    Margot is a smart and caring elder law and estate planning attorney, always going above and beyond to get the best result for her clients. She is also a very active member of the Massachusetts Chapter of NAELA, advocating for the rights of seniors and those with special needs in the Commonwealth. I highly recommend Margot for elder law and estate planning.
