Great all-around lawyer. We consult him extensively for drafting and negotiating corporate agreements.
Warren Agin has helped us negotiate agreements with a variety of suppliers and clients. The suppliers ranged from angel-funded startups to Fortune 100 companies. The clients also covered the same size range and spanned about a dozen different industries. He has a strong command of the legal, personal, and strategic aspects of the process, which allows him to separate what's important from what isn't and keep us focused on what is. We also value his ability to communicate and teach. Our understanding of what issues need to by considered and why has grown by possibly tenfold since we first became his clients. We use that knowledge almost every day in determining how we approach business and structure relationships. We have worked with well over 10 lawyers in the past, and he is the lawyer we have used most extensively. We continue to use him and recommend him enthusiastically.

Unknown Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I first met Warren Agin while serving as an attorney for the U.S. Trustee's Office in Boston between 1992 to 1995. He was then and continues to be a top notch attorney before federal and state courts. All know his high standards and outstanding results. Mr. Agin receives my highest recommendation."
Internet Attorney | Jun 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"One of the few guys that actually *should* be a regular Privacy Ombudsman in the Bankruptcy Courts. As a privacy lawyer, it's always reassuring to see Warren's name because I then know the somewhat esoteric privacy concerns won't get lost in the "noise" of Bankruptcy Procedure."
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Dec 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer.I consider Warren one of the masters of bankruptcy law and procedure in the Boston area. Recently ,a fellow attorney needed an expert witness on a bitterly contested bankruptcy matter. Warren accepted the assignment and presented his findings both in a report and before the jury in a masterful manner that directly caused a favorable jury verdict."
