More About Attorney Lynch
Attorney Lynch has built his reputation on high profile jury verdicts, winning settlement negotiations and positive family law outcomes for thousands of clients. Success has not bred complacency, however. As one client recently put it, Attorney Lynch is the “most professional and hard-working lawyer I’ve ever known.”
After putting himself through law school, Attorney Lynch spent the late-1970’s and 1980’s as a prosecutor, insurance defense lawyer, and plaintiff’s attorney for the acclaimed Brockton attorney, P.J. Piscitelli. Following Attorney Piscitelli’s death, Attorney Lynch began his own law practice in 1991. In 1995, he co-founded the firm that is known today as Lynch & Owens.
The son of a Boston Police officer, and one of seven children, Attorney Lynch grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts. In 1983, he moved to Hingham, Massachusetts, where he still lives today.
