Lawyer In Chief
Being an individual of some stature and respect within the South Shore community, I was in dire need of David Flanagan's professional services and experience when I had a run-in with the authorities. My situation was an OUI that severely complicated my life, my standing and my career not to mention the costs and restrictions. This was my own fault and I accept the responsibility for the consequences. David related to my predicament and managed my case with great skill and effect. He is a solid citizen, personable and fair. Balanced with a practical, driven, and confident practice of the law, he earned my utmost respect. If you have a run-in with the authorities and David Flanagan accepts your case, my recommendation is to follow his advice and let him represent you. As a personal note to David, I am grateful for your care of my case. You made it possible for me to restore my life to normal. Respectfully submitted, D3

Driving to Endanger Charge
I was cited for driving to endanger - negligent operation when I crashed my motorcycle. An application for criminal complaint was filing against me by the Plymouth County Police Department. Dave Flanagan was referred to me by a friend and I soon found out that Dave had experience dealing with cases very similar to mine. He was able to walk me through and explain each step of the process and made sure I understood why I was being charged and how we were going to approach the situation. Dave was ultimately able to get my case dismissed prior to arraignment. Throughout the process, Dave was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. I would recommend him to anyone.

Contacting David Flanagan was the best decision I could have made. He was able to achieve the best possible outcome
A couple months ago I made the biggest mistake of my life, i did something completley out of my character and as a result I faced life changing criminal charges. I would have done anything to take it back, but of course thats not possible. Because of this mistake I had the risk of losing my life goals and dreams if I were to have a charge on my record. Contacting David Flanagan was the best decision I have ever made. He was knowledgable, honest and reassuring. After meeting he showed to be confident, and determined in pursuing my case in order to get the best outcome possible. David was able to get all charges dropped. I was never charged with anything, and I have a clean record today. I truly was given a second chance at life. I owe all of this to the hard work and determination of David Flanagan. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

Review for David Flanagan
Unfortunatelly, my wife and I were in a position to hire a lawyer. This was in regard to our son who was sceduled to meet with the Clerk regarding vandalism. After meeting with David Flanagan, we were very impressed and we decided to hire him which turned out to be a great decision. David represented our son at the Hingham District court. He was not only able to get our son off of any charges, but my son also does not have a record. The best comment actually came from the Clerk at the Courthouse. The clerk said "you were smart to hire a lawyer - and even smarter to hire David Flanagan - he is one of the best". Thank you David - my wife and I appreciate all that you did for our son.

The disease of Alchaholism and drug addiction.
About five or six years ago I was going through a very tough time in my business and personal life. I am a recovering Alcoholic , addict that got himself in trouble with the law for possession of class A and B drug possession. David was outstanding in everything he did for me. Where I am a successful business man in my community I was totally ashamed and afraid of what this would do to my reputation Dave handled my case with the utmost secrecy for my reputation. We went to court to be arraigned and before I new it the case had been dismissed and I paid the required fines.( No shame) Dave handled my case assuring me the whole time that things would work out ok. His professionalism was unparalleled to any other attorney I had ever worked in business or personal. I would recommend Dave to anyone for just about any type of legal trouble. His professionalism and honesty were impeccable !!!!

David has a great handle on his business
The most impressive thought that comes to mind is, even when on vacation out of the country, David took the time to coach me through a legal matter. That says a lot for the level of attention he provides hos clients. I. would highly recommend David if you are looking for an attorney you can count on.

Great Attorney!
When I was arrested, I felt like the whole world was against me. I had never been in trouble before, so I did not know what to expect. Flanagan and Associates put my mind at ease by providing excellent legal advice. As a client, I felt that my case was being handled by knowledgeable professionals who truly cared about my well being. Now that my case is resolved, I can finally put the incident behind me and get on with my life, Flanagan and Associates made that possible!

Estate Planning / Family Law
Dave was referred to me by a couple of friends and I was extremely pleased with his work. Dave was great to work with - very easy-going, yet professional. I highly recommend Dave and intend to use Dave and his law office for all my future legal needs.

Atty David Flanagan is fantastic --criminal and civil cases--awesome!
Most recently, we hired Atty Flanagan and his team for a business/contract case that seemed destined for a lengthy and costly court battle. However, Atty Flanagan and his team handled this case beautifully and the case was resolved quickly and outside of court. This saved us so much money and aggravation. It was such a relief to hand over our legal problem to Atty Flanagan and know that we could relax while he and his team worked tirelessly on our behalf. I highly recommend Atty David Flanagan for criminal and civil matters; professional and persistent he has come through for us every time.

Highly recommend Attorney Flanagan
I have 3 sons and attorney Flanagan has represented 2 of them when they got in a little trouble in their teenage years. We can look back now and chuckle a little as David did an outstanding job handling both their situations. At the time we were going through it, there was no chuckling. Attorney Flanagan made the boys understand the seriousness of the charges they faced (so a lesson was learned) and proceeded to keep both their records clean. David has also represented young men who I have sent his way that worked for my family business and has proven time and again to be a go to guy. I highly recommend Attorney Flanagan

One of the best Lawyers in the State at what he does
I was arrested on 6 charges including oui and reckless driving and had to appear in court two days later. Attorney Flanagan spent an hour with me on the phone reviewing the case and setting my mind at ease, he made me feel better knowing I had an experienced lawyer in my corner. The day of my court appearance he personally drove 2 hours in traffic to be there to represent me. Dave Flanagan did a excellent job representing me and was able to get all the charges continued keeping my record clean.

Great Company and closing attorney
Dave and his staff are wonderful. Professional and respond quickly to every request we have on all of our closings. I go to every closing and Dave is outstanding at the table. He makes sure the buyer, seller and realtors are happy and understand everything that is going on. Everyone leaves the table happy. We all here at Mortgage Corp. East enjoy working with David and his staff and would highly recommend his company to anyone.

David P Flanagan
Mr. Flanagan and his office came up huge for my son recently when he found himself in trouble with the police. As his father, i didnt know what to do or where to go advice. A friend had referred Dave Flanagan to represent my son when we had to go to court. Dave prepared us from the very start before we had to go to court; during all court proceedings; and after, along with some private advice he had for my son. The service was excellent; the price more than fair; and most importantly-Dave reassured us through the whole process.

Neighborhood...
Mr Flanagan handled a neighborhood dispute case for my husband. It involved another lawyer as the plantiff. The case lasted forever, but Mr Flanagan kept us informed all the time of what was going on. He showed up in court ready for the trial. He impressed the jury with his knowledge of the law and my husband was found not guilty 2 years after the most stupidest accusations. I would recommend Mr Flanagan. He is impressive.
