I am a sole practitioner concentrating in real estate law (closings, sales, purchases, leases, permitting). I also practice in the areas of family law (divorce; child custody and support issues), estate planning, and civil litigation for plaintiffs and defendants. My primary goal is to help all of my clients avoid or solve legal problems in a cost-effective manner.
I was born and raised here in Foxboro. I graduated from Foxboro High School in 1981, Harvard College in 1985, and Boston College Law School in 1990. During and after law school, I worked for Casner & Edwards, a 30-lawyer firm in Boston, concentrating in civil litigation. After six years of experience in Boston, I decided to move back home and establish a smaller practice where I would have daily direct client contact and “hands on” control of every case and matter.
I opened my practice in Foxboro in April, 1996. I truly enjoy helping my clients solve their problems and I intend to practice here for many, many years.

I first met Jeff when we were on opposite sides of a contentious case several years ago. I was very impressed with his demeanor, professionalism, and level of preparation. My respect for him has only grown since that first meeting. Jeff is exceptionally bright, honest, and puts his clients first. He is a tremendous resource, and I have referred several clients to him for consultation and representation. I will continue to do so, and I am very glad to know him.
