“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
“I am not knowledgeable of the legal system, so I had a lot of questions. Tucker and Peter were very accessible and helpful. They went above and beyond their duties to make sure that I knew the legal procedure. I would recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance.”Kyle / Boston, MA View More
