Testimonials

"ThanksHi Phil, Thanks very much for your EXCELLENT work in representing me in this nightmare. The Old Colony Memorial ran a 'Manomet man innocent of [criminal charges redacted]' story. I called them and asked that they do it. The reporter told me that Steve Nelson (former New England Patriot linebacker) was on the jury. How cool is that? Thank you again, and I would like to add my testimonial to the ones on your website. Jim"

"Thank YouPhilip Arnel is brilliant, hard working, diligent, tall and handsome. He did a really good job in my case by getting three times the amount that I thought I would get for my injury. He's very good at what he does and he's compassionate. Oh, and did I mention that he's tall and handsome?! I'm a client now and always will be."

3"I cannot find the words to thank you enough for what you have done for me. Your defense during my case was relentless, thorough and above all well planned. I cannot imagine having the same results with another attorney. My case was a very difficult one. You went up against a large corporation and fought hard for me. I do not know if you are aware of the full impact you have on people's lives. I spent many sleepless nights wondering the results and planning for the worse to happen and at the end, that last day in court, I walked away. I made it as far as my car before realizing that I was again a free woman. I then broke down and cried. Two years of heart aches and worry were finally over. The only single person I have to thank for that is you. What other attorney would have worked late to build a strong defense for court the next day? I would be surprised yet happy when my phone would ring as late as 9:00 p.m. to find it was you, still working on my defense. I was so fortunate to find an attorney who cared about the person involved as much as the win. Again, I cannot express how grateful I am. Warm Regards."

Thank You

"Thank you Phil for returning me to my profession and restoring my life! You are the one and only attorney with the tried and true experience in litigating fraudulent restraining orders that could have won this case for me! I knew, at our first consultation, that I was in expert hands. Your experience, intelligence, diligence, commitment, perseverance, professionalism and skill are second to none! You were always available, returning my calls and guiding me through those awful and anxious times. You kept me level and focused, bringing me through this to a very happy ending. You expertly constructed my case while taking apart the other party's fraudulent claims. You were able to do this thanks to your legal expertise, research and preparedness.

I am forever grateful for what you did for me and in the compassionate and professional manner in which you did it. When asked by friends and family for the name of a good attorney, I tell them that I know a great attorney, Philip Arnel! You are the finest attorney ever and I am forever grateful to you. Sincerely,"

You have truly been a God-send to our family."

I know this is not the usual case with attorneys. [Chiropractor] Martha McDonald remarked that you would be the kind of lawyer she would want representing her. So thanks again for your support during a difficult time for me. Best regards, Joan"

It's nice to know I have a great lawyer whose diligence and continuous perseverance to help me get through the rough times and not have to worry about anything. I could never thank you enough."

"Mr. Arnel: I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your efforts on behalf of my brother, John Sturtevant. I am totally convinced that his sentence would have been much lengthier without your support -- it must be gratifying to see that your talents can have such a major impact on another person's life! I am hoping during his incarceration he can start to get some of the help he needs and uses this time to examine the choices he has made. Hopefully, he can make choices in the future that will create a more positive path and draw him closer to his family. Thank you again for all your efforts and counsel to our family. Best regards."

"I met Phil when he was representing an opposing client that I was in litigation with. A few months prior, I had been in a serious auto accident and he took my case. Over the years Phil has represented me in a few cases, and he has always been a tireless, no nonsense professional who worked hard for his clients. Not only do I trust Phil as my attorney, but I also value him even more as my friend."

"Phil, I fell off a roof 30 feet and three lawyers told me I had no case. You said I did and we settled for $90,000 and had all my hospital bills paid. When I was in the hospital for those 10 days it was a nice feeling knowing I had the best lawyer working for me and keeping my spirits up. I don't know where I would be today if not for your professional and sincere work habits. I'm proud to say you're my lawyer and friend. Thanks again."

"Phil: Just a note to express my humble thanks for your tireless effort on my behalf. To think that I was told by a so-called top-tier lawyer that litigation in a dispute with my tenant would be far too expensive and that I would not stand a good chance to prevail against a multi-billion dollar corporate tenant like Sears. I did indeed take that lawyer's advice and just wrote it off as a loss. Fortunately, five years later, you became my friend and I thought to offer you this 'lost cause.' I am aware of your correspondence and many calls to the Sears corporate attorneys in Chicago and of how you pressed them to respond. That is the kind of effort and aggressiveness that I appreciate. It was no more than a few months when I received my payment in full from Sears for nearly $40,000.00. Thank you for that and it is comforting to know that if I should ever need assistance with any difficult matter in the future that I need only to call a friend whom I can trust. Once again, thank you and I wish you well in your practice. Regards."

"Dear Philip Arnel: Once again I thank you for the great job you did while working on my case. I have dealt with a few lawyers in recent years during my divorce and you top the list as a GREAT LAWYER! You did your home work and knew my case. Therefore, you were ready to go to bat on my behalf. You're THE BEST. I will recommend you to everyone I know in need of a good lawyer. Thank you."

I will definitely keep you in mind for all legal matters (for both myself and all of my friends) in the future. Best wishes,"

"Attorney Arnel, I wanted to say a big thank you for being such a ‘great support.’ You have been a ‘rock’ when I needed assistance. This situation has made things difficult, but your support, knowledge and care has made it easier!
Thank you for all you have done! Sincerely,"

"Phil: I wanted to thank you for all that you did to help me over the past several weeks. I have had limited experience with other attorneys, but you are by far the best one I have ever met. I would have said that regardless of today's outcome, too. In fact, I probably annoyed my wife with the amount of times I told her how great you are.

You literally saved my career. I can't even begin to explain how much what you did means to me, my family and my children's futures. I just hope you don't brush these comments off as another client who is caught up in the moment after a favorable ruling. Please take it to heart that you do some of the most important work imaginable. You change and save lives. Many attorneys are incompetent, many are lucky, many are good, and you are in a class of your own.

Thanks again for your patience, unbelievable attention to detail and compassion. I will never forget this. And if ANYONE needs an attorney for ANY reason, I will recommend you and you only. Sincerely,"

Thank you"Attorney Phil Arnel is absolutely a person I would use again whether it is a civil or criminal legal matter. Never have I seen such determination and willingness to work on any legal matter that came our way. His knowledge of the law is second to none. Attorney Arnel answers every question with sincerity and always returned any email or voicemail I sent him almost instantaneously. I always felt that I had not just a lawyer who cared in my corner, but a friend as well. Even when I had severe doubts about my case, Attorney Arnel always guided me with sincerity and respect. For that I will be entirely grateful that he was recommended to me."

Thank You"Dear Phil, I want to thank you for having so effectively represented me in my bodily injuries claim. I know it was not easy task dealing with this particular insurance company ... although I must confess I very much enjoyed hearing the stories of your dealings with their liability adjuster, as you were able to add humor into the most frustrating situations - you’re truly amazing. I’m very grateful for your remarkable hard work and dedication. I honestly believe that without you in my corner a fair settlement would have never been reached. I would never hesitate to have you represent me, or anyone I care about, if ever in need of legal representation in the future. Best"

Thank youHi Phil: I want to thank you for your letter enclosing the final settlement check and for your help in dealing with the various insurance companies involved in Nicole's case. Although I feel that I will never have closure in such a tragic situation, I was always confident that you would get me through this legal ordeal. This was not an easy situation for either of us, but you handled it in a professional and caring manner. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needed excellent legal representation. Best regards,

Thank you"I came into contact with Phil in 2005 when he represented me in my first car accident claim. He was very professional and officious with my entire case! I was very pleased with the end result, especially considering that I was left with visible scars from this accident. I contacted Phil again in 2008 with regard to yet another car accident that I was involved in because I trusted him enough to represent me. Once again, Phil did everything to help me and made me feel like I was in great hands. He is extremely professional and even called to remind me of all of my medical appointments. He always took my calls and and answered all of my questions! Of course my main question was, "How much am I getting?" ... lol. I was happy with the result of everything that he did for me. My family and I were involved in an unfortunate five-car accident in 2013 and Phil was the first person whom I thought of as I was placed in the ambulance. He then represented me in my third bodily injury claim because I would not have trusted anyone else. He worked very diligently for over a year on this case, which ultimately settled. I couldn't believe the amount of money that he got me. I was beyond happy, excited and grateful for the wonderful job that he did and could not stop thanking him. I will definitely call Phil if I ever need a lawyer in the future. Thank you, Phil, for everything that you did for me!"

a great big Thank youPhil, Thanks for representing me at the magistrates court last Monday. You put in the hard work and told me step by step what was going to happen. Your work was eye opening, as far as how you knew how to handle the court system. I cringe at the thought of having hired another lawyer, or worse not having any representation. Thanks again
