Attorney Brendan L. Ward focuses his practice on Estate Planning for Families with young Children and Same Sex Couples along with Family Law Litigation.
Mr. Ward has worked with couples navigating original divorces as well as individuals litigating post-divorce actions. Mr. Ward also frequently represents parents of children that were never married that need to clarify their rights and obligations. Regardless of the situation Mr. Ward is dedicated to helping his clients through thorny family disputes. Throughout his career Attorney Ward has had the opportunity to represent litigants in the Probate & Family Court dealing with difficult family issues in a fair and reasonable manner.
Mr. Ward is a frequent attendee at Continuing Legal Education seminars in Massachusetts and has recently attended many seminars on the Massachusetts Alimony Reform Statute. The new law in Massachusetts dealing with new Alimony cases has created great clarity and guidance for litigants dealing with potential Alimony scenarios.
