Teehan uses his extensive knowledge of varying aspects of law to benefit many areas within his local community.

Consumer Attorney Services’ new foreclosure and bankruptcy cases in Massachusetts will put Teehan’s skills to good use. The recent rise in foreclosure and bankruptcy cases in Massachusetts for Consumer Attorney Services could be due in part to a rise in unemployment rates.
