Attorney O'Connell Is an extraordinary person. She knows the system, the law, and how to best minimize both emotional and financial impact to her client! She kept me informed and educated every step of the way!
I know I was 'guided' to this person for help and closure of my mother's estate. No other lawyer would even bother to show 'genuine' compassion and understanding for his/her client.
With no referrals because we live thousands of miles away, and sight unseen, my daughter and I met up with Ms. O'Connell for an initial consultation. We were guided step by step even at that first consult!
Because of her down to earth and extreme patience, I knew what needed to be done and how it would be done, before we even signed anything! I was so relieved about the strange process and Massachusetts laws.
What a relief and Godsend Ms. O'Connell has been for us.
You may go to a big law firm and get one of their specialized staff attorneys and be lost in their system, especially if you aren't a 'high roller' client.
This is Not so with Ms. O'Connell.
She is 'professionally personal'!
Even at her own sacrifice of time and (with me) extreme patience.
I don't know ANYONE who could truly say that their lawyer was as genuinely concerned with the emotional AND financial impact of estate/probate planning is to their clients!
I know Ms. O'Connell sacrificed her own personal time and energies, above and beyond all that fine print in a contract! I will forever be grateful.
My wife and I wanted to create an estate plan to protect our young family in the event of an emergency and after a little searching online came upon Tiffany. We had an initial complimentary face-to-face meeting to discuss our situation and afterwards decided to continue working with Tiffany and trusting her to take care of us. Simply put she was amazing. Thorough, gregarious, and extremely informative, Tiffany far exceeded our expectations and made the entire estate planning process an enjoyable one. Each meeting we had with Tiffany not only further solidified our estate plan but it also educated us on the nuances of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney without ever feeling takled down to. It never felt like Tiffany was trying to sell us anything, rather she wanted to ensure that our priorities were met for as little money as possible. Furthermore each meeting ran over time which wasn't a problem for Tiffany or us because we were eager to learn, and just goes to show her commitment to her clients and taking care of their needs.
I would absolutley recommend Tiffany to anyone looking to secure their family's future, particularly young couples that aren't sure exactly what to do but know that they should do something. She will educate you without preaching and then ensure that everything makes sense before going forward. We had a great experience with her and will most certainly continue to work with her in the future.
Tiffany helped me tremendously in handling my brother's estate, who died suddenly under tragic circumstances. She was recommended by a friend, at the time when I was desperately looking for someone to guide me through the intricacies of the probate process. Circumstances notwithstanding, I could not have been more pleased. Since our first meeting, I felt I was in good hands. Tiffany is incredibly engaging and warm, clearly possessing undeniable expertise in matters of probate administration and accounting. She assisted me throughout the entire process, at times tedious and quite complex, always being mindful of cost-efficient alternatives. She is a pleasure to work with, and I recommend her wholeheartedly.
When you want someone who can explain the complexity of estate planning and then walk you through it as if it is as simple as making a cup of instant coffee, Tiffany is the person to seek out. We had Tiffany update our estate and will. Who knew that after 8 years so much had changed? Our previous attorney never bothered to contact us or keep us informed of changes in the laws and tax codes. Tiffany redid our estate and will giving us peace of mind that we will never grow stale and that our family is well cared for. She is a dream to work with and her team will hand hold you through the process.
Tiffany was reliable, sympathetic, thoughtful and informative. She kept my interests and needs a priority during the entire process and was professional and accessible as well.
