Stumbled upon and Can't say enough about this MAN but was sure glad we crossed paths when I was in need of his expertise ! ! !
Like I said I can't say enough about this Man , Hi, I'm Norman I had the honor of Mr Levin to represent me in early 1998 , late 1997 Dec when I was hit from behind with a large metal door while at work for the State of Conn. it took a lot of time to get thru it but Paul stuck it out with me and made things happen , I have since sent people to him with pleasure to do so knowing he would do the best for them as He did for me , one thing that stood out memorable to me was when all other lawyers I contacted wanted me to get back to them once I had a permanency rating Paul seemed more concerned on how to help and he sure did his best to do this for me , compassion , honesty , just an all around dear man as I see it , so it is with admiration of this quality that I now feel the need to send people to his door anytime I think he may help anyone as he did for me , I just happened to stumble upon his expertise when I was in need it took some time to determine my medical problem and when workers comp. didn't want to do what was needed for me Paul stepped to the plate and hit a HOME RUN .... when we were going to settle out of court which Paul put together in a mediation which the Insurance decided to back out of even though the Judge recommended it be settled , He proceeded with 1 to 2 weeks of trails , which I think Paul was happy to go forward with believing to do better for me in court , this net my case more then the settlement that was going to go thru out of court as he thought would happen and it did work out to be in my favor , with great pleasure I tell this story to anyone I come across that needs help in these types of matters and I tell you my story here as well , I was blessed to meet this man and gain what I now cherish as a sincere friendship that has developed from my need of his expertise and Paul when you read this I want to thank you again for all you have done for me and being there for me when others were more concerned about permanency ratings and not the person THANK YOU and even that isn't enough for all you did on my behalf , I wish all well and if you are in need of help get Paul in your corner and then work on getting well and leave the laws to him he will do right by you just like he did for me , with pleasure I recommend Attorney Paul Levin to do the bidding for anyone in need of his expertise , A very satisfied client Norman ..........

Great workers compensation /personal injury/ malpractice attorney
We highly recommend attorney Levin for workers compensation issues and personal injury cases. He helped my wife after she was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. We have referred our friends to him and they have been very happy with the services he provides. He's tough!!!

Paul Goes the Extra Mile
Paul spent close to an hour reviewing my case with me. He followed up the next day after reading the information I sent him. He didn't have the bandwidth to accept my case at that time but he went out of his way to get me a strong referral. He wanted to make sure I had representation. He also offered to consult with my new attorney on my case. If you want a sincere, smart and committed attorney, Paul is your guy. Think no further and hire him.

Outstanding Attorney
I have worked with Paul Levin’s office on numerous occasions for litigation purposes. I retained Paul’s firm to work on several workers compensation claims and personal injury claims resulting from an at fault driver’s negligence. Paul and his staff assisted me in every step of the way from the day of a major motor vehicle accident, through the multiple surgeries, into therapy and post therapy. Paul and his staff are extremely compassionate, patient, and understanding with each case they work. I have known Paul and his legal team for well over 15 years now and continue to use his legal knowledge, expertise and understanding of complex personal injury law. Paul is committed to excellence and dedication to his clients by building rapport with outstanding professionalism. I have personally referred numerous clients to his firm that emboldens his ability to fight strong and achieve great monetary gains and seek justice. His dedication to the pursuit of justice and negotiating skills is evident by the way he carries himself as an attorney and as an individual. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a fair, honest and straightforward attorney who goes after companies and individuals regardless of the roadblocks that are put in the way. Paul and his team do not let outside noise taint their ability to achieve greatness in litigation and settlement. If you are looking for muscle, walls of law, and perseverance look no further than the Law offices of Paul Levin.

Excellent representative
I hired this lawyer for a personal injury case and he took on my case and settled one year before the expected time for the maximum amount allowed in my case. Him and his office went above and beyond doing everything they could at my convince such as coming to my home when I couldn't make it to the office.

Paul Levin is a great attorney! I would recommend him to anyone.
Paul Levin helped me and my family through one of the most difficult times of our lives. He was very caring and understanding of our situation. He always made sure we were well informed regarding our case and always responded to our calls. He made himself available at all time and never made us feel bad for bothering him. His knowledge, experience, and compassion is outstanding. We couldn't of asked for a better attorney.

Professional
In my own peperspective I'm not agree if someone write negative comments from Paul Levin, because he is a professional, responsible, and always keep me inform about my case. We are working together for a few years and he always try to get you the most money that he can. I can recommend him as a lawyer and you can trust him.

performance review of Paul Levin
Paul is extremely knowledgable about personal injury law. In particular, he knew about traumatic brain injury and how it would affect me for the rest of my life. He was supportive throughout the long process and kept me well appraised of where my case stood throughout the 2 1/2 years it took to litigate and go to trial. He knew exactly how the jury would react when defense motions portrayed the insurance company in its true light through foolish objections and he convinced the judge to rule in my favor with regards to those objections. As a result of his skills, the jury ruled in my favor. I highly recommend Paul Levin.

Would highly recommend
I endorse Attorney Levin’s work as an attorney who has served our community well for many years. I have interacted with his office as a client seeking legal guidance personally (though he has never charged me money for the level of assistance required in those instances). I have also referred friends over to his office from time to time. At these times, he was always kind, courteous and willing to share his legal expertise. I have also provided dictation /transcription services to Attorney Levin‘s office and other attorneys to whom he has introduced me to in order to grow my business. In that capacity, I have had many occasions to observe the results that he obtains for his clients and the very hard and dedicated work ethic demonstrated. I would highly recommend Attorney Levin to family and friends if they ever need help with a legal matter. I have no doubt that he would work diligently to achieve the most favorable outcome for his clients and they would certainly benefit from his professionalism, integrity and service.

Continued the Fight
After years of fighting a difficult case for me, Attorney Levin continued to try to make things right. Through a long trial and against many odds, he prevailed and won the case against a medical community intent on keeping things quiet. He is intelligent and resourceful and seemed to always be one step ahead of some very high profile defense lawyers. Having won the case against the defendants, he was not satisfied with the financial outcome. In the interest of his client, he appealed the case and was able to obtain some additional financial relief for me. I cannot say enough about the honesty, integrity and sincerity that was evident throughout my years of dealing with Attorney Levin.

Excellent Lawyer
"I was fortunate to find Attorney Levin to take on my very difficult medical negligence case. He is a man of true integrity and high morals. Against some very difficult circumstances, he persevered in uncovering every detail of a situation that was being swept under the rug at many levels. He is truly interested in seeking justice in the face of a medical system that was less than honest. I would recommend Attorney Levin to anyone who is seeking honest and righteous legal representation."

Dear attorney Levin
We are having difficulty finding words to express how grateful we are to you for representing Ridvan throughout his Workers' Comp process. November 2009 was a very difficult time for our family. We spoke to different attorneys during that time, and always ended up going home with gut feelings. However, those feelings went away the moment we met you. We cannot tell you what a relief it has been for us to know that we had your representation. Your legal expertise, professionalism, and integrity have been continually evident. We could not believe that such a busy man still found time to keep us informed about the case and you were very confident in your course of actions. It is with great respect, I type these words. Thank You! Please know that we would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of an injury lawyer. With greatest respect, Ridvan & Luljeta Zhinipotoku

My experience with Paul Levin
I only met Paul once and from that day on, he has helped me with money, my van and my case with workman's compensation. I was waiting for a back operation for almost a year now, Paul went to a hearing on my behalf and now the surgery is approved. Thanks to Paul Levin I can get back on with my life.
Posted by Paul | May 5, 2015
Didn't even give me 5 minutes to explain my case
I called Attorney Levin's offices to ask for a free consultation and his secretary was nice enough to put me through to him immediately. I began telling Attorney Levin about the attack I suffered, but he quickly cut me off and told me "Time is money". So much for the free 30 minute consultation.
Response from Paul Levin May 14, 2015
This individual never identified himself as someone interested in a free consultation and told me that another Lawyer had referred him. Curiously, the gentleman could not recall the name of the other attorney that had done so. After spending a few minutes with the gentleman on the telephone, it became apparent that i could not help him as his issues were outside my area of expertise which i had repeatedly advised him. This Gentleman nevertheless wanted to keep telling him his story , conveying confidential information even though I made it clear that i could not help him.
