Practice Areas


Family Law

Family law touches on the issues that are most important in life: your children and your finances.



Divorce is never an easy process. I am here to protect your interests at every stage of the journey.


Child Custody And Support

Few areas of family law are more important for parents than child custody, visitation and support.

Protecting Your Interests At The Time You Need It Most

Divorce can cause a great deal of stress in your life and the lives of your children. At a time like this, you can greatly benefit from advice and guidance from an attorney who understands the personal, financial and legal issues you are dealing with.

I am attorney Claudette-Jean Girard, a dedicated and compassionate family law attorney serving clients in Springfield, Amherst, Pittsfield, and communities throughout central and western Massachusetts. I have more than a decade of experience in family law and have faced some of its challenging issues in my own life. When you need someone who will take the time to understand your family and your needs, give me a call.
