I contacted Joseph J. Brophy in hopes of pursuing a psychiatric medical malpractice case. He told me immediately on answering the phone that he isn't currently taking clients, but despite this *still* offered to speak with me about my case so that he might offer feedback concerning my odds in court, other potential attorneys, etc.
Mr. Brophy –– or "Joe," an address of familiarity and a complete lack of pretension –– proceeded to talk me through the specifics of my case for nearly twenty minutes, conveying both immense sympathy for my experience while also being very blunt about the difficulties I would face in proving lasting damages. He provided a very accessible outline of the way contingency cases work in the area of medical malpractice, and explained the limited types of psychiatric case likely to be taken on by a reputable attorney. He ultimately said he would not refer me to anyone, as he believed the case would prove too difficult, but was very humble in saying that he might be wrong, and encouraged me to keep looking if I feel I can, or must, meet the bar for a compelling case.
I finished the call with the knowledge that I likely do not have a case –– and yet I *still* felt compelled to look up a forum online where I could sing his praises. Mr. Brophy is an extremely kind, empathetic, and *smart* attorney who seems genuinely invested in helping others, to the point of providing unpaid educative labor to a rather clueless caller. Even given my disappointment with his conclusions, he still somehow left me feeling empowered by my new (albeit limited) understanding of this area of law.
If Mr. Brophy is this generous with individuals he knows he *won't* be representing, I can only imagine what it must be like to have him as one's attorney. 17 stars.

Mr. Brophy guided me along the way in a complex matter, sharing all aspects and options as it related to the situation. He continuously focused on trying to bring things to closure in the most efficient way possible with the best possible outcome. His commitment to not just providing legal services, but also real value throughout the process was exceptional. If only all attorneys were as professional, efficient and upstanding as Mr. Brophy - the legal profession would be much better off!!!

Mr. Brophy is a highly professional and caring attorney. He was the only attorney who answered my question on Avvo. There is about 1700 (!) more of his detailed answers to the other people . Actually, Mr. Brophy gave me a great and helpful assistance besides his answer on Avvo ,even though he doesn't practice law in my state. It was so thoughtful of him and so valuable to me! After dealing with indifference and unprofessionalism of many other attorneys I am kind of envious of the people who would get lucky to become Mr. Brophy's clients.

While living in Vermont and serving as a legal guardian to my gifted granddaughter, I had many questions that needed to be answered from a class action suit litigated in New York on her behalf. Joe Brophey was our shining light at the top of the hill. His professionalism, knowledge of the law, and ability to resolve legal questions are with great merit. His talent allowed us to recover funds that were deliberately kept so that my granddaughter would be made whole. Our family highly recommends Joe without reservation.

I feel very grateful and fortunate to have found you and most importanty for taking my case when other lawyers didn't believe I had a case.
Thanks for handling my case with both patience and professionalism. My hearing impairment made it a little difficult at times but you made it easier for me by meeting me halfway all the time. I will most definitely use you If I needed to again and will refer you to anyone who can use your services in the future.
