David Ringius, Jr.Associate Attorney
Having extensive experience as a divorce and custody litigator, Attorney David Ringius, Jr., thought he would be able to breeze through his own family court proceedings fairly easily. However, he quickly realized that being a party in a case is much harder than being an attorney, and the family court process is much more difficult emotionally than can be imagined. Dave has joined O’Connor Family Law because he wants to be able to give a person going through a heated divorce or custody case a sense of security that someone has their back, the knowledge that makes the process understandable, and a voice to ensure their side is heard.
Prior to joining the firm, Attorney Ringius worked with the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office for over ten years where he prosecuted various crimes including sexual assaults, domestic violence, and juvenile delinquency matters. He also served as a liaison to the Department of Revenue in the Department’s child support enforcement unit, which also included extensive work with paternity cases, modifications, and contempt actions. Dave has also prosecuted criminal non-payment of child support cases as well as child abandonment cases. For the past few years, Attorney Ringius represented union members in issues that arose in their lives involving criminal law and family law, as well as immigration, real estate, civil actions, and landlord/tenant issues.
In other words, this aggressive attorney is incredibly well-rounded and ready to help you get the best result possible in your own matter. A past client has said that he felt lost and scared until he met Dave. The client says, “Upon meeting David Ringius and having a conversation with him I knew I had the right attorney. Every time we show up to court I am no longer hopeless.” He continues, “I’m very grateful to have Dave Ringius stand with me in this case.” When it comes to family law, Dave believes, “This process can be one of the scariest and most confusing times a person will encounter. A good attorney will work to ensure that this process is a simple and smooth as possible, but will ensure their client is protected and never given the run-around.”
When he is not battling in the courtroom or advising clients, Dave has two kids who are his world. He coaches various sports in his hometown serving as a coach and member of the Board of Directors of Braintree Youth Soccer and Braintree Youth Basketball. Additionally, he is a 5th degree black belt who has continues to train and instruct all ages at the school where he grew up training. He is also the Vice President of the Braintree Town Council because he believes he can help to better the community where he lives and raises his children.
Additionally, he’s one of the lucky ones who has been able to figure out how to have a wonderful relationship with his children’s mother, and will try to share some tips on how to accomplish that.
