What Clients are Saying

“Attorney Jason Gregoire represented me in the sale of my dental practice to my associate. From our first Zoom meeting on a Sunday night, Jason was always available to answer my phone calls and/or reply to my emails in a timely manner. His ability to draft, review and edit contracts and other legal documents made the process go smoothly. I found him to be an efficient and effective advocate for me when it came to negotiating contract details with the buyer’s counsel. Without any hesitation, whatsoever, I can recommend Jason to anyone wishing to buy or sell a dental practice.” ~ Frederic S. Mackler, DMD, MA, West Springfield, MA

I sincerely thank him from the bottom of my heart for all the help. It was an awesome experience working with him and his team. I am so relieved that I have found Jason to be on my support team in business!” ~ Harbpinder Shevchenko, DMD, Owner, Smiles of Salem
