Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Divorce Lawyers
Serving Boston, South Shore, Plymouth, Brockton and all of Cape Cod
Massachusetts Family Law Group is one of the preeminent divorce and family law firms on the South Shore, South Coast and Cape Cod. We are dedicated to practicing divorce, paternity, custody, child support, alimony and property division. We also handle all post-divorce matters issues such as modification and contempt. Our clients include men and women, fathers, mothers and grandparents.
Our lawyers believe in a common-sense approach to litigating our clients' cases. We analyze each client's situation to offer strategic and intelligent representation. Each of our attorneys knows that the best approach is the one that fits your particular needs, not someone else's.
Local Knowledge, Local Courts
One of the advantages of working with our law firm is our five convenient offices — each strategically located across the Commonwealth. Rather than having one central location in downtown Boston, our offices are located right next to the courthouses. A key benefit of our firm is that each attorney is assigned to a specific region and set of courthouses in order to become familiar with each of the judges and procedures of his or her assigned court.
Since each court has its own ways of doing things, our legal team knows how family law is practiced in specific courts, like the courts in Plymouth, Brockton, New Bedford, Fall River and Barnstable. Even within the same court, one judge is likely to handle a matter differently than another. Our attorneys know the individual preferences of each judge.
A Statewide Brain Trust of Divorce and Family Law
Having multiple offices means that our clients are not dependent on one attorney. Rather, each is served by a statewide team of divorce lawyers and experts. We work with financial specialists, real estate appraisers, child psychologists, child custody evaluators and many other experts, depending on the requirements of the case.
Our attorneys handle all matters with skill and sensitivity. We excel at negotiating and drafting detail-oriented parenting plans and separation agreements, and, when needed, skillfully litigate complex issues at trial.
We represent a wide range of clients in the southeastern Massachusetts area, including business executives in established and leading-edge companies, doctors, attorneys, accountants, entrepreneurs and other high net worth individuals.
Small Firm Attention, Large Firm Resources
The Plymouth office is one of five MFLG offices throughout the Commonwealth. Having multiple offices means that a client is not dependent on one attorney. Rather, he or she is served by a statewide team of divorce lawyers and experts. We work with financial specialists, real estate appraisers, child psychologists, child custody evaluators and many other experts, depending on the requirements of the case. We call this group of attorneys and experts our statewide brain trust. It allows us to offer our clients the personal attention and caring of a small law office, while providing them with the resources of a large firm.
Looking for a Home-Court Advantage?
The way our firm is organized has another advantage: Each office focuses on handling matters in nearby probate and family courts. This gives the lawyers in each office an understanding of procedures and preferences of judges and court personnel. We can anticipate how an individual judge may respond to a proposal or motion based on our lawyers' extensive experience in that judge's courtroom. Whether the issue is paternity, child custody, child support agreement or property division, we know what to do in order to get a client's divorce a fair hearing.
Do I Really Need an Attorney?
People ask, "Why should I hire a lawyer? I don't have kids and I don't own a house. Why should I spend the money?" We respond by reminding people that the courts in Massachusetts hold self-represented people to the same standards as attorneys. They require you to know the law. Mistakes can be very costly, and it will be difficult, if not impossible, to correct any errors you made. Don't take chances with your future — hire an attorney.
An Alternative to Do-It-Yourself Divorce
We understand that some people really do not have the resources to undertake a lengthy contested divorce. That's why we have a sister firm that offers flat-fee, uncontested divorce services. We make sure that your rights are protected and the paperwork is completed correctly. We give you the best of both worlds: An experienced divorce lawyer to ensure that everything is done correctly, and the speed and reduced cost of do-it-yourself divorce. There is hardly any risk, and the benefits are considerable.
