With over twenty-five years of experience practicing family law in Massachusetts, I have been counsel in notable trial court decisions such as a Norfolk Probate Court order granting mistrial of a divorce trial. I have appeared before the Supreme Judicial Court and presented numerous appeals before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, and have been counsel of record in several published and unpublished decisions dealing with child custody issues. In addition to my private practice, I am a mentor member of the Committee for Public Counsel Services Children and Family Law Appeals Panel, handling child welfare appeals.
