Michael D. Paige, Esq.


After earning my undergraduate degree I worked as a cost accountant and controller for more than a decade.  While I was working full-time I attended graduate school in the evenings and earned a masters degree in business administration.

Prior to attending law school I worked in a wide variety of capacities for a number of different employers from sales and marketing to administration and accounting.  I am a former SBA small business owner.  After working in finance, accounting and higher education I decided to attend law school. 

Unlike most lawyers who attend law school full-time I entered Suffolk University Law School's evening program.  For the four years that I attended law school in the evenings I worked full-time days as a paralegal for a very well respected plaintiff's litigation firm in downtown Boston.  

I am able to weave my extraordinarily broad and varied background into the practice of law.  Unlike most lawyers whose backgrounds and experience are limited to the practice of law I am able to read and understand financial statements.  I understand the pressures that small businesses face. 

Having been a former small business owner and accountant I practice law with a great deal of pragmatism.

I am an Associate Professor in the Law, Taxation and Financial Planning Department at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. 

You would be hard pressed to meet anyone else with as wide and varied of a professional background as I have.  Please ask me about the different jobs that I have had.  You will be amazed!
