Weymouth

Located on Massachusetts’ South Shore, Weymouth, Massachusetts, is a Greater Boston suburb with a population of almost 54,000 residents. It is the second-oldest European settlement in the state and its thirty-three percent of Irish residents make it the tenth-highest Irish population in the entire country. The town of Weymouth’s northernmost border is the location of Hingham Bay, one of the three small bays found in the outer portion of Boston Harbor, and home to several of the Boston Harbor Islands. Due to its proximity to the water and to Boston itself, Weymouth’s history is notable in its role in the American Revolution, where military posts were strategically established at Hingham Bay’s entrance. Weymouth was home to Abigail Smith Adams, the wife of second President John Adams and the mother of sixth President John Quincy Adams; the house in which she was born and raised was built in 1865 and has been preserved by the town as a testament to what a respected and instrumental woman she was during the early revolutionary period. Weymouth also played a role in World War II, producing many ships and submarines at Weymouth’s Fore River Shipyard. Presently, Weymouth is home to many spots for exciting outdoor activities, such as biking, canoeing, and camping at Webb State Memorial Park, hiking and birdwatching in the marshes of Great Esker Park, and summer days spent on George Lane Beach.

Weymouth is located in Norfolk County. The town’s District Court matters are handed at the neighboring Quincy District Court. Weymouth’s Probate Court matters are handled through the Norfolk Probate and Family Court in Canton, Massachusetts, while its Superior Court matters are heard in Norfolk Superior Court in Dedham, Massachusetts.

I hired Mr Duncan to deal with a very sensitive issue that my daughter had. Since the first contact, I had a very good impression of him. He transmitted confidence and appeared to know exactly what to do. I called and emailed him many times, he was polite and comprehensible with the anxiety of a father and appeared to know every step to solve the case. I strongly recommend Mr Duncan. Flavio Lajoia

I contacted Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein Law in April 2018 to get help for my son on an education-related matter. We worked primarily with Zoraida Fernandez, an Associate, and when needed met with Ruth O'Meara-Costello, a Partner. Zoraida was excellent. The whole process was emotionally exhausting and depressing and Zoraida was the only bright light in all of it... Nancy O.

I worked with Emma Quinn-Judge and Monica Shah. And from my first contact on the phone, on to my first meeting in their office and during the trial, I found them and the firm's entire team to be a group of consummate legal professionals who are very knowledgeable, patient, dedicated, fair, honest and caring...

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office... Suzanne D.
