Seth N. Stratton

I enjoy giving advice and resolving disputes.  I admire people who start, build and maintain businesses.  After starting a career in government and politics and considering becoming a prosecutor, I realized that the legal complexities of business operations were more interesting and intellectually challenging to me.  I am a business lawyer who takes pride in advising and advocating for my clients. I was born and raised in Springfield, MA, the son of teacher and police officer and am happy to be living, working and raising a family in the Pioneer Valley.
