  • Patrick G. Curley

    I have served as a volunteer Board member on the Board of Directors of MassNAELA (an elder law professional association with roughly 500 attorney members in Massachusetts). She has also taught a couple of seminars I have attended. Paula has many years of elder law experience and uses that knowledge to serve her clients incredibly well. She is a tireless advocate for elders and those with special needs. She knows the government system and available benefits programs in and out, and fights to ensure that her clients achieve the best possible results to ensure that they can achieve the highest quality of life in the future. I enjoy discussing challenging legal issues with Paula and I value her input. I heartily recommend and endorse Paula.
