About me

I have 26 years of hands on experience in family law. I have practiced in each of the probate courts in the Commonwealth and have come to know the nuances of the various judges and court personnel. I also have an extensive background in criminal defense and have represented clients throughout the state. I graduated from Northeastern University, magna cum laude, with a bachelor of science degree in business administration. I then attended Suffolk University Law School where I received my Juris Doctorate in 1988. My home base is Westwood, MA but I also have office locations in Braintree, Cambridge, Dover, Framingham, Hingham, and Waltham.
