Cases We Handle


We have handled all kinds of divorce cases, from complicated matters with high-value marital estates, complex business valuation issues, and high-conflict child custody disagreements, to simple uncontested divorces.

We represent our clients through all aspects of divorce in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, including child custody, child support, alimony, paternity, restraining orders, domestic violence, and equity matters.

Child Custody & Support

The Court will determine the appropriate living arrangement for the minor child by using what is in “the best interests of the child” standard. Let my office design a custody arrangement that both parties are happy with. We will develop a game plan to help you get all of your ducks in a row to demonstrate to the Judge that your child would benefit by being in your care and custody.

Child Visitation Disputes

Visitation, also called custodial time sharing, is a plan for how parents will share time with their children. In Rhode Island, either parent may have custody or parents may share custody of their children. In the event that sole custody is awarded to one parent, the non-custodial parent can work out a visitation agreement in order to ensure that he or she can still maintain their relationship with their child and be involved in his or her life.

Auto & Motorcycle Accidents

After an accident, your injuries may preclude you from going back to work or getting a new job, and you may be watching medical bills pile up.

As a Rhode Island auto accident lawyer, I represent RI and MA clients who suffer broken bones, soft tissue damage, burns, brain injuries and more. If you’ve been a victim of someone’s negligence on the road, you deserve an auto accident lawyer who puts your needs first.

Pre-marital Agreements

Nothing can kill romance faster than the word prenup. But with about one in three of all first marriages ending in divorce, and 50 percent of second or third ones hitting the skids, a prenup is smart financial planning.

Simple Wills

If you die without an accurate and certified will, state law will decide what happens to your estate and who will inherit it after your death. The best way to avoid this is to prepare a simple will to express your wishes.

Working with Brenda was so effortless. I always felt extremely taken care of and supported to the fullest. She is amazingly prompt at getting back to you and is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to law. You will be in great hands!
