One of the best I've ever done business with!
I've dealth with many,many lawyers in my business the past 29 years. Hindell is one of the best lawyers I have ever worked with. She recently resolved a serious credit problem for me that could have cost me thousands. Not only a talented lawyer, Hindell has a kind and compassionate heart.

Successful Lawyer with Articulate, Compelling, Arguments Strongly Delivered
Attorney Grossman has successfully represented my husband on several occasions against his ex-wife’s litigious and aggressive attorney in what have been incredibly acrimonious and long-standing legal battles. She has provided superlative legal guidance as well as strong emotional support, for which we are grateful. She is articulate, offers compelling legal arguments, and demonstrates exceptional mediation skills in her attempts at out-of-Court conciliation to minimize our expenses and seek resolution. She has in-depth knowledge of the law and offers very compassionate guidance. We are proud to have her represent us and she has saved us significant further court actions and fees. I recommend her without reservation as a high-quality, high-value and highly valued, attorney.

Strong, Smart, Sensible, Seasoned Attorney
I have had several divorce lawyers throughout the years and by far Attorney Grossman has been the most competent and trustworthy of the group. Given our past history with bad attorneys, my wife and I started out slowly to get comfortable with Attorney Grossman and over a short period of time it was clear that she was very good at what she does, provides excellent advice, listens to her client's desires, and works constructively in a resolution. We handed over the whole case to her. She isn't a hot-head as many attorneys can be but she deals with these hot-heads in a very decisive fashion but in a calming way. The one word that describes Attorney Grossman the best is Professional. That is what you can count on.

Smart go-getter you can trust
My case has been extremely complex, and due to aggressive and obstructionist tactics by the opposing lawyer, a difficult one to manage. Hindell Grossman has been ahead of the game at every point, listens carefully, examines the relevant case law and available evidence closely, and makes wise decisions. She acts quickly, but does not over-react. She works efficiently and she gets results. She is discreet and professional in all dealings, but warm and supportive in ways that make a worried client feel safe. I have had to consult many lawyers in the course of a long complicated litigation, and Hindell Grossman is the tops.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jul 17
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"In 2007, I was a law clerk for the Probate and Family Court and had the opportunity to observe Attorney Grossman litigate a divorce case at trial. She was sharp, professional, and good on her feet. The judge I clerked for was impressed. Since then, she has been opposing counsel on several cases handled by my firm. Again, she impressed me and my colleagues. Attorney Grossman is a good attorney and a class act. I endorse her."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Grossman is one of the finest Family Law attorneys in Massachusetts. She is a strong and zealous advocate for her clients and a true credit to the legal profession. Her volunteer work has contributed so much to our community and her reputation is outstanding. I highly recommend all of her legal services."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I specialize in out-of-court resolution of domestic matters, but if settlement efforts break down, I want to refer the client to a skillful litigator-- knowledgeable, no-nonsense, and very focused on obtaining results. This describes Hindell, and I have seen her in action in difficult cases that are resistant to settlement. While she will not overlook an opportunity to settle, she will firmly and diligently do all that is necessary to provide the best representation to her client in a court proceeding."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

Hindell is a zealous advocate for her clients, and I wholeheartedly endorse her."
