I hired Denise after having a poor experience with a lawyer that was recommended through family. My father had passed away without a will and I needed to become the representative of the estate. After waiting 4 months on the other lawyer and taking time off from work to travel to Massachusetts to meet with him I hired Denise. In less than 10 business days she had me appointed as the representative of the estate. I also had to go through probate court for a license to sell my father's home and she handled that process even faster. You always hear stories that Mass probate court is a nightmare but Denise made the process seem easy and seamless (although I am sure she had to jump through hoops to get everything done so quickly). We conducted everything via phone, email and mail. She made a very emotional and stressful process manageable.

Denise assisted me during a very confusing and frightening time. I never had a question go unanswered. She was patient with questions and anxieties about the case. She clearly outlined everything she was going to do and was able to follow through with it all. She seemed to genuinely care about the outcomes and how they would affect my family. She was able to advocate for me with the other lawyer and succeeded in getting my family what we needed in a divorce and custody agreement. I feel my case was not an easy one. I had many questions and was very anxious. Denise had a caring attitude, always listened, answered questions efficiently and helped me maintain a positive outlook because of her confidence, and professionalism. With this review, she comes to you highly recommended by a single mom. I received exactly what I needed and wanted.

I was going through a very confusing and scary time in my life. Everything just seemed to be falling apart and slipping out of my hands and I couldn't understand it. I contacted Denise because I heard she was someone who would not only be professional but also understanding and non-judgemental. She helped me through what was the most difficult time in my life and for that I have every reason to thank her for as long as I live. I would recommend Denise in a heart beat to anyone who may need family law counseling.

I wanted my money and assests protected and needed assistance in understand the best way to do so. Denise was very helpful in understanding my situation and what I needed done. She wasn't just caring but also committed in seeing that I receive the best service possible. I owe her many thanks in regards to the Trust and Will she helped set up for me. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Denise was of great help when i needed it most. I didn't know anything about Estate Planning, how a Trust worked, or how to correctly obtain a Will. At my age, widowed, and living off of my retirement I wanted to make sure that I would be treated with respect and that I could trust a lawyer with all my personal information. I did not want be taken advantage of because of my age and my apathy to these legal matters. Denise was kind, knowledgable, and a great teacher. It is because of her that I feel comfortable and safe with how and where my life is planned for right now and my future. Thank you Denise!

Denise handled my living will. When it comes to the most important issues like who is going to care for your kids and estate if something ever happened to you. You want the most reliable and informed attorney you can find and that's what I got with Denise. She is fast and thorough and is always looking out for your best benefit. Denise is also an incredible person as well. I would recommend her to family, friends, and anyone who is in need of an excellent attorney.

I felt Attorney Kent was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and approachable. Attorney Kent put a personal touch on a very private and difficult time in my life. She is kind, and very respectful of all matters.

Attorney Kent has assisted me with a couple of matters recently. First, I had a major problem with a large, well-known bank, an issue that was costing me sleep, not to mention thousands of dollars. At the time, I was beyond stressed, and unable to get anywhere with the issue on my own. I found a sympathetic ear and quick response to my problem when I consulted with her.
I also needed help with another matter, dealing with an elderly family member who needed some oversight and possibly a guardianship. Once again, I was impressed with Denise’s knowledge, empathy, and quick response. I highly recommend her to my family and friends, and am happy to have someone that I know I can trust when life throws me legal curveballs!
