In addition to being a busy practicing partner here at Burns & Levinson, I’ve been the chair of the Divorce & Family group and co-chair of the Private Client group since 1989. I’ve had the privilege of assisting more people than I can count through some of the most challenging times in their lives. It’s been rewarding, fun and occasionally crazy. The legal world has changed so much, staying up to date with new laws, technologies and ways to communicate continues to be exciting.
I’m thrilled to announce that my very able partner, Robin Lynch Nardone, has agreed to replace me as chair! Robin and I have worked together for 20 years and I know she’ll do a terrific job. Not to worry though, I’m not retiring! This will just give me more time for focusing on my clients, writing these blog posts and my one true love – spending more time with my animals. My horse, Noah, is a big proponent of this decision.
Robin focuses her practice on family law litigation and mediation, including high net worth divorce, high conflict custody and parenting disputes, same-sex marriage and divorce issues, paternity actions, removal cases, child support and alimony actions, as well as adoption. She has been a valued contributor to the Divorce Law Monitor since all the way back to its creation in 2009! You may have read some of her recent posts:
- Misinterpreting the Law Doesn’t Negate an Alimony Agreement
- More Alimony Reform in Massachusetts?
- Is It Illegal to Spank Your Stepchild?
I wish Robin all the very best for this exciting new chapter. Great things are happening at Burns & Levinson!
