True Professionalism and Expertise
I am so thankful I contacted Mr. Brennan for a consultation! He was compassionate, knowledgeable, and took time to explain my options. He thoroughly answered all of my questions and we discussed next steps. He responded to my inquiry very quickly and followed up after we spoke. I feel much more at ease with my situation.

Great lawyer
So grateful for everything Tim and his associates have done for me! It was my first, and hopefully my last, time going to court for a traffic violation and I had no idea what to expect or what course of action was best for me. Tim and his associates were very helpful in addressing all of my questions and concerns in a prompt and thorough manner. I can not recommend Tim Brennan and his associates enough!

Great Attorney, Fought for Me.
Can't say enough about Tim and the help he provided me. I was injured at work, and I didn't know what my rights were or what I should do. Tim thoroughly explained the law to me, what my rights were and the best way to protect myself. He helped me through a difficult time and I was very happy with how my case was handled. If you've been injured at work, give Tim a call. He cares about his clients.

Work related injury
Tim helped us with a work related injury, this whole process was over 3 year's, because the injury was so bad, he never gave up, and guided me through the whole process, ensuring that I received everything that I was entitled to. Tim is an excellent lawyer and most importantly, he is a kind and caring person. I would definitely reccomend him

A thorough, personable and efficient lawyer!
Tim was excellent to have as an attorney for my workers compensation case. I was very happy with his care for my compensation case which can be quite a stressful thing to handle, Brennan Law Offices helped take some of that stress off my back during those times. I was very happy with his work and the doctors he was able to refer me to were very helpful.

One of the Best!
Tim Brennan is a great attorney! If you want an attorney that cares about his clients, give him a call. I wasn’t the greatest client, yet he was patient with me, empathetic and fought hard for me. He responds quickly and never leaves a question unanswered. He will go the extra mile for his clients to ensure that they are making the best/right decisions for the present as well as the future. He definitely takes his job seriously. Helped me tremendously. Thanks Tim!

Great Lawyer
Had a workman's compensation case. Was not sure how to even pick a lawyer as I had never needed representation before. Actually decided on Attorney Brennan because of his discounts that he offers to Emergency Responders, and I am very glad I did. Attorney Brennan was extremely knowledgeable, down to earth, but very professional. Since it was the first time I had been involved in a legal proceeding, I had a lot of questions and he was always quick to return calls and emails with answers to walk me through the whole thing. You will I have already recommended Attorney Brennan to a friend and will continue to do so to anyone I know that needs an attorney.

Fantastic lawyer!!
I cannot say enough good things about the work Tim did for me. He was highly responsible and incredibly helpful in my traffic ticket. He knew the judge, knew exactly what to say to the police officer in my case and helped me get a reduced fine. Tim did a great job. Hire him!!
