"I was injured at work at an automobile dealership where I was employed for six years. I was replacing one transmission and installing a newer one, when I slipped and severely injured my leg and stomach. Besides the new injuries, I reinjured an old one.

After returning to light duty a few months later, my job duties changes again. I was in pain. An orthopedic doctor, not a soft-tissue specialist, said there was nothing wrong with me. But the pain continued.

That's when I hired Brian Cunha & Associates to handle my workers' compensation case. I had a family to support and wanted to know my legal rights.

I was extremely satisfied with the way Attorney Honey Polner handled my case. She was on top of everything – all of the time – making sure that every issue was addressed. I was overwhelmed by her performance and so much so that I later turned to Brian Cunha & Associates to resolve another legal matter.

My only regret in all of this is that I didn't contact the firm sooner."

Just a note to let you know how very pleased we were with Sharon Sybel's handling of our mother’s case. From day one she was very supportive and attentive in what needed to be done and the outreach was there with any questions we had with follow-up calls or meetings.

Sharon also worked hard in acquiring the necessary paperwork from the insurance company, hospital and former nursing home in which mother’s pain and suffering was compensated for in the end. Sharon was wonderful to work with and God forbid if an incident occurs down the road, I will no doubt call your firm. Your expertise has gone beyond what we had expected. Kudos – and many thanks.

I could not be happier with the services provided. Brian Cunha is amazing. While walking home from school my son was hit by a car. I have been to other attorneys and Attorney Cunha was the best. He answered my questions and he and his staff let me know what was happening with the case. He was caring and more attentive to our needs than anyone else we have seen. Despite another attorney turning down the case because he didn’t think it was winnable the case was resolved in favor of my son and the insurance company paid a settlement. I highly recommend this law firm.

My Wife and I contacted Brian Cunha and Associates following our first major car accident in Rhode Island. Their strong reputation and more professional online presence made the decision to contact them first an easy one, with so many other gimmicky competitors out there to sort through. We simply could not have made a better choice.

We were treated as if our case was the most important case that they had from start to finish. Our questions (and we had a lot of them!) were always promptly answered even when reaching out via phone or email. Each step of the process was always explained in a way that we could easily understand and they always kept us in the loop. We always felt fully confident in their teams abilities to work our case, which minimized our overall stress and that really goes a long way when going through something like this.

Our final settlement far exceeded any of our expectations both in amount and overall time of completion. This certainly helped my Wife and I to get our lives back on track and put the accident behind us much sooner than expected.

If you are in search of a professional and courteous team that will get you results, look no further than Brian Cunha and Associates. We truly could not have had a better experience and will surely recommend their services to anyone we come across that needs legal assistance.

I had a great experience at this firm. Attorney Destefano represented my case. She is extremely caring, attentive, and very thorough.. The office also accommodated our appointments around my work schedule. I could not have won my case without her help. Definitely would recommend this firm to anyone. I would return for future legal representation. Extremely pleased and thankful!!

Grace Coelho

I would highly recommend Brian Cunha & Associates. After being in a car accident there were many choices of who to use; I wanted someone to help me navigate through making sure my medical bills were paid, and of course getting me back on the road as my car was totaled. I am so glad I chose to go with Brian Cunha & Associates. My claim was settled quicker than I would have expected and I was able to recoup for my losses and then some. I cannot say enough good things about Nelia in particular; she was wonderful and always made time for me.

I would highly recommend Brian Cunha. He and his firm did a wonderful job with my case. The results were excellent....a great settlement in a flash. I’m certain no one could have done a better job.

kate mcgarr

Excellent firm!

Brian listened to what I had to say and returned my calls when I had concerns. My settlement was more than I had hoped for! Everyone at Brian Cunha and Associates are invested in advocating for you and are extremely helpful and professional. I definitely made the right choice!

Bekki Schenker

I would strongly recommend Brian Cunha’s office.. The staff is always courteous and very helpful.. Hired them to help with a car accident. There are always many concerns and questions when dealing with these issues and left there feeling comfortable.. They did a great job settling my case and getting all bills paid. Thank you Brian Cunha & Associates.

Any person who has ever visited a courtroom knows not only the overwhelming feeling of dread, anxiety, and just the lack of not understanding of what's being said or what is going on. Especially when children are involved. The associates at Brian Cunha's law firm have been absolutely wonderful throughout my ordeal, but Attorney Nelia Destefano has made me feel like family. The provided support and guidance that I have received and continue to receive is absolutely hands down the best. I've had many lawyers throughout the years, and I can finally say my search for the best is over. I have found not only the best, but the most caring bunch of associates and staff members. Thank you Nelia and staff, I could not have done my legal journey without you guys!

April Gouveia

Thank you Nelia Destefano for your persistence on my cases. From car accidents to custody.. Brian and Nelia run a great firm honest and with care for all clients with drive to get what you deserve...

Extremely professional, friendly staff, and so efficient!! I proudly refer them, as they helped me win a settlement in a very timely manner and for a very satisfying amount.

A teenager rear ended me on Bedford Street in the stop and go traffic. I didn't think it was that big a deal even though my car's bumper had some damage and I got a jolt when she hit me. I did not have a problem getting the car repaired by over the course of the next day I developed a pain in my neck so bad that I was unable to sit at my computer all day and work! It did not get better and I was missing working and losing pay. The insurance company was no help so I went to two different attorneys who basically said they could do nothing for me. I called Attorney Cunha because I thought the worst that can happen is he won't be able to help me either. He was absolutely the best! He got my medical bills covered and I got some compensation from the time I missed from work. So glad I called him. I learned when looking for an attorney go with someone that has been doing auto accidents cases for a long time because they know the system and how to get compensation for injuries.

Judy Que

I would highly recommend Brian Cunha he settled my car accident case in Fall River Massachusetts very satisfactorily he always got back to me and he also help me out greatly and in employment litigation case in which we successfully settled in my favor?? his staff is also very professional and follows up with me when needed on my personal injury case which have been settled very successfully in my favor.

Rick Lynch

Thank you Brian for going to battle for me against the insurance company. What you said at the first meeting was exactly how much I got for my injuries. I am glad I didn't just give up.

"I was injured at work at a tire company in Somerset. As I was mounting one of the tires, the machine sliced my right foot – like a razor blade. I faced five surgeries that resulted in an amputation of all of the toes on my right foot.

Honey Polner handled my legal case and so much more. From the very beginning, she was right to the point and at the same time so considerate and caring. I could not have gone through this legal and medical ordeal without her help.

This world would be a better place if more people were like Honey Polner. She and everybody at Brian Cunha & Associates were so helpful, knowledgeable and considerate. I would recommend anyone to this law firm – without hesitation. In fact, I already have."

"I recently retained Brian Cunha's law firm. He did great work for us. He set out what he was going to do, and he delivered. I would absolutely recommend his firm to family, friends and business associates."
Stuart Hebb, Miami, FL

"I could not have been more satisfied with the services that I received from Brian Cunha & Associates. Brian was just perfect to deal with. In my opinion, he is the absolute best. I would never turn to anyone else. I was injured in an automobile accident by a third party. I couldn't believe the amount of the settlement that Brian obtained for me. It was beyond anything I could have imagined."

"I have a handicapped child at home, and the settlement has certainly been a big help for my family. I appreciate everything that was done for me. I have already enthusiastically referred family and friends to the firm and will continue to do so."

Mary Conti, Providence, RI

"The service was wonderful, and the personal attention to my individual situation was excellent. I was kept updated on my automobile accident case by Nel, my attorney. The personnel in the office were also great to talk to.
Most importantly, I was especially satisfied with the result and the overall quality of the representation.
My husband once suffered an injury at work and saw another attorney at another firm – he would have done better with Brian Cunha & Associates.
I would definitely come back to Brian Cunha & Associates and will not hesitate to refer family and friends. "
Peggy Pimental, Fall River MA.

"Brian Cunha did an extraordinary job for me. The end result was amazing – you can't ask for more than that.
I had two problems. First, I was bitten by a dog. Brian handled that case expeditiously and got a great result.
At the same time, the company I worked for wouldn't pay my commissions; this was very problematic as I had three children in college. Brian was able to achieve a great result in that case as well, which would never have happened without Brian.
During the days leading up to the trial, I would naturally dwell on my case because it was so important to me. But not every issue was that important legally. Brian was especially sensitive and thoughtful in helping me understand what was legally significant about my case – to help me focus on what was legally important and what was not.
I could not have asked for more of him and his overall attentiveness. If I asked him a question in the morning I would receive a text, e-mail or personal phone call that day.
Brian also had a remarkable command of the issues and the law in what was a very complex, employment law case. His personnel were very efficient.
I was very, very happy with the outcome and especially pleased with the overall process. I will certainly refer my family and friends to Brian Cunha & Associate and not hesitate at all to call on the firm in the future."

"I was involved in a serious automobile accident in Bristol in which a tree crushed my vehicle, causing me to break my neck. Surgery and a painful recovery period followed.
A rather unique lawsuit was brought on my behalf against the town of Bristol, the town's tree warden, and the tree service company responsible for maintaining the site. The case settled very favorably for me – right before the start of trial. I was represented by Karen Alegria and Brian Cunha – and was very pleased with all of their efforts and the overall quality of their legal representation.
I was especially well-satisfied with Brian Cunha & Associates, Brian and Karen and with their attentiveness to my case."
Anthony Cardoza, Bristol, RI

"I have dealt with Sharon Sybel over many years; she is absolutely fantastic. She has handled three cases for me, and I will continue to rely on her in the future. I have referred family and friends to her and will continue to do so.
In one memorable and especially tragic case, my very troubled cousin left her supposedly secured nursing home facility unsupervised – and eventually died as a result. This happened as my family was in the process of transferring her to a much better facility.
I can't say enough good things about Sharon Sybel. She achieved justice for me and my family by proving that the nursing home was liable for my cousin's death."
Lewis Brooks, Fall River Mass.

"I turned to Brian Cunha & Associates to resolve my recent automobile accident case. My lawyer, Sharon Sybel, was just awesome. She responded to all of my questions and her knowledge of the law was just perfect. The overall quality of my legal representation was excellent. The firm's staff members were most helpful to deal with as well.
I would not hesitate to turn to Brian Cunha & Associates in the future. I would gladly recommend the firm to family and friends."
This case resulted in a $30,000.00 jury verdict at the Fall River District Court and involved soft tissue injuries. There was no offer from the insurance carrier prior to trial.
