I was given Mr. Hranitz name by the MA ABA. We discussed the possibility of representation. He did examine my case at the court. However it took well over 6 weeks to finally get a response from him. Since the court date is now less than two weeks that leaves me little time to come up with an alternative. Below is his email after I had tried to reach him on numerous occasions. All I expected was a response.

The purpose of this e-mail is to make clear that I have not agreed to represent you on any matter in the Probate and Family Courts or otherwise. While I understand you have some legal concerns, I am not available and will not be available to represent your interests. I will not consider any further communication on this topic.

If you feel that you genuinely need assistance and are unable to afford a lawyer I implore you to contact the Massachusetts Bar Association and inquire about the availability of pro bono services.

I wish you the best of luck in your continuing endeavors and hope that you will be able to resolve your issues with finality in the family court.
