It is our mission to quickly help you review and understand all of your options whenever you call us and come in to meet with one of our lawyers. We are committed to making time for you the day you call if that is what you would like, as we recognize how hard it is to pick up the phone and call a lawyer. We chose this area of the law to practice, as it is our desire that we assist people confronting family law issues to reach fair settlements as quickly and cost effectively as possible. We hope to hear from you today!

Meeting and Resolving Family Law Problems for More Than 35 Years

Foley & MacAdie, P.C. is a full-service family law firm offering compassionate personal service, quality and experience. Our firm consists of smart, hard working and empathetic attorneys and support staff who care. Our team approach to the practice of law means that our clients receive access to the combined experience of all attorneys in a cost-effective manner, working with you as you believe is best for you to meet the challenges you face. To the extent a client wants to keep costs down by doing some of the necessary work, we welcome that involvement. We want all clients to be fully involved in the process and fully informed as to their options so that each client can make the best decisions for himself or herself.

Our lawyers represent people in domestic relations matters primarily in Suffolk, Middlesex, Norfolk, Essex and Worcester counties. We pride ourselves on offering the quality and experience found in Boston family law firms and do so while providing an easily accessible office in Acton.

We truly understand that divorce or other family law matters can be an “economic catastrophe” to quote a retired Probate and Family Court Judge.  At Foley & MacAdie, we want to offer you the best legal advice possible within your budget.

We offer Limited Assistance Representation (“LAR”) because we believe it is the best way to help certain clients achieve their goals. If you are comfortable representing yourself and need guidance and assistance in drafting documents and/or preparing for court, LAR may well be the best option for you. The cost is much less than full representation, as the law firm does not enter an appearance on your behalf in the divorce, but may enter a Special Appearance on your behalf for a specific part of the proceedings, for example, a Motion for Temporary Orders. LAR is a very cost-effective way for you to manage your participation in the proceedings. We look forward to having you as a LAR client and will give you all of your options for moving forward.

Guiding You Through the Process

At Foley & MacAdie, P.C. we understand how truly difficult it is to face family law problems. Whether it is a divorce, a paternity matter, an abusive relationship, a modification or any one of the many reasons people need representation, often there are feelings of being overwhelmed and being on an emotional roller coaster. We are here to help you look at all of your options and formulate the best plan for you and your family.

We believe that many clients benefit from other professionals, such as therapists, accountants and financial planners, being a part of the team to best meet the challenges. We encourage our clients to seek expert advice and counseling in these and other areas as well as to work together with others to give each client the best opportunity to end the conflict and go on to thrive. We will do everything possible to put your mind at ease by fully explaining all options to you so that you can decide what is best for you and your family in every aspect of your case.

What You Can Expect From Us

We provide compassionate, effective assistance to help you meet your family law challenges. We have decades of experience in Probate and Family Court, advocating for our clients with the goal of reaching a fair and equitable settlement.

We work with each client to instill a sense of empowerment and the confidence to believe that he or she can meet the problems each is facing and succeed. We give each client all of the information they need and want, as best we can, in order for each client to make truly well informed decision. We recognize that we are working for you and that it is our job to provide you with what you need so that you can thoughtfully review options and come to a good decision. We realize the importance of prompt personal responses when you contact us, as the issues you are facing are so very serious and, at times, frightening. We want every client to feel supported and educated.  We hope to be of service to you and promise to make the legal process as pleasant as possible!
