“Michael is a former associate of mine and has been a close professional colleague for years. He is one of the smartest, most creative and hard-working lawyers I have encountered. His advocacy skills—both in brief writing and oral argument—are superb. I recommend him highly.”

Alan M. Dershowitz - Professor Emeritus, Harvard Law School

“Syrie Fried represented me when I was charged with a sex offense.  She secured my release from jail and devoted herself to my defense.  What really mattered to me was how much she cared. She filed all kinds of motions in my case, and when we went to trial I was found not guilty by a jury. It felt like a miracle, but it was just that I had a lawyer who went the extra mile for me. Syrie Fried saved my life.”

“Phil Cormier did a terrific job for us in a complex federal criminal case involving serious felony offenses that could have wrecked our lives if we had been convicted of the charges in the indictment. He is intelligent, ethical, skillful and resourceful, and he fought the government every step of the way for us. Our case took more than two years to litigate. He was always available for consultations whenever we called him with our concerns, and he really cared about us. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance in a criminal matter.”
