MacCausland Law

"I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I had one of the finest lawyers imaginable, sitting there, by my side, and protecting me in ways I had never imagined, before. I can't thank her enough!” - May 10, 2016 Client Review posted on 

Cynthia E. MacCausland, Esq. maintains a solo practice law office dedicated to serving clients with low and moderate incomes and clients with limited financial resources. Cynthia established her practice in 2009 at the height of the great recession, when IOLTA funds, bar association grants, and state monies were at an all time low and totally insufficient to fund agencies and organizations dedicated to assisting indigent and low income clients. 

Cynthia’s clients may not qualify or or cannot obtain services from, indigent and pro bono legal services and agencies, and cannot afford to pay the full price retainers and hourly rates charged and required by most law firms. Cynthia makes a particular effort to serve the most vulnerable including victims of domestic violence, immigrant clients, and military service members and veterans. 

Cynthia enhances access to legal representation to all clients by providing flat fee services through the Limited Assistance Representation (LAR) model. Cynthia’s approach to alternative fee agreements and service models are unique to other Boston and Massachusetts area lawyers and ensure families throughout Boston and Eastern Massachusetts may benefit from the consultation, services and support of an experienced attorney.

Cynthia is active in the community participating in events and training seminars, engaging with her peers and serving on several committees with the Women’s Bar Association, the Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Bar Association. In addition, she has been selected as a Rising Star in the practice of Family Law by Massachusetts Super Lawyers for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Cynthia was recently recognized as a Lifetime Fellow of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation.
