Wilchins Cosentino & Novins Law Firm
We have intentionally designed Wilchins, Cosentino & Novins as a mid-sized law firm to provide exceptional service and exceptional value to our clients.
At WCN, we are large enough to have expertise in many law practices including family law, while small enough to deliver exceptional service through a personalized, concierge approach. We serve clients in Massachusetts with our primary office in Wellesley, MA and additional offices in Westford and Boston.
Paternity Actions

The family lawyers at Wilchins Cosentino & Novins represent individuals in connection with the prosecution and defense of paternity actions involving unmarried parents. Paternity actions may arise as a results of a dispute regarding parentage, child support or child custody. These matters can involve extensive court proceedings, financial and child-related discovery (including written discovery and depositions of parties and third parties), and negotiating and preparing agreements. The family law attorneys at WCN have extensive experience in paternity cases.

Representative Cases

Following trial in a paternity action, we obtained a child support order including retroactive child support to the date of the child’s birth.
