Child Custody Matters

These types of matters are usually urgent and require a fast response to ensure the Court intervenes for the benefit of your child. Having an experienced lawyer by your side is important in protecting your child and your rights as a parent. This includes filing the proper motions and knowing what information is important to include in those motions. Each case is unique and requires a hands on approach to go through all the details to formulate a specific plan of actions for you. The Law Office of Matthew L. LaMountain will sit down with you and explain the process and your rights with you to ensure you understand the process.


Divorce is never a pleasant experience and The Law Office of Matthew L. LaMountain will help you through this turbulent and emotional period of your life. There are many legal and personal issues to deal with when a marriage ends. I will meet with you and go over, in detail, what to expect from the legal process and how to best protect your rights. There is no one approach to best handle a divorce and The Law Office of Matthew L. LaMountain knows this. I will create a specific legal plan of action for you which protects those things most important to you.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Speaking about the possible end of a marriage is never an easy thing and a subject most people do not discuss. However, The Law Office of Matthew L. LaMountain recommends that you consider this option. These agreements may save a lot of turmoil and headaches at the time of a divorce or separation. I recommend that the parties talk about the division of assets and other items and speak with a lawyer about entering into a Prenuptial (before the marriage) or Postnuptial (after the marriage) agreement.

Restraining Orders

Going to Court to have someone legally prevented from contacting you is a serious legal issue in your life. You need to have an attorney that is familiar with the Courts and has experience in arguing to Judges about why you need this restraining order. I have extensive litigation experience and I am a former RI State Prosecutor. I have spent my entire professional career in the Courtroom, arguing for my clients, and getting the results they seek.

Proven Results


Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I went to Matt in a major time of crisis for me not really knowing at all how the process works or what was in store. He was clear from the beginning on what all our options were, what the next steps were to take, and how to navigate the process. Dealing with a bit of a language barrier was generally not an issue as everything was explained to us very clearly. He is very knowledgeable about both sides of the law as he previously was a prosecutor; he has excellent connections in the system. We retained Matt for a very doable price, and he got us the absolute best possible outcome in the case - complete dismissal. Overall our situation was rather complex and Matt did fantastic work for us, we could not be more satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend anyone in need of criminal defense to call him first.
