Family Law Since 1967
Stone, Stone & Creem
Our History

Stone, Stone & Creem has been a family run law firm for over sixty years. The founding partner, Jacob Stone, graduated Northeastern University School of Law in 1933 and began practicing law on Milk Street in downtown Boston. He was frequently appointed a Master in Chancellery and developed a general practice with an emphasis on family law, probate and real estate. During the early years of his practice, he shared space with a group of lawyers that included another attorney by the name of George Silton. Attorney Silton introduce Jacob to his sister, Ida who had recently graduated Boston University School of Law in 1937. At the time of her graduation, Ida was one of five women in her law school class. Ida and Jacob were married on December 21, 1941 and after their honeymoon, the couple returned to Boston and together began to practice law.

While Jacob enlisted in the Army during World War II, Ida was left in charge of maintaining the practices of both her brother and husband. After the war ended Jacob and Ida joined forces and practiced together until Jacob died in March of 1985. The couple had two children, Cynthia who joined the practice in 1966 when the firm name was changed to Stone, Stone & Creem. Their other daughter, Gayle, joined the firm in 1980. Ida and her daughters continued to practice together until she passed away in 1998.

Sisters, Cindy and Gayle have been determined to keep up the family legacy and have been in practice together for almost thirty years. As did their Father, the sisters still continue to specialize in the areas of Family law, Probate and Real Estate.
