Respected. That’s the word most often used to describe Attorney Robert H. Prince, whose impressive legal career spans several decades and includes experience as a police officer, prosecutor and attorney in private practice in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.


Over the years, Attorney Prince has helped hundreds of people with their personal legal matters, including divorce and family law, criminal defense, bankruptcy filings, estate planning, personal injury cases and more. He has earned the respect not only of his clients, but also of opposing counsel and judges because of his experience, knowledge and passionate advocacy on behalf of clients.


Renown as a tough, no-nonsense law enforcement officer, Attorney Prince now is recognized for his compassion and empathy in helping clients navigate the often unfamiliar waters of the legal system. He not only knows the ins and outs of local, state and federal courthouses, but also knows many of the judges, lawyers, prosecutors and staff, having worked with or against them over the years.


Clients appreciate Attorney Prince’s calm, confident demeanor. He will take the time to listen to your legal issue and work with you to develop the best possible legal strategy. Chances are, he’s already had several cases just like yours, so he knows what works – and what won’t. His years of experience in and around courtrooms also give him an edge when dealing with those less skilled or seasoned.


His personal and professional experiences also enable him to provide the best possible representation on a wide range of legal matters. As a divorced father, he understands the emotional and financial upheaval that results from the breakup of a marriage. He represents both men and women, in traditional and same-sex marriages, and fights to ensure a fair and equitable settlement, including alimony and child support issues. Given his background with the criminal justice system, he knows who police and prosecutors build criminal cases so he knows how best to defend against them. He also understands the financial struggles many individuals and families face, especially in the current economy. He helps people file for bankruptcy when they need to escape the stranglehold of mounting debt, and he helps others create wills, living wills, health proxies and estate plans to make sure loved ones are protected in the event of debilitating injury, illness or death.


If you’re looking for a lawyer who knows what it’s like to be in your shoes, you want Attorney Robert Prince. He’ll have your back and be your side until your legal issue is resolved.


Attorney Robert Prince is a graduate of the New England School of Law and the University of New Hampshire. He is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

Outstanding Service with Excellent Results
I am very pleased with my experience with Robert. I have needed his assistance on two separate occasions. He has assisted me in a case involving a restraining order and modification of child support. He has been attentive and thorough in his communication with me throughout. He was also empathetic to my situation, making a very difficult situation much easier. I would definitely recommend Robert to any of my friends and/or family members that would be in need of his services.

Restored my faith in attorneys!
I worked with Attorney Prince for the better part of 2016 and I consider my "stumbling" across his attorney profile and ultimately setting up an initial consultation as one of the luckiest things that happened to me in the last two years. After being treated like just another revenue stream by other attorneys who were quick to try and "wheel and deal" with the other side with zero regard for my own interests I began to feel desperate. Bob Prince restored my faith in attorneys and has helped my entire family through a very difficult time. Honest, direct, hard-working, ethical, compassionate and responsive are some of the immediate thoughts that come to mind after working with this man. He went above and beyond anything he was being paid to assist with. He truly wanted to help me and I felt comfortable being advised by him as I knew he had my best interests at heart. Attorney Prince responded to my inquiries within an hour or two regardless of his case load. He worked tirelessly to deliver an exceptional result to an otherwise awful situation. I recommend him wholeheartedly and he will forever be on my family's Christmas Card list!!! Thank you, Sir!
