Excellent service. Mr. Boston continued to fight for me regarding Social Security benefits as it pertains to bankruptcy. I would highly recommend him for any legal service.

Very responsive and Professional
Mr. Boston handled my divorce case with such ease that I did not have to worry about anything. He was very responsive and handled the issues that came up quickly. I would recommend him to anyone that is needing a lawyer. Mr. Boston was able to meet with me at odd hours so that there was little impact on my work. The ease that he puts you at in discussing your case is remarkable. I had been to another lawyer who was always watching the clock and did not seem to remember what had been discussed earlier. This was not the case with Mr. Boston. I left each meeting knowing exactly where we were in the processings. If I had questions and had to leave a message, my call was returned promptly. For me there is no better lawyer.
