Attorney Venezia has appeared approximately 3,000 times in nearly every court in the Commonwealth on behalf of his clients.
Attorney Jerry Venezia began practicing law in 1989 after a career with the Massachusetts State Police and the Massachusetts State Racing Commission, where he served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for six years and was involved in hundreds of investigations dealing with violations of the State Gaming Laws. He also chaired hundreds of administrative hearings, and wrote the decisions supporting the Commission’s findings.
During his tenure with the State Police, Attorney Venezia served as a criminal law instructor at the State Police Academy as well as a detective assigned to the Attorney General’s Office, the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office and the Governor’s Office.
Attorney Venezia specializes in Criminal Law Defense, Family Law and representing people involved in accidents. His approach to every client is the same: be fair, be patient, be understanding and always do what’s in their best interest. While he always listens carefully to his clients desires, he believes it’s more important to tell his clients what they can realistically expect as an outcome for their cases.
In 2011, Matt received recognition in Lawyer’s Weekly for a personal injury case, where his client received the second largest jury verdict in the state.
Matt Venezia grew up admiring his father. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with honors he saw the perfect way to follow in his footsteps. He attended Suffolk University Law School, his father’s alma mater, during which time he worked for a prominent Boston personal injury firm as a paralegal on all types of personal injury cases.
After graduating in 2010 and passing the Bar Exams in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Matt joined his father and brought expertise in personal injury law to the firm. For a full year he shadowed his father while he providing legal services to a multitude of different clients, rounding out his expertise in criminal, family and landlord tenant law. More importantly, Matt learned from his father how to listen to his client’s needs and to tell them what they need to hear and not what they want hear, how to always make himself available, go the extra mile and put a personal touch on every case.
Matt now handles a spectrum of cases including personal injury, criminal, landlord tenant, industrial and workplace accidents, workman’s compensation and family law.

""Gerald Venezia rescued my family. His deep knowledge, strategic approach, and organized manner were tremendous assets in our legal battle of a lifetime. Additionally, it is clear that his expertise and attention to detail are fueled by his deep care for families. His dual expertise in Probate and Criminal courts turned out to be absolutely vital in a shockingly messy child custody case, and we are lucky to have found him. I and my family offer the very highest recommendation for this man; he will take excellent care of you.""
"Gerry was my right hand man in working towards an equitable divorce. He was great in court when we had to be there, and was equally great dealing with the opposing attorney trying to resolve issues. That was true both in 4-way meetings and when calling/writing on my behalf. His only drawback is he is a little old fashioned. He does not regularly use email. He tends to use fax and snail mail. While that may seem old-fashioned, so is the Probate system. The other thing that is old fashioned is decidedly positive, he answers his own phone. When you do leave a message, he is the one that calls you back.His fees were very reasonable, I spent less than half what my ex did, and Gerry drafted most of our decree."
