Christian S. Homsi
Christian S. Homsi began working at Haufler Associates as a legal intern in the summer of 1997, gaining significant family law experience by observing and assisting Attorney R. Christian Haufler, Jr., for two months. This internship woke the desire in Attorney Homsi to go to law school.
After graduating from Suffolk University Law School cum laude and being admitted to practice law in 2002, he opened his law office in downtown Boston. After more than three years as a sole practitioner in the areas of civil litigation, consumer protection, personal injury, and immigration law, Attorney Homsi returned to Haufler Associates to practice domestic relations law and estate planning.
Attorney Homsi is detail-oriented and thorough and prepares before he goes to court. He attempts to resolve cases by way of settlement but is not afraid to bring your case to trial if the terms of the opposing party’s settlement demands are unacceptable.
Attorney Homsi is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida and the District of Columbia. His court admissions include the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Attorney Homsi is a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association, the Florida Bar, and the District of Columbia Bar.

Jonathan T. Sloan
Attorney Jonathan “Nate” Sloan joined Haufler Associates in 2010, and discovered his affinity for family law. He has worked as a research assistant and clerk in the area of Real Property Law for several renowned and award-winning professors.
In 2005, Mr. Sloan was admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the State of New Jersey. In 2006, Attorney Sloan took a position with a major New England real estate firm and honed his skills as a residential conveyancing and escrow agent, and in 2008, he opened a law office with a focus on Debt Reconciliation and Settlement as well as Consumer Protection and Real Estate.
He contends that a well-drafted pre-nuptial agreement actually serves to strengthen a marriage as the document tends to remove a great deal of uncertainty and the accompanying stress from the relationship.

In Loving Memory Of Our Founder
R. Christian Haufler, Jr.
Attorney Haufler concentrated his legal practice in family law, including divorce, custody matters, and estate planning, as well as real estate law and related litigation. He was not only one of the best family law attorneys in the South Shore, he was more than that to most of his clients. He was warm, funny and made many of his clients glad that they met him. He was not your typical divorce attorney. He tried often to bring litigants/parties back together. He had the wisdom of knowing when people were just having a hard time and that they may have a chance to move forward without a divorce with a little bit of kind-hearted advice from Attorney Haufler. He was fair in all of his cases; to the point where a lot of his referrals were from the opposing party! With other cases, if he thought a settlement offer from the opposing party seemed unfair, he would proceed to trial.
