Travers | Dombroski PC

Travers | Dombroski is the preeminent law firm dedicated to all aspects of the practice of Family Law in Trial, Appellate, and Federal courts across Massachusetts.  While Travers | Dombroski traces its roots back nearly two decades, Attorney Margaret S. Travers established herself as a pioneer in the area of Family Law through a distinguished career spanning nearly 50 years.  Margaret gained both local and national recognition for her outstanding work in this practice area.

Attorney Ed Dombroski similarly established himself as a leader in the practice of Family Law through zealous advocacy, including experience in international custody litigation under the Hague Convention, before the U.S. Federal District Court (First Circuit) and before the U.S. Court of Appeals.

In 2002, Margaret and Ed joined forces and soon thereafter established Travers | Dombroski, through a shared passion for the law and zealous advocacy for our clients’ interests.

​While Margaret has since retired, Ed and the Travers | Dombroski team continue the proud tradition of excellence and unwavering commitment to our clients.  The Firm highly regards its place as a top Family Law firm in Massachusetts and has a passion for delivering unmatched representation to the clients we serve today and into the future.
