Divorce in Massachusetts and New Hampshire
Understanding the financial and legal implications of a divorce is extremely important when dividing marital assets through property division, calculating child support payments, and determining child custody and visitation arrangements. We help clients at every stage of a divorce and take steps to ensure they aren’t burdened by a divorce settlement they later come to regret.

Our attorneys represent individuals who have been injured by the negligence of another person or entity. We seek fair and maximum compensation for people who have been injured by car accidents, nursing home abuse or neglect, and slip-and-fall accidents.
