Boston Law Firm

With Over 80 Years Of Experience


Home of nationally-recognized leaders in trial and family law, Esdaile, Barrett, Jacobs & Mone is one of New England’s most well-respected law offices.  Founded in 1938 by civil litigation pioneer J. Newton Esdaile and his law school classmate, general practitioner Charles W. Barrett, Sr., the firm’s early practice shaped the nascent civil litigation world both in Boston and nationally.  Over the years, the Esdaile and Barrett partnership has attracted some of the most talented lawyers in Boston and has maintained a consistent commitment to furthering client interests through ethical practice.


Building upon the creative energy of its founders, Esdaile, Barrett, Jacobs & Mone has steadily grown into a practice that now stands seven lawyers strong.  Members of the current partnership have served in preeminent leadership positions in the Bar, including a past-President of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a past-President of the Massachusetts Bar Association, two past presidents of Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, and past-president of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.  Four of the attorneys have gone on to become judges on the Massachusetts District Court, Massachusetts Superior Court and Massachusetts Court of Appeals.  Three of the attorneys are fellows of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and one has been admitted to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.  The firm’s attorneys have written and lectured extensively on issues relating to trial practice, civil litigation, and domestic relations, and have been selected by their peers for inclusion in publications such as The Best Lawyers of America, Lawdragon, and Super Lawyers.
