Family Law


Our Family Law practice group – one of the largest in Massachusetts – provides highly sophisticated expertise to clients in addressing their concerns and achieving favorable outcomes.  Domestic relations cases often involve financial and emotional challenges for clients.  Our attorneys are acutely sensitive to these concerns as they guide clients through the process.

With decades of collective experience, our attorneys are as equally adept at vigorously protecting our clients’ interests in court as they are at achieving negotiated settlements.  We tailor the appropriate strategies and tactics to each individual case and provide clients with a focused team approach.

A distinguishing feature of our practice group is our ability to effectively handle high net worth divorce cases involving complex financial issues – including business interests, trusts, stock options, complex investments, and business arrangements.

Clients in need of sophisticated legal analysis rely on our in-depth knowledge and skills to evaluate and handle cases on appeal.  Our attorneys have been involved in numerous cutting-edge decisions on a wide range of issues important to families, including the enforceability of surrogate parenting agreements, the rights of de facto parents, the standards for allowing the relocation of children outside of Massachusetts, and the constitutionality of prior restraint orders on First Amendment freedoms of speech

Our team represents clients in all aspects of domestic relations law, including:

  • Divorce
  • Custody and parenting issues
  • Child support and alimony
  • Property division
  • Modifications
  • Contempt
  • Abuse prevention orders
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Representation of LGBTQ individuals and families
  • Appeals

Our attorneys also serve in a variety of neutral roles, including mediator, conciliator, arbitrator, guardian, parenting coordinator, and special master, including by court appointment.  They frequently lecture on a variety of domestic relations issues and are routinely recognized in leading professional directories such as Best Lawyers in America.

Over the years we have established a broad network of professionals with whom we collaborate for specialized assistance, including business and estate valuation, forensic accounting, tax analysis, and psychological evaluations and opinions.  Our firm offers a wide array of litigation expertise, allowing our Family Law practice group to collaborate as needed with other attorneys at the firm to litigate business, real estate, trust, and fiduciary issues.
