Private Client

A Closer Look. A Better Perspective.

The Private Client Group at Burns & Levinson consists of more than 25 accomplished attorneys and other related professionals dedicated to providing individual clients with complete personal legal services at their most vulnerable, critical and difficult times of life.

Our Private Client Group also has the ability to draw upon the expertise of the other areas of the firm, including our business-related practices. Few full-service law firms are able to support their clients so comprehensively. Additionally, through our subsidiaries we are able to assist with the management of our clients’ assets in order to meet their personal goals.

Our counsel and representation of private clients encompasses services in:

Divorce & Family

Probate & Trust Litigation

Trusts & Estates


Family Advisory Services Team

Gay & Lesbian Client Services

Burns & Levinson Asset Management

The Private Client Group

The Private Client Group attorneys advise and represent individuals at those points in life where personal matters and relationships require sensitive and strategic legal counsel. For many, these private issues are complicated by business ownerships, earned or inherited wealth and diverse asset management obligations. Our clients find security and peace of mind in the blended legal acumen and thoughtfulness with which our attorneys achieve their goals.
