    • I recommend Robert Deschene.
    • I hired Robert 1-3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Elder Law matter.

    Attorney Rob Deschene helped me through the process of obtaining Medicare benefits for my elderly mother. He understood the process and the timing of the application so that the benefits took effect before the Nursing home costs exhausted our limited resources. We set up a document for the Power of Attorney so that I could handle my mother's financial affairs. I found the circumstances surrounding my mother's health and financial situation very draining. Attorney Deschene was at all times supportive and calming through this difficult time for our family. This is not a process that you should try to go through on your own. I tried to place call after call to the people at Medicare/Mass Health and was on hold for extended periods of time and never did speak to a live representative. I knew at this point that I needed the help of someone who had experience in this area. We first learned about Mr. Deschene from reading several of his informative articles in our local newspaper on elder affairs and estate planning and my brother and I decided to call him to help with my mother's affairs. I have several friends who have elderly parents who are facing the same difficult decisions and I have not hesitated to recommend Rob to help them when the time comes.

    • Robert handled my Wills & Living Wills matter.

    We were very happy working with Robert Deschene. We had old wills that were very outdated and he helped us to rectify this. We had a very short timeline as our son was only available for a short time
    and he worked quickly and efficiently to have everything done for us on time. He explained everything to us and made it easy for us. We were put at ease and enjoyed the experience.

    I would highly recommend Robert Deschene. Preparing my will was long overdue. I thought the process would be daunting, but with his help and expertise it was a breeze. He had my beautifully bound copy to me in no time. When scheduling my appointment, Robert was very kind to accommodate my very busy schedule.

    Divorcing and relocating to another state, managing property settlements and emotions, I found this attorney online. His website was useful and the client testimonials strong. I didn't, know where to begin. Every step is explained on his website, and again in plain English at a long complementary meeting. He provided insight into my wishes and offered great ideas in areasI knew nothing about, like how to leave money in a trust for my brother,s children since he is mentally unable to manage it for them. By the end of that meeting he had ideas for steps I could take, and even provided a firm quote of his fees. A very complex thing became simple and within 2weeks I had my will, living will, trust documents complete and my important papers in order.

    He is also a careful listener and able to guide me through a complex process while helping me to understand it and providing calm and professional care to details. It feels
    Ike I took care of some serious business, and he took care with me.
