wonderful people, highly skilled attorney
we met with greg connly about a motorcycle accident and i cannot say enough about the level of professionalism and passion that greg had concerning the case. he is truly a very gifted lawyer and a wonderful human being. i would feel so confident using greg to handle any case. he was far and above the most knowledgeable lawyer that we spoke to about the case. he made a lot of points about the case that others overlooked and he was willing to take on a case that had some complicated issues. dont hesitate to have him on your team. barry was also amazing. great people, real human beings work here, you are not a number to them.

Car Accident Settlement
Greg was a pleasure to deal with during the whole long process of suing both the drivers insurance company and then my own insurance policy. Greg kept me informed of the process and answered any of my questions or concerns that I had. During the one deposition, Greg could have just meet me at the Insurance companies attorneys law office but he first meet me at his office and then let me follow him to ensure I got there with no problems. I would highly recommend Greg and his law office.

Glad we found Greg! Well done! Highly recommended!
We needed a lawyer from Boston area and found one through web search. My wife and I had to travel all the way from Michigan so it was not very convenient for us to travel back and forth. We were new to this process and I'm glad Greg was there to guide us and explain clearly about a lot of what if scenarios. He informed us through email and phone to let us know how to proceed and plan ahead. We had to travel a couple of times but it was worth it. At the end we took Greg's advice and it went well in our favor. Barbara was very nice to us as well. Highly recommended!

Grateful to have them on my side!
Greg and his wife, Barbara, were extremely helpful to me with my legal issue. I always felt they had my best interest and guided me through the process with ease. They were readily available to me whenever I had questions or concerns which I consider to be very personable. I would highly recommend them to anyone who would be in need of such professionalism.
