I handle all types of Divorce and Family Law cases throughout Worcester County and other counties in the Commonwealth. These are related to contested and uncontested divorce and post-divorce litigation. I deal with issues such as overdue child support, modifications, contempts, debt and property division, adoption, paternity, domestic violence, breach of agreement, restraining orders, child custody and visitation.

I was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 2000 and have primarily worked in Suffolk, Worcester and Middlesex County Probate Courts. I have a history of helping the indigent and I have proudly served with Worcester County Volunteer Lawyers, Middlesex County Volunteer Lawyers and the Women’s Bar Association of Boston.

Notwithstanding if I am practicing pro bono or not I serve all of my clients zealously and on a complete and equal basis.

The practice of Family Law can present a wide variety of complicated issues to resolve. A Lawyer expert in resolving Family Law issues both big and small can prove to be invaluable. It makes sense to choose an attorney who will work hard and care about results.

I will provide you with competent and expert legal representation as well as reasonable and competitive rates.

No matter if your case settles or is tried before the bench I am passionate about getting you the best possible results. I will explain the rules, laws and procedures Constitutionally available to you so as to develop the best possible legal strategy.


  • Bachelor of Arts, Economics, Framingham State College, 1990
  • ABA Approved Paralegal Certificate, Bentley College, 1992
  • Juris Doctor, Western State University College of Law, 1998

I also have experience with cases concerning interstate child rights typically relating to modification of foreign custody or child support orders.

Services included are:

  • Divorce and post-divorce related isssues
  • Paternity
  • Custody
  • Visitation
  • Modification
  • Contempt
  • Restraining Orders
  • Alimony
  • College Expenses
  • Property Division
  • Child Support
  • Debt Division
  • Interstate Child Rights

As a Family Law Lawyer the experience I have gained over 12 years has convinced me that if you are contemplentating filing for divorce or a divorce related action such as alimony, property division, custody, visitation or child support you should have legal representation. These typically are the most difficult cases and I have seen people go at it alone only to realize too late that they needed a lawyer. In busy courts such as Suffolk, Worcester and Middlesex a divorce lawyer can cut through the red tape and be the expedient choice.
