Co-Parenting In Massachusetts

When you entrust your family's future to me, you become part of my family as well. Since becoming a lawyer more than 10 years ago, I have dedicated my life and career to helping families resolve their legal matters peacefully. In any family law matter involving a child, my primary goal is to craft a solution that protects the best interests of the child.

In most situations, that involves reaching a custody agreement that allows each parent to play a role in the child's life. I help parents through mediation, negotiation and other methods to reach custody and parenting-time agreements that preserve their parental rights and the rights of their child.

Often, through no fault of their own, parents conflate their best interests with those of their child. I work with parents to help them step away from their own concerns and focus on their child. Together, we can determine what is truly in the child's best interests, then work toward solutions that put those interests first.

Advocating For The Best Interests Of Children

While championing the rights of children in my private practice, I also do a great deal of pro bono work for the benefit of children. I am a member of Attorneys Representing Children, or ARC, a program that provides pro bono representation to children whose parents are going through a high-conflict divorce.

I also serve as a Guardian ad Litem in family and probate matters, and I am an active member of the Massachusetts Association of Guardians ad Litem.
