Professional Approach

Helping Parents Protect the People They Love the Most

David and his wife, Paula, founded The Parents Estate Planning Law Firm, PC, with a mission to educate parents, so that the children they love would always be protected if the unthinkable were to happen. David’s practice focuses on estate planning, wealth transfer, and asset protection.  As one of only a handful of Personal Family Lawyers® in Massachusetts, David develops lifelong relationships with his clients, serving as a trusted advisor to them and to generations of their families.  He guides his clients as they preserve and protect their assets, loved ones and legacies, including what matters most to them and makes them who they are- their intellectual, spiritual, and human assets.

Dedicated to helping families make the very best legal decisions, David has been practicing law in Massachusetts since 1990.  He received his law degree from Suffolk University in Boston, MA and a B.B.A. in Management from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  Following law school, David worked for eight years as an attorney with a well-respected litigation firm in Boston.  In 1998, seeking ways to create lasting relationships with his clients and more time with his own family, David started his own law practice with his wife, Paula, who is its marketing and client services director.  In addition to his work as a Personal Family Lawyer®, David is active in local business and community organizations.  He has served on the Board of Directors of the Middlesex West Chamber of Commerce, Congregation Beth Elohim, and The Infant, Toddler, Children’s Center in Acton, MA.  David frequently speaks on family, wealth and estate planning topics to schools and community groups.

Most importantly, David is a husband and a dad.  He and Paula are the proud parents of two daughters, Hannah and Sadie.  Because David has planned for and protected his own family, he can offer his unique insight and perspective to his clients as they do the same for theirs.
