- "Any individual or business considering bankruptcy relief, and any attorney or financial professional wishing to refer a client to a bankruptcy lawyer in the District of Massachusetts, should consider retaining John Sommerstein. John is one of the finest debtor’s attorneys I have encountered in my 42 year career in the bankruptcy field, 26 of which were spent as a United States bankruptcy judge. John is knowledgeable in the complexities of bankruptcy law and its labyrinth of federal and local rules and handles effectively and efficiently all types of business or consumer cases. Although John is an effective negotiator in resolving cases by consent without litigation, he is one of the few bankruptcy lawyers who is skillful in litigating and trying cases in the courtroom. He also knows when to compromise and when to litigate. John’s fees are eminently reasonable, and his ethics are unquestionable. He has an excellent demeanor, showing reasonableness and civility to all. I am pleased to endorse him as an outstanding bankruptcy lawyer." - Hon. Joan N. Feeney (Ret.), JAMS Neutral Panelist


- "John is very knowledgeable of the bankruptcy laws and at all times was very professional. In filing my bankruptcy plan, John informed me of what options I had following the "letter of the law", always keeping my best interest at heart. Over the past several years I've recommended John to family, friends and coworkers. They all speak very highly of John and each one had a successful bankruptcy filing. I would definitely recommend John Sommerstein because frankly, he's the best." - Sarah C.
