At the Studley Law Offices in Middleborough, we are effective trial advocates with nearly 40 years of combined legal experience. Our Massachusetts attorneys understand that thorough preparation not only benefits clients in court but often compels adversaries to improve their settlement terms. In family law and personal injury cases, as well as criminal defense, estate administration and business litigation matters, we will assert your rights effectively in any forum.

Dedicated trial attorneys work to achieve successful results

Areas of Practice

Thorough advocates also assist with business, estate and criminal defense matters

Our Massachusetts law firm handles a wide range of concerns relating to:

  • Family law — For all types of family law matters, we answer clients’ questions clearly. We assist Massachusetts residents with matrimonial and parenting issues, including custody and child support conflicts, such as when a divorced parent seeks to relocate and remove a child to another state. In cases where someone is looking to raise or protect a young person, we guide them through guardianships and adoptions.
  • Divorce — During a divorce, our firm advocates for clients in custody disputes, alimony determinations and property matters.  Our attorneys have extensive experience with high net worth divorces where we pursue an appropriate division of complex assets and advise clients on the effect of prenuptial agreements.
  • Personal injury — In personal injury cases, our litigators work to secure full damages for victims of negligence through a verdict or settlement. If you’ve been hurt in an auto accident and have questions about how to obtain justice, we can tell you what to do at every stage of the investigation and legal process. We also handle premises liability claims and other cases where injured parties are entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income and other items.
  • Wrongful death — Our firm advises surviving family members on wrongful death actions when someone dies due to someone else’s negligence or intentional act. This includes deaths caused by vehicle collisions, including truck and motorcycle crashes.
  • Criminal defense — Whether it is a felony or misdemeanor proceeding , our criminal defense advocates safeguard the fundamental rights of individuals accused of property offenses, violent crimes, drunk driving and other types of misconduct.
  • Estate planning and administration — We assist clients with a wide range of estate planning and administration tasks. Whether you require guidance on drafting a will, settling someone’s estate or litigating a probate dispute, our attorneys provide sound counsel.
  • Business litigation — Legal conflicts can threaten the revenue and daily operations of any commercial enterprise. When you need an effective business litigation attorney, we thoroughly review the relevant facts and outline the legal standards governing your situation.

Personalized advice and strong advocacy from a proven attorney can be the difference between a successful outcome and prolonged frustration. We have the skill and track record to protect your interests while providing the kind of counsel you can trust.
