The firm will focus on real estate transactions and title examination, land disputes, land conservation and family land planning, business formation, estate planning, probate practice and general litigation.

Crockett and Siegel are renovating the Young House at 63 Main St., which previously housed Erin’s Cafe. The attorneys will operate at their 14 Main St. office for January until the improvements are complete.

He is a founder and former board chairman of the Mahoosuc Land Trust and has served as a member of the Gould Academy board of trustees. He and his wife and their two children are avid outdoor recreationists.

Also joining the new firm is Carol Bourque, who has worked as a paralegal for Crockett and Siegel in their Bethel office for two years, following a 32-year career in the legal department at John Hancock Financial Services in Boston.
