About me

Practicing estate planning and probate really suits my personality style - I love to help people "figure things out" and balance the pros and cons of a particular situation to make the best decision possible.


I also strive to be a source of comfort to friends and family, and am greatly satisfied to be able to do that in my professional life as well, helping people get estate planning off their "mental list" and giving them the peace of mind that comes from having the proper estate planning documents in place; and helping families deal with the loss of a loved one by assisting them in navigating the technical and legal details that come up at that time.


When I'm not working, I enjoy music - listening, playing and writing. I am a singer/songwriter/pianist and love sharing songs with friends and family.


I live in Brookline and love the Boston area.

  • Elizabeth Brody Gluck

    I wholeheartedly endorse Robin Gorenberg's work in the area of estate planning. I have practiced law in the Boston area for close to 20 years, and I have sent Robin a number of clients over that timespan. To a person, the clients have raved about Robin's expertise, manner, and efficiency. Her work is superb, and she has a knack for explaining complex concepts in a way that is readily understandable to the layperson. She is professional and personable, and I recommend her to anyone looking for estate planning advice and counsel.
