Janice Bassil

Janice Bassil

Partner

Janice Bassil practices criminal and family law throughout Massachusetts. She tried the Salvi clinic shooting case, the Terek Mehana federal terrorism case and is one of the few lawyers in the country to convince a jury to find her client not guilty by reason of insanity. Janice is known for her persistent and dogged style, thinking outside the box and repeatedly winning cases for clients accused of homicide and sex offenses. Her style has proven equally effective in college disciplinary actions and high net worth divorce actions.

Janice has been named Lawyer of the Year by the Lawyers Weekly for her dogged defense of juveniles and individuals accused of sex offenses.
