Experienced and compassionate assistance no matter what you chooseExperienced, compassionate and zealous representation for all of your Family Law Matters.
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.
