I have been representing clients in Massachusetts who are involved in uncontested as well as contested divorces for over 38 years.  In that time period I have experienced different types of cases that might fit into categories, but each case is unique based upon its own set of facts.

Let me help you find a resolution that is fair under the factual circumstances of your case on the day we meet, on the day that the divorce judgment issues, and years thereafter.

Attorney Byers handled my divorce and custody battle, which was complicated and long. It was a removal case to a country that was not a signatory of the Hague convention. Attorney Byers exceeded all of my expectations, by being available on weekends, evenings, and even holidays. Always checking on me to make sure I was alright during the process and even now that it is over. There are not enough words to thank him for everything he has done for me. I am extremely grateful. Attorney Byers is not only a highly knowledgeable attorney, but a compassionate person as well. He fought for me and my child and I cannot thank him enough.

I originally went to Attorney Byers for advice and representation on a probate matter. I was quite shaken up at the time and wasn't sure there was even a case worth pursuing. He did an excellent job of putting my worries at ease and explaining all of my options. He took time to explain anything I didn't understand. His compassion, advice and knowledge of the law were very impressive and the result he achieved for me was more than I ever expected. I have since used Attorney Byers for other legal matters and would highly recommend him.

Top Notch Attorney!

Attorney Byers represented me in a paternity matter and did an excellent job. He took time to explain the laws and what my rights were and was very patient with me during this difficult process. He is an extremely competent attorney and I personally feel he is the best family law attorney in the area and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a paternity attorney.

I cannot say enough good things about attorney Byers. He helped me and my family through a very difficult divorce case and we are forever grateful for his hard work and professionalism. His knowledge and experience shined in the court room and it was obvious how highly respected he is by the judges. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a family law attorney.

I love this man. He is absolutely the best! I wish he could take care of all my legal needs.

My girls were taken out of state by their mother. She said they were never coming back. I called around and spoke to other lawyers and they all kept saying how hard of a case this was going to be. And obviously concentrated on getting 5k to 10k retainer without giving me any hope what so ever. I spoke to Phil and he said to come on in so we can get the kids back to the Commonwealth ASAP. Phil said he would make her return and he did. She was in the process of getting a fraudulent restraining order against me in another state because I was not there to defend myself. Phil reached out to someone that is a member of a huge association he is a member of. The lawyer defended my position and served her the same day. The kids were back in Mass a few days later and we had our day in court! Needless to say it was a very good outcome. Living in a state that is notorious for favoring the mother, makes me feel lucky to have found Phil. I can't end this without mentioning Phil's staff… EVERYONE in the office is a joy to deal with. Bottom line is Phil gets results. Period.

Side Note: After a while the ex and I started speaking on a somewhat civil manner. She told me that she had such a hard time getting a lawyer on such short notice. She said the lawyer she really wanted refused the case because she told him that Phil was my lawyer and he didn't want the case to affect his win loss ratio!

Great result.

Atty Byers did excellent work on 2 Modifications of Alimony, which I was paying $670.00 per week and I presently am not paying anything. I am a retired Atty.and this burden has been lifted. Phil was very efficient and always responsive to all calls etc.

Attorney Byers helped me through a very difficult divorce, while always keeping the best interest of my children in mind. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a divorce

A good man, person and excellent attorney.

I have know Atty. Philip Byers personally and professionally for many years. He handled my divorce proceedings in a most professional manner. During the preliminary proceedings, he had provided the opposing counsel with a separation agreement that was both reasonable and fair. The opposing counsel had not interest in any negotiations. The resulting judicial decision was virtually identical to his proposed settlement, after two years of delay and costly trial. I deeply respect his abilities and expertise in his area of concentration, Family law.

Phil is a consummate professional who well represented my family member while showing compassion to her throughout the process. As a result of his expert handling, but more importantly because of his patience and kindness, I am now proud to consider him a friend.
