Allison focuses her practice on all areas of matrimonial and family law. She regularly represents clients in divorce, custody, support, modification and contempt proceedings, and also has experience representing 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).
With more than ten years in private practice, Allison is well-versed in working with clients who wish to resolve their matters amicably, including through mediation. However, she does not hesitate to go to court when necessary, and regularly appears in the various Probate and Family Courts throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Prior to starting her own practice, Allison worked at several boutique family law firms in Boston and the surrounding suburbs including Tracey & Associates, P.C. in Boston, Ginsburg, Leshin, Gibbs & Jones, LLP in Wellesley, and Brick, Sugarman, Jones & McBrien, LLP in Newton. Before entering private practice, Allison worked as a judicial law clerk for the justices of the Massachusetts Juvenile Court for two years.
Opening her office in Hingham is a bit of a homecoming for Allison, who grew up in South Weymouth and graduated from Notre Dame Academy in Hingham. She completed her undergraduate studies at The College of William and Mary in 2001 before graduating magna cum laude from Syracuse University College of Law in 2004.
Allison has lectured on family law issues for MCLE and volunteers in the Lawyer-of-the-Day programs at the Norfolk and Middlesex Probate and Family Courts. She is certified to take Limited Assistance Representation cases in the Massachusetts Probate and Family Courts. When she is not practicing law, Allison is an active member of The Junior League of Boston and sits on the Juvenile and Child Welfare Committee of the Massachusetts Bar Association.
