If you have a question related to these practice areas, for bankruptcy we recommend The Law Offices of Lee Darst; for criminal defense we recommend Cappetta Law Offices; and for firearms related work we recommend Julie Tolek of Think Pink Law. Julie recently became an Associate at Skylark Law & Mediation, PC, and will continue to run her own practice as well.
Julie will continue to represent both individual and business clients navigating second amendment compliance, and below is a message from Attorney Tolek regarding her 2nd amendment practice:
I think I was 20 years old when I shot my first gun. It was a Glock of some sort. I didn't pay attention to the model at the time because I was too busy listening to the instructor tell me I was a natural (obviously). We were shooting at a bullet proof glass panel that had been removed from a car. My mom had taken me with her to go shooting since she had worked with this instructor before, so I credit her with introducing me to firearms...although today she denies she had anything to do with it.For more information contact Julie at Think Pink Law.
I continued to shoot over the years, but it wasn't until the summer that I took the bar exam (over ten years after I had shot my first gun, ever) that I actually applied for and received my License to Carry Firearm in Massachusetts. I took my safety class on my birthday that summer, as my present to myself. Getting my LTC had been on my bucket list since the day I pulled my first trigger so I was floored.
The day I took my firearms qualification exam (as required where I lived at the time) it was a gorgeous day, the sun reflecting in the Boston Harbor. The test was at Boston Police Firearms Range at Moon Island. It was three days before the bar exam. I couldn't have picked a better way to take a break from studying. I was the only girl there.
After my shooting test, I decided I like revolvers. Double action, mostly. To me, they are works of art. Revolvers demand respect (like all firearms.). Cool metal with curves. A revolver is a contradiction in itself; old school, yet modern - a timeless piece of handcrafted machinery, its mechanics unchanged over hundreds of years.
Lucky for me (and you!), my passion for firearms has intertwined itself with my passion for law. That I got my License to Carry AND my license to practice law at the same time is symbolic: I do what I love and I love what I do. Firearms law is a specialized type of law where having a passionate lawyer who just happens to also be a gun enthusiast makes for powerful advocacy for you, our clients.
