Welcome to the
Law Office of William M. Driscoll
There is a large amount of generalized information provided on this web site. Because the facts of every case are different, the law applied and how it applies may differ from case to case. Call me for a free telephone consultation.
Massachusetts Appeals Attorney
I represent clients throughout the state who seek to litigate in the MA Appeals Court or the Supreme Judicial Court (MA SJC).
The work of an appeals lawyer must be exacting, timely, and conform to the rules particular to the appellate court. Call me for a free telephone consultation to discuss your interlocutory appeal, single justice petition, or appellate review of a final decision.
Massachusetts Divorce and Family Law Trial Lawyer
I represent clients in several counties across the state who seek to resolve a divorce or family law matter.
I provide the legal knowledge of an appellate attorney along with experienced divorce and family law advice. I prepare each case for trial so as to obtain the client's best negotiation position; court statistics reveal that about 98% of all divorce and family law cases are resolved by negotiation at or before trial.
Massachusetts Social Security Disability Appeals Lawyer
I represent clients throughout the state who seek to obtain child or adult Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI and SSI).
As a social security disability appeals attorney I do not earn a legal fee unless you are awarded benefits--my legal fee is paid out of your back benefits at an amount fixed by law. Do not be discouraged by an initial denial. Most applicants face social security appeals before they are ultimately awarded Social Security Disability benefits!
