A Total Effort for Every Individual We Serve

Family Law Lawyers

We primarily handle divorce, and other serious family law matters.

Divorce and other serious family conflicts are life-changing and tremendously stressful. Our Boston divorce attorneys engage closely with clients to help them achieve the best possible outcomes and move forward without regrets. We target positive divorce settlements through negotiation, but we are also proven, dynamic litigators equipped to handle the most intensely disputed cases. Our lawyers' decades of extensive experience covers the full spectrum of Massachusetts family law, including many child custody disputes, high-net-worth cases, same-sex issues and modifications.

Criminal Defense Lawyers

When faced with serious, potentially life-changing matters across the spectrum of criminal law, it is essential to work with a Boston attorney who will take the time to understand your challenges and grasp your most important goals.  In-depth knowledge of relevant laws and the court system are essential, and so is aggressive representation by a firm that gives your individual case all the attention it deserves, while offering experience, creativity and superb judgment to resolve your problems. We offer misdemeanor and felony criminal defense, including providing skilled advocacy for people charged with federal crimes. Our track record also includes successful resolution of serious personal injury cases, this includes a $27.5 million verdict in a wrongful death case, and other civil litigation matters.
