    I've worked closely with Paul Aker and I have also referred cases to him when my own law firm had a conflict. Paul is hard-working, competent, and personable. He's one of the most conscientious lawyers I've ever known. People who hire Paul to solve a legal problem will be glad they did.

    I have engaged Paul's services on a number of matters when I have had scheduling conflicts or been swamped with work and have found him in each instance to be very thorough and resourceful. On one particular occasion he handled a Probate Court hearing for me when I was on vacation, and my client informed me she was very pleased with his representation. Paul has also helped me prepare contractual documents and done a very nice job with the drafting process.
