Attorney Jameson W. Toner prides himself on understanding his clients’ goals, and working hard to help his clients achieve those goals.
Mr. Toner has represented individuals and organizations in a wide range of civil and criminal litigation. Highlights include a proceeding in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in which Mr. Toner helped a creditor obtain a judgment that a debtor owed the creditor over $445,000 due to the debtor’s embezzlement and defalcation as a fiduciary, and could not discharge that debt in bankruptcy. In another proceeding, before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, Mr. Toner helped the executor of an estate oppose a challenge to the executor’s appointment and to a will benefiting the executor and his family. After a hearing, the Appeals Court affirmed a Probate Court decision in the client’s favor: Mr. Toner’s client was able to remain as the estate’s executor and he and his family were able to receive the property they were entitled to under the will.
Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Toner taught English in Japan; worked for a large financial-services organization; and helped prepare immigrant-visa petitions on behalf of doctors and scientists at a firm specializing in immigration law.
