Attorney Moriarty understands that divorce and other family law matters can affect every part of one's life and is committed to offering her clients thorough and knowledgeable legal assistance. She makes sure that clients understand and are involved with each step of their case and have the information necessary to make informed decisions. By its very nature, the practice of family law requires close personal attention to the needs of each individual client and their family. Attorney Moriarty recognizes that personal circumstances in every case are distinct and is available for personal support throughout the family law process.  She is a passionate advocate who exhibits a high standard of professionalism and ethics in practice.

Prior to joining Healey, Deshaies, Gagliardi & Woelfel, Attorney Moriarty was the founder of the Law Offices of Solen G. Moriarty in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where she practiced exclusively in all areas of family law. Prior to starting her own practice, she worked at Greater Boston Legal Services where she represented survivors of domestic violence in the Family Law Unit.

Outside the office, Attorney Moriarty lives in Newburyport and enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband and two daughters. She is the vice-president of Pre-K/K Bresnahan School Parent Teacher Organization and looks forward to coaching her oldest daughter's lacrosse team in the spring.
