“I'd recommend this office to anyone who is in need of accident lawyers. Anytime, any day.”

“I was involved in an accident and I was clueless on what to do. I googled accident lawyers of Massachusetts and The Law Office of Bailey and Burke came up. I called their office on a Sunday and the office was closed; however, Shawn Bailey was kind enough to drive and meet me at the office anyways. From there on, he handled my case and took care of everything for me. All I had to do myself was make it to my appointments and get better. The office handled all the legal matters for me! As for the settlement, it was way beyond what I expected!! The customer service was above and beyond my expectations and I’d recommend this office to anyone who is in need of accident lawyers. Anytime, any day.”

“I honestly couldn’t say more good things about The Law Offices of Bailey and Burke. I was in an accident years ago. It was the first time I had ever been in the situation, and my brother referred me to The Law Offices of Bailey and Burke. Shawn Bailey was my lawyer, and I honestly couldn’t ask for a better lawyer to work with for my case. During such a uncomfortable process, he made it manageable and was so caring throughout. There were times when I wanted to move on with my life, but he demanded that I make sure that my body was taken care of first and foremost, prior to taking the next step of the case. They genuinely care about you not just as a client, but as a person as well. I absolutely feel like I was taken care of for the whole process and have told them they can use me as a reference anytime. Thank you so much, for everything! “
