Boston Family Law Lawyers

Massachusetts Divorce Lawyers

At Gilman, McLaughlin & Hanrahan, LLP, our Boston family law attorneys have been helping clients pursue positive outcomes in family court since 1973. Whether you are going through a divorce or need assistance with any other family law matter, we can help.

Family law is a specialized area of law requiring specific training in negotiation, litigation, taxation, property and business valuation, and the rules and procedures of the Massachusetts family law court system. Our Boston family law attorneys have the experience to handle your case effectively.

Dividing Assets and Debts in Divorce

When you get divorced, all of your and your spouse's marital assets and debts will be allocated in accordance with Massachusetts' principle of equitable distribution. This process can be particularly complicated for people with substantial assets.

Drawn-out divorce conflicts are rarely in anybody's interest. Our attorneys have the experience to help you pursue a fair divorce settlement so you can move on with your life.

We are experienced at helping our clients obtain accurate values of marital assets and debts, divide interests in complex assets such as real property and family businesses, maximize tax benefits and address the impact of antenuptial agreements.
