Environmental
Drohan Tocchio & Morgan has extensive experience in representing clients with environmental issues. Our attorneys have successfully handled the permitting of new projects, cleanup of hazardous waste sites, due diligence for acquisitions and regulatory compliance. We also work on all aspects of environmental litigation – from wetlands and waterways appeals to cost-recovery actions. Our experience includes representing gasoline station and convenience store operators in the acquisition of new properties and ensuring regulatory compliance of existing properties; permitting of new wetlands and waterways projects including marinas, commercial buildings and single-family homes; recovering response costs for owners whose property has been contaminated by hazardous materials; advising farmers with wetlands, farming and land use problems; and pursuing administrative and court appeals of permit decisions.

Civil Litigation
Drohan Tocchio & Morgan has an extensive background in civil litigation. Our practice in this area is broad and varied, focusing on the prosecution and defense of commercial and business tort litigation in employment, real estate, construction, distribution relationships, intellectual property, licensing, trusts and estates, insurance and professional negligence. Our lawyers also are extensively involved in alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation. In addition, we handle personal injury claims, employment related litigation and other areas of litigation.

Divorce Mediation
This less-adversarial process is ideal for couples who can agree in principle on basic decisions in a marital split. One of our certified attorneys serves as a neutral mediator to guide the divorce through negotiations toward a settlement. Communication and cooperation are used to help both parties achieve a balanced and equitable resolution in a difficult situation. Divorce mediation is often faster and less expensive than the traditional legal process for dissolution of a relationship.

Divorce
Our attorneys are well-prepared to protect the rights and property of our clients during a divorce. Drohan Tocchio & Morgan will represent you to resolve all issues, such as division of property, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. We provide expert advice and counsel through the legal process involving separation, nuptial agreements, property distribution, filing for divorce, restraining and protective orders, and more.

Family Law
Our firm provides complete and confidential services in matters of divorce, guardianship and estate administration. Family law encompasses important legal issues: spousal and child support, custody, division of assets and liabilities in divorce, adoption, termination of parental rights, paternity, dependency and child neglect, and protection from abuse. Our attorneys can provide expert guidance and counsel in these critical areas.

Estate Planning
Estate planning is one of the most important steps a person can take to make sure his or her final wishes are honored. The attorneys at Drohan Tocchio & Morgan can assist in developing a plan that will legally detail your desires and provide for loved ones in your absence. A comprehensive estate plan can resolve legal issues that arise whenever anyone dies: real estate, bank accounts, stocks and other securities, life insurance policies, personal property such as automobiles, jewelry and artwork, and more.

Probate Administration
In the event of death, the attorneys at Drohan Tocchio & Morgan can provide the legal guidance and expertise necessary to navigate this process. Probate sorts out the transfer of a deceased person’s property where there is no will or clear legal direction. Our attorneys work with the courts and advise you of your rights through this process, as well as provide legal services for caveats, probate of wills, petitions for letters of testamentary and administration, administration of intestate estates, objections to executors and administrators, intestacy proceedings, ancillary estates, inventories, tax management, final accounting, investing and distributing assets, gathering and protecting assets, and more.

Real Estate
Drohan Tocchio & Morgan has a long history of representing clients in real estate law. We provide legal counseling for buying, selling, owning, leasing, exchanging, financing and developing commercial and residential property. Our attorneys are also experienced in real property secured financing, acquisitions, tax deferred exchanges, commercial leasing and brokerage issues.

Zoning & Land Use
Our lawyers are experts in matters of zoning and land use with municipalities and all state and federal courts. Drohan Tocchio & Morgan represents many clients in municipal and zoning issues before town planning boards, zoning board of appeals, conservation commissions and other community agencies. Our attorneys have the critical experience to guide you through the difficult process of zoning and land use approvals for your project.
