    • I recommend Michael O'Brien.

    We worked with Michael and his staff in redoing outdated trust and will documents, as well incorporating issues raised by the prior generation's trusts. Added to the complication was the family buyout of an inherited vacation home held in trust. The staff was informative, cogent, responsive. Michael even came to our home for the initial consultation; issues were clearly explained; and final signing was expeditious. Terrific people to work with.

    • I recommend Michael O'Brien.

    The O'Brien law firm are not only extremely competent and efficient, but you are treated with respect and like family. Michael has done work for my family for years. He always shows concern for what ever the situation brings. Nothing is too big or to small. Michael formulates a plan, constantly keeps you updated on progress, and cost estimate is always spot on. This year has been a busy year for us in updating our trusts. Again, O'Brien law firm did not disappoint.

    Michael and his team are a pleasure to work with. They are obviously very competent - but better yet they listen well and are able to explain complex matters in a way that was understandable to us. It is comforting to know that they are and will be there for us. My spouse approves this review.
