Practice Areas

Bringing you a diversity of knowledge, depth, expertise, and a practical background.

My prior tenure at venerable Boston law firms followed by a suburban law practice has given me a diversity of knowledge, depth, expertise, and a practical background for conflict resolution and complex negotiations. I am able to bring decades of experience to your legal questions, problems and court proceedings. My real world experience typically leads to practical and creative solutions to your issues. For small business and individuals, this means that civil and commercial litigation matters and administrative hearings are handled efficiently and economically. Moreover, detailed contract drafting and review addresses potentially unforeseen circumstances saving you thousands of dollars down the road.

For those individuals with family law or domestic relations matters including divorce, marital separation, child support, child custody and visitation, alimony, modification or enforcement issues, I pride myself on not only on an ability to resolve matters through patient and diligent attention to details leading to creative solutions outside the box but also on the willingness to provide the vigorous advocacy necessary to advance your positions should adversarial court proceedings warrant.

Additionally, I have counseled clients with respect to residential real estate transactions including purchase and sale agreements and purchase offers as well as commercial lease negotiations and contract disputes. Typically, these same clients will subsequently require general estate planning such as Wills, Health Care Proxy, Powers of Attorney, and Trust creation.

Finally, as a result of my now nearly thirty years of working for one of the country's leading humane societies assisting in the investigation and prosecution of animal cruelty cases as well as operational issues, I am regularly asked to consult on legislative drafting. In addition, I am available, and have frequently served, as a consultant, both locally and nationally, to other humane organizations, district attorney offices, municipalities, animal control officers, and town counsel for all matters involving animal welfare.
