The firm represents clients in initial dissolution of marriage actions in both contested and uncontested divorces. Massachusetts is a no-fault state leading most frequently to filing of a contested matter on the grounds of irretrievable breakdown. From the outset of the filing of an action our lawyers carefully approach each contested matter steering the litigation through the court system of Massachusetts from preliminary motion hearings, through the discovery phase, pre-trial hearings, trial and appeal, if needed. At every stage of the litigation process, our attorneys strategize and evaluate each case in order to advise the client as to the risks and costs of litigation versus settlement. This careful approach allows each client to make well informed divisions with the support of our team. Our attorneys are familiar with the court system in all counties in Massachusetts including Suffolk, Middlesex, Norfolk, Essex and Plymouth.
