My Go-To Resource for All Things Family Law: Massachusetts Practice Family Law and Practice with Forms

There is only one resource I keep at arm’s length, each and every day, in my family law practice. I am both excited and honored to announce that the West Publishing Company has just released the newest edition of my go-to resource for all things family law -- the four-volume Massachusetts Practice Series, Family Law and Practice books, by Charles P. Kindgregan Jr., Maureen McBrien, Esq. and Patricia A. Kindgregan, Esq.

The new edition continues its legacy as the best guide to family law practice in Massachusetts. As a young attorney, I have ample reason to seek guidance from this exemplary resource. No matter the topic, I am never left desiring more from this series.

The fourth edition provides updates in every section and includes new chapters that explore forward-looking topics, such as electronic discovery, electronic evidence, alternative dispute resolution, social media, health insurance, parenting coordinators and the new alimony laws.

The fourth edition also continues to provide a well-organized, user-friendly experience. The books, and the accompanying CD-ROM, provide essential forms for practice in Massachusetts.

I have no doubt my go-to resource for all things family law can provide judges and lawyers, with any level of experience, with a reliable source of information pertaining to family law. The time needed to research an issue is dramatically decreased with these books, and there is no need to question of the books’ reliability.

Suffice to say, I cannot recommend these books enough.
