Perry & Perry
I was a client of Carols' for 15 months and was under no illusion that I was her only client. But it became clear Carol's workload a negatively effected her work for me. There were several instances where I would provide her with information she requested to only have her ask for it again 2 or 3 days later. I feel Carol is more effective in her role as a divorce attorney when she is responsible to obtain assets for her client vs ensuring to retain maximum assets (in this case, mine).Finally, during this time Carol frequently told me her 32 years of experience would benefit me, meaning her hourly rate of $300 was worth it. My opinion is her 32 years of experience has made her complacent. Knowing the divorce laws and knowing how judges rulings will end, made her not willing to "think outside the box" for my benefit. She followed the usual procedures because she had a good idea of how judges would rule. With little effort shown to try all reasonable approaches for my benefit.

Perry & Perry
This is a cautionary review of my 15 months as a client of Carol Perry. It became clear her workload during this period of time was too much for her to adequately perform her duties for me in a timely and accurate fashion. There were numerous instances where I would provide her with information and 2 or 3 days later she would ask for it again. Even after I brought these concerns to her attention, it continued until the end. Also, I feel Carol is more effective in obtaining assets from the other party vs retaining the assets of her clients (me). I was genuinely surprised she didn't have the foresight to recommend issues I had to tell her to do. Finally, I feel Carol's 32 years of experience has resulted in a sense of complacency to adequately protect my interests. This resulted in her not trying every reasonable option to protect my interests. Without my input, I would have been at a greater disadvantage at the very end of this divorce. For $300 hour, I expected more diligence.

John C. Stevens, III - Mediation & Arbitration
Judge Stevens was one of the most honest and fair judges in Salem or MA. Ask any attorney who has stood in front of him and they will tell you the same thing. As you can imagine from the comments below he is not very popular with deadbeats who don't pay child support.

John C. Stevens, III - Mediation & Arbitration
Similar experience to Hockeychef. Judge Stephens was on the take and is a disgrace to the family court system

Law Offices of Mark Barry
Absolute BEST REPRESENTATION I could ask for. Mark met with me the day before arraignment. He could not make my scheduled arraignment so he had it postponed for later that week when he was available. That day mark got my FELONY CHARGE AND MISDEMEANOR CHARGE DISMISSED PRIOR TO ARRAIGNMENT and referred back to a clerk magistrate for hearing where charges were later dismissed. I was arrested 3 weeks after an indecent FOR A CRIME I DID NOT COMMIT. Mark brought to light the false claims in the police report by the "victim". He absolutely SAVED my adult criminal record, which thanks to him, is still spotless. I have only know mark for about 2 and a half months and met with him about 6 times but this is what I know about him:Very good listener, promptly returns phone calls and is an absolute STRAIGHT SHOOTERVery well spoken, but not in your face confrontation which is VERY important when pleading to a judge or magistrate. Has a VERY GOOD working relationship with EVERYONE in the Salem Court house and knows every prosecutor, DA, assistant DA, judge, clerk, clerk magistrate, police prosecutor, EVERYONE by first name basis and they all actually listen to what he has to say. He absolutely knows the law back and front. Compared to other defense lawyers Mark is very reasonably priced. (I checked)Don't make the mistake of walking into court trying to explain your side of the case by yourself because the fact of the matter is you're just another face and everyone who comes in there thinks they are right or innocent. Mark works with these people everyday and they will actually listen to your side of the story through him.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
