Review James Cormier

About Me

I am a founding partner at Cormier & Cormier, L.L.P., a small family law firm located in Lowell, Massachusetts.  


After spending several years as an Assistant District Attorney in the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office, I took the trial experience I gained there and applied it toward opening my own private criminal defense practice.  Partnering with my father in our new firm has expanded my resources as an attorney opened my practice up to new opportunities.  Our firm's unique combination of complementary legal expertise provides a reliable, community-based source of legal services for the Greater Lowell area.


We are ready to help guide you with any of your legal problems.
