A Great Lawyer
David is an excellent lawyer, listens carefully to minute details. He helped me untangle my car crash situation with the insurance and updated me of the evolution of my case all the way to the end. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who wants a successful output of their car accidents and injuries cases...

Words escape me
I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don't believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on.

Best Lawyer in Boston
I was in a really bad car accident back in 2010 and the insurance guys were giving me such a hard time. I wasn't getting anything resolved except denial of their responsibility. I found Altman & Altman and I met with Dave after meeting with two other law firms. I was very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail I was given with Dave's firm. I made the right choice by hiring Dave to handle my case. He handled all disputes with the insurance company, sorting out all my bills, keeping me updated, and in the end delivered as promised. I would totally recommend this guy and his team. You're in good hands when you got these guys on your side. Like he says "they are the best lawyers in Boston"....Thanks Again man.
