    I have worked with Audrey on several Probate Court matters in which she was appointed as Guardian ad Litem to represent an incapacitated interested party, and served with her as a fellow MassNAELA Board member. Audrey is exceptionally knowledgeable in the areas of Estate Planning and Elder Law. Her GAL reports are by far the most comprehensive and well researched GAL reports I have seen. At a recent hearing, the Probate Court judge said in the Courtroom that he had read Audrey's report from start to finish and that he wished all GALs prepared reports of this caliber and quality. Beyond her expertise, Audrey is respectful, compassionate and friendly. Those are qualities that unfortunately are not found in many attorneys. Because Estate Planning and Elder Law can involve complex material and stressful family situations, Audrey's personality is a tremendous benefit to her clients. I unequivocally recommend and endorse Audrey.
