Prince Lobel has expanded its Domestic Relations Practice Group and Litigation Practice Group with the addition of Kelly N. Griffin, Julianna Zitz, and Michael A. Kippins.  Griffin and Zitz are advocates for their clients in family law, while Kippins joins the firm as a commercial litigator.

Kelly N.

Julianna Zitz joins us from a New York-based domestic relations firm.  She is experienced in a variety of family law issues, including contested and uncontested divorces, child support and custody, removal, alimony, equitable distribution, prenuptial agreements, and paternity disputes.  Throughout law school, she served on the Executive Board of the New England Law Review and as a legal intern for the Justices of the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court for Suffolk County.

“We are excited to grow our Domestic Relations practice, which is one of the busiest in Boston,” Prince Lobel’s Managing Partner Craig M. Tateronis stated.  “Kelly and Julianna are passionate advocates for their clients and will complement our already excellent team.”

Prince Lobel’s Domestic Relations Practice Group, chaired by Donald G. Tye and Nancy A. Freed, offers expert legal advice, trust, and understanding in all matters relating to family law.  Our attorneys adopt a collaborative approach, working with the firm’s other practice groups to advise our clients on how the emotional and financial issues involved in domestic relations law may affect individuals, families, and business owners.

Commercial litigator Michael A. Kippins recently completed a clerkship with the Honorable Margot Botsford of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.  His experience includes complex commercial litigation matters for businesses, including shareholders’ rights, zoning restrictions, and insurance disputes.  While attending law school, Kippins was a judicial intern for U.S. Magistrate Judge Jennifer C. Boal of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

“Our litigation group is concluding another busy year.  We expect Michael to hit the ground running and play an active role in a variety of ongoing matters,” said Tateronis.
