, including time horizon and probability of settling the case for a settlement. Just weeks ago, I received the good news that their side --- a notoriously litigious insurance company -- had decided to pay a settlement. I wholeheartedly recommend Luke for any personal injury cases that may arise. Very professional approach with a personal touch.

Great job by Luke!
A year ago I got in an accident, that left me with a nasty neck trauma and a concussion on top of the car damage. During the first week it became pretty clear that managing insurance agents from the at-fault driver and the two agents form my own insurance would be challenging. I couldn't move my neck and typing an email was taking way too long due to a concussion. Thanks to a friend's recommendation I connected with Luke Mitcheson to take on my case. (1) I haven'd worked with a layer before, though I learned quickly that I should leave the habit of micromanaging. Luke was very fast with updating me on the case: he'd always shoot an email on top of giving me a call. Since he doesn't charge hourly it was very nice of him. (2) I got bombarded with bills from MGH for urgent care, which did not make any sense since I was not at-fault. Luke spent a lot of time connecting with the hospital so they started sending bills to and mitigating payments with my insurance instead. I'm not sure whether I would've known what to do with all those bills and letters from the hospital. I even got a call from a mitigator hired by the clinic to find me and get me to pay the bill. Very very unpleasant feeling. But I had Luke as my attorney - so I simply gave them his phone number, and the hassle went away! (3) It was also nerve wracking being called in for an "Independent doctor" assessment: that's usually a doctor from the at-fault driver's insurance - so it's not in their interest to continue supporting your treatments. I had a good session with Luke beforehand and felt prepared for my exam: I was able to defend my condition and got more treatments thanks to that. (4) Almost a year after the accident I got a call from Luke with a great news that insurance is ready to settle my case. Even though the compensation he named seemed pretty good, he wanted to go back and keep pushing. And so he did - and a couple days later I got more than I was wishing for! (5) Just when I hoped bureaucracy was over, we realized that my PIP covered only $1k of my medical bills, putting the other $4k on me! Lawyer's commission does not depend on hick-ups like that. But Luke was so committed to making it right, that he continued fighting for me with PIP and we got those $4k back! I was very impressed with his work and the attention he gave to my case. I'm not looking to get into another accident, but if you or your loved ones got into fender-bender - reach out to Luke Mitcheson and he will handle your situation in a professional and fair manner!

Professional, thoughtful, organized
I was badly rear-ended in a car accident a little over a year ago and reached out to Luke to take my case. After my initial consultation, he encouraged me to focus on healing and seeking the right medical help for my issue, and provided clear guidance as to what we would need to do to proceed. He was very organized, responded to me in a timely manner, and expressed genuine concern that I receive the proper care and compensation for my injuries. When it came time to settle, he provided all options available and clearly explained the pros and cons with pursuing each option. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking a highly competent personal injury attorney!

Excellent Attorney
Luke handled a case for us and obtained a very favorable settlement. We were very happy with the service he provided. He communicated each step of the process effectively without overwhelming us. He also kept the process from intruding too deeply into our lives, taking care of a lot of the hard work behind the scenes. Overall, it was a great decision to hire Luke as our attorney.

Exceptional personal injury lawyer
I recently suffered severe pelvic and hip fractures secondary to a dog attacking my bicycle. There were multiple medical injuries with the prospect of post traumatic arthritis and a hip replacement. I also had to endure severe pain and a large financial loss. Attorney Mitcheson was relentless in his pursuit of fair compensation for my injuries and kept me informed and involved during the entire process. My phone calls were answered quickly, every time, and we collaborated on the approach to the case so that I could understand the process, be involved and be of use as a strong plaintiff. The settlement was large and helped bring a measure of closure to a very unfortunate situation.

If you are looking for legal assistance from an attorney with integrity who is committed I recommend Atty Luke Mitcheson.
Attorney Mitcheson provided me with services for Bankruptcy. He was recommended by another attorney. My first meeting with Attorney Mitcheson was informative and gave me a full illustration of the process. I felt comfortable because I felt that Attorney Mitcheson was open and honest with me of the process, he was upfront about the cost, the service he would provide and what I would need to do. Through the whole process the communication was not difficult. Any questions I had if Attorney Mitcheson did not know the answer, he would research it and provide me with the information. This was my first time going through this process, although it can be stressful the communication and Attorney's Mitcheson honesty through the whole process made it less stressful. If family or friends are in need of an attorney, I will recommend Attorney Mitcheson, because I know they will receive service with integrity.
