About Me

     I provide criminal defense and family law representation and mediation to clients throughout Massachusetts. I am a former Assistant State Attorney at the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, one of the largest and busiest prosecutors' offices in the country, where I gained extensive trial experience in a range of felony and misdemeanor crimes inluding domestic violence charges, aggravated battery, burglary, DUI, and drug trafficking. 

     As a prosecutor responsible for domestic violence cases, I collaborated with the Department of Children and Families and with attorneys handling domestic relations cases connected to the criminal cases I prosecuted. This experience combined with my previous work with domestic violence survivors led me to expand my practice areas to include divorce and other domestic relations law.

  • Yehuda D. B. Bruck

    I endorse this lawyer. Met Andrea when she was a prosecutor in Miami. She was an effective and talented prosecutor; a talent that no doubt serves her well as a private lawyer in Boston.

  • Mark R. Griffith

    Andrea Lance is a skilled litigator who fiercely represents her client's interest. She is an excellent attorney who I would not hesitate to hire were I in need of legal counsel. Most importantly Andrea brings a care and commitment to her client's welfare that is often missing in the legal community. I highly endorse Andrea Lance.
