In May 1994, three principal members of a Boston law firm decided to rely on their common goals and beliefs, combine their knowledge and experience, and branch out on their own. From that simple yet challenging decision, S&F came into being. Founded in June 1994 by Mary H. Schmidt, Phyllis E. Federico, and the late Richard D. Packenham, S&F has since almost tripled its legal work force and moved to an office in Boston ‘s historic Back Bay.
The firm of Schmidt & Federico, P.C. has earned the AV® Rating in the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Pre-Eminent Lawyers™ and has therefore been designated by their colleagues as pre-eminent in their field.
We focus on providing advice and legal solutions in family law, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, taxation, trust & estates, probate law and litigation.
