I am a trial attorney with a focus on the litigation of all types of domestic relations and criminal defense matters in all courts of the Commonwealth.
I have appeared on MSNBC as a legal commentator and have been quoted by the Boston Globe, the Worcester Telegram and Gazette and various on-line legal publications.
My family law practice includes divorce, custody, adoption, paternity, contempt, grandparent visitation, pre-nuptial and marital agreements and modification.
I am a Guardian Ad Litem and a certified mediator and conciliator.
I handle criminal defense matter in the Superior, District and Juvenile Courts, including various misdemeanors and felonies, such as weapons possession, OUI/DUI, drug offenses, larceny, assault & battery, M.G.L. ch. 209A Restraining Orders and M.G.L. ch. 265 Harassment Prevention Orders.
I know that when you retain me, it is with the utmost trust in addressing very personal, emotional and sensitive issues during some of the most difficult and stressful times of your life. I respect the trust you place in me, and approach resolution of your legal matter zealously, with the knowledge, experience, reasoned decision-making and sensitivity necessary to achieve a successful outcome.
