Family law attorney Laurel Barraco thrives on helping people with complex divorce and family law matters. Attorney Barraco has litigated complex divorce, custody and alimony matters in nearly every county in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  “I choose to practice family law because it includes so many different disciplines,” Attorney Barraco said. “We are dealing with domestic relations, restraining orders, housing issues, business law, tax law and sometimes even constitutional issues.”

Known for being efficient and effective, family lawyer Barraco helps clients look beyond the emotional aspect of their circumstance so they can focus on the pragmatic resolution of their divorce, division of property, child custody, child support or alimony case. “I think it makes things easier – and there are better results for the client and their children – when emotions are taken out of the equation so cooler heads can prevail,” she says.

As a breast cancer survivor, Attorney Barraco understands the importance of looking beyond the emotions of the moment when it comes to doing what’s best for the future.  In addition, she noted, “Having beaten cancer makes me completely unafraid of any situation that lies before me – cancer has given me the ability to fight harder for my clients.”

Laurel Barraco is a graduate of the New England School of Law and Northeastern University. Outside of work, she’s an avid runner and fitness enthusiast and New York Times crossword puzzler.
