Helping with legal matters that matter most to you

Through our personal experience and business/professional background, we are able to bring a perspective to your needs that not every lawyer can. Clients throughout Middlesex and Essex County and surrounding areas have turned to us for help with:

  • Family law: Divorce is more than just the end of your marriage, it’s the financial decisions, the disposition of your home and its contents, and of course, it’s about your children. We guide you through all the processes, including child custody and support, alimony, and division of debts and assets.
  • Education law: We work with parents and students in areas that include bullying, Title VI issues, services and benefits discrimination, disciplinary issues and other matters that affect your child’s education.
  • Special education law: Few lawyers have the background or personal experience in this area as does attorney Richard Kelley. Count on us to provide the highest level of representation in areas such as Child Find, Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), 504 plans and the range of opportunities to which your child is entitled.
  • Special Needs Trust Planning: We create a plan that ensures your child continues to receive critical government benefits, such as Medicaid and Social Security disability benefits (SSDI), when they receive an inheritance.
  • Estate planning: You don’t have to be rich to need an estate plan. Protect your family, your assets, and your privacy while minimizing taxes. We will help draft an estate plan that meets your needs today and your beneficiaries’ needs tomorrow.
  • Employment law: The average person spends 90,000 hours of their life at work. We deserve to have a workplace that is safe, free from harassment and discrimination, to get paid fairly and accurately, and to be free from fear of retaliation. We will vigorously represent you in legitimate employment legal issues.
  • Landlord/tenant law: Landlords and tenants alike have rights and responsibilities in regards to rental properties. We are here to represent either party when legal issues arise.
