A cornerstone of our practice is providing personal, individualized attention. At Bishop & Reidy, P.C., you will never be treated like a case file number. If this is the kind of representation you feel your personal injury or family law matter deserves, contact our office by calling 617-786-7575 today and schedule a consultation with attorney Bishop. At too many law firms, you will meet with your lawyer at first but get quickly passed to an associate or paralegal who will actually handle your case. At Bishop & Reidy, P.C., we believe that maintaining a direct attorney-client relationship is essential to executing effective legal strategies and finding solutions that meet your unique needs and the specific circumstances of your case. We believe in keeping our clients updated about any new developments in their cases. We strongly believe that after presenting you with all the options, the ultimate decision about how to pursue your claim is yours. Many people come to our Massachusetts family law firm after being referred by existing clients who have come to appreciate our honesty and compassionate concern during their own personal issues, whether it was a child custody issue, or a division of assets conflict. We also represent many people referred to us by other attorneys in Massachusetts, throughout the United States, and internationally.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

I recently concluded a divorce case involving a mid- term length marriage of a couple in a high income bracket who also owned substantial assets. My client was the care provider of three young children and the other party was the income producer. I was able to obtain a just and fair settlement for my client while at the same time respecting the dignity of both sides throughout the process. My client later posted the following recommendation:""From the moment I met Paul Bishop, I knew I was in the right place. I knew I had found the right attorney for me. Overnight, I had become the single mom of three young children and he never lost sight of the enormity of my responsibilities. He listened to my needs as a single mom and always negotiated with those needs in mind. Paul Bishop was successful in obtaining a divorce agreement that was exactly what I needed (and what I was owed) for my family and me. I am forever grateful for his guidance throughout thisprocess and his unwavering professionalism."" For obvious reasons, I was very proud ofmy work in that case. In another case, I was able to gain a substantial settlement for a client as a result of a slip and fall accident. The case presented significant challenges with regard to establishing liability; however, my client was a young woman who had sustained devastating injuries and she needed help. I was eventually able to obtain a significant financial recovery on her behalf. She later wrote: ""Paul was very thorough and responsive to my calls and e-mails, and took the time to explain every aspect of the case to me as I went through this difficult time. He was genuinely concerned about my condition and the care I received in the many surgeries and therapies I required after my accident, even after the case was settled. Paul did absolutely everything he could to help me receive a fair and just settlement. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Paul Bishop and his firm."" In that case, I was very pleased that my client was received a large award for the injuries she sustained.

How did you build a successful practice?

Certainly, hard work is an essential ingredient to the building a successful law practice. I try to live by this formula every day. There are no shortcuts to hard work, but the results are always worth the effort.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Fit, integrity and experience.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Local knowledge helps, but does not determine who wins. The lawyer/client team that is the best prepared almost always wins. Of course, winning has to be defined as follows: The lawyer knowing the law and understanding what to expect, the client accepting the range of possibilities as explained to him/her by the lawyer and then settling or obtaining an award from the court that is favorable based upon the range of possibilities.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

In the initial phone conversation I can obtain two critical pieces of information. First, I am able to solicit the basic factual information concerning the case to determine whether I might be able to help the potential client. Second, I can assess whether the potential client and I are a "fit". If the answer is yes to both of the questions and if the client is interested, we then schedule a free in office consultation.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

The client should be prepared to talk about the case and should have most of the relevant information readily available before the consult begins. If a client is unprepared or does not have the critical information needed before the call starts, I quickly lose interest.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Helping others in need and getting paid as part of the process.
