About me

Business people and other savvy clients looking for efficient and effective representation count on Senior Attorney Laurel Barraco to roll up her sleeves and get the job done, especially when it comes to complex divorce cases.

Attorney Barraco views divorce as the ultimate business deal, requiring intensive research and preparation, as well as skillful advocacy, to ensure the best possible result.

She has earned a reputation as a masterful negotiator, often able to settle cases without going through the time and expense of a trial. But she also is a passionate and fierce litigator, ready to tackle opposing counsel in front of any judge, at any time.

Her straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to resolving cases makes her the choice of business owners and other high-net-worth individuals who want to make sure their interests are protected throughout the entire divorce process. She will fight to ensure that any alimony or spousal support is fairly apportioned, based on facts  not emotion.

Attorney Barraco is also the attorney more parents turn to in cases of parental alienation, when the other spouse is trying to sabotage his or her relationship with the children. She values the importance of the parent-child bond and will aggressively fight to ensure that no mother or father is denied that relationship – especially in cases in which a parent has relocated.

Anyone seeking a business-like solution to divorce – one based on fact and not emotion – would be well-served to call Attorney Barraco for efficient and effective representation.

Laurel Barraco is a graduate of the New England School of Law and Northeastern University. She is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
