Attorney Wilfred C. Driscoll, Jr., Senior Attorney

After 25 years as a senior partner in one of the largest law firms in Bristol County, Massachusetts, I opened my own solo law practice in 2002. What sets my firm apart, and why so many of my clients refer friends and family to me when they have a legal problem, is superior service. I am highly accessible to my clients. I give every client my cell phone number. They can call 24/7. If I can't immediately take a call, I call back within 24 hours.

I also give my clients the time and attention they need. This is often their first interaction with the law and the court system. I understand that it can be confusing and even frustrating. I make sure my clients understand the process and what is happening with their case. My clients want a lawyer who listens to them and that's what I do.

Throughout my long career, I have gained extensive trial court experience in both civil and criminal matters. I have a reputation for being prepared, focused and effective in court.

  • I am a Commissioner to Qualify Public Officers.
  • I have been a designated Court Master, judging cases in Massachusetts Probate Court, and have served as a Guardian ad Litem.
  • I have been Qualified as an Expert Witness in real estate and fee testimony areas of law, and can testify on such matters in Massachusetts Superior, District and Probate Courts.
  • I am a certified and experienced divorce mediator in Massachusetts.
  • I have served as legal counsel to the Retirement Board of Fall River, the Community Development Service Center, and other entities.
  • I have been extensively involved in Juvenile Court litigation in cases involving Care & Protection (C&P) and Children In Need of Services (CHINS) matters.
