Massachusetts Divorce Attorney

Kevin brings a wealth of experience – about 17 years in fact –  to Next Phase Legal & Dispute Resolution LLC, where he focuses on the firm’s contested (court-based) matters. Before joining NPL, Kevin maintained a successful domestic relations law practice in Walpole, Massachusetts. 

Kevin is a skilled advocate and works closely with clients on contested divorce, custody, and child support cases, but his legal knowledge also extends to restraining orders and adoption cases.  He appears frequently in the probate and family courts throughout Massachusetts, where he is known as an tenacious litigator who does not shy away from difficult cases.

In addition to working diligently to help clients reach their goals, Kevin participates in the pro-bono “Lawyer for a Day” program at the Norfolk County Probate and Family court and volunteers in the ARC program representing children in Bristol County. As a volunteer attorney, he provides legal advice to individuals and families who are in court without their own representation. Kevin has a history of community service and has been a hotline crisis counselor at the Samaritan’s volunteer center.

Before law school,  Kevin worked in publishing as an indexer for Macmillan in Indianapolis. He left Macmillan – and his Colts season tickets – to move to Boston, where he founded his own indexing company that specialized in computer guides and professional texts.  Due to extreme excitement involved in this profession, Kevin decided it was time for a change and decided that his attention to detail and writing skills would translate well to a career in the law.

At Suffolk University Law School, Kevin received the Jurisprudence Award in Fiduciary Relations, was awarded Honors for his performance at the Juvenile Justice Clinic, and was selected to aide Public Administrator for the Commonwealth, Professor Charles Rounds, Jr.  Kevin’s interest in family law stems from the time he spent working with underprivileged and disadvantaged youth. He interned at the Youth Advocacy Project in Roxbury and also served as a student public defender in the Boston Juvenile Court.

Outside of the office, Kevin enjoys spending time with his three children and two French Bulldogs, Franny and Moe.  During the summer, he can often be found on his father’s commercial fishing boat in the waters off Montauk, Long Island, contemplating early retirement.
