< go back to attorney list

"As an attorney, there is nothing more important to me than client satisfaction. I take great pride in the fact that many of my clients have been with me for years. They know that for me, the attorney-client relationship is a lasting bond, not a one-time transaction. I am honored by the trust place in me by clients and their loved ones, and I work hard to ensure that everything I do suits the exact needs of each individual, from the first moment of contact through the conclusion of the case."

Al is a highly skilled practitioner with over 35 years of experience representing Western Mass clients.
