Review Harry Margolis

About Me

I've been practicing estate planning with a special emphasis on elder law and the planning for individuals with special needs since 1987.  Our six-lawyer firm is based in Boston, but we have satellite offices in Dedham, Framingham and Woburn, since we recognize that many clients don't like traveling into the city. 


We seek two goals in our practice: providing the best legal representation available in our areas of expertise and taking care of our clients in a way that meets their needs.  We pride ourselves in our service to clients and in finding solutions that may not be apparent to attorneys with less experience in elder law and special needs planning.
