Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am the managing partner at Bates & Riordan, LLP. The firm is certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Diversity Office as a Woman Business Enterprise.

My first career was as a Registered Nurse. After obtaining my nursing license in 1977, I worked in various Boston area teaching hospitals. I still maintain my nursing license.

I started my second career in 1987, when I started attending Northeastern University Law School.

I started Bates & Riordan in 1999 with my partner. We've been located in the Wollaston section of Quincy since 2001, but we have client through Massachusetts. We focus on personal injury law and criminal appeals.

All consultations are free and no obligation. All personal injury cases are on a contingency basis. Meaning, we don't get paid until you get paid. It costs nothing up front to hire us.
