Sharyn T. Sooho, partner

Inspired by the adults in her life, Attorney Sooho grew up wanting to contribute meaningfully to her community.  After graduating from Boston University School of Law, she chose family law.  For over four decades, she has had the privilege of representing hundreds of people with their transitions into and out of marriages and other domestic partnerships.

In 1994 acted on a long-held desire to provide greater access to justice by creating a plain English explanation of family law.  That led to her firm producing and mailing a monthly newsletter to 3000 readers. They quickly realized that with the advent of the World Wide Web they could create, update and disseminate information without printing and mailing thousands of copies each month.

By May 1995, Attorney Sooho had one of the first online legal websites,, followed by the publication of the first of three editions of her book, “How to File for Divorce in Massachusetts.”  By 2010 DivorceNet published online content from more than 1800 family law lawyers around the world, and was one of the top three online family law sites.  DivorceNet is now owned and operated by Internet Brands as part of the Nolo and Avvo group.

Attorney Sooho is a founding member of the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts and past President of the Brandeis University Alumni Association.  She has served on numerous not-for-profit boards.  Most recently she served as a director of the Scandinavian Charitable Society and led its development committee.  In her professional capacity, Attorney Sooho has served on several committees of the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association.  She has lectured at local and national legal education programs and is an active member of a panel of attorneys offering services through the Volunteer Lawyers Project.

Attorney Sooho remains committed to delivering legal advice and services with sensitivity and empathy. She believes in the importance of social justice in the tradition of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, for whom her alma mater, Brandeis University, is named.
