Going through a Massachusetts divorce can be one of the most challenging and stressful times in your life. You have to make major decisions at a very difficult time; decisions that will have a lasting effect. Add to that the cost of hiring an attorney and it can seem overwhelming.  That’s where we come in. Our mission is to provide experienced legal help you can afford. Everyone should have an advocate in the courtroom when going through this process. We’ll work with you and guide you on your journey. There’s a better life waiting for you, let’s get you there.

How Does It Work?

When setting our fees, we use a sliding-scale based on your income; so the less you earn, the less you pay. As an experienced divorce attorney, I understand that navigating the legal process during such a challenging time can be overwhelming and expensive. That’s why we’re here to provide you with valuable insights and expert guidance to make the process smoother and more cost-effective. From getting temporary orders to the final judgment we’ll be at your side guiding you all along the way.

How Much Will it Cost?

In our traditional divorce representation, you hire us as your attorneys to represent you throughout the process. We’re dedicated to providing high-quality representation at an affordable price. While the average Massachusetts divorce charges $300 per hour, we charge half of that if you qualify financially. If you make less than $65,000 per year we’ll represent you for only $150 per hour. You’ll also pay less of a retainer than at other firms. Our mission is to provide you with experienced legal help you can afford. 

Legal Coaching

Even with our lower rates, some people still can’t afford to hire us in the traditional manner. We’re very aware that they still need experienced legal guidance. If you’re in this category, we offer our legal coaching service. In this case you represent yourself in court. We work with you in the background to provide guidance and advice. We’ll help you throughout the process by showing you what documents you need to file, how to fill them out and we’ll prepare you for all your court appearances. We’re here to answer all of your questions and make sure you’re fully informed.

How Much Will it Cost?

Our legal coaching only costs $150 per month. That’s it. There are no additional fees. You can cancel anytime. We just want you to have the benefit of our years of experience as you go through this difficult time.

Assessing Your Divorce Case

Each divorce case is unique, and it’s essential to assess your situation carefully. Before proceeding, consider whether you and your spouse are willing to work together amicably. If so, an uncontested divorce might be the best choice. This type of divorce allows you and your spouse to reach a complete agreement on important matters, such as child custody, child support, property division, and alimony. By avoiding lengthy court battles, you can significantly reduce legal fees and stress.

Seeking Expert Legal Advice

When it comes to a divorce case, investing in expert legal advice is vital. An experienced divorce attorney can provide valuable insights and guidance throughout the process, ensuring your rights are protected and that you make informed decisions. As an attorney with years of experience in family law, I understand the complexities of divorce cases and am committed to finding the most cost-effective solutions for you.

Uncontested Divorce: A Faster and Cheaper Alternative

An uncontested divorce can be a faster and cheaper alternative to traditional divorce litigation. If both parties are willing to work together, you can avoid costly court proceedings and save valuable time and money. Our team of skilled uncontested divorce lawyers will help you draft a complete agreement that addresses all necessary divorce terms, ensuring a smooth and efficient process.

Minimizing Stress

Divorce can be an emotionally taxing experience, and I’m here to support you through every step. By working closely together, we can minimize stress and reduce costs. Open communication is key, and I encourage you to share your concerns and questions so that we can address them efficiently. I am dedicated to providing you with the support you need during this difficult time, all while keeping costs in check.

Child Custody and Support

Child custody and support issues can be complex and emotionally charged. Together, we’ll advocate for the best interests of your child while striving for an agreement that works for both parties. With years of experience in family law, I understand the intricacies of child support calculations and will work diligently to ensure a fair outcome that considers your child’s well-being and your financial situation.

Exploring Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and collaborative divorce, can offer a more affordable and less adversarial approach to divorce. Mediation involves a neutral third-party mediator who facilitates discussions and helps you and your spouse reach a mutually acceptable agreement. Collaborative divorce involves working with your spouse and their attorney to find solutions outside of court. Both options can lead to significant cost savings and a more amicable resolution.

Empowering You with Knowledge

We believe in empowering our clients with knowledge. By understanding the legal process and your rights, you can make informed decisions and actively participate in your case. You will be provided with all the information you need to navigate your divorce confidently. From explaining divorce papers and legal documents to discussing potential outcomes, we will be your reliable guide throughout the process.


Achieving an affordable Massachusetts divorce is possible with the right legal guidance and approach. By considering an uncontested divorce, seeking expert legal advice, exploring alternative dispute resolution, and staying informed throughout the process, you can navigate this challenging time with confidence. As your divorce attorney, we’re committed to providing you with cost-effective solutions and ensuring your rights are protected. Let’s work together to secure an affordable and positive outcome for your divorce.
