Custody Agreement
I received excellent service, as well as positive feedback and resources to gain and maintain a healthy co-parenting relationship with my childrens father.

True Ptifessionsl
Adam has been a great asset in several real estate transactions. Buyers or Sellers who choose to go it alone, only have themselves to blame when something goes wrong. Atty Avratin is knowledgeable and his advice has been timely and beneficial. Highly recommend

Caring, Compassionate and Excellent Attorney
Adam assisted us in reviewing our Trust Documents to insure all was correct and understood. We found him to be a very compassionate and caring person. He met with our attorney who wrote the trust and asked all the questions we did not think of. Between the two of them we ended up with an excellent trust document.

Adam Avratin... excellent lawyer!
Adam Avratin has been representing me and my son in a custody case for the past five years. During this time, Adam exhibited the highest level of care for my son – and for what is right and just in life (and in the court/world of law). In working with Adam, it became quickly clear to me that Adam was (is) incredibly versed in the rules of law, and he was always incredibly well prepared for discussions. Most important, he was prepared and very articulate in front of the judge. In my case, Adam was far better than the attorney representing the other side, and in every situation, Adam out-classed and out-smarted the other attorney – but not in a sleazy or manipulative way. Rather, Adam knew the facts better, knew the “lawyer rules” better, and knew the case better. And he articulated this so very well to the judge. As a result of Adam's work, I now have 50-50 custody with my son... not an easy feat in the state of Massachusetts. Making it even more difficult were the manipulative tactics and “stretched facts” that the opposing attorney presented. But Adam never gave up nor did he resort to such tactics. He focused on what was best for my son and what the laws would support. I’m now approaching the third year of 50-50 time with my son. My son is healthier, happier, and life is much better (for everyone) because of the new custody arrangement.

Knowledgeable & Effective Attorney
I have utilized the services of Attorney Adam Avratin in numerous capacities over the past 6 years, i.e.: divorce, mediation, will & estate planning, property transfer, defensive litigation. He has proven his knowledge, skill and professionalism in each and every circumstance and his fees are reasonable in comparison to other quotes obtained. Although I prefer a more communicative style, Adam's preparation & effectiveness consistently supersede my whim — His results take precedence instead. I highly recommend him to family, friends and peers, and I strongly suggest that you at least consult with him before choosing an attorney.

The Real Deal
Adam was the real deal. Knowledgeable, passionate and prepared. I wish I had his representation from the start of my divorce. After a couple of years of going through this exhausting process and frivial motions from the other side he put a stop to it with authority. His presence in the courtroom was unmatched from what I've seen in the family law area. When it came right down to brass tax he was at his best, I was lucky to find him at the time I did as a lot was at stake for me. - He delivered.

The Last Stop
after working through several attorneys that "didn't seem to get it", i met Adam. He was not only knowledgeable about the state laws, but has a bedside manner that put me at ease with my decision to hire him. Adam is Man's best friend in divorce situations. I highly recommend him to others.

Top Attorney
I had an extremely rocky divorce which involved children that were wrongfully taken away from me. The process dragged on for almost two years but in the end Atty. Avratin was able to cut through all of the lies and accusations to prove to the judge they were false. Bogus RO's were lifted, reunification is now in progress and were heading in the right direction. Atty. Avratin is without a doubt a master of the craft and is the top in his profession. Highly recommended

A job well done!
After having talked to a number of attorney's about my case, I found Adam Avratin. He quickly assessed my situation and offered hope for a solution where the others did not. I found him extremely knowledgeable and tenacious. In addition, he provided personal guidance and support. Needless to say, the case was settled to my satisfaction. I would recommend him to anyone involved with the complex matter of divorce.

Frank former divorce client
Went through a divorce not because I wanted one, but because she did. I had a lot on my plate.....3 girls, my own business..... A lot to loose not to mention the loss of family life, which I loved. So I was on defense. Adam Avratin knew how hard i worked and how much my girls meant to me. His focus was to settle the divorce as quickly as possible for the families benefit. Adam knows the ropes. He also has a family of lawyers to lean on for advice..... Especially his dad. You don't find that too often and experience is the best teacher . Does divorce cost $?.... Of course. I made my decision to select Adam by asking other noteworthy attorneys who they would hire. Two out of three didn't even ponder....they said Adam Avratin. He got it done via settling out of court. He had no interest of dragging it through the mud. He's busy.....so you got to wait until he's done with his days work before he calls you back. If he answered the phone right away, I'd be nervous. A good hire for me. Hopefully you will hire him if you are reading this.

Avratin law firm 2nd to none
Divorce is very emotional for everyone. Attorney Avratin will guide you in the process. He will respond and keep you informed on information that will effect the outcome of the divorce proceedings. I was guilty in the beginning blasting him with texts and e-mails with unrealistic requests.My divorce lasted 4 years and ended with 4 days of trial.My x-wife spent $675,000.00 I spent $198,000.00 that included all real estate appraisals and business valuations. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my divorce. The lawyer I chose and would recommend with confidence to handle any level of divorce. My x-wife has recommended Attorney Avratin need I say anymore......

Best Divorce Attorney in Massachusetts!
I went through a long 3 year divorce which finalized recently. Adam was recommended to me by several others. I interviewed 3 or 4 attorneys, and he was the one I met with last. As soon as we started talking at his free consultation, I could tell that he was the one I wanted to hire. Adam showed a confidence that could not make you feel anything but comfortable. His pricing was very reasonable compared to the hourly rates of Boston attorneys, and I would match him against anyone out there. We went to court several times, and each time he was professional, completely prepared, and amazing on his feet. No matter what was thrown at him, he had an answer. Throughout the process, I had complete faith and trust in his ability and guidance. As you can imagine, divorce is a very emotional process, and he was always there for me when I truly needed it. I would go on and on with questions and scenarios of what could happen, and he had an uncanny way of taking control and making me feel comfortable. Adam does not waste time. He is honest and gets right to the point. He cuts through all the nonsense and tells it like it is, and that is one thing I really liked about him. He is not going to just tell you what you want to hear. He is going to let you know the realities of your situation and the best steps to succeed. He is incredibly passionate for his clients and is a real fighter. The divorce settlement was certainly more than I had hoped for (after hearing from so many others I knew that had been through the same). He was very familiar with the court and all of the personnel there. It was obvious that he was there all the time and knew how to handle himself. At this time, I consider him a friend. Every once in a while, I have a question for him, and he is always there for answers. I can't recommend someone more highly then Adam. If anything, meet with him and you will see what I mean. Great attorney. Great guy. Great results.
