“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.”
