    Attorney Profile

    An attorney at Army & Roche, LLC, Joseph D. Roche divides his practice among family law matters, estate planning and administration, and probate and trust litigation. He works out of his firm’s office in Worcester, Massachusetts, and he provides representation to clients throughout the central and eastern portions of the Commonwealth. As an undergraduate, Mr. Roche attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and he majored in political science and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 2005. He then enrolled at Suffolk University Law School, and in 2008, he was awarded his Juris Doctor cum laude.

    Mr. Roche has extensive experience in a wide variety of family law cases. Many of his clients are facing the end of their marriages, and he works with them on issues such as child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and property division. When it is possible, Mr. Roche assists them in negotiating a comprehensive settlement agreement, but in situations where talks have broken down and litigation becomes necessary, he represents their interests in court. His other family law matters have included the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements and the obtaining of modifications to or the enforcement of existing parenting and support court orders.

    Apart from his family law practice, Mr. Roche assists people who are planning for the disposition of their estate by his preparation and review of wills, revocable and living trusts, advance medical directives, and financial and health care powers of attorney. He guides heirs and beneficiaries through the probate process, and he has handled litigation involving executors and trustees. A member of the Worcester County Bar Association, Mr. Roche has been admitted to practice in Massachusetts since 2008.
