Tom and his staff helped me more than I could have ever asked for!

From beginning to end, Tom as well as Brandi and Maria were there to help in any way they could. I could not recommend a better family lawyer. They always got back to me quickly, and always made me feel reassured that I was in good hands. Tom is a wizard, and knows the Massachusetts legal system in and out. He has been doing his job for a long time, and was realistic about every possible outcome and what was most important to me. If you need someone to truly fight for you and your family rights, please call Tom. I am so lucky to have found him due to all of his good reviews, listen to them! I hope this helps others make the right choice. Thanks again to everyone at Taranto Law!

Excellent Attorney!

I have been working with Tom from beginning to end of my divorce for a total of well over four years. Tom represented me with 100% success through numerous motions, two trials and one appeal. I could write a book about it, but I will keep this short. If I could summarize my thoughts in one sentence I’d say you do not want to be on the other end of the table with Tom. I was very fortunate to choose Tom as my attorney, and he did a great job. Tom never lost focus throughout this long period, and he treated every step of it with the urgency it deserved. I learned throughout this period (from my case and from spending so much time in court) that for an attorney to be successful it is not sufficient for him/her to just be knowledgeable of the law. A successful attorney needs to have experience, credibility and be respected with, and by, court officials. A good attorney needs to understand what Judges value the most and how to communicate the essence of the problem appropriately. Tom possesses all those attributes. Tom has the ability to take ownership of your case as a professional, but act on it as if you are his family member for whom he needs to fight tooth and nail.

Tom’s intensity was the same at the end as it was at the beginning of the 4+ years. Everything got done on time. Every single phone call of mine got answered. And even though this was an extremely stressful period, I had peace of mind because I knew I was in good hands. Personally, I can’t thank him enough, and I hope this review will help others make the same good decision I made in going with Tom.

Set your expectations very high – for that is what you shall get.

Knowledgeable of not only the intricacies of divorce law but also of the prevailing tendencies of each of the judges. That is what sets Tom apart. That combined with his thorough attention to every detail, ability to answer any and all questions about our case, ability to speculate on what-if scenarios, and his exemplary responsiveness through the process manifested itself into exactly what you want. A FAIR AND PREDICTABLE OUTCOME WITH NO SURPRISES. Our court appearances before the judge were never ones of worry for me, but more the simple ratification of the outcomes which Attorney Taranto said would happen in prior discussion. This type of post-court exultation is only possible when your attorney knows the statutes, knows the players, and knows what is what is reasonable, possible, and likely. Never did I fear what a judge might say on court day. We did finally settle our case, and in doing so I was very impressed by Tom taking the time to highlight the plethora of details in the document language which were overlooked that worked in our favor. I learned a lot about the process through this ordeal. Let me say this, my case was settled and was done so predominantly within the bounds of what Tom had laid out for me in my first hour of speaking with him. That was no small task considering the ever moving goal-post and overreaching tendencies of the opposition, which we thwarted. If you are in need of an excellent divorce lawyer, I recommend and implore you to take the time to meet with Tom for an initial consultation. You will walk away knowing not only what to expect in terms of how your particular case will likely play out, but what you can expect from Tom as your attorney….. a lot. I recommend him without hesitation, but don’t take my word for it, go meet with him and convince yourself.


Simply, the best!

I hired Tom to handle my divorce case from the start. I knew I would be leaving for Afghanistan and did not pursue custody at that time, however, it became clear that was the road we were going to have to go down. Even from Afghanistan, Tom communicated clearly with me, helped me understand each and every step of the process. I worked closely with Tom for over three years. He was patient and understanding, even when my patience and understanding were at an end. His honesty, hard work, knowledge of the law and his keen courtroom skills enabled me to have full custody of my children. My family and I will be forever thankful.


Sharp and knowledgeable attorney that delivers positive results for his clients.

Thomas represented me in my divorce settlement and was very impressive in his knowledge of the Mass divorce laws, negotiation and strategic skills. Thomas was nothing short of a true professional. He handled extreme adversity. He ran into my case calmly and professionally. He was responsive to my questions, gave sound advice, was very fair with legal fees and helped me come to a successful outcome. He shows compassion, dedication and is completely ethical in his work. I would highly recommend Thomas Taranto as an attorney.


Great lawyer! Extremely smart, cares so much about clients.

I wasted $15k on other lawyers before I worked with Tom. He is a great advocate!


Excellent Attorney! Extremely professional and knowledgeable.

I consulted with Mr. Taranto about child support, custody, and visitation. He was extremely competent, professional and knowledgeable, and I felt very comfortable knowing he’s been through divorce and custody with his own children.

I had met with another attorney a few days before, but he lacked Mr. Taranto’s firmness and empathy. I’d highly recommend him.


I was really lucky to end up with Tom.

Long story short, I was in a time crunch to find an attorney. I am in TX and divorce was happening in MA. Tom was extremely helpful and made me feel much better after our first consultation. Now, almost a year later, I have nothing but praise for attorney Taranto. He was very competent and experienced. He was respectful of my time and worked very hard to minimize my trips to MA. He did an excellent job of protecting my interests. Tom also did a great job of explaining the process to me in a way that I could understand. I felt better and better each time we talked because I knew I was in good hands. Also a special shout-out to his assistant, Maria. She was awesome with all the paperwork, etc. I appreciated that their office is very “electronic” oriented. We were able to do almost everything in a very efficient and organized way using some well thought out online processes. Maria was also very professional but patient with me when I sometimes was late with info. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed with attorney Thomas Taranto.
