  • Open During COVID-19

    My office is open during these unprecedented times. I am meeting with clients by phone, Facetime and Zoom. Although courts are not open for in- person public hearings, I have been having more and more hearings by phone-whether or not they are contested or uncontested. In addition, courts are proceeding and processing paperwork. My office is also trying to alleviate some of the COVID-19 related pain by contributing $50 for each new client to the Pan-Mass Challenge.

Alex was extremely knowledgeable about my case at hand. He was always there to answer any questions I had. He got us through a very difficult and stressful time with ease.Connie BergSeptember 30, 2021
I picked Alex using a Google search of local lawyers and I couldn’t have asked for more effective legal representation. He was always available to discuss my case and he is a person that truly listens to his clients, a rare quality today in any field. As it turned out, I won my case, but I would have felt the same about Alex if I had lost. He did an excellent job representing me and I would recommend others consider him when in need of legal representation.John MatthewsSeptember 8, 2021

Alex is the best family law attorney in Bristol County by far. He helped my family in a very difficult custody issue and went beyond my expectations in every way. He is professional, easy to speak with, responsive and very knowledgeable. I could not have asked for better representation in proceedings. I will always reccomend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you so much Alex!Nicole CantyJuly 22, 2021
Divorce is never easy but if you do find yourself going through the process, you want to have Alex as your representation. He is always available and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, especially when the situation sometimes feels overwhelming. Going into our court appearance I always felt that we were well prepared and ready to handle any issues that arose, which was always the case.Chris jMay 12, 2021
I had been fighting a case for about 3 years on my own. Hiring Alex was the best thing I could have done. He was in constant communication and took a lot of stress off my shoulders. Very professional. I couldn’t have asked for better results. Thank you so muchDamon GMay 7, 2021
I had tried representing myself in what I thought was going to be an easy modification. I came to Alex when it became clear that wouldn’t be the case. Alex is professional and responsive. He listened to everything that had happened and was willing to represent me. I was able to communicate with him even with a busy work schedule. He is straightforward and told me everything that was going on. I felt confident having him represent me and would have him represent me again. We were able to come to an agreement with the other party and I appreciated the level of professionalism from him and his staff. I would recommend him without hesitation.Shari DantMay 4, 2021
So happy to have Alex represent me. He was the calming force in an otherwise tense situation. Much appreciated was that he was ALWAYS very responsive to me emails or phone calls. While the other party did their best to muddy the waters and drag the process out, Alex never let that bother him. He negotiated a reasonable settlement and stayed the course when the other party demanded more later in the process. His calm demeanor really helped me get through the process. Thanks so much, Alex!Joel LaVineApril 16, 2021
