We take a holistic approach to our practice. When you work with us, you can expect a different type of first meeting.

We listen to you to understand your concerns.

Many attorney’s ask clients to prepare a packet full of files for their first consultation, including tax returns, financial statements, information on marital property and more. That is not our approach.

An initial consultation with our firm is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and to define the issues most important to you. We listen to you to understand your concerns. We provide the information and education you need to protect yourself and your loved ones, so you know what expect from the Massachusetts divorce process. We then establish a strategy and plan going forward that is efficient and cost-effective, tailored to your case.

When considering a way forward to dissolve your marriage we offer a wide range of services and approaches tailored to each individual case. This ranges from straight-forward negotiation, to mediation and arbitration as well as litigating through the courts. Litigation, which is the most expensive option, should always be the last resort especially if you and your ex-spouse expect to co-parent.
As a compassionate counsellor to our clients, we always feel it is best to minimize conflict and keep couples out of court. However, sometimes the issues can only be resolved through the family courts. In this case, John DiPiano Family Law Group will always be a tenacious advocate for our clients.

We also recognize there are many aspects of the Massachusetts divorce process that may require emotional support, financial planning, real estate & mortgage information, insurance considerations, and tax implications, among other things. We will ensure you have access to the support services you need.

We tailor our approach to each individual case.


Divorce Litigation

While some couples can resolve issues without going to court, others may need litigation to get a fair settlement. John DiPiano will always work towards reaching a settlement without going to court. If not, he will be your tenacious advocate.

Asset Division

Not all assets are split 50/50

During divorce proceedings, separating parties usually have combined assets of some variety, whether it is something as traditional as dividing investments, home or vehicles, or more complex assets like a business, debt, or insurance policies.

It is a common misconception that assets are split 50/50 during a divorce, so it is essential to have an experienced litigator who understands the complexities of asset division in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
