Simply the Best
I highly recommend Attorney Thomas Babson Kane. He treated me fairly and went out of his way to help and guide me through the legal process of selling a home. His rates were very reasonable and his response time was impressive! He was a pleasure to work with.

Thomas Babson Kane is an Excellent Attorney!!
Attorney Tom Kane is an honest, professional attorney who has the client's best interests in mind. He clearly explains the type of service(s) he is providing to his clients and his legal fees are reasonable. I have known him for several years and have hired him for my personal legal needs. I would highly recommend Attorney Kane to my family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances for legal services in a heartbeat!

I have known Tom Kane for many years. He is the attorney i recommend most often. His staff is also fantastic to work with. He is down to earth, knowledgeable and very willing and eager to help.

wonderful attorney!
Attorney Kane is thoughtful, well informed, responsive, and even has a great sense of humor (always nice in a lawyer)... Handled 3 real estate closings for us this year (buying and selling)... process was smooth on all counts, and Attorney Kane always went the extra mile to find the information that we needed, including going to town hall to research easement issues on one of our properties!

Attorney Kane never returned any of my phone calls and his staff couldn't be bothered to help me. I always felt like I was a burden. Attorney Kane promised work to be done in a week and a month later nothing had been done on my case, which made me feel like I wasn't important. So I took my case to another attorney.
