Ezra’s clients say the nicest things.

I was initially referred to Ezra by a trusted colleague of mine, who mentioned what a wonderful experience she had working alongside him for her first contract. As a surgical fellow who had scant knowledge of how to navigate the process of recruitment/negotiations, I hoped having a source of guidance would be beneficial; I could not have been more correct.

“Ezra was warm, kind, and patient throughout. He was flexible in his ability to meet and the location. My contract was over THIRTY pages, and Ezra took the time to walk me through each page and ensure I understood the language and its significance. He provided insight about what to watch out for, what to fight for, and how to prioritize requests. He gave me the confidence to advocate for myself and ensure the things I felt were important to my professional success were heard by my employer. I ended up signing the contract with complete confidence. I am so thankful for his efforts, and would recommend his services to any of my colleagues embarking on this process. Thanks, Ezra!”

– Michael Sullivan, MD (Brigham and Women’s Hospital)


“I asked Ezra for help selling my practice and becoming an employee of a large hospital system. Ezra represented my interests vigorously and with finesse. There were very sensitive issues involved in the transaction, which Ezra immediately understood and navigated. He worked with me to identify the truly important problems with the contract documents, and pursued the negotiation carefully and consistently to obtain the changes that I needed.

“The final result was a better deal, and one that protected my interests more securely. Ezra’s counsel was right on target. I’ve already recommended him to colleagues, and would definitely seek his help again. He’s the best healthcare attorney I’ve ever used.”

– Peter Lydon, MD (Norwood Hospital, Steward Health Care System)


“I had a great experience with Ezra – I highly recommend him. Ezra goes the extra mile and will come to meet with you in off hours/weekends. I went through several different law firms in the Boston area and their ‘corporate’ philosophy and lack of understanding were obvious. Ezra immediately understood my goals, preferences, and skills and he redrafted the entire contract so that it was tailored to my advantage.”

– Pablo Gomez III, MD (Children’s Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School)


“I had the good fortune to hire Ezra Reinstein for a complex negotiation which included not only a practice sale and employment contract but also lease and sublease agreements. He provided excellent guidance in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. I truly felt that he was watching out for me throughout the process. I highly recommend Ezra and he will be my first call in the future when legal needs arise.”

– Susan Chabot, MD (Norwood Hospital, Steward Medical Group)


“I contacted Ezra before ever having received a job offer to ensure that I would have a skilled attorney in place for contract review and subsequent negotiations. I was impressed by his Harvard credentials/experience with physician contracts, and equally impressed by his warm yet professional demeanor. Ezra was always prompt and detailed with his replies and even visited my workplace to review the contract. He helped explain the difficult language, as well as concerning issues within the contract. He kept me in the loop at all times, and allowed me the opportunity to drop or push for certain points later in the process.

“I hope I won’t have to do this again for some time, but if I do I know who to call. I give Ezra my highest recommendation.”

– M. Shabani, MD (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center)


“Ezra navigated me through a very complex process quickly and with ease, and most importantly, with excellent results. He impressed me with his ability to restructure my medical contract so that it met my needs. He explained the contract in comprehensible terms, and gave recommendations on how it could be improved. I could not be happier that I had Ezra as my lawyer, and I highly recommend him.”

– Elizabeth Budman, MD


“It’s frequently a difficult and uncertain process to find good help when you need it. Invariably, the level of difficulty and uncertainty rise with the height of the stakes. I was lucky to have found Ezra when I really needed help, and I would not hesitate to retain his services again if needed.”

– Alexander Yu, MD (MGH)


“I met Ezra Reinstein while searching for a new attorney to help with my contract renewal negotiation. I was frustrated, after working with prior attorneys whom I felt were not working in my best interest. I had encountered Ezra’s website online under physician contract attorney. His reviews were excellent, and after working with Ezra, the reviews proved to be accurate.

“Ezra listened to my case and was very attentive to my needs. He was willing to help me and was transparent, upfront, and honest with his work and pay rates. I was immediately impressed by his organization skill when he sent me an initial review of my contract. It was evident by his detailed review and recommendations that he had my best interest in mind. He was able to identify possible future issues with the contract that I would have not noted. When it came time to negotiate the renewal contract with my employer, Ezra handled the conversation with utmost professionalism. My negotiations were complicated from the onset and evolved into a severance discussion. Ezra provided noteworthy advice throughout the negotiation that helped lead to a final resolution.

“Ezra sealed a great severance deal for me through his respectful communication and negotiation skills. He proved his ability to handle a unique and complicated negotiation successfully. What most impressed me was Ezra’s ability to listen to what I wanted and then place it in writing, even better than I had expressed!

“Beyond his communication skills he is a great listener. Ezra is a trustworthy attorney who will have your interest in mind at all times. I recommend him highly! I will be seeking his services when a future need arises, as well as recommending him to friends and colleagues in need of assistance with employment contracts.”

– Madeline Colon-Usowicz, MD


“I just wanted to give some feedback about my experience with Ezra. I had the pleasure of working with Ezra few months ago when I got my very first job contract as a Dermatologist. From the very first phone call between us, I realized that Ezra is a truly dedicated professional. He was easy to deal with, was extremely helpful in helping me understand the legalistic language of the contract, and provided in-depth written analysis of my contract. His knowledge of all aspects of physician employment impressed me. He was always available to answer my questions and address my concerns.”

– Minhal Alhashim, MD (Tufts Medical Center)


“Ezra is a truly dedicated professional. He was easy to deal with, honored the deadlines I set for him, and provided in-depth written analysis of my contract. He pointed out how it could be improved. In the end, the contract was changed to my satisfaction. His knowledge of all aspects of physician employment impressed me. He was always available to answer my questions and address my concerns. I recommend him for any physician who is either pursuing employment or having employment issues.”

– Svetlana Budman, MD (Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians, Beth Israel Deaconess)


“I came to Ezra with a particular set of needs and a complicated contract. Ezra took the time to understand the details of my situation. He walked me through the contract with a clear and straightforward analysis, helped me see that the contract was not going to meet my needs, and negotiated vigorously on my behalf. Thanks to his work, I got a contract tailored to my situation, plus a significant increase in compensation. I can’t imagine a better lawyer for doctors. I’d definitely use him again.”

– Roderick McCoy, MD (Kindred Hospital)


“Ezra was extremely helpful in helping me understand the legal language of the contract which for a new graduate can be a daunting task. He is courteous, friendly, and most important, a thorough professional in his work. I am quite pleased with our association and highly recommend him to others without any reservation.”

– Gaurav Bhatia, MD (MGH)


“Working with Ezra was a real pleasure. The hospital’s contract was very complicated, but Ezra walked me through it and explained everything in a way I could clearly understand. We discovered that there were a number of points in the hospital’s offer that were problematic. Ezra found a way to get the hospital to change the contract to resolve some of the greatest problems. I highly recommend him.”

– Manisha Sharma, MD (St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center)


“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ezra Reinstein for more than two years. Ezra is exceptionally dedicated, enormously capable, and deeply insightful.

“At least as important: he is creative, ethical, and funny – a great guy. For any medical professional considering whether to sign a contract with a hospital, clinic, or practice group, I strongly advise you to contact Ezra for help. He has my highest recommendation.”

– Joshua Garren, MD (Lahey Clinic)


“I thought my busy schedule would make it impossible for me to meet with a lawyer. But Ezra made it possible. He was committed to helping me, on my terms, on my schedule. He came to me, at times convenient for me. The contract analysis was focused, insightful, and surprisingly thorough, and his presentation could not have been any clearer. I give Ezra my strongest recommendation.”

– Elena Eberle, MD (Southboro Medical Group)


“We first contacted Ezra at a time of great transition for my family’s business – after many successful years, we were finally looking to sell the company. Ezra helped us understand the deal, came up with creative possibilities we hadn’t thought of, and explained the pros and cons of everything with great clarity. Ezra was efficient, focused, friendly, and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Ezra to anyone who seeks a skilled business attorney.”

– Sharon Smith


“I contacted Ezra for assistance with reviewing an employment contract that I was offered. It was a pleasure working with Ezra. His attention to detail, prompt work, and breadth of knowledge when it comes to specific clauses and the ramification of wording from a legal perspective is commendable. His recommendations for strengthening the contract were well received and we feel that we were able to get a better contract drafted with his assistance. I highly recommend his service.”

– Anju T. Nayar, MD (Burlington Ob-Gyn Associates)


“I had a wonderful experience with Ezra. He was very attentive, patient, and willing to put in time and energy to help me with my contract. I would highly recommend him and will continue to use his services in the future.”

– Danielle Shaper, DPM (Franklin Foot Care)


“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ezra in the past and would do so again. Not only is Ezra sharp and able to quickly cut to the core of an issue, but he is pragmatic, with an intuitive sense of what is important to a client. Furthermore, he has a nice way about him that makes dealing with him a pleasure. He gets my highest recommendation.”

– Louis Neidorf, Esq. (Autonomy Corp.)


“I worked side-by-side with Ezra at a major firm for over a year on a number of projects. By regularly observing his contributions to team meetings and daily discussions, I can say with confidence that his analytical skills are second to none. His ability to illuminate complex issues and reveal probable dangers lurking in the shadows is remarkable, as well as his understanding of the minutiae of legal procedure. Ezra is a valuable colleague; a strong advocate and a good lawyer.”

– Peter Szechenyi, Esq. (Law Office of Peter Szechenyi)
