Bulkley Richardson, with offices in Springfield, Boston and Amherst, Massachusetts, provides high-quality legal services addressing a broad range of sophisticated matters. Founded in the 1920s, our firm's standard of excellence is built upon the quality of our lawyers, support staff, and physical and technological resources.

With over 40 lawyers, we are, in comparison to firms based in New York and Boston, a mid-sized law firm that emphasizes personal contact with clients and efficient, cost-effective service. While the quality of our services equals that of large national firms, our interest in long-term client relationships and appreciation of each client's desire for cost-effective representation emulate attributes of small local law firms.

Our facilities include a large private law library, ample conference room space and the latest in research, information processing and communications technology in all of our locations.

Commitment to Clients

While we provide legal advice, assistance and representation in many areas, we seek always to maintain a reputation for specializing in client service and satisfaction. We understand that our clients' objectives determine legal strategies, not vice versa. We commit ourselves to those objectives, and bring our talent, experience, energy, common sense and integrity to bear to meet them effectively and efficiently.

Commitment to Quality

We have a team of exceptionally talented attorneys and staff with a reputation for high-quality legal work. We understand that such a reputation has to be earned every day, on every matter, for every client. Our departments and practice groups are made up of lawyers with excellent academic credentials, substantial experience, the respect of colleagues and courts, and a pragmatic approach to problem solving. We combine our abilities with our commitment to client service to ensure the quality our clients deserve.

Commitment to Community

We cherish and work hard to maintain our reputation as a firm committed to the communities in which our clients and we live and work. As a firm and individually, we actively participate in professional, civic, political, educational, social service and cultural organizations and causes. As legal counselors, board members, volunteers and supporters, we are proud to help many organizations and institutions in their efforts to improve the quality of life in our communities.
