Leila Judith Wons

About me

As founder of the Law Office of Leila J. Wons, P.C., I focus primarily on domestic relations matters, including divorce, child custody and support, paternity, modifications of prior and foreign judgments, contempts, same-sex family law matters, mediation, collaborative law and restraining order hearings.


In December 2010, I was fortunate enough to assist in the preparation of and sit second-chair at the oral argument of Smith v. McDonald,  a paternity and removal case argued before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Since then, I have continued to engage in appellate advocacy.
