Christopher T. Lilly

Attorney Christopher Lilly stands as the third generation in his family to practice law in the area. His Grandfather was Richard T. Lilly, who served as clerk-magistrate in the Ayer District Court from the 1930’s to 1959. His father is Thomas E. Lilly, a well respected attorney who practiced law in Ayer from 1968 to 1999.

Christopher Lilly grew up in Groton, Massachusetts, attending Notre Dame High School in Fitchburg. He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Boston College, and earned his Juris Doctor at Boston College Law School in 1991.

After Law School, Attorney Lilly served for approximately six years as assistant district attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. Assigned to the Trial Division, he honed his skills as a trial attorney on numerous misdemeanors, moving on to increasingly serious felonies, and finally homicides. Additionally, he was a charter member of the Welfare Fraud Unit and tried one of the first welfare fraud cases in that Office.

From 1998 to 2007, Attorney Lilly maintained a law practice with Bowmar, Larkin Lilly & Barton, in Ayer Massachusetts. In 2007, he combined his practice with that of Lorden & Pastor, P.C. to create the firm of Lorden, Pastor & Lilly, P.C. Chris is a trial attorney and problem-solver who specializes in criminal and civil litigation. He handles OUI’s (Operating Under the Influence), divorces and a wide variety of matters involving allegations of criminal conduct or disputes with others.
