Much of my practice is built around providing legal services to the residents of Southeastern Massachusetts. I also think it is crucial that your legal rights and personal wishes be honored during your lifetime and once you pass.
To that end, I specialize in helping to develop and administer estate plans including wills and trusts.
Older people are confronted with legal questions and issues that are far different than those encountered by their younger counterparts. That is why it is important to rely on an attorney with experience in the field of elder law, who not only knows the ins and outs of the profession, but who also has experience working with older clients. For me, working with these people is both a joy and a professional privilege. I also go the extra mile for my older clients, making home visits when necessary, and making my offices handicap-accessible.
I have that kind of experience, and I use it to help my clients with issues like:
• To ensure your wishes: From wills to trusts to power of attorneys and healthcare proxies we will ensure their wishes are fulfilled.
• Long-term care: Especially in this day and age, enjoying the fruits of your life’s labor is heavily dependent on planning ahead. Discussing and understanding your options - including living situation, finances, and health care options - is crucial to how much satisfaction you derive from your later years.
• Real estate: As you age, you may want to sell your old home and move to another region or into a smaller dwelling. Or you may be looking to refinance your current home. I offer advice and representation for real estate mortgages and reverse mortgages, as well as most other real estate transactions.
• Probate Issues: ASSISTING FAMILY MEMBERS IN GUARDIANSHIP AND CONSERVATIORSHIPS APPOINTMENTS, PROBATING OF ESTATES, AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE PROBATE COURT RULES.
