Areas of Practice


Whether buying your first place, a vacation home, or investment property, real estate purchases involve a significant financial and emotional investment. We work closely with your lender and realtor to advance your interests, protect your deposits, and to ensure a smooth closing. Our team provides every buyer with sound legal advice and guidance at every step. As settlement agent for most national and local lenders, we can handle your closing for you without the need of outside bank counsel.

litigation & Courtroom advocacy

Our office represents individuals and businesses in the courtroom and around the negotiating table in matters ranging from real estate disputes, consumer debt defense, personal injury, and tenant-landlord. We have a proud history of taking complex and challenging cases, and our client's objectives always guide our strategy. While striving for creative and practical solutions from a position of strength and skill, we will not hesitate to pursue traditional courtroom litigation if it serves our client's interests.


Selling a home can be stressful. Let us draft your purchase and sale agreement, negotiate conditions and financing contingencies with your buyer, prepare deed and title documents, and assist in fixing any title defects to clear the way for your closing. Our office will ensure collection of mortgage payoffs, final readings, condo fee and smoke certificates. We offer sellers the option to send us to closing under power of attorney to handle the transaction on your behalf.        

condominium law

We represent developers and entrepreneurs in every phase of condominium formation, including initial purchase, plan and design elements, master deed and trust preparation, and unit sales. We also provide guidance and representation to mature associations in matters of good governance, condo fee collection, rules enforcement, and condominium document revision.

commercial real estate

Our office works as title counsel on commercial transactions ranging from malls to sports arenas to office towers and hotels throughout New England. In addition to being a title insurance producer, our attorneys conduct title examinations, work to resolve complex commercial title issues, and act as escrow agent in deals large and small. We work with developers on condominium conversions and have extensive experience in commercial lease negotiation.

adoption & fertility law

Starting a family can be an immensely rewarding experience, but for many individuals and couples it is also fraught with legal and bureaucratic complexities. Armed with compassion and over ten years of experience in this unique field, our clients are empowered as they grow and protect their families. If you are contemplating surrogacy, a donor agreement, or traditional or co-parent adoption, our firm can help you accomplish their goals with less delay, frustration, and expense.


We can assist you in the formation of your entity including all questions regarding member and shareholder interactions and rights. Our seasoned practitioners can provide sophisticated counsel in the most complex transactions in the corporate world. We can assist you with all forms of contract drafting and review, as well as in financing, fund-raising, acquisition or divestment of assets and shareholder and director rights and responsibilities.


You blew our expectations out of the water. Your patience and guidance made a potentially stressful experience a very fun and positive one.
