More Than Just an Attorney

I attended St. John’s Preparatory School and received my Bachelor’s Degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Boston College in 1987 and his Juris Doctor Degree, Cum Laude, from Boston College Law School in 1990. Following graduation from law school, I became associated with the law firm of Russell, Plummer & Rutherford in Boston practicing in the areas of real estate, taxation, estate planning and probate administration.

In 1994, I formed Cote & Casey with Daniel J. Casey, a general practice law firm, where I practiced in residential and commercial real estate conveyancing, land use, business law, and estate planning and probate administration.
