About me

There are a lot of lawyers around. And there are a few of them who sometimes dabble in bankruptcy cases. But for me, bankruptcy law is the main focus of my work, and helping people out of debt is what I enjoy doing, not just a sideline.

I don’t hustle divorce cases, I don’t chase ambulances, and I don’t pass papers on real estate deals. This lets me focus on the developments in the bankruptcy laws so that I can represent you effectively.


I have been a bankruptcy lawyer in the Merrimack Valley since 1994. I am a member of both the Massachusetts and New Hampshire bar associations, and I can help you escape from a life of debt if you currently reside in either state.

When you hire me you’ll always be represented by a qualified, experienced bankruptcy lawyer who understands your problems and can help you find the right solution. At my office, you won’t meet with a paralegal, you won’t have to fill out your life history just to get an interview, and you won’t wait for weeks until an appointment becomes available.


When you hire me, you’ll get an honest opinion from a bankruptcy lawyer with years of experience. As soon as you hire me, I will make sure that harassing phone calls stop immediately – not next week or next month. Letters at home and calls at work will stop too – and if they don’t, I’ll help you fight back against abusive debt collectors. You will be represented in court by Douglas J. Beaton – the same lawyer you hired, not some assistant who just got handed your file – and you’ll be prepared for the bankruptcy process so we can deal with any problems.
