FAQ

 


1. Why Choose Us As Your Lawyers?

First, choose us for our experience and knowledge. With more than 50 years of combined legal practice, we are leading specialists in the area of estate planning and elder law.

Our attorneys and professional staff continue to expand our knowledge by actively participating in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the Massachusetts Chapter of NAELA, and the Massachusetts Bar Association.

Our firm offers a certified elder law attorney (one of just 19 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and an attorney with a Masters in Taxation Law degree (again, one of very few in the state that can claim this prestigious distinction).

Second, choose us for our teamwork. We work together to serve you better. Estate planning and elder law require a collaborative effort and you will be working with our team to best serve you. More importantly, we back each other up to ensure that an attorney is always available to address your legal emergencies.

Third, choose us for our commitment to communication and access. Communicating with clients is a top priority to us. We work with clients across Massachusetts and sometimes with adult children of seniors where the adult child is out of state or even out of the country. We have a secure server for ready email access, and we have harnessed scanning technology to best serve our clients.

We are able to respond to emergencies and conduct off-site conferences, including at clients’ homes, hospitals and nursing facilities.

Fourth, choose us for our trust and integrity. As a firm that began as a father and son team, and has now grown to three attorneys and five professional support staff, we provide our clients with an assurance of trust and integrity from our family to your family. Our reputation is known and respected throughout Wakefield, the North Shore, and beyond.

Fifth, choose us for our compassion and temperament. We treat every client with the utmost respect – never talking down or over anyone. We are compassionate, friendly attorneys who are fulfilled by helping people achieve solutions to their legal problems.

2. What Are Our Rates?

Our rates vary depending on the complexity and nature of your legal issues. At the conclusion of our initial consultation, we review the planning options that are available based upon your facts and goals and execute a detailed engagement agreement. Most of our planning is done on a flat, fixed fee basis so that you know upfront the exact total cost of the matter.

3. My Legal Concerns Are Highly Confidential And Private. Can I Be Sure This Information Stays Private?

Absolutely. Your confidences are protected by the attorney-client privilege. We will not share any information without your explicit approval and release (i.e., to talk with your accountant or financial adviser).

4. Do I Really Need A Lawyer?

If you have visited our website, the chances are that you did not get there by accident. The reality is that virtually everyone needs estate planning and elder law. The earlier that you plan, the more that we can achieve for you, including asset protection.

The law has become so complex in the last few decades that nonlawyers expose themselves to considerable risk by proceeding forward without legal advice.

By visiting for an initial consultation you have nothing to lose. You will learn the facts and legal issues relevant to your case so that you can make an informed decision on how to proceed. Imagine the peace of mind of knowing that you have made an informed decision with regard to achieving your goals.
