Not only does this lawyer never answer his calls by a human voice and or phone, you have to leave a message. Then maybe if you are lucky you get an emailed response. Professionalism... NOPE. Not my idea of professional communication. Silence is no excuse for not returning calls. When my case was settled him and/or his partner, both got paid 1/3 of my settlement fees plus I paid the filing fees and my checks were returned to the DEFENDANT, my employer. So my release contract stated I would be paid within 10 business days. Today is business day 20 and I have still not been paid my settlement funds. My regular personal attorney called my employer and they returned the mail back into the postal system. You would think when a person is out of work with unemployment delayed that your own lawyer would understand the need for your settlement funds to received timely. However, no, the Defendant was allowed to violate the terms of the agreement of being paid within ten business day and today makes 20 business days because Thomas or Lou sent my checks back to the Defendant (Employer). The Defendant then put my checks back into snail mail. You would hope that your lawyer is professional enough to take your correct address after meeting you in person, singing representation forms, etc. You would think they know the address of the Defendant as well. Don't assume anything. This lawyer was more like the silent partner who has the malpractice insurance he shares, who doesn't have it. Too much ego and not enough common sense and zero people skills.

I came across Thomas Beauvais, Esq. through the Mass Legal website. In my case, he was a pro bono attorney for those with credit issues. Mr. Beauvais was direct but respectful in going over personal matters. He was prompt in the process and notified me of any actions taken on my behalf or by the court in a timely manner.

I have lived in a lodging house owned by a large non-profit agency in Boston for the past eight years. I have had to endure rodent infestation and unsanitary conditions. Finally, I filed a complaint on my own in Boston Housing Court. After the second hearing, I realized I needed an attorney. I went to the Volunteer Lawyer's Project and was provided with an excellent housing attorney. A month later, they referred Mr. Beauvais to me. Together, these two attorneys provided me with exceptional legal assistance. The case dragged on for twenty-two months; however, this past June we finally had our day in court. A two day, twelve person, jury trial was held and the jury deliberated for one hour and ten minutes. They returned a verdict on all counts in my favor and awarded me money damages.
Throughout the trial and preparation, I felt completely comfortable with his expertise and cheerful disposition. In all matters, he exceeded my wildest expectations. His closing argument to the jury was not a five star but a ten star!
Without hesitation, I would recommend Mr, Beauvais to my friends!
