Our ties to the Lakes Region
We live and serve in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Through ongoing service, volunteering, and pro bono work, we remain dedicated to the local community and its development. We always seek to understand our clients' concerns and objectives with a focus on delivering individualized, cost-effective, and creative solutions to meet their specific needs. The many strong and lasting relationships we have established are the result of the consistently fair, honest, and professional treatment we provide to clients and non-clients alike. Many of our clients consider us to be their "family lawyer." If you are unable to visit the office due to health or disability, we can accommodate visits to your home, a hospital, or other facility. If we cannot help you with your specific problem, we are always happy to provide referrals to other local lawyers who have expertise in the area of law you need.
