JOSEPH J. HIGGINS - LAW OFFICES OF JOSEPH J HIGGINS REVIEWS
Joe, I found it on the internet. Joe Higgins took time on his personal day off to meet me over 40 miles away. In the world today that is rare. Joe listened to me, gave me his thoughts, and more importantly did not sugar coat anything. He firmly told me the outcomes of the choices we were going to make. The one thing that stood out in court today was after a conversation happened between us he recognized immediately, (after me agreeing to it) that I was uncomfortable. This showed me he actually cares about how I was feeling, and the outcome of the trial. He always took my phone calls promptly. I was very fortunate to meet this talented individual. Thanks for giving me my life back Joe. Not Guilty. The best words I have ever heard.
Joe helped my family and me through a terribly embarrassing and difficult time when I got a DUI. His confidence and knowledge of the law made me feel more comfortable throughout the entire ordeal. He easily translated any courtroom verbiage I may not have understood and was prepared each time we entered the courtroom. Not to mention he was extremely responsive via cell phone when I had questions. I would highly recommend Joe to any friends, family, or others in need of an attorney. You will not find a better attorney.
I met Joe many years ago when he attended Boston College, well before he became an Attorney. He has always been that “All American standup guy” since the first time I met him. Unfortunately, I was in an accident February of 2019 and was charged with an OUI in addition to other offenses. After the pandemic hit, it took almost three years to get to trial. His professionalism and extreme attention to detail along with his vast knowledge of the law ended in a Not Guilty verdict. Watching him during the trial was truly impressive and I wouldn’t want any other person representing me during this difficult time. He really is a true professional but most importantly he genuinely cares. These traits are invaluable to have and really hard to find in this line of work. I highly recommend Joe if you ever need a dedicated professional Attorney.

JOSEPH B. SIMONS - SIMONS LAW OFFICE REVIEWS
I was charged with two felonies and contacted Attorney Simons for a consultation. He returned my call within 30 minutes and we scheduled a face-to-face meeting for the following morning. I had no prior interactions with the judicial system so I was completely a novice about how criminal legal matters were handled. Meeting with Attorney Simons that first time was the best decision I could have ever made. I walked him through the events of my situation and he listened intently. He was interested in hearing what I had to say. His patient and calm demeanor allowed me to provide him with the entire background of my case. I immediately knew that I had to hire Attorney Simons to represent me. Through the next 26 months, Joe Simons repeatedly demonstrated his skillful knowledge of the law, his unrelenting drive to support me, and his compassion as an individual who had a vested interest in my welfare. At each step in the process, he would provide me with information about what would happen during court appearances so that I was always well prepared. Attorney Simons is able to articulate the many different scenarios that were possible.
Joseph B. Simons is definitely 1 off the best lawyers I've incountered in my long history in the judicial system. He actually cares about his clients, communicates, and is very honest. Sometimes too honest Lol! He defended me in a armed home invasion case, and in time I got justice.. Charges got dismissed and joe made sure of it.. I can't say anything bad about Joseph or his firm and if I ever catch myself in another situation with the law I'm calling Joseph B. Simons law firm first!!
I reached out to Joe to assist a friend who was under investigation by a District Attorney's office in MA. I previously practiced law and had seen Joe in court many times - I knew he was the right person to call. Joe was extremely responsive and provided expert legal advice. Moreover, he was able to explain the legal issues involved in a way that was very easy to understand. Throughout the process, Joe routinely checked in to discuss the status of the investigation and to answer any questions - he was able to guide us through the process. Ultimately, charges were not filed. It could not have been a better experience. I highly recommend Joe to anyone under investigation or facing criminal charges.

STEVEN J. TOPAZIO - LAW OFFICES OF STEVEN J. TOPAZIO REVIEWS
Attorney Topazio has been thoroughly professional, diligent and skillful in navigating through the defense of the assault and battery charges (domestic violence) against me. He has been patient as the case hearings got postponed multiple times due to covid and and used all his experience in getting the case dismissed. I would recommend him for anyone looking for a true professional with knowledge, experience and skill to get you out of tricky situations.
As 24 year old nurse I'd never thought in a million years that I would need a lawyer. Being involved in a criminal case is so extremely stressful. I feel so lucky to have had Steven as my lawyer. Not only was he professional and has so much expertise in this field, he is a very kind and compassionate individual. I never hesitated to call him if I had any question or was stressed about the case. He always made sure I understood everything that was going on and explained to me the process thoroughly. I am so grateful that I had Steven representing me.
I hired Steven Topazio for a number of criminal charges related to a traffic violations ticket - he was kind, reassuring, personable and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly he negotiated the most favorable possible outcome for my case - a better result than I had even hoped for going in. He minimized my time in court and any ramifications of my charges and came to a very quick and optimal settlement with the DA. He is very soft-touch in his communications but he knows the minutest of rules and courtroom dynamics to be able to negotiate effectively on his client's behalf. I was extremely impressed and felt at ease and taken care of in his hands. His combination of genuine empathy, common sense, shrewdness in negotiations and courtroom experience and savvy makes him uniquely powerful and reassuring to work with. I'm truly grateful to him for the grace and effectiveness with which he handled my case and I would recommend him most highly to anyone in need of an attorney for the types of charges he handles.
