The law firm of Delaney & Muncey was founded in 1985 in Plymouth, Massachusetts by David L. Delaney, Kathleen P. Muncey and Peter N. Muncey, Jr. for the purpose of providing professional legal services in the areas of real estate and estate planning.
David L. Delaney began practicing law in Plymouth in 1972. After countless hours spent at the nearby Plymouth County Registry of Deeds during the early years of his career, he developed a thorough knowledge of titles and their relationship with the development process which provides depth for his main areas of practice today in land use planning and permitting and real estate litigation.
Kathleen P. Muncey shares a similar title based background. She worked as a title examiner during law school and beyond. Her practice now is devoted almost exclusively to real estate related matters including residential and commercial real estate transactions. She has developed a particular expertise in resolving title issues involving missing interests. Both Mr. Delaney and Mrs. Muncey are experienced Land Court title examiners and effectively represent a broad client base ranging from local businesses to national corporations, first time home buyers to real estate developers, and small charitable concerns to large lending institutions.
Peter N. Muncey, Jr. brings balance to the real estate bent of the firm by practicing and providing services in the areas of estate planning and settlement and elder law. He started his career in 1982 by working for respected area estate planner Charles H. Randall, Jr., Esq. whose tutelage and guidance proved invaluable. Over the years, Mr. Muncey’s client base has grown by referrals from clients, other attorneys and trust officers. He has a well deserved reputation among his clients and peers for commitment, professionalism and prompt, efficient service. His clients range from those of modest means to the very wealthy, but all are afforded the same high degree of care and attendance to their specific needs.
Over the years Delaney & Muncey has been able to provide client continuity for many distinguished area attorneys including Charles H. Randall, Jr., Gerald Galassi, Esq., Robert M. Briggs, Esq., and Frederick J. Sheehan, Esq. Each entrusted their files to the firm as they approached retirement so that their clients would have competent legal advice readily available if the need arose.
To better serve our clients and meet their diverse needs, Delaney & Muncey has selectively expanded its staff to offer a wider range of legal services.
Kathleen M. Mulvey joined the firm in 2002 with a background as a registered nurse which provides a deeper understanding of medical needs that often arise in the guardianship and conservatorship matters she handles. Before joining us Ms. Mulvey worked as a law clerk for the Justices of the Probate Court. In addition to guardianship/conservatorship matters Ms. Mulvey focuses her practice on probate/estate matters, Medicaid/Masshealth planning/applications and estate planning.
Bryan E. Fecteau came on board in 2006 after practicing corporate law with a large Boston firm for the first five years of his career. Mr. Fecteau handles matters in business succession planning, corporate law and business transactions, and also handles estate planning and estate settlement matters for our clients.
Joseph J. Coppola joined Delaney & Muncey in July, 2007 with over 12 years of diverse litigation experience. Since joining the firm, Mr. Coppola has continued to focus his practice in litigation, concentrating on those cases that arise in the context of business, construction, real estate, zoning or the probating of estates. In addition, Mr. Coppola regularly represents the firm's business and individual clients in the areas of landlord/tenant, consumer protection, personal injury and property damage, both in the defense and prosecution of such claims.
Since 1985 and until recently the firm’s offices were located in historic downtown Plymouth, with a satellite office in Weymouth. To accommodate growth, Delaney & Muncey moved and consolidated their offices in 2004-2005 and now occupy the third floor of 38 Resnik Road, Plymouth, a new office building in the heart of Plymouth’s Industrial Park. This modern suite of offices is easily accessed from highways or local roads, is handicap accessible and has ample on site free parking. With a nod to the firm’s beginnings in historic downtown Plymouth, the welcoming reception area at our new facility is appointed with framed vintage photographs of Plymouth and surrounding towns. Clients enjoy guessing the locations depicted in these photographs and noting the changes and similarities to modern day.
