Farias Family Law, P.C.
Meet the Team
Bill Farias, Esq.
Attorney Bill Farias is the firm’s founder and managing attorney. His focus is on family law, and mainly divorce, custody and support matters.
He chose family law because it provides an opportunity to help people who are at a low point in life. He loves that people come to him in the darkest of times, and that he has the chance to not only get them through it, but to actually turn their circumstances into a positive experience. That’s what this firm aims for in every case, both in terms of the quality of the legal work and the client service.
Before law school, Bill was a case manager at the Department of Children & Families in MA. This experience allowed him to work closely with families, and required work on issues of custody, mental health, substance abuse, medical care, schooling, domestic violence and other issues that are typically addressed in divorce and custody cases.
Bill dedicated the early part of his career to building the litigation skills. He worked as an assistant district attorney and tried a number of cases before juries and judges. When there are contested issues in family law, it’s important that the attorney has the skill, experience and courage to push the client’s position.
For fun, Bill likes to read and to travel with his wife Kenia, and two little girls, Gabriella and Emma. They have a golden-doodle Allie and a shi-tzu mix Teddy. Bill grew up playing hockey and volleyball, but now he’s too old and slow, and gets sore easily, so he stopped. He now channels his competitive drive toward litigation.
Bill’s obsessed with building a firm that combines top-quality legal representation and elite client service.
