About Me

Ms. Wilson received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Environmental Policy from American University and Juris Doctor from the George Washington University Law School. Following graduation, she practiced at Howrey, LLP in Washington, DC and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, & Flom, LLP in Boston, MA.

 

Tara went on to found a family-focused boutique law firm specializing in estate and small business planning helping parents organize their affairs to protect their investments and provide for their loved ones. As a staunch advocate of pro bono legal service, she also volunteers in the Massachusetts Trial Courts as a mediator and advisor in the Probate Court and has established a pro bono clinic serving mothers in northeast Massachusetts.  She is currently on the Board of Directors for the Professional Center for Child Development, a Massachusetts non-profit corporation providing early intervention and therapeutic services to over 1400 children, and is the Executive Board Legal Advisor for The Mother Connection, Inc., a non-profit organization serving over 500 families in the Merrimack Valley.  


As a result of these accomplishments and commitments, Tara received a nomination for the "Top Women of Law" award from Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2013 and 2014.  In addition, Tara is regularly sought out by various media for her expertise and contributes articles focused on estate planning, financial matters, small business issues, and parenting.  Tara has been quoted in Forbes, CNBC, and Woman's Day.
