New Jersey in 1996. She
continued her education at the New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts,
where she earned a Juris Doctor in 1999. Attorney DeBernardis was admitted

Massachusetts in 2003 and the State of New

law. Throughout her practice, she has represented clients in

seller), debt collection, corporate, contract and landlord/tenant
matters. As an attorney serving the Committee for Public Counsel Services,
she provides legal counsel to indigent defendants in the Massachusetts


Attorney DeBernardis has now focused her Massachusetts practice on criminal law and
family law matters.  Her New Hampshire practice
is focused solely on family law matters. 
She can help you with divorce, separation, paternity, custody, parenting
time and child support. She also assists clients in matters where a party may
seek to change an existing court order (modification) or where parties are not
adhering to a court order (contempt). 
She applies her personal and professional experience in every case to
get you the best possible result. 


Realizing that these matters are difficult and confusing,
she will explain the process and explain how your matter will progress.  Knowing what to expect in your matter and
having counsel to advise you on all of the possible outcomes will set your mind
at ease and help you to make a well informed decision in your case.
