Child Custody For Nonmarried Parents

Child Custody For Unmarried Parents In Wellesley, Massachusetts

Child custody matters are some of the most emotionally charged and highly argued aspects of family law. This is especially the case when the parents of the child or children have never been married. Each parent may be demanding custody of the children, resulting in the courts having to make a decision that is in the best interests of the children.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
