Nicholas Butland, Esq.
Offices: Raynham and Plymouth, Massachusetts
Attorney Butland’s current practice focuses on petitioning cases for Guardianships and Conservatorship. Before working at Cohen Cleary, Attorney Butland worked as an intern in both the civil and criminal divisions at the Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office. Attorney Butland’s experience at the Rhode Island Attorney General’s office served to expose him to several areas of law and to develop as a comfortable speaker in the courtroom.
Attorney Butland graduated Cum Laude earning his Juris Doctorate University of Massachusetts School of Law at Dartmouth. While there, Attorney Butland served in a variety of positions, including Staff Editor on the University of Massachusetts Law Review, and Head of Fundraising for the Criminal Law Society at the University of Massachusetts School of Law.
Attorney Butland’s experience with the University of Massachusetts Law Review led to writing a note on the efficacy of sex offender registration laws. Later, Attorney Butland co-authored an article analyzing the state of modern cyber piracy, which was published by the University of Massachusetts Law Review. The Article analyzed the history of copyright protection leading into the digital age, the political schism that has formed regarding copyright protection policy, and speculated as to the advent of yet newer forms of piracy as 3-D printing technologies become more common place.
Attorney Butland is licensed to practice law in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
