Practice areas

I'm Damian Turco and I'm the principal lawyer and owner of Turco Legal, PC, a Massachusetts divorce and family law firm.  Our main office is in Newburyport, but we regularly work and meet clients at our offices in Andover and Boston. 

In addition to my experience in representing hundreds of clients through divorce and other custody cases, I'm very fortunate to have a great staff.  The rest of the team consists of Attorney Kristin Sherman and Attorney Ursula Furi-Perry.  We are all supported by our fantastic paralegal, Danielle Edwards. 

I love handling these cases and getting my clients great results. Part of the challenge is that the subject matter is generally emotional. Another challenge is that the facts and legal issues can be complex, be it due to financial complexity or complicated parenting issues.  Whatever your case involves, chances are that we have represented clients through similar facts. 

We put a considerable amount of guidance and information on our website, particularly the blog, so if you're still trying to get educated, consider reading through our website and subscribing to our newsletter. 

All in all, we have a very reasonably-minded and even keeled team.  We review every case as a team every week, even if for only a brief minute.  Having a team on your side presents the advantage that your case, the facts, the strategy, and every facet thereof, have been vetted from different perspectives, with different experiences and depth of knowledge.  We have over 40 years of combined experience at the practice and we're here for you if you need us.

Before we end, I feel it's important to address our lower income pricing model, which lowers our pricing for those earning under $150,000 per year, with a teired pricing model, charging as little as $100 for attorney work.  That compares to rates of $250/hour typical in Massachusetts for cases of this nature.  Eighty percent of those with cases in probate and family court go unrepresented.  Regardless of your financial condition, when it matters most, you deserve an attorney.  Call us today for a free consultation.  or complete a contact form on our website and we'll contact you back.

Great Attorneys
Had a consult with Damian, Brianna joined us. I have been in a very messy long complex divorce matter for almost eight years now. Multiple assets. I wish I had met with this firm from the very beginning. They are extremely qualified. Damian really took his time in the consult, there was no rush, asked all the right questions, and having a second attorney sit in on the consult was also a really smart idea. His follow up in regards to answering my questions afterwards was more than thorough. An extremely qualified group of attorneys. I highly recommend.

Damian was a great help!
Damian is a warm, kind, and friendly person whom I felt extremely comfortable discussing my situation with. He helped me understand my rights and options fully, and has provided clear guidance as to what we can do and possibly expect. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing honest advice and help from a kind and caring lawyer.

Damian Turco managed my daughters very difficult custody modification. He showed his talent for leadership and negotiation skills during many hearings. He was always available to us and we received prompt communications. His attention to detail is so impressive as well as his honesty and integrity. He came up with a brilliant plan and guided all parties to a successful conclusion. We will be forever grateful to Mr. Turco for his patience and kindness during this most difficult time for our family.

Attorney Turco is there to protect you!
When I decided to have a living will I had no idea what it was all about and what it entailed. When I met Attorney Turco he made it so simple to understand and explained it step by step until I was comfortable with every decision I made. He was professional, polite and showed compassion for my concerns. I would definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Outstanding Legal Services
Attorney Turco represented my family in a legal matter and provided excellent professional services that resulted in a positive outcome of the issue. I would strongly recommend Mass Injury Firm, PC for representation for your personal injury or legal needs.

Would not recommend this firm for divorce
Case was transferred to associates. They did a very poor job, wasting my time and money. Received regular invoices for production, meetings, and essentially little movement. For 1 year of legal fees and not much to show for it, I was invoiced more by Turco Legal than I was over the course of over 3 years by my subsequent divorce attorney that was attentive, efficient, and had a fantastic outcome.
