“Peter Merrigan was very nice from the time I called. I don’t know what I would have done with my son’s hospital bills from the bus accident, but he has been nothing but helpful and understanding. I will definitely recommend him to my family or friends that need a lawyer.”Susan / Marlboro, MA View More
