An attorney may not be the first person you think of when facing the possibility of a divorce, separation, paternity, or child custody issue. But once you realize some matters require involvement with the courts, your next decision is: which lawyer will most vigorously represent your legal rights, helping you attain what's in the best interest for you, or your children.

Attorney Philomena A. Barboza has been practicing Family Law for over 2 decades.  Her twenty-two years in Family Law is not just experience with Divorces, Legal Separations, Child Custody & support cases,  it also includes Guardianships, Special Education Law and establishing Special Needs Trusts. She has handled cases in various courts across Massachusetts during that time, and helped many clients and their children, along the way.

As a parent of twins, born with disabilities, she became involved with special education issues through the need to stand-up for rights to services and programs, on behalf of her own children.
