Theresa Roeder joined Rubin and Rudman’s Family Law practice after graduating from Boston University School of Law in May of 2019. Theresa’s practice focuses on all aspects of complex domestic relations law, including divorce, child custody and child support, alimony, paternity, asset valuation and division, as well as modification and contempt actions, and assisting with drafting and negotiating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Theresa discovered her passion for Family Law while working at the BUSL Civil Litigation Clinic in conjunction with Greater Boston Legal Services, where she represented low-income clients in their divorce matters as an SJC 3:03 student attorney. Theresa’s experience with low income clients guides her practice now – she works efficiently and effectively to achieve results for her clients, while always keeping in mind the need to contain some of the thornier aspects of domestic relations law, such as the often insurmountable cost of divorce litigation. Further, her undergraduate Psychology degree from Northeastern University trained her to recognize and understand many of the mental and emotional issues that often accompany divorce and other domestic relations matters, no matter the amicability of the parties involved. She uses this training to balance her role as a lawyer and advocate with the inevitable need for her clients to also work through the psychological issues they may experience as they navigate an incredibly difficult time in their lives. Prior to attending law school, Theresa worked at a boutique law firm in downtown Boston, where she managed several attorney’s practices as a paralegal for the firm’s litigation team.
