Partner Attorney – Domestic Relations & Probate Litigation

We have an opening for a Partner Level Attorney in our Domestic Relations & Probate Litigation practice. The members of the practice represent clients in all aspects of the divorce process, child custody cases, estate litigation, and other probate and family law matters. This often requires frequent Court appearances. The team also works collaboratively with members of other practice areas within the firm to ensure clients receive the most comprehensive and thorough support possible.

The successful candidate must have a portable book of business and a strong desire to grow and develop their practice over time. The individual must have extensive experience in the various areas of family law including but not limited to divorce, child custody matters, guardianships and conservatorships, adoptions, division of assets, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, spousal and child support, restraining orders, and probate issues. The individual must also possess courtroom experience in the Probate and Family Court.

Bowditch prioritizes entrepreneurship and collaboration amongst our lawyers and professional staff and actively supports our lawyers’ efforts to grow strong and robust practices.
