"I strive to provide my clients with the best legal advice by giving them a level of time and personal attention that larger firms can't typically offer."
Hi, I'm Charles Maguire.
I've been practicing law in southeastern Massachusetts for more than 30 years. I am the only lawyer in the office, which means that your case will not be handed off to anyone else; I will be with you every step of the process.
I pride myself on maintaining a small practice, built on trust and respect, where relationships matter.
Legal matters can be confusing and complex, especially during times of personal crisis. I find that clients are generally concerned with obtaining favorable results, while keeping legal expenses as low as possible. For this reason, I do my best to avoid unnecessary and costly litigation and to keep my clients informed throughout the process. As my client, all final decisions lie with you, and I aim to put you in the best, most educated position to make the right legal choices for yourself and your family. This often means helping you understand the benefits of a particular strategy, versus the costs involved.
Before opening my own office in 1995, I worked at a private firm in Boston, primarily handling residential real estate law. I also served as a staff attorney for the Massachusetts Labor Relations Commission, investigating and adjudicating collective bargaining matters throughout the state. In 1985, I moved to southeastern Massachusetts with my family and began working at a small firm in Attleboro, where I represented various municipalities, school committees and other public entities. I also developed an emphasis on divorce and family law, which remains a primary area of focus for me today.
I attended New England College and graduated Cum Laude from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, MA. Throughout my career, I have argued cases before the Massachusetts Appeals Court and the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts and have been appointed guardian ad litem by several judges to help protect the interests of children unable to advocate for themselves.
