Will definitely refer to all my friends.
Had case against my former employer after they didn't want to pay medical bills after getting injured on the job. I was suprised how quickly settlement was. Now my medical bills are being taken care of.

Always has time to listen
I am fortunate enough to have someone to call when I don't know what to do. Mr. Healey listen and gives a smart response to the situation. I don't hesitate to recommend his services.

Highly experienced Attorney
Attorney Bernard P. Healy is a highly skilled and fair attorney. He helped my family with a case involving my 4 year old son involving an incident at his day care. Needless to say we were angry upset and didn't know what to do. When we sat down with Mr. Healy he assured us justice would be served and it was. He is dedicated and kept us updated at every turn. Through the years I've gone to Mr. Healy for other issues and he is always there for me right away. He works on Saturdays too. I highly recommend his services. He will do all he can for you from start to finish. Best and most honest lawyer in Rhode Island hands down.

Those responsible were made to pay
When my VW Westy was damaged by the tow truck when delivered at the repair shop, both the tow truck company and the shop owner stated they were not responsible..When getting estimates all estimators told me that insurance companies would just write the van off and I would get close to nothing... Then I called Bernard Healy...several months later both insurance companies settled with each paying half of the largest estimate...I was kept in the loop for the entire process and always knew what was going on. My case was handled professionally and relatively quickly. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call Bernard Healy.

Family Court Case
Mr. Healy agreed to help me, in an area he does not regularly practice, even on considerably short notice and familiarized himself with my case on his own before meeting with me. I, otherwise, would have been on my own, traveling from out of state, and was very nervous for the hearing at which I hoped the state would finally enforce the child support ordered five years prior of which very little had been paid to date. On the day of court, Mr. Healy intervened to ensure I was not badgered by the opposing counsel and successfully fought for the court to order a plan for payment to include the large amount of arrearages accrued. I would absolutely call Mr. Healy if this issue were to arise again and only regret not seeking his assistance much sooner.

Coastal Land Use Case
Throughout the course of this complicated and lengthy matter, he displayed a complete knowledge of the massive and intricate rules and regulations of this coastal and water/environmental issue and was able to deal with this potentially contentious matter in a professional and courteous manner. I have found Atty. Healy to be always well prepared and would not hesitate to recommend him for complicated or serious matters as well as those of a lesser nature.
