Recently I was in the need for the service of a good attorney to handle my case with a good track record. Another attorney highly recommended William Smith to handle my case, indicated that William Smith practiced in this area of law for my appeal with a good success record of winning of MA LTC appeal cases. My first counseling with William Smith, he was very professional, thoroughly explain the laws in this area and the base of his argument would be to win my appeal. He was very encouraging for a good outcome of my appeal. William explain the laws to me in layman terms that I could understand, he always answered or returned my phone calls and emails. Never once I had to wait. He always kept me inform the status of my appeal case, any hearing changes, always with encouraging news. I cannot be more please or delighted with the decision and the outcome of my case. Not only William won my appeal, I never had to go court for my appeal. If anyone in the need of a good attorney that specialist in Massachusetts Laws and the right to carry, I highly recommend William Smith to handle their case.
