Amy Huff-Harris, Esq. | Partner
Some attorneys will tell you what you want to hear. Amy Huff-Harris will tell you what you need to hear.
Amy’s straightforward approach is especially crucial for high net worth divorces with complex financial issues. High net worth individuals need an attorney who can help minimize risk and ensure assets are distributed fairly—which means having an attorney who will tell you exactly what to do to achieve the best possible result.
As head of our Family Law department, Amy is a passionate advocate for families that are going through divorce. Her clients know her as a thorough, compassionate problem-solver who fights for what’s right. Her colleagues in the courtroom know her as a skilled opponent. Amy has received multiple endorsements from Boston-area attorneys—including ones she’s faced in court.
Amy’s approach to divorce is unique: her number-one goal is to get clients through the process with the least possible damage to themselves, their children, and even their ex-spouse. By providing honest, effective guidance every step of the way, she works to achieve the best possible outcome for the entire family.
Amy’s number-one goal is to get her clients through a divorce with the least possible damage to themselves, their children, and even their ex-spouse.
While she won’t back down from a fight when necessary, Amy actively works to minimize conflict. Maybe most importantly, she helps her clients protect their children from landing in the middle of an adult dispute.
Amy and her team are especially good at navigating child custody, child support, and co-parenting—areas that, for many couples, are the most emotional and important aspects of divorce. Recognizing that most children need both parents to actively participate in their lives, Amy is a strong advocate for maximizing time with each parent by developing viable, long-term co-parenting plans. When appropriate, she’ll fight just as hard to safeguard children from a harmful parent.
She’s also experienced in handling paternity issues, parental alienation, alimony, property division, father’s rights, grandparents’ rights, and domestic violence cases (including both 209A emergency hearings and 209A defense). Amy has additional experience addressing the unique challenges of toxic situations with soon-to-be ex-spouses.
Amy graduated from Suffolk University Law School, magna cum laude, in 2004 while also earning a Master’s in Public Administration from the Frank Sawyer School of Management at Suffolk University. She received her B.A. in Communications from Emerson College.
