Why My Clients Choose Me

There are more than 67,000 lawyers in this state so how do you know which one is right for you?

Some people think a young lawyer will be current on changes in the law. Some people prefer an older family law attorney because they believe he or she will understand how the law plays out in the real world.

Clients choose our office because they feel confident that we have both a deep understanding of the law, as well as being current on all changes. For many years, Attorney Driscoll has been one of the top ten lawyers in Massachusetts, in terms of participation in continuing legal education. If a law has changed, I know about it. And because of my decades of courtroom experience, I also know why.


My Areas of Practice

Family Law: The primary focus of our legal practice is in the area of family law, which includes divorce, the financial aspects of support and property division, and child custody.

We can help you with the modification of existing court orders, with enforcement of child support, and with contempt proceedings when court orders have not been followed.

We also represent parties bringing or defending against restraining orders when there has been family conflict.

Estate Planning: Whether you need a simple Will or are looking for a way to protect your assets while also qualifying for Medicaid assistance with nursing home care, we can assist you.

Other Areas of Law

It's not surprising that when a client has been satisfied with our legal help with a divorce or estate plan that they have preferred to hire us to work with us on their other legal issues. Our background in the law is diverse. We can also assist you with:

  • Defense against DUI charges, restraining orders and other criminal matters

"I spoke with Wilfred Driscoll twice on the phone regarding my divorce before I hire him. The second phone call was amazing. He remembered all the details of my case and the special circumstances that I am in. He had actually thought about my case since we talked and had additional insight which I found very useful. He is a very good attorney and helped us at a difficult and stressful time."
