A Boutique Law Firm With An Undivided Focus On Family

The Law Offices of Sheara F. Friend offers a different experience from a large firm. We are small by design, and we focus only on family law. We believe in getting to know every client personally and in finding amicable solutions whenever possible. We also believe in the aggressive and fearless pursuit of your rights when the other party refuses to be reasonable.

When you work with our firm, you get more than a lawyer — you get experience. Attorney Friend has devoted over 30 years to the practice of family law. Our attorneys have built their careers within the Massachusetts Probate and Family Courts, including Middlesex, Norfolk, Essex, Suffolk, Plymouth, Worcester, Bristol and Barnstable counties. We draw on the wealth of knowledge we have gained over time to offer our clients the perspective they need to make good decisions at every stage of a case.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody and Child Support
  • Domestic Violence & Neglect
  • Post-Judgment Modifications, Contempts and Appeals
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Call today at 978-464-9001 to arrange your free initial consultation.
