Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships)

Pierce Atwood is an excellent law firm with very good lawyers who are also very nice people to work with. They are knowledgeable, responsive and practical. We have inherent trust in the lawyers we use at the firm and can recommend them without hesitation. In addition to the above, their rates are reasonable and I almost always feel I am getting value for the fees I pay for their services.

Dan Bailey at Pierce Atwood is our "go-to" person.

Trademark Law

Jon Gelchinsky and his team at Pierce Atwood (Mike Hernandez and Gene Longobardi) are fantastic! I have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Jon and his firm for over 5 years. They continuously provide timely, pragmatic and business-friendly advice in an efficient and hyper-timely basis. Out of all of the law firm partners we have, Jon's firm is always a top-performer, year-in, year-out. Pierce Atwood always comes in at or under budget and has been very understanding during the times in which our business is experiencing turbulence. Other partners have not been as gracious, and we appreciate Pierce Atwood so much more as a result. We are grateful to have such a wonderful and knowledgeable partner in our corner. Thank you Jon and team!

Immigration Law

I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Tony Derosby, US Immigration Counsel, Pierce Atwood, in my capacity as Corporate/Immigration Paralegal with the J.D. Irving, Limited Law Department. Tony and his team have worked with in-house legal counsel and Corporate/Immigration Paralegals within the JDI Law Department to provide precise and cost-effective US immigration advice in a timely manner over the past 25+ years; including the provision of advice to many companies within the Irving Group on a multitude of employment based applications. He has always communicated his advice in a manner that is understandable to all parties involved and has streamlined the complicated US immigration process within the Irving Group to what it is today. It is a pleasure working with Tony and his team every day of these important issues.

Devon Cutchins Markley Group LLC

Real Estate Law

Pierce Atwood's Boston-based land use litigation, land use permitting, and environmental practice is best in class and I refer to them whenever feasible, whether matters that my firm is conflicted from handling, matters that we lack the expertise to handle, or matters that require less expensive (but still excellent) counsel. These are highly experienced, commercial and practical lawyers that can handle the most sophisticated matters (and clients). I refer to them without any fear that the referred client will be disappointed.

Land Use & Zoning Law

I have referred numerous land use and zoning matters all involving litigation to Pierce Atwood, specifically to Don Pinto, and all of my clients have had great success and nothing but praise for Don and the outcomes.

Land Use & Zoning Law

I am a regular user of many of Pierce Atwood's team in many different legal areas. Every attorney has been terrific. Highly recommend for practical, informed, legal advice in many areas.

Tax Law

The tax case which Pierce Atwood was given involved taxing a nonprofit. The firm certainly knew well the State law and the evolution of the law. The case was intensively prepared and presented. The trial court disagreed with the interpretation of the outstanding law which the judge said controlled the case. An appeal to the State Supreme, was filed and once again extensive legal analysis was brought to bear, and on appeal the State Supreme Court reversed each of the points relied upon on by the trial judge. All during this time of trial court preparation and the appeals process the attorneys were courteous and professional answering questions of clients. At the Supreme Court session it was clear to a number of observers that the presentation of the Pierce Atwood attorney was extremely well prepared, especially when the justices asked questions.

Trusts & Estates Law

Cindy Worthen, with Pierce Atwood, is terrific!

Thomas Bishop The Bishop Company, LLC

Environmental Law

Pierce Atwood's ability to hand-off and transition between lawyers is impressive and promotes agility. Their mix of local expertise and ability to know the law and understand policy changes have been hugely insightful.
