When Life Gets Legal SM

Alfred J. Albano, Jr.

  • Of Counsel

"As an attorney, there is nothing more important to me than client satisfaction. I take great pride in the fact that many of my clients have been with me for years. They know that for me, the attorney-client relationship is a lasting bond, not a one-time transaction. I am honored by the trust place in me by clients and their loved ones, and I work hard to ensure that everything I do suits the exact needs of each individual, from the first moment of contact through the conclusion of the case."

Al is a highly skilled practitioner with over 35 years of experience representing Western Mass clients. He is a member of the firm’s real estate, business, litigation, family law, and estate planning departments. He frequently works with Hadley-area clients on matters both personal and business-related. Al works primarily from Bacon Wilson's location on Russell Street in Hadley, and is available to clients throughout Western Massachusetts. He is a graduate of the New England School of Law.
