    Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter

  • Jared M. Wood

    In 2007, I was a law clerk for the Probate and Family Court and had the opportunity to observe Attorney Grossman litigate a divorce case at trial. She was sharp, professional, and good on her feet. The judge I clerked for was impressed. Since then, she has been opposing counsel on several cases handled by my firm. Again, she impressed me and my colleagues. Attorney Grossman is a good attorney and a class act. I endorse her.
