About Me

Every marriage, and every divorce, is unique and different.  The approach to advocacy must be appropriate for the conflict.


 


My firm has offices in Woburn and Saugus, and we make ourselves available to clients to meet their schedules, and their needs.  We are the creators of MA Child Support Calculator App, the only free Massachusetts child support calculator app available on Android smartphones and tablets, and our firm also has a free Alimony Calculator.


 


I have successfully represented individuals through family transitions in the Probate & Family Courts of Middlesex County, Essex County, Suffolk County, Plymouth County, Norfolk County, Bristol County, and Worcester County.  I have successfully mediated divorce and other family law disputes, including prenuptial agreements, child custody issues, alimony and child support.

  • Christopher Michael Boylan

    I endorse this lawyer. Jonathan is very knowledgeable about divorce law. I gladly refer any divorce clients to him because I know he is not only a highly informed and zealous advocate, but he also handles these cases with the care and compassion that is necessary in what is a highly sensitive area of the law.
