About me

Mr. Barriere has extensive litigation experience in the areas of divorce, abuse prevention orders, custody disputes, actions involving the Department of Children and Families (“DCF”), paternity actions, and post-divorce modification and enforcement of alimony, child support, and other judgments. He routinely negotiates and drafts prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, and divorce agreements.

He is also a trained conciliator, certified by the Barnstable County Bar Association.


In his probate litigation practice, Mr. Barriere has represented donors, trustees, executors, and beneficiaries in will contests, fiduciary disputes, and equity actions in the probate court.
