About me

Amy Saunders, Esq. is an Attorney and the founder of the Law Offices of Hanson & Saunders in Bridgewater, Massachusetts (www.hansonsaunders.com).  An experienced litigator, she now devotes her practice primarily to family law. Outgoing and down-to-earth, she makes clients and attorneys feel at ease in solving family and divorce disputes.
 
She was legal counsel in what would become the most important decision of the year, by Massachusetts Lawyer Weekly for changing the way bias cases are handled in Massachusetts. She successfully argued 11 out of 11 cases before the Supreme Court, Supreme Judicial Court and Massachusetts Appeals Court. 

As a full-time, single mother and divorcee, she brings invaluable perspective and practical advice to her clients, and an understanding of the need for resolution. Recently remarried, she also knows that life does get better after divorce - even when it seems hard to believe during such a difficult process.
