Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
My mom was the victim of nursing home neglect/abuse. I retained Tom and he provided great representation in a professional, courteous fashion. He made a very uncomfortable ordeal bearable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of sound guidance and professional representation. Paul D.
