"When it's important enough to hire an expert."

 

 

 

I am an Attorney, Mediator, Guardian ad Litem, and Collaborative Law Practitioner, with more than 30 years' experience in the courtroom trying cases. I represent my clients with skill, commitment and courage. Although I believe my clients are often better served through other methods of dispute resolution, rather than through litigation, I will fight for my clients. I remain on the cutting edge of technology, which gives me a decided advantage over yesterday’s practitioners. I charge rates for my services which are competitive with any other firm and issue detailed accounting of my fees.

 

 

 

My office has recently been completely remodeled and provides an ideal place for legal meetings or mediation, with a large conference room and separate rooms for each party. I am conveniently located just 10 minutes from Milford, 20 minutes from Peterborough, and 25 minutes from Nashua.

Extremely Helpful
Joseph Caulfield is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to knowing his facts. He is always looking out for his client's best interest. He was able to get negotiate the best deal for myself reducing my penalties from a misdemeanor to a violation. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a criminal defense lawyer.

Professional representation
Attorney Caulfield agreed to take my case and represent me at a time when I was confronted with an immediate filing deadline for a critical court document attendant to a soon to be convened court appearance.. He immediately took control of the case and requested relevant documentation/information required to provide a complete and timely response to the court filing. Attorney Caulfield engaged in various other communiqués with the opposing party and always informed me of his initiative and the response he received. Prior to the court date attorney Caulfield attempted to resolve the case to avoid the time and expense of attending the court hearing and perhaps a follow up trial. Attorney Caulfield accommodated the scheduled hearing date, arrived early at court on the hearing date and was thoroughly prepared for the case. Attorney Caulfield remained focused on my case and exhibited and “economy of action” to the extent he did not engage in extraneous or superfluous communications In order to generate additional or unnecessary fees. As well, I appreciated the “reality checks” attorney Caulfield provided based upon his 30 plus years of legal practice.

Big Talk
Attorney Caulfield represented me in a divorce. He made a lot of bit talk, insisted on doing things his way and got us in front of associate justice Edward Ginsberg, a judge that he knew would rule against - the family. His inept handling of the case played into the hands of the slick opponent, who ran with every advantage. The results are profoundly damaged children, mind-boggling costs to the state and my personal and professional destruction. In retrospect, it is unclear if attorney Caulfield even understood the incompetence he demonstrated or the profound harm he caused to my family.

Response from Joseph Caulfield July 28, 2019
In 2002, Frederick Peralta and his mother, choose to enter into a separation agreement, rather than risk an adverse decision from the probate and family court. Seventeen years later, Mr. Peralta has decided his lawyer and the judge “done him wrong,” his wife’s lawyer was “sick,” and we all caused his “personal and professional destruction.” To right this great wrong, Mr. Peralta has started posting “poison pen” reviews of me. His last review was removed two months ago by Avvo for violation of its standards concerning lewdness and accusations of criminal activity or unethical behavior. I tried to write to Mr. Peralta at 118 South Palm Dr., Brunswick, GA 31525, but he has no mailbox. I suppose if he continues to try to harm me, must fly down and visit him.
