“Teresa came highly recommended to me by several of her past clients in the North Shore area. I needed an attorney who specializes in family law, specifically divorce with children involved. Throughout the entire process Teresa was responsive, organized, experienced and knowledgeable. She always provided me with all my options, pros/cons and her recommendation with the understanding that the decisions are mine to make. I would recommend Teresa to anyone needing similar legal assistance.”

“I came to Teresa with a complicated problem.  I was in a difficult situation with my ex-wife who had left myself and my infant son many years before, and then, years later, was attempting to sue me despite a clear agreement we had reached for joint custody. Teresa handled the case in an utterly professional fashion.  Not only was she unquestionably precise in her assessment of the matter she helped diffuse a very tense situation and managed to guide us to a new settlement despite many challenges.  I would highly recommend Teresa for any case given her integrity, impeccable wit and genuine concern for her clients’ welfare.”

"I hired Teresa to work on my prenup. As my husband is a lawyer is was crucial that I had someone extremely knowledgeable in this area of law. Teresa was thorough and professional from beginning to end. She was smart, quick and tough when it came to negotiations and at all time I felt completely confident that my interests both short term and long into the future were protected.  She was also kind, patient and thoughtful when dealing with my husband and me.  I cannot recommend her enough."

"I recently had the opportunity to work with Teresa and cannot recommend her highly enough. The last thing I wanted to think of just before getting married was a premarital agreement, but as a business owner who was getting married a bit further along in life, I knew I needed to be pragmatic and protect what I worked for. Teresa completely understood my concerns and, quite frankly, my doubts about  making such an uncomfortable decision. She walked me through the process with amazing care and competence and was very attentive to my concerns.  Teresa educated me and explained everything in plain terms throughout the entire process. In short, she made something difficult and uncomfortable a whole lot easier."

"I’m so fortunate to have been represented by Teresa in my child custody/modification of support case. Living out of state but needing representation in Massachusetts, I felt a bit discouraged and overwhelmed when it came to finding an attorney I could have complete confidence in. From the get-go, Teresa erased such fears and immediately began to assist, step by step, and guide me with assurance. With her knowledge, expertise, thoroughness and dedication, she walked me through the process with sound advice while allowing me to come to my own decisions with clarity and surety. Understanding and supportive, her professionalism was not lacking the warmth of someone who genuinely cared. Teresa was able to produce successful results in a timely manner and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. There is no one better I would recommend."
