TESTIMONIALS

"I know I've said it before, but I want to say it again. I really appreciate all your help on this. The couple of years right before, and including this incident, were really hard for me. I don't know when I saw you last, but you will hardly recognize me. I am totally different now inside and out. ... I'm not as ashamed of being deaf and I'm managing the loss much better. It's still a sensitive topic, but it’s better. A big part of the change is all because of this hearing dog I have and this lawyer I know who helped me stand up for myself for the first time since being deafened. Your passion helped me stay the course when I wasn't sure I could handle all of this. The settlement money will make a huge difference, but the experience has really given me more than money ever could. So thank you again and a hundred times more."

"I would highly recommend Vincent M. Powers for legal representation. He is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He went out of his way to accommodate us at the time of our son's death. He was perceptive and could anticipate what steps to take in order to resolve our issues. He was sensitive to our emotional needs, as well. All emails or phone calls were answered promptly. His support staff was also very helpful and professional. Mr. Powers was clear in explaining the matters at hand. He has the experience and background to be very effective at what he does. He continues to [be] more than willing to help us navigate the system to find resolution to concerns that have arisen due to our son's death. I would hire Vincent M. Powers again."

- Client

"I have never met such a caring LAWYER. He's selfless and actually does care about your situation. He is responsive to every call and email. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. He is respected in the community and other lawyers need to take notes, attend his trials, so they can learn something. Employment cases depending on the nature can be hard to fight, but I am thankful that I finally had a voice to speak for me. Before consulting with him, the employer ignored my plea for help."

- Client

"It was a pleasure to work with Vince Powers. From the beginning, it was very obvious that he actually cared about my situation and wanted to do whatever he could to ensure that I received the justice that I deserved. I felt adequately prepared and informed throughout my entire case. All of my calls and emails were answered in a timely manner. He is highly intelligent and brought that knowledge to my case. I would highly recommend Vince Powers again and again."

- Client

"Having the opportunity to work with many professionals, it is always a pleasure to work with someone who stands head and shoulders above others in their field. Vince Powers is just such a professional. He brings a breadth of knowledge, certainly, but just as importantly, he brings a passion for justice that is uncommon. He was respectful to everyone involved in our case, showing a decency in tough moments that the world clearly needs more of -- he made us proud to be associated with him. Simply put, Vince is a class act who is bright, caring, and has the highest character and integrity."
