Auto Accident / Personal Injury Law
Personal injury law is a broad area that attempts to protect the rights of an individual who was injured as the result of another's negligence. Personal injury claims can include a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, boat accident, bus accident, aviation accident, helicopter accident, dog bites, slip and falls, dangerous premises accidents, construction accidents, medical negligence, and toxic tort cases.

Probate Law covers a wide range of issues, many of which overlap with Family Law Issues. Those issues include:
Guardianship of Minor Children
Guardianship of incapacitated Adults
Health Care Proxies
No matter what the issue, your selection of a qualified and experienced attorney is essential to your success. I would tailor my approach to your individual problem.
Wills and Estates
In writing your will, I will help you consider your goals and what legal tools are available to ensure that your wishes are followed.
Estate planning can be simple or complex. It includes simple wills and trusts—it also includes communicating your desires about medical care should you become incapacitated and unable to direct your own medical care. It tells your family what you would like them to do if you are facing end-of-life decisions, and afterward.
If you have children, it is extremely important that you consider who will care for your children if you are unable to do so, and to consider how they will be supported financially.
I work closely with families and individuals to draft documents that express your wishes and help you achieve your goals. If you want to minimize estate taxes, I can help with trusts. If you want to tell your family how to make medical decisions, we will discuss health care proxies and powers of attorney.
If you have a family member who died without a will in Eastern Massachusetts, I work with local and out-of-state families to probate area estates.are here to serve you.
Negligence due to medical malpractice can occur in any environment where you receive treatment, and can include cases against doctors, nurses, or other health care providers. Examples of cases involving medical negligence include:
· Failure to Diagnose
· Surgical Malpractice
· Birth Defects
· Brain Damage
· Birth Injuries
· Medication Errors
· Paramedic and EMT Negligence
It is essential to get your medical and hospital records as soon as you suspect there may have been a medical error in your treatment. Medical records are vital evidence in medical malpractice cases.
If you feel you have a medical malpractice case, you should act immediately to protect your rights, as Massachusetts has strict statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases.
