Michael A. Contant, Esq.

32 Reviews

I was raised in a small suburban town just north of Boston. My parents were two of the hardest working people I have ever met. My dad was a carpenter and my mom an office manager at a local bank. We were by no means well off. In fact, during the recession in the late 1980’s my dad was laid off and could not find work for some time. He took on low paying jobs, sometimes two, just to make sure we had food on the table and a roof over our heads until the economy got better. I learned at a young age the value of hard work and perseverance. This is something I have taken with me each and every day.

When I became a lawyer in 1998, I never forgot my roots. I had no desire to help large corporations or work at a large firm where I would be no more valuable than the number of hours I billed. I wanted to work with everyday people who I could relate to. I saw how hard my parents worked through the hard times and the stress it placed on them. I began my practice so that I could help regular everyday people with everyday problems.

In my practice, which concentrates in Personal Injury (car accidents, slip & falls, dog bites, etc.), Criminal Defense and Bankruptcy, we see good people who are not always having the best days. Whether they have been injured in accident; charged with a crime; or financially strapped and unable to pay their bills, they usually enter our office pretty stressed out. My job, as I see it, is to take as much of that stress away as I can. I will not only fight hard for my clients, but also work hard to guide them through the process in an easy understandable way. Many of our clients have never had to work with a lawyer before and don’t know what to expect. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and treat you with the basic respect that everyone deserves. I simply want you to leave our office feeling better than when you arrived.
