LEGAL MALPRACTICE? HELPING PEOPLE RECOVER THEIR LOSSES FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

Over the past 40 years, the focus of my Boston law practice has been on litigation and trial work in the areas of legal malpractice, business litigation and personal injury.

 

My law firm is based in Boston, Massachusetts, but I have successfully handled cases in Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine. In addition, I will consult on cases in other states in cooperation with local counsel.

 

I am widely known for my experience and success in the area of legal malpractice. I take pride in helping ordinary people who are the victims of legal negligence recover compensation for their losses. I also advise clients when it is possible to appeal decisions lost because of their lawyer's mistakes.

 

Beyond legal malpractice, I have a track record of success in business litigation as well as personal injury cases such as dog bites and motor vehicle accidents.

 

My goal is always to help my clients resolve legal issues without litigation and in the shortest possible time through out-of-court negotiations, mediation and arbitration. However, when a favorable negotiated settlement is not possible, I bring to bear more than 30 years of experience arguing cases at all levels of the court systems in Massachusetts and other New England states.

 

I frequently handle cases on a contingency basis, meaning there are no attorney fees unless I recover a judgment or settlement in your favor. I have an extensive record of winning positive results for my clients.

Brilliant, Compassionate Advocate
I am a retired physician. I turned to Attorney Kazarian to help me sue two individuals who tried to defraud me out of my retirement funds, with the help of their unethical lawyer. Attorney Kazarian worked tirelessly to protect me and my family from those individuals. He is a brilliant, compassionate advocate who has rendered valuable service to me. I give him my highest recommendation. If you need a legal malpractice attorney, he is the man to see.

HAVE RECOMMENDED AND WILL AGAIN
Dealing wtih several attys in the past including a family memeber, Atty Charles Kazarian has by far been the best he won the Malpractice law suit that I originaly called him about with a judgement 3 times what I expected. I have called him on other occasions and he has been very helpful including recommending an atty other then himself, I believe this alone shows he is in this for the best interest of the client. I not only would highly recomend this atty but have and will do so again

Lucky to have found Mr. Kazarian
Having dealt with several ineffective attorneys, I lost faith in the legal system and its representatives. Charles Kazarian has changed my opinion. He is a smart, knowledgeable and experienced attorney, who understands his clients and gives sound, concise advice in a direct and effective way. Not only did he put me on the right path, he also saved me a lot of time, effort and money. I recommend him whole heartedly.

I highly recommend Attorney Kazarian
Because of an incredible and thankfully successful experience my family had with Attorney Kazarian 4 years ago, I engaged him to represent me in a claim for injuries I suffered in a motor vehicle accident. He and his team including Scott and Mairead were clear in outlining the steps of the process and responded quickly to any calls or emails. I knew I was in good hands and based on the result of the claim, I was. I wouldn't for a moment hesitate to recommend him to anyone. His wonderful sense of humor is a bonus!

EXCELLENT ADVICE
I approached Kazarian with a possible legal malpractice case. He was clear and concise about the likelihood I'd prevail - my case wasn't as strong as I thought. Told me he'd get outstanding fees reduced 50% which happened quickly. Professional and responsive. Reasonable fee. I would use Kazarian again.

Excellent Attorney
I had the privilege and honor of having Charles as my attorney. Charles provided legal advice and guidance throughout an extremely intricate malpractice case. Charles and his staff, especially Mairead and Scott, treated me as a family member rather than a number. Whenever I called with a question or any concern, Charles was always available to ease my concerns, even though he had numerous other cases to deal with. Throughout this extremely difficult and complicated case, Charles showed what a terrific lawyer he is. Tenacious, extremely knowledgeable, great sense of humor and “gets down to business” when he has to. I will forever be grateful to Charles and highly recommend him, without any reservations, to anyone looking to get justice in any malpractice case.

Attorney Kazarian represented me in connection with a motor vehicle accident from I sustained injuries resulting in 2 surgeries to date with the likelihood of another in the relatively near future. Mr. Kazarian offered their best practice, solicited my input and included it in their filings. They obtained the outcome I had hoped for. I give him the highest recommendation fir s your seeking legal representation.

Understanding, patient, honest
I spoke with Charles about an issue I was having, he took the time to clearly understand my needs. After speaking with him for almost an hour, he put me in touch with the right people to solve my problem. Do not hesitate to contact Charles if you feel you have been treated poorly by an attorney, you owe it to yourself.

Genuinely cares about "Justice for All"
Dealing with several previous attorneys, an unlicensed contractor, and a prominent insurance company was most distressing. Attorney Kazarian personally contacted me to review my case. He certainly validated my complaint; explaining both the negative and positive aspects of the case. His sense of humor is great as well! Attorney Kazarian wants justice to prevail for all who are not of affluent status. His paralegal, Mairead, returns all emails and answers all questions in a timely manner. She is most kind and considerate.

Relentless, meant in the best way possible!
Worked with me (and taught me a lot while doing so!) in connection with a liability claim against a local business, which was settled to my satisfaction: they're thorough and patient, even in the face, sometimes, of my impatience -- and "they" include Sue Morse, Scott Kremer, and Mairead Hardy.

He acted fast and effective
We had trouble with our real estate lawyer. and as the result, lost our case. Mr. Kazarian went after him, and helped us return a part of the loss. Extremely knowledgeable, Mr. Kazarian is friendly and sympathetic as well. He would do whatever it takes to restore justice.

Practical and Fair
I had been through a series of complex legal matters that were botched by some the most reputable lawyers from large firms in Boston. When I had a dispute with one of the law firms about their handling of my case and the fees, and I needed legal representation, I was referred by lawyer acquaintances to a number of lawyers from large, reputable firms. None of them seemed to know how to approach my case without creating more uncertainty, complexity and exorbitant cost. Mr. Kazarian and Mr. Malloy were practical in terms of determining whether my case had merit or was frivolous, whether an attempt to settle was realistic, whether there were enough damages to make a malpractice suit financially worthwhile, and whether there was enough leverage to bring about an easy settlement. They were clever and insightful about where to find the leverage. They understood the strain that these matters had put on my life and appreciated the value of closure. They made a very fair and manageable financial arrangement with me. After Mr. Kazarian spent two hours discussing the case with me at an initial meeting, I paid a flat fee up front, and their firm absorbed a court fee that was incurred to expedite a court order. I'm sure this would not be a reasonable financial agreement in every case, but it made sense in my particular case. After repeatedly struggling with lawyers who seemed to need guidance at every turn and still could not find solutions to my legal matters, and who made the cases go on endlessly for exorbitant hourly fees, it was such a relief to have lawyers who knew exactly what to do and who did it fairly, reasonably and efficiently. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Kazarian and Mr. Malloy.

Professional, knowledgeable and communicates well
Mr .Kazarian's office (through Sue Morse) handled my accident case and I was very impressed with their conduct. Mr. Kazarian and Ms. Morse clearly explained issues, options and reasonable outcomes. I never felt like I didn't know where I or my case stood, and I felt I was well informed throughout. They acted in a timely manner and secured an acceptable settlement. I would certainly use them again, and would recommend them to others.

Excellent Firm, Extremely Knowledgeable Boston Attorney
I would highly recommend Attorney Kazarian to handle their case especially litigation such as personal injury, legal malpractice and medical malpractice claims. I have had Attorney Kazarian personally handle my personal injury claim and recommended him to a relative for a medical malpractice claim and we both could not have been more pleased with his representation. The staff are extremely friendly and the attorneys always take their time out to talk with you over the phone to answer any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Attorney Kazarian and his firm.

A lawyer that seems sincere and honest
I contacted attorney Kazarian about a personal injury case. I was represented by another attorney that we didn't have faith in. On a Tuesday evening at 7pm he had spent over an hour on the phone answering questions that we had concerning our attorney that we weren't happy with. Kazarian law offices handle legal malpractice cases and even though half way through the conversation he probably realized that we didn't have a case. He still took the time to answer all of our questions and made us less anxious about the decision we had made with our current attorney. I would recommend anyone to have a consultation with Charles even if you have spoken to other attorney's. He seems to genuinely care about helping people. Thank you very much Charles.

Excellent advice
Although Mr. Kazarian declined to take my case, he was very informative, told me where to file my claim, helped me with the language I should use on my complaint, and advised me on other steps I need to take to facilitate my claim. He stayed on the phone with me until I was comfortable and understood everything he explained to me. Very polite, patient and sympathetic to my situation. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know that needs a lawyer.
