At Kantrovitz and associates I needed both an experienced Workers Comp and Social Security Attorney who would help guide me through the necessary paper work, court proceedings and advise me on my legal rights, Attorney Steven H. Kantrovitz handled my Workers Compensation Case and Attorney J. Eric Chisholm took care of my Social Security Proceedings, With their experience and professionalism my case was a success and I would contact them for a free consultation, Let them take the worrying away and win your case. You will not be disappointed.
I would like to say Thank You! to Steven Kantrovitz and his entire staff. From the first time I met Steven I could tell he was a straight shooter, and the guy I wanted on my side. I already had an attorney working for me, but she had me completely in the dark. Being an injured worker, it's normal to have questions and concerns, it's a very stressful situation. Every time I had a question or concern, she would actually get mad and tell me to stop thinking about the future "I had to" I needed to know which direction to go. I was very confused. I heard Steven Kantrovitz talking on the radio one day about workers comp, and he mentioned many things I had questions about, I immediately called his office and spoke to him personally. We set a date to meet and discuss my situation. when we did meet, I knew right there, “this is the guy I wanted handling my case” Steven answered all my questions with complete confidence and understandable answers, and even gave me more information and advice that I wasn’t aware of. A few weeks later we met a second time at his office, this time I brought my wife to meet him, she also had some questions to ask. Again, Steve answered all our questions and assured us we were doing the right thing, and not to worry about anything. When we left his office, we knew we had done the right thing. From that day on, it felt like a load off just knowing Steve was there for us, and I could just focus on my surgery, and the healing afterwards. Every time I had a question or concern, (and I did have many) Steve would answer and assure me that he was there, and he hit the nail on the head on everything from there on. Even after my surgery I would think, what about this, or what if this, or if something came in the mail from Insurance Co. my wife would just say, don’t worry Steve knows” and that was the truth. Steve was there for me at a very difficult time, for that I will be forever greatful” To anyone in a difficult workers comp situation, make it easier on yourself, call Steven Kantrovitz, you will not regret it. Thank You Steven, Paulina and everyone at Kantrovitz and associates!!

Eric came highly recommended by my fellow employees, and he did not disappoint.
He negotiated my settlement with impressive skill, and always returned phone calls promptly. I was treated with compassion, and felt that he truly cared. He lived up to his professional reputation in every situation, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who has been injured at work.
My experience with Eric has been exceptional. My fellow employees recommended Eric to me after a workplace injury. His professionalism, knowledge and compassion were demonstrated in every interaction. His responsiveness is remarkable. He has always been available to me for even the smallest of questions. On a more personal level, I feel Eric is a genuinely nice man. I feel fortunate to have Eric represent me and I would highly recommend him.
Mr Chisholm represented me after an injury during a fight with an inmate. His conduct and handling of my case were exemplary in every manner. All calls returned promptly, thorough explanations of proceedings and kept me informed throughout my recovery. I will absoloutely refer any injured worker to Mr Chisholm.
Eric always, I mean always returned my calls. He has the right attitude & passion for getting things done quickly. I felt as though he put my interests first and above all put himself in my shoes. He is certainly a performer and does what he says he is going to do, when he says he is going to do it.
Eric is one of the best lawyers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. His knowledge and insight were invaluable to my case. Eric’s professionalism and responsiveness were exceptional. If you ever need a lawyer and want one who is 100% on your side, Eric is the one to call. ALL calls were returned expeditiously and he kept me informed of every aspect of my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Eric cares – bottom line! He explained things to me so I understood them. He talked to me, not at me like most other lawyers I’ve worked with. Eric’s a regular guy all the time - until he gets into court. He flips the switch and was the best lawyer in the room. You can tell he is well respected and for good reason. I was lucky to have him represent me!
To Whom It May Concern;
After being injured at work, I found myself without the knowledge of Workman’s compensation laws, without experience to fight for my rights, and without the ability to gain this knowledge in which to do so!
After struggling with the Insurance Company, and the Company I worked with, I sought legal help for my case.
Like most people I was struggling with finances, how can I pay for my mortgage, car payments, and other bills and afford a Lawyer on 60% of my income. I searched the Internet, and talked to friends, Nothing made it any better, so I went it alone until an acquaintance I knew that worked for an Insurance company in Workmen’s Compensation, stated she would find me the best Lawyer in Massachusetts, because of her experiences working with the Insurance Company, and seeing how the cases are handled.
My friend came back with Steve Kantrovitz and Associates, I called him and he immediately made me an appointment, stated he could meet me or pick me up as I lived on Cape Cod, and he was located in Boston.
He met with me, explained the laws, reassured me as to the fact I was making the right choice. Told me that as a team we could overcome all my fears, (like now, what do I do for work? How do I get re-educated? How can I survive if they cut my income?) Then the part which I knew would end our conversation, the retainer and how much it would cost me! However, much to my surprise, it cost me nothing! (This is exactly what I had to spend at that particular moment!) Then stating he worked on a percentage of a Lump Sum, settlement.
Do yourself a huge favor, do it now! Do it with the confidence to know, Steve has your back, your best interest, and will not settle for anything else.
I know because I now have gone through the whole process, Steve never made any promises, never made any suggestion as how to do anything. He simply stated, “I’m on your side and you will now make it through this chapter in your life.”
I have funding to retrain; I have income to cover me while I’m in school. With the right amount of capitol to pay my bills, keep everything I have, and the confidence to know, when I start work again I have money left over, in case I re-injured myself again.

I just wanted to thank Steve for all he did for me. He stayed in touch, he was VERY prepared, he explained every step to me clearly, and he made me feel comfortable. He is a really down to earth guy, who CARES about the people he represents. I can’t say recommend him enough. Please feel free to use this as a testimonial.
Hi Steven!!! Just want to let you know that my 50,000 that I had after I paid everyone off I invested in a little bungalow in Brockton that a friend of Daves. gave us 40.000 more (which I pay back 400.00 per month) the house cost 87,000 when all was done and we had 3000.00 left to fix it. Its really cute and when I figure out how to email pics I will if not I will just send you some. You will be so proud. We even got some good monies back from taxes and are putting up a fence and doing some landscaping. Still need roof, windows but someday that will come. Even got the gas comp to help with insulation, lots of work but we did it. thanks to you a good success story.
Steve, I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work and effort on my behalf. You really made a stressful situation bearable and I never felt like you weren’t right on top of things, which I very much appreciate. You are a good man my friend and for that I thank you.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work in helping me with my case.You are a very knowledgeable, caring down to earth lawyer excelling in your field of practice. You made me feel comfortable with the process, always answered my calls and emails promptly. I never felt disconnected throughout the whole process, you always kept me updated and never left me with any unanswered questions. Your demeanor and attitude was definitely not what I expected it would be and I’m eternally grateful you are on my side. I hope that I never get hurt on the job again and need your services but if I do, I know I’ll have the best in my corner.
My husband and I came to Steve at Kantrovitz and Associates after a head injury he sustained at work. We had many questions about the process and fears. After speaking with Steve, he put our minds at ease. We essentially turned over this whole problem to him. Through the whole process, which was quite lengthy, he dealt with the insurance company, the courts, the opposing attorneys, with the utmost professionalism and efficiency.
Everyone involved on the opposing side made us feel as if we had done something wrong. Steve made absolutely sure we understood this was not the case. We were told what to expect and how to handle each situation as it arose. He was with us through it all.
When it became apparent that this was going to be a permanent disability, Steve had us talk to Eric Chisholm who handles the disability for the office. He took us step by step through this process, helping us with paperwork, filing it, and following up on it. Again, everything was handled effectively and with a minimum of fuss.
Just this past week, many months after the case was settled, there was an issue with the insurance company. I called Steve and immediately he dealt with the problem, calling the insurance company, talking to the adjuster. It was a great feeling to know at any time I can call and get the same service I got when the case was new and had not been settled.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that I write this testimonial. To this day, knowing everyone in this office is there to help gives me peace of mind that I did not expect to receive. We deal every day with the physical aspect from this workplace injury, but knowing that the legal aspect is never an issue is a miracle for us.
In appreciation of your recent efforts and victory over the dark oppositional forces of the insurance company on my behalf, I would like to present you with this wine.
Seldom in my life has anyone, acting as my champion, exhibited such tenacity and professionalism?
Not being a wine connoisseur, I was not aware that wine could be that expensive!! In that vein, I felt compelled to present it in a hand-made box, allowing you to appreciate the fruits of my labor.
So, when you are ready to consume this liquid gold, proceed as follows:
1. Gather constituents or partner, 2. Play some music that you enjoy, 3. Remove leather thong, 4. Slide collar down, 5. Remove wedge from bottle top, and 6. Remove wine from box and consume.
In reiteration, thank you so much for all you have accomplished on my behalf! If I could send you on a cruise or buy you a Porsche, I surely would.
In deep appreciation,
Your client, George T. Magee
You’re the best!
“Thank You” just doesn’t seem to adequately express my gratitude for all that you have done!! Just as your childhood friend ‘Tommy” promised ~ all the stress and aggravation of going through Workman’s Compensation completely dissolved once you were on board. You truly are worth your weight in gold.
Hi Steve, Today has been a good day! My disability was granted, thanks in no small part to Eric. I also was able to schedule the surgery for my wrist today. I am so glad I asked you to take my case. You and Eric have been incredible in terms of handling my case, providing support, and reassurance, keeping me informed and answering any concerns I have. I couldn’t have asked for more.
Happy New Year,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you & your staff for the professional & human treatment I received after my workman’s comp. claim for an injury to my neck.
Steve, you were always there whenever I had a question or was uncertain about my future. Your upbeat manner & professional advice helped me navigate the best decisions for my welfare & my job. I can honestly say if it weren’t for your willingness to be there for me I may have acted improperly & not in my best interest.
I have a very strong work ethic & you were very supportive of how I felt. I know you worked miracles behind the scenes & I am now returning to a job I love. For this I can never truly let you know how grateful I am.
I believe there are no coincidences in life, only the tract to stay on your life’s purpose. For me you were instrumental in my health & well being.
Humbly & with great respect I will continue the job I love & will always hold a special place in my heart for you. Should the need ever arise I would be there for you.
Thank you again,
Thank you so much! Amazing as you are, this in itself has given me more faith in you than I knew could exist. You, Steve, and I mean this sincerely, are over the top! When no one else could break a barrier through a relentless UR system, you compassionately made your way to help me in a matter which needed prompt attention. You are always so reassuring and knowledgeable. I felt so much better just knowing you were involved, but never expected a 24 hour turnaround time (in my favor no less)! I just say again and again, I am so fortunate to have you…you are the best!
I hope you have a nice holiday weekend….
Many, many thanks again,
Thank you again for everything you and your staff have done in this case. I will forever grateful to you, and if there is anything I can do for you, you only need to ask. I will call the retirement board today to get the figures I need. I hope to stay in touch if not professionally but as friends. I will also recommend you to anyone I know that either needs a top notch workers comp lawyer or a lawyer in general. I know during this whole process I was at times a bit demanding and needy, but I assure you I am not always like that. Any way I wish you the best in this coming year and please keep in touch.
Thank you again,
Best Regards, Daniel K
I want to say that if I had to go war, I would want you in the fox hole with me fighting the battle. I have the utmost confidence and respect for you and the abilities you have demonstrated. As far as my case has developed I am very satisfied that you are bringing me to the promised land of justice!!! Thank you for being my attorney and my friend.
Dave W. It’s about 9:15PM, not expecting a call back from you on this, I just wanted to let you know whatever the outcome of that was today I was really impressed with what went on today. I think you were very well prepared. I think you did a fantastic job and I appreciate you actually believing in me and realizing that there is a medical need that maybe compensation can’t take care of. I really appreciate it again and I thank you very much and I just hope things work out and whatever the case may be you did a great job today and I just wanted to stay thank you.
Steven, Johnny G. calling. Listen, you know, I was sitting here listening to my messages today and I got one from Mr. Singleton over at the Social Security office and everything’s all set – I should get my money in about three weeks. You know, I can’t say thank you enough to you and I never say it to anybody, you know that, but you know just when we figure the impossible’s here and we go and pull it off.… ’ve dealt with a lot of lawyers and if only they knew half…so just wanted to say thanks again.
“I just wanted to thank you for all your help in settling my claim. I’m happy to say it was done very quickly thanks to you. I’m sure the outcome wouldn’t have been the same if I went about it myself. I appreciate all you have done. Thank you again.”
“I just wanted to thank you for handling my auto case quickly and efficiently. Being from out of state, I was afraid my case would be a real hassle. All my medical bills were paid and you kept me informed and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend Kantrovitz & Associates in the future. Thank you again.”
“Brian has been nothing less than fantastic. I’ve always felt without his hard work, and everyone at Kantrovitz [and associates] I’d be lost. I’ve never had anyone be as helpful. I’ve been treated with the utmost respect and courtesy and am sincerely grateful. Signed: Your most grateful + happy client. Sincerely,”
“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your law office handling of my comp claim.
As you know, little over 2 years ago on September 20 of 2001 I was injured at work. After 3 months of being taken advantage of, being denied services I needed and being lied to by the insurance company, I called your office…from my hospital bed from the Spaulding Rehab Hospital. At first, you knew I was upset, confused, depressed, intimidated, and scared of the situation I was in. The first words out of your mouth were “Trust me John, don’t worry about a thing.” [You said], that you would call them and put them in their place, as indeed you did.
The very next day you sent Attorney Brian Curley to visit me at my hospital bed…He took the time to explain things in great detail, so I could understand. [Not at any time did he talk down to me] I signed on with you that day knowing you were for real.
After being out injured for 5 months and you talking to my Doctor, you advised me to apply for S.S.D.I. [Social Security Disability Insurance]. I asked you how to go about this and was told your office could handle everything if I wanted you to and again, without thinking twice, I agreed.
During the month of March of 2002 a couple things had happened:  they found a non-union in my ankle, and,  my weekly checks stopped. [I] called you in a panic. You asked me [if I could] work light duty and I said yes. You informed me, since I needed another operation, they would be forced to put me on [disability] again and I would receive the difference in pay. Once I went for my operation my compensation checks started and I got all of my back pay in full, with your help of course.
After I had surgery on August of 2002, I again had another infection and called your office. When I called, I had asked for you and again [you] took my call like you had always done, put my mind at ease and answered all of my concerns.
At one point during this I had a problem with [a] visiting nurse, who I did not want [as she wasn’t] meeting my medical need’s…[I] was told that they are the people who handle claims for that insurance company and I could nothing about it. I called your office; again you got on the phone, heard my concerns and took care of it right away.
May of 2003 your office called me to inform me of [a] settlement offer. You advised me not to take the money and run, …due to the fact is was not in my best interest. In late July we reached a settlement, you walked me throughout the process, explained everything so I could understand and made sure I got every penny I was entitled to. In fact, you got me more money then I thought I would get.
The most important issue [is that] I settled my case but, I still have medical problems with the ankle and you are still on my side, making sure I am still getting the medical attention I need, as well as any medicine I need by making sure the insurance company does the right thing…[in a] timely way.
In closing, I would like to say anyone who can put up with my poor attitude, impulse control and demeanor should get a lot of credit. Anna, Brian and [Steven] have always made me feel like I was part of the Kantrovitz family, by not looking down at me or the money but, looking out for my best interest at all times and by treating me like a person, not just another case.”
