I hired Attorney Andrews to defend me in a civil litigation case, and an appeals case. Attorney Andrews was kind, compassionate, and understanding. He presented himself very knowledgeable and well rounded in case law in the district courtroom and with the Massachusetts appeals court. He always kept mine, and my families best interest first and foremost. He returned every phone call promptly and answered ever question, which led us to a win and a resolution. Some lawyers can be taught "book smart" however some lawyers don't come down to the personal level of what a person and their family could be going through. Attorney Andrews brings that level to an understanding in such a compassionate way. He has an intense amount of patience, and makes you feel protected from a court system that at times does not do the right thing by innocent people. Attorney Andrews fights was what is right, and if he feels that, you may not be doing the right thing, he presents the law to you so that you can understand and make the right choices for you and your family. My family was successful with Attorney Andrews help. Attorney Andrews actual helped a family that was torn apart from the court system back together. When your involved in any court proceeding it can be a very scary place, and most lawyers won't even talk to you unless your wealthy. Attorney Andrews takes a view of the whole situation and just does the right thing by all. When my family was in court, to have the opposition attorney come up to you and say, "You are very lucky, you have a very good lawyer defending you." that says it all. Attorney Andrews is an attorney that my family would use again, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to "win" there case. Attorney Andrews also has an incredible amount of common sense and a compassionate side to bring you through it. When your in court you want someone you can trust and who has the tenacity to fight for you and your rights, with Attorney Andrews you get more....please check him out if your in need of an attorney, my family is honored to have been so lucky.

I have worked with Paul, and I have tried case(s) with him. His contributions to my "Trial Teams" have been substantive and helpful. He is an experienced litigator, who is comfortable handling both civil and criminal cases. His well-honed analytical skills and case-tested instincts are value-added assets for any client. He is comfortable in the courtroom and in front of juries. He is also personable and friendly. I have referred Paul in the past without hesitation to prospective clients for matters my firm did not handle and/or when, for whatever reason, my firm was not able to provide the requested representation. I will continue to do so in the future. I consider him to be an excellent attorney.
