I have 16 years of experience in Family Law. I started in the Boston Courts and moved out to Western MA in 2004 so I have longstanding relationships with the Courts and practitioners in this area. I will help you negotiate family changes. If you are contemplating a dissolution of your marriage I will help you decide the best course of action for you considering your individual situation and the needs of your family. There are many choices including: mediation, attorney assisted mediation, attorney negotiated settlements and litigation. Changes in your family situation can be very stressful and disruptive to you and to your children. Legal paperwork and court proceedings can seem confusing and overwhelming. I will work closely with you, assisting you through every step of the process. My goal is to help you reach a fair resolution to your case. I will work to reach an amicable settlement through negotiation and/or alternative dispute resolution. If adversarial court proceedings are necessary I will fervently advocate for your rights through motion hearings, legal discovery, pre-trial conferences and trial.
