  • 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.

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

This was the first time I ever needed a lawyer and Alex was great to work with. He made the process simple and easy for me, all I had to do is get the paperwork required and he took care of everything else.
If I need to use a lawyer in the future I will be using Alex again.

Alex made a challenging situation less difficult. He presents info as “expect
The worst and hope for the best”,which I like…none of us need to hear rainbows and unicorns. He was timely, honest, hardworking and respectful. He would be the first guy I would recommend to any family member or friend in need. He helped me get the best results possible.

Working with Alex (and his Secretary, Suzanne) was practically effortless even though I am many miles away in Florida and all our communication was by phone or email. He was responsive, informative, honest and ultimately – achieved the result I was hoping for. I highly recommend him and won’t hesitate to engage him again. Thanks, Alex!Dennis AmaralJanuary 22, 2021
This was the first time I needed a lawyer and Alex was so great! He help me go through the process, gave me awesome legal advise and was kind throughout the whole experience. The greatest thing is that Alex truly listens to you as a client and even if it goes against his advise, he always told me that whatever I decide and how to proceed, that he would work with me and do the best for me. Thank you Alex. Highly recommend!Brian RebeloJanuary 22, 2021
I would highly recommend Alex! He was very easy to work with and listened to every concern we had and answered every question we had. He helped us come to an agreement with the other party which was completely impossible to do without an attorney. 10/10 recommendation!Justine DemoranvilleJanuary 7, 2021
