Who We Are

In 1995, Marijo McCarthy left a larger law firm, moving her practice from the congested streets of downtown Boston to an elegant Victorian house in Newton – eight miles west of the city and adjacent to the Massachusetts Turnpike.

Providing a seamless transition of client services, long-time office manager Joanne McCarthy-Widett, corporate and real estate paralegal Erin Vannasse and accountant / business manager Andrea Graveline joined Marijo to form the nucleus of our client-centered, small business law practice.
