Catherine Good

About Me

I have 26 years of hands on experience in family law. I have practiced in each of the probate courts in the Commonwealth and have come to know the nuances of the various judges and court personnel. I also have an extensive background in criminal defense and have represented clients throughout the state.

I graduated from Northeastern University, magna cum laude, with a bachelor of science degree in business administration. I then attended Suffolk University Law School where I received my Juris Doctorate in 1988.

My home base is Westwood, MA but I also have office locations in Hingham, Braintree, Framingham and Waltham.
