I contacted Attorney Studley’s office just over 2 years after my car accident (I was not at fault) because I started getting phone calls and letters from the other drivers insurance company. I spoke to Christine on the phone and she was both reassuring and confident that we could reach a reasonable settlement for my case and set up a meeting with Attorney Studley very quickly. Attorney Studley is both knowledgeable and relatable. This was my first time contacting a lawyer for this type of matter and I was nervous and expected to feel intimidate, but that was not the case at all! I felt comfortable and at ease working with him and I trust his expertise and years of experience to get me the best settlement possible without going to trial. All of my questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner and I received frequent updates via email as agreed upon. I would absolutely contact Attorney Studley immediately if I were in another accident or needed legal assistance.

John was great to work with explaining the system for a long term divorce (over 30 years) and the possible outcomes of a trial. John was able to negotiate a settlement prior to the pretrial that was agreeable to both parties. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him for other services.

I had a complicated and unique case that many lawyers turned me down before I found John. I worked with John for over 2 years in a custody and paternity case. John was always professional, helpful, responsive, and did an excellent job in explaining the many different routes I could undertake in order to get the ruling I wanted. John is very perceptive and with his lengthy experience he was able to decide which strategy we should undertake given many different factors including changing judges in my trial and many other inherent details to my case. John’s expertise and wisdom helped us navigate the trial and end up with a ruling that I ideally wanted and hoped for in the end. Not only was he excellent in his service, but also the staff at his practice as well. I would highly recommend John to anyone seeking legal guidance or representation. I would definitely work with John again.

I am a criminal defense attorney with an active practice and I know a competent attorney when I see one. I cannot overestimate john’s expertise and abilities. John represented me in a particularly contentious and high stakes probate modification and hit a home run. He is cool,calm and most professional in his handling of probate court matters. I easily give him 5 stars and highly recommend him to anyone seeking a skilled, respected attorney. Kevin Reddington. Brockton ma.

When I first started my journey searching for an Attorney, I knew I needed the BEST, EXPERIENCED, and an EXPERT for my situation, no question about it. After reading many attorney reviews ....I came across THE MOST DISTINGUISHED biography.....the name: Attorney John E Studley Jr. I knew at that moment I had found my EXPERT. I scheduled a consultation immediately. I quickly saw how John’s seasoned experience has earned his remarkable reputation and why John is highly respected by his peers. Painting his Masterpiece... Conducting his Orchestra... Performing respectfully with expertise, eloquence, grace, and integrity. Confirmed to me in my opinion, right then and there, at that point in time I learnt very quickly that.... “I was very well represented.” John earned my faith, trust, and respect immediately. Maintaining the best interest for the children was always a priority in every segment. John delivered. Sandy and the Team are a finely polished extension of John. They are always available, in unison, honest, respectful, and 150% prepared. The Studley Law Offices always exceeded my expectations throughout the process. John and his Team are truly an exceptional class act, and cut above the rest. I will certainly recommend Attorney Studley to all of my family and friends in need of representation.

I completely agree with a prior reviewer...a complete class act! He is highly efficient, extremely knowledgeable, personable, totally professional, highly successful and very entertaining. I have dealt with Atty. Studley on a few matters over the course of 12 years and he (and his staff!) have consistently provided the time and means to successfully litigate my cases/issues. I was fortunate enough that he was referred to me and I have had absolutely no regrets. If you're looking for the best, he's the person to hire.

Attorney Studley and his staff are exceptional! They all are very professional, courteous, efficient and empathetic for our case. Attorney Studley knew the "ins and outs" of the laws and was able to implement them in our case. He was always available to us in a timely manner. He explained various situations and avenues we needed to explore. He provided us with the information we needed to move forward in our case. Attorney Studley was always prepared for any situation in court. He even had copies of documents that the judge did not have available to him during court proceedings. We have already recommended him to a fellow grandparent and would do so again.
