About me

I decided to attend law school as an adult to further my work with families and children. For over twenty years, I had worked with families and family issues in the non-profit and private education sector. Through my many encounters with families engaged in battles in the legal system, I recognized a need for legal services in the family law and divorce arena that acknowledges the profound effect of divorce on all parties involved and offers legal solutions that work in real, day-to-day life.  I am committed to communicating with my clients to identify their desired outcomes and goals and work diligently to advocate for them throughout the legal process.


I earned my Law Degree magna cum laude from Massachusetts School of Law and am admitted to the Bar in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States District Court - Jurisdiction of Massachusetts. I also hold a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science from New England College in Henniker, NH. 


I am an active in a number of professional organizations including the Plaistow Area Commerce Exchange, where I previously served as a Board Member, the Essex County Bar Association, and the Seacoast Early Learning Alliance where I served as co-chair.

Stacey is one of the most competent, compassionate and skilled attorneys on the panel. I can always count on her to assist clients in matters of divorce, modification, and child support. Our clients are thrilled with her representation.
