"Saved All Our Butts"

"I wanted to thank you guys and your office for the work you did to get this result [dismissal] ... I did not expect this result, and did not even think it was worth the objection. Your office ... saw an argument that the rest of us, me included, didn't see or just dismissed. Your insistence saved all of our butts ... Even if they decide to appeal, I think this will stand up ... So bravo and thanks."

— Senior defense counsel representing a co-defendant

"Changed My Life For The Better"

"This is a testimonial I truly wanted to write. It is rare that one finds a professional with such compassion, concern and knowledge as Attorney David Governo. What he did for me was remarkable and changed my life for the better. When I faced a very troubling legal (environmental) issue, one pertaining to liability, I didn't know where to turn. Having no referral, I searched for a specialist in Boston, picked up the phone, and called his office.

Despite what I later found to be a very busy, highly respected practice, he made time for me on the telephone, listened calmly despite my anxiety state, responded with compassion, and asked me to come to his office, where he clearly explained my issue, and showed me what to do to resolve it. He even took the initiative to follow up after the fact to see how I was doing. Besides being very knowledgeable in his area of practice, Mr. Governo put the true meaning of 'counselor' in the title 'counselor-at-law.'"

— Client in an environmental case

"Professionalism, Understanding and Humor"

"I want you to know how delighted I am with the service rendered by two attorneys at your firm... They guided me through a difficult situation with professionalism, understanding and just the right amount of humor. [The attorneys] complemented each other's strengths and provided their own perspectives and opinions to the issues. Their tireless work allowed my company to reach the best conclusion to a difficult situation. While I am generally not a fan of attorneys, [they] are deserving of my sincere praise and appreciation."

— Client in an asbestos case

"Thank you for your excellent work on this matter. I think this is a big win, and I appreciate your efforts on our behalf."
