I am an Associate Attorney with over six years of experience in estate administration/probate and estate planning, and an Adjunct Professor at New England Law | Boston. Prior to joining Eckert Byrne, I worked in a general practice law firm, where I developed an extensive knowledge of the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code and estate planning. I have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds, involving complex financial and family dynamics.
I focus on estate planning, including trusts and all of the firm's Will-based plans, as well as the firm's estate administration (probate) cases. My professional hallmark is to not only provide exceptional representation, but also to provide service with compassion and clarity.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Attorney Kristin N. Gherlone has shown an extreme talent to zealously advocate for her clients. For someone who is relatively new to the Bar, she is completely adept at taking on the challenge of legal cases, no matter what they may be, analyzing the situation with clear legal knowledge, and bringing about a result that her clients feel comfortable with and truly are satisfied with. Furthermore, she has become especially educated in the fields of wills, estates and trusts. In the past year, she has drafted countless estate plans, probated estates and even navigated will contests. I have no problem recommending Attorney Gherlone as a phenomenal attorney that any client and/or attorney would feel lucky and comfortable to work with.
