I am a Justice of the Peace for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. My commission was issued as one of the Justices of the Peace for the Town of Southborough. This allows me to officiate for your special day anywhere within the Commonwealth.

My husband and I are thrilled to have worked with Mike on our wedding! We got married in October during the height of the pandemic, and Mike was the easiest person to work with during a very stressful process. He was patient and flexible as we changed our plans from a Boston ceremony at night to a back yard ceremony during the day. He listened to what we wanted and made thoughtful/knowledgeable recommendations when we needed them. Our ceremony turned out so special and personal. We highly recommend Mike!Sent on 03/20/2021

Jp Michael backer did a great job in preparation for the wedding. We had meetings and constant emails back and forth on how the event will go. He was very organized on top of everything and the ending result on the day of the wedding was excellent. Thank you Jp mike!Sent on 06/15/2013

Professional, Friendly and Welcoming
Mike was excellent and easy to work with, he was flexible with scheduling time. We asked Mike to provide us with traditional wedding vows what we got was more than expected, loving, warm and the just right amount of light heartedness. I highly recommend JP Mike for your wedding.Sent on 01/27/2021
