More than 15 years of family and juvenile law experience.
Allison focuses her practice on all areas of matrimonial, family and juvenile law. She regularly works with clients in divorce, custody, support, modification and contempt proceedings, and also has experience working with clients in adoption, guardianship of minors and grandparent visitation cases. She has significant experience representing clients who are involved with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF), clients with substance abuse issues and families with adolescents who are in crisis.
With more than fifteen years in private practice, Allison is well-versed in working with clients who wish to resolve their matters amicably, including through mediation. Basing her practice in Hingham is a bit of a homecoming for Allison, who grew up in South Weymouth and graduated from Notre Dame Academy in Hingham. Allison lives on the South Shore and, when she is not practicing law, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two step-children, their dog and two cats. She is also actively involved in the community as a member of the Board Nominating and Development Committee of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, and as a sustaining member of The Junior League of Boston.

Allison is presently enrolled in a certificate program focusing on substance abuse prevention and counseling through the University of Cincinnati.
Allison has lectured on family law issues for MCLE and the Boston Bar Association (BBA). She presently sits on the Family Law Section Committee of the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) and previously sat on that organization’s Juvenile and Child Welfare Committee.
