Emily Weber has more than a decade of experience in family law, handling divorces as well as post-divorce and paternity actions, contested custody and removal matters, and modification and contempt proceedings.
Among her clients are high net worth individuals whose cases involve complex financial issues, including business valuations and trusts. She advocates for clients experiencing high-conflict custody issues, including contested custody and removal actions and cases with Massachusetts Department of Children & Families and Guardian ad Litem involvement. Additionally, Emily is skilled at negotiating and drafting extensive separation agreements that include detailed parenting plans, complex asset division, and support structures involving stock options, startup companies, and tax considerations.
Emily’s clients typically have concerns about co-parenting, financial standing post-divorce, uncertainty regarding the process, and what their lives will look like after their divorce is complete. Emily works tirelessly to guide her clients through the divorce process, and advocates for the best possible outcome for them, their children, and their future.
