Attorney Profile

When families in Massachusetts are facing legal issues, they can turn to Kristin A. Bullwinkel for the counsel they need. As a partner at Bullwinkel & Brooks, LLC, she represents clients in Westford, Acton, Littleton, Chelmsford, Lowell, Harvard, Groton, Ayer, Carlisle, Pepperell as well as throughout Middlesex, Essex and Worcester Counties. For decades, she has helped families navigate many issues such as the following: divorce, child support, alimony, custody, modification, enforcement of court orders, paternity, and pre and postnuptial agreements.

Adept in finding comprehensive solutions quickly, Attorney Bullwinkel is known for her ability to guide people through mediation. She understands that long, drawn-out proceedings in a courtroom setting can sometimes add to the stress of an already emotional situation. Using compassion, she has successfully reached amicable outcomes in even highly contested cases. Past clients have given her glowing reviews for her sensitivity, professionalism and efficiency. At the same time, she is fiercely protective of a client's rights and will go to trial when the need arises.

Attorney Bullwinkel serves as a Guardian ad Litem and as a Parent Coordinator and has been appointed by the court and privately retained for both positions.  As such, she is especially in tune with how legal battles can affect children. She consistently helps parents resolve their issues while ensuring that the child's best interests remain a priority.

A member of the Massachusetts and North Central Middlesex Bar Associations, Attorney Bullwinkel also teaches law and psychology as an adjunct teacher at Boston College. She is admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

In 1989, Attorney Bullwinkel earned a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College. She then went on to receive a Juris Doctor (cum laude) in 1995 from Suffolk University Law School.
