Family, criminal, and civil lawyers are here to help

We are New Hampshire Family Law attorneys. Let us assist you with divorce, child custody battles, probate matters, mediation, and related criminal defense cases.

Our family law lawyers are proud to offer legal assistance in a small-practice setting. Collectively, they offer a variety of legal assistance, including cases that fall under family law, criminal defense law, civil law, probate matters, and mediation. Both Jennifer Moore Balkus and John Balkus received undergraduate degrees from the University of New Hampshire. While Jennifer stayed in New Hampshire to study law at Franklin Pierce Law Center (which is now University of New Hampshire School of Law), John received his law degree from Massachusetts School of Law. They are both licensed to practice before all New Hampshire state courts and the United States District Court, District of New Hampshire. Additionally, John is licensed to practice before Massachusetts state courts. Jennifer is a Certified Marital Mediator.
