Lisa Siegel Belanger
Attorney at Law

I go the extra distance to advocate for what is right. What sets me apart from the pack is my eye for detail, ability to think in and outside the box, and exhaustively examining every possible angle to optimize the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Having focused on appellate work for over 20 years, I bring a more honed and intense level of persuasive, analytical, and research skills to the table than the average trial attorney. I am uniquely innovative and persistent in endeavoring to make my position irrefutable.

I succeeded in creating law of first impression proving to the Supreme Judicial Court that the statutory language based on the interpretation of the habitual offender statute (G.L. c. 279, § 25) necessitated clarification. As this issue had never been addressed before in the Massachusetts courts, I obtained review through a very rarely granted procedure of appellate review (G.L. c. 211, § 3). Commonwealth v. William Youngworth, III. 436 Mass. 603 (April 26, 2002) *See Making News
