About me


I have  had the pleasure of  representing individuals as a Family Law attorney for over 16 years in the Springfield Area. I can provide services in both English and Spanish. My approach to Family Law is family / Child Centered. I have been well trained and I am sensitive to all the issues that may affect you or your family and I have the expeirence to effectively advocate on your behalf.

I have developed a family law practice in the Probate Court representing individuals in divorces, modifications and contempts.  I regularly represent Children in the Probate Court by appointment through The children's Law Project.  

I have regularly been appointed by the Court in State Intervention Case since 1999. These are cases where the Department of Children and Families has taken custody of children.  I am appointed  to represent either the parents or the children.  These case are very difficult and because of their nature these cases are closed to the public and can result in the termination of parental rights.  I have participated in hundreds of these case. 

I am also a Court Investigator for the Juvenile Court for State Intervention Case where the Department of Children and Families has taken custody of children.

I was a Social Worker for the Department of Social Services for 7 years where I provided direct services to my client in both English and Spanish.

    Attorney Pilon is very sensitive to the needs of his family law clients, but also very sensible about what can be achieved in court and what might be mediated. Nevertheless, when it comes time to go to court in a matter, Larry leaves no stone unturned working in behalf of his clients.
