Attorney Harrington recently represented me in a drunk driving case. His knowledge of the law and more importantly the system was extremely helpful. Walking into Court with him made me feel very comfortable because it was clear that he know what he was doing. It was clear before the trial started that all of the Court personal and the Judge respected him. Once the trial began, I really knew that I made the right decision in hiring him. He cross examined the arresting officer with such precision that it was evident that he knew more about my case that the DA and even the cop. He really knew the case and was a pleasure to work with.

Great, reputable, responsive. From the beginning he was very informative, asked me questions, and showed concern and careful consideration. He treated my like a person, not just another client when reviewing my case. He returned every phone call and kept me informed for every notion he made before and during trial. He used his gut feeling, which I liked because every case is different. He was very personable and also knew the community very well. I would most definitely recommend him.

Joe and I worked together as prosecutors in Norfolk County. He has a great reputation in the New Bedford/Fall River area. I have sent him several referrals and my clients have always been extremely satisfied. When someone needs an experienced attorney in Bristol County, I always refer them to Joe.
