Greta LaMountain Biagi (pronounced “BEE-AH-JEE”) was born in western Massachusetts and has spent most of her life in the Amherst area. She spent 13 years in Boston, where she graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor Degree in Vocal Performance then received her Law Degree from Boston College Law School. Between degrees, she worked primarily in business but always kept her community in mind, doing volunteer work for numerous service organizations over the years. Attorney Biagi entered the legal field because she felt driven to work with people and to help them find real solutions to their legal needs. Before starting her own practice, she practiced at two local firms where she was able to hone her varied legal skills under the supervision of numerous experienced mentors.
Whether dealing with business owners or individuals, Attorney Biagi is committed to really listening to her clients and providing a truly individualized approach to each situation as it presents itself. Her emphasis is always on providing a human touch and on giving advice with professionalism and compassion, explaining the legal process and answering questions as understandably as possible.
Attorney Biagi is now a general practitioner with a particular focus on residential and commercial real estate transactions and financial matters, including Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies, student loan repayment plans, and debt negotiation where filing for bankruptcy protection may not be the best option. Her practice also includes small business formation and representation, and simple estate planning. Attorney Biagi has represented business and individual clients in zoning appeals matters and has defended business clients in matters surrounding complaints and prosecutions with state agencies such as the Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure. She also has appeared regularly in court representing both plaintiffs and defendants in both pre- and post-judgment proceedings and has experience in estate planning, probate and family law.
Attorney Biagi is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts and Connecticut in the State, District and Bankruptcy Courts. She is a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association, Hampshire County Bar Association and National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy (NACBA). She is a member of the Amherst Rotary Club, Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, and sits on the Board of Directors of Stavros Center for Independent Living, Inc. She has been an MBA panelist discussing Bankruptcy issues and practice, as well as a panelist at Boston College Law School discussing career paths for attorneys.
In 2015, Attorney Biagi was honored by NACBA with the “K. Colleen Nunnelly Award”, which was created “to honor a NACBA member whose collegiality and support for NACBA’s mission embodies Colleen’s spirit, quiet leadership, enthusiasm, and positive contributions to NACBA”.
