Outstanding attorney and person I had the pleasure to work with Morgan for over a year. She is always provided on-time follow up to all questions with empathy and professionalism. She is sharp, collaborative when needed and doesn't get intimidated in the court room. Very knowledgeable about every aspect of family law and extremely fair in her billing. A+++

I practice divorce, family law and child welfare law in the greater Boston area. My goal is to assist both men and women in divorce, child custody and support proceedings and paternity, in addition to modifications that arise post judgement. I have extensive experience working with victims in court, particularly women and children who were physically or sexually abused. Most victims want an attorney who "just gets it," and it has been my experience than many do not "get it" nor do they feel comfortable representing or relating to clients with a domestic violence component to their case. Family law wears many faces: the joys of adoption and marriage and the roller coaster of divorce, custody and support battles. My clients will have the utmost empathy and compassion and the freedom to share their thoughts, fears and goals with me throughout the representation. I help families of all kinds (single, married, same-sex marriage, divorced, separated, etc.) draft wills, create living wills, and form trusts for their children, grandchildren or partners in the event of incapacitation or death. Trusts can also be created for college savings and other educational purposes; it is never too early to start planning for your child's future. Often, couples wait until divorce proceedings begin to draft wills, and a family law attorney has to recommend another lawyer. I am happy to assist clients in all matters of family and probate court. Though born and raised in the South, I attended undergrad at Hampshire College in Amherst and law school at Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, I call Massachusetts 'home.' I belong to the Boston Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association, Starting out Solo, Massachusetts Council on Family Law Mediation and the Academy of Professional Mediators. I volunteer for the Probate and Family Court as an Attorney Representing Children (ARC).
