We offer big city representation from a small town, community-based perspective. Our goal is to be a personal resource for people whatever their legal need.
Peter's motivation to become a lawyer was a desire for answers—the legal system seemed arcane and unapproachable. It needed a new interface; one where regular people can get the information and help they need at a reasonable cost and minimal stuffiness.
Having spent 30+ years in the entertainment business, Peter offers a firsthand understanding of, and pragmatic solutions to, the situations of our creative clients. Playing in, and managing, a band while touring the world, Peter learned to be organized and flexible.
We give you individual attention. Buying a new home or starting a new business is not just a paper transaction—it's a life event that deserves careful attention. We practice gender-neutral law, open to a diverse body of clients.
In the spirit of increasing accessibility to the legal system for underserved people, we devote a portion of our practice to assisting tenants facing eviction and defending low-income people accused of crimes.
From our office in the arts mecca of Northampton, we assist an international clientele. This small town in Western Massachusetts has a long history as a prosperous center of creative activity in all the arts.
You will find us upstairs from Click Workspace, a coworking environment for entrepreneurs, new media workers, writers, editors, sustainability experts, graphic designers and other creative professionals.
