Experienced Massachusetts Family Lawyer
Attorney Matthew Blouin is known as a highly competent and ethical family law attorney throughout the Central and Western Massachusetts legal communities.
Matthew has handled complex family law situations, including divorce, child custody and parenting matters, child support, and property division, as well as post-judgment modifications and complaints about contempt. He works with a wide variety of clients, including men and women, business owners, spouses of business owners, doctors, salespeople, state workers, engineers, factory workers, unemployed spouses, homemakers, and educators.
Attorney Blouin has solidified his reputation as the go-to attorney for both working spouses and the person who left all financial matters to their spouse and now, with divorce pending, feels both scared and vulnerable. His combination of sophistication and heart make him a fantastic family lawyer.
Clients say that Matthew has an instinctive feel for the needs of his clients. He can be tender when needed, but also stern if that’s what the situation requires. His calm, soft-spoken demeanor may be misleading, but it’s his secret weapon. By calmly listening and observing, he’s able to target the most important issues to the other party, creating potential bargaining points that he uses to obtain the best possible outcomes for his clients. A masterful negotiator, Attorney Blouin says he prefers settling cases without going to trial.
“The last thing you want is to have a judge decide who your children are going to live with, or how you are going to live your life.” - Attorney Matthew Boulin
Given his experience in Central and Western Massachusetts courtrooms, Attorney Blouin has the added advantage of knowing many of the judges and courtroom personnel throughout the state. This not only helps him fine tune the case according to the judge, but it also helps him explain to clients what they can expect.
Matthew’s Passion in the Legal Field
Matthew says the cases he relishes most are those in which he can help protect children from harmful situations, including helping grandparents seeking guardianship and visitation. One of the cases he’s most proud of is helping a woman gain custody of her granddaughter after the girl’s mother died of a drug overdose. A judge initially granted custody to the father, but Attorney Blouin was able to get that decision reversed, and the girl is now being raised by her grandmother.
Most judges believe children are better off with their parents, but that’s not always the case, Attorney Blouin said. He will tenaciously fight for what’s in the best interest of the child, regardless of the case.
Attorney Matthew Blouin is a graduate of Western New England University and Western New England University School of Law. He and his wife live in Worcester. When not helping clients, he enjoys playing the guitar and bass. He also loves joining his father to cruise around in their 1969 Camaro convertible. He’s an avid fan of the New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.
