About me


  • Admitted to the Massachusetts Bar, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and the United States Supreme Court, I routinely practice before the Family and Probate Courts in all matters involving divorce, separation, and family law, and before the MCAD regarding employment discrimination issues.

  • In 2007, I was recognized as the "Up and Coming Lawyer of the Year" by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, and in 2010 and 2011 I was named and recognized as an "Outstanding Young Lawyer" and "Rising Star" in the legal profession by the trade publication "Super Lawyers."   

  • I am currently an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of MAss. Law School, and was formerly an Adjunct at the Southern New England School of Law.
