I was referred to Michael when I had been really wronged by a former employer, and he was incredible in handling the case. He really fought for me and was my biggest advocate throughout the whole process. He always kept me updated with absolutely any changes in the case and responded immediately whenever I would reach out with questions. For the duration of the case I felt completely supported by him, and always felt like a top priority. He made the entire process as painless as it possibly could have been, I can't thank him enough.read more

I was hired by a Fortune 500 Company and, in less than one year, was promoted to management and charged with turning around an under performing location in their market. I was an exemplary employee and manager, and received numerous awards and letters of merit, accomplishment and praise. I had more than 25 years of experience upon hire. After five years of exemplary performance, I was terminated. I was crushed, furious and terrified. I had been a fantastic employee, and now I had no job; I am the primary earner in my family and now my family home, my son’s college plans, our credit, all of our lives were upside down. Following my termination, I found out that a much younger, less qualified, inexperienced replacement was placed directly into my management position. A family member who is a lawyer referred me to Atty. Michael Harriman at Harriman Law in Boston. He was a savior. He was kind, considerate and personable. Michael appraised the situation and made his recommendation, like me, he thought someone should be held accountable. For various reasons, Michael relayed that my claim would be an uphill battle. Still, Michael was willing to take a chance, he empathized with my situation and was angered by it. He felt as I did: “I had been screwed”, and so he took my case based “on principle”; he asked for no money up front, and went to work, and he worked tirelessly. He made no promise that he did not keep, he was timely, returned calls and always kept me informed. It was a long process, tedious for Michael, I am sure. The huge company we were up against tried their best to ignore him but, he persisted, until they could ignore him no longer and then he made my case as clear as day to them. They began to offer us settlements…Michael made me a part of every step in the process.This is why I can whole heartedly recommend Harriman Law and Michael Harriman to any and all those who have been walked on by a company large or small; Attorney Michael Harriman settled my case for more than five times what I had estimated my best settlement would ever be. I trust Michael for all my legal affairs. You should too.read more

In 2016 I was involved in a significant car accident that left me with a concusion, jobless and carless. Since I didn't know any lawyers for car injuries, I decided to Google some possibilities. I got a hold of a lawyer that caught my attention but he was unable to help me as he was pretty booked with clients. However he recommended Michael Harriman. I then called him and we met up to talk about my case. I have to say, Michael was prompt at getting back to me, meeting with me and working on my case right away. What I loved about Michael is that he really listened to my case, he paid attention and he was aware of my concerns. I love that he makes a point to come to you, so you don't have to deal with traffic and Boston Parking. He makes sure you are as comfortable as you can, specially knowing you are injured. He wants you to be well and take care of yourself so much that he 100 percent takes over and deals with the Car inusrance people, wihout having to ever bother you about it or you having to be botherr with the headaches of dealing with Insurance politics. Michael knows politics of Car Insurance and what it takes to fight them when you are injured. He knows what it takes and fights for you to get what you deserve. He checks in with you to let you know the progress of your case and gives you every detail needed. I never felt lost with him. He made sure I understood every piece of my case and lingo. I love his sincerity and polite ways. He tells your right away what he will accomplish for you and how long he wants to spend in doing all it takes to get your case going and get you pay for your injury and losses. He is the Best of Boston. He really cares for how you feel and your well being, not just what he can get you. Of course he fights hard with the insurance officials to get you all you are entitled. He is always a phone call away, and readily accessible when you need him. His staff is so polite and pleasant always. I know for a fact he will be my lawyer from here on, in anything or any consulation I may have. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family. In fact I have already told them if they ever need a lawyer for Car Injury, Sexual Harrasement, etc. I know an excellent lawyer. My experience with him was exceptional, beyond what I expected. He truly is a trust worthy lawyer and individual, working to get you the best deal that you deserve. Thank you Michael for all you have done for me, for being so prompt and always being there to address my concerns when I needed it the most.read more

I was in a motor vehicle accident Summer of 2016 and not being from New England, trying to find an attorney to represent me would be rather challenging. I reached out to a colleague / friend of mine and he recommend Michael Harriman. I sent an email to him and within a half an hour, there was a connection. Michael understood my relentless frustrations, I sent over the photos of my car accident and that same day – it was a new found relationship that I knew that I didn’t have to worry about. Michael is approachable and the entire process so easy that I knew everything would work out in the long run. His only requirement is transparency because he is advocating for his clients. I kept Michael abreast of every single appointment to every scan that way he just had to collect the data to document. My case was closed out before my 1 year anniversary of my accident and I wouldn’t have done it any other way. Michael Harriman is a true testament to the law and his clients. Great attorney and I would refer him to my family and friends.read more

An unforeseen event dramatically impacted my life.One day I was walking my dog at an open public park. I returned home with a significant accidental injury warranting a six month medically approved leave from my position as a registered nurse. My right lower leg was directly clipped by a friendly, frisky 11 month old lab. I recall being taken down hard. I describe it as, “one minute I was looking ahead acknowledging another walker and her daughter, the next I was looking at the sky and hitting the ground.” The owner of the dog came over to help me stating “you never saw her coming”. I incurred a non-displaced right tibia plateau fracture. My plan of care, per Massachusetts General Trauma ( MGH), was non-weight bearing (leg brace & crutches) for 8 weeks, 3-4 week MGH appointments with follow up diagnostic x-rays, and physical therapy. My goal was to follow this medical advice to avoid surgery. I literally went from being a very physically active person; bike riding, hiking, walking with friends, to sitting on the couch with limited mobility. Intellectually this was very challenging. I was cognitive of the fact that this was going to be a professional set back. I had recently completed a new grad nursing program with my employer and working on the floor with patients is the crucial link to professional development clinical experience. I own a dog, and thus, understand the responsibility of ownership that equates to liability. This was not a malicious attack and the owner was gracious. Nonetheless, this event had significant ramifications affecting both my personal life and professional growth over the course of six months.Boston personal injury lawyer, Michael Harriman, listened to my situation. His counsel, on my behalf, educated me on why and how an insurance claim is the justifiable avenue to compensate individuals in this type of circumstance. He clearly explained the legal course of action with patience and in terms that made sense, with an emphasis on including me in the decision making process. I felt empowered by his legal guidance. Ultimately, I was pleased with the insurance claim settlement and believe that it was fair compensation. I confidently recommend Attorney Michael Harriman. Unexpected life changing events happen. At those crossroads, it is important to have astute legal guidance from a personal injury attorney, such as Michael Harriman.Marybeth Oread more

Michael represented me in an employee law case. He handled very sensitive issues with care and compassion. He always explained what was happening step by step and complete honesty. He was professional and personable. Michael helped me through a stressful/difficult situation and supported me as not just a client as a person throughout. Even through multiple phone calls and e-mails from me, he brought a sense of calm and understanding to this particular situation. I would recommend Mr. Harriman to anyone looking for an attorney. From my experience, he knows the law very well, and he loves what he does. You can tell he works for you and for what is right. It is shown in his work that he doesn't do this for the paycheck, but for the love of his career and justice.read more

I hired Harriman to represent me in a legal case. He was professional, kind, courteous and completely knowledgeable. Anyone going into court can find it to be a bit nerve racking. Attorney Harriman answered every question I ever had with the most patience and understanding. When he spoke in the courtroom he had a huge knowledge of the law, and when he spoke the "Judge' listened. Attorney Harriman never wasted anyone's time. Whenever I would call his office regardless of the amount of times, he would always treat me with the most respect and courtesy. He never made myself or my family feel like just a number, and he never made us feel rushed. He had great empathy towards our situation and he fought for us in a very assertive and professional manner. If anyone is looking for an attorney who makes their client feel like they are a priority, and if anyone wants to work with an attorney who is extremely effective then Attorney Harriman would be the attorney for you. Attorney Harriman is one of the few attorney's you will find, that you can see he has a passion for the law and justice. He won our case, however regardless of what the outcome may have been, I was very lucky to have found an attorney who cares about who he works with, and how he performs his job.read more
