Bristol and Plymouth County Family Attorneys

Middleborough family lawyers putting children first

The Studley Law Offices understands that your children are the center of your life. We make your children’s best interests a focal point of our practice as well. With our 38 years of combined experience, we can represent you in all your family law issues, including:

  • Guardianships — Our Plymouth family lawyers represent guardians appointed by the courts. We can also assist you in petitioning the court for temporary or permanent guardianship if the child’s parents have died, cannot care for their children because of illness or injury, or were determined unfit by the court.
  • Adoptions — We advise you about the rigorous and exciting process of adopting your child. Our step-by-step guidance helps you avoid problems and delays so that you can concentrate on the most important issue — welcoming your new family member.
  • Custody disputes — Our family lawyers protect your parental rights during custody disputes. We may resolve your issues through mediation, but are prepared to battle the other parent in the courtroom if it is in your and your child’s best interests.
  • Divorce matters — Our team helps you through every aspect of divorce — including child custody, child support, alimony, property division, high-net-worth divorces and the valuation of businesses and professional practices.

Dedicated to children and families

The Studley Law Offices is dedicated to children’s well-being during contentious guardianship, adoption and custody cases. Our family lawyer, John E. Studley Jr., regularly serves as a guardian ad litem, representing the best interests of children caught in the middle of their parents’ disputes. The courts have appointed John as a guardian ad litem in more than 40 high-conflict custody, guardianship and estate cases. John has also taught other custody attorneys — including as a panelist at the Probate and Family Court Department Substance Abuse Training Workshop and as an instructor of continuing legal education courses about Massachusetts child custody issues.
