My go-to for family and estate law needs
I have worked with Attorney Nicole Reeves Lavallee and more recently with Attorney Demian Tebaldi and had an excellent experience each time I have engaged the firm. Attorney Lavallee handled my divorce in an efficient and cost-effective manner, and Attorney Tebaldi prepared a complete estate plan for me and my current spouse. I highly recommend the services of this firm.

Attorney Demian Tebaldi
I worked with Attorney Demian Tebaldi on my real estate-related issues and he was absolutely incredible. It was an urgent and time-sensitive request and he understood the unique nature of the situation and resolved it in less than 15 minutes. He went above and beyond and was able to resolve the issue in 4 days. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much!

Working with the Reeves Lavallee Lawfirm
The one statement that made me choose the Reeves Lavallee lawfirm was a phrase in their website where they defend men's rights. Of course, they represent both genders, but it is my opinion that men carry a bigger weight since we are the ones who do not always inititate the divorce. So, this phrase meant a lot to me because it was necessary for this lawfirm to show that we both will be equally represented regardless of who started the divorce. Every divorce is complex and we all have huge stories to convey about what and why the marriage took a wrong turn, and it was often my concern that there was too much to remember. If they can't remember the intricacies of the marriage, then this is a risk. My attorney, Mr. Demian Tebaldi and our paralegal Mr. Shawn Ilinitch, were supportive every step of the way. They sorted out the complex story, separated what is needed from what isn't, and in the end delivered an outcome I was happy with. A divorce can be quite emotional, but Mr. Tebaldi exercised the proper level of control to remind me that what is important, and most especially the goal, has not been forgotten or dismissed. This reinforced my beliefs in this lawfirm's capabilities and I would recommend them if anyone were to ask.

Greatest Civil Attorney east of the Missippi !!!
Attorney Reeves Lavallee has a love for law and a appetite for results. Attorney Reeves Lavallee was hired in a Civil matter, that had dire penalties, however Ms. Reeves Lavallee wrestled long and tirelessly. Attorney Reeves Lavallee dispenses a courageous tone and no-nonsense approach to her work. She is very well sophisticated in law, and her colleagues, judges she interacts with daily, respect deeply her credibility, persistence and work ethic. Attorney Reeves Lavallee is the lawyer you will want by your side, when your hands are quivering, and the sweat is pouring down your face. When your knees become weak, your voice crackles, a sudden feel of a loss of oxygen and then, BAM! Attorney Reeves Lavallee DELIVERS! Aligned for Excellence. You above all.

Grandparents Rights
Without Nicole I don't know where I would be emotionally today. After years of hiring numerous high priced attorney's without anything to show for what we had to spend, I decided to reach out to Nicole for some justice....what we received was just that JUSTICE after 10 long years fighting our way through the judicial system. She and her staff had my back from the get go! Her professional knowledge and support for what I was fighting for, was of the utmost importance to her. She never let me down. During the long emotional process she guided me with her expertise and when the time came, when what I needed to accomplish was not her forte', she referred me to another top notch attorney who in turn represented me in Appellate Court and was able to overturn the injustice that I received in Probate Court! Nicole was eager and able to pick up right where we left off and we continued the fight and won!!! We made Case Law! Without her I would not be enjoying my granddaughter today...my only grandchild after the tragic death of my daughter. Thank you Nicole...I will never forget what you have done for me and my family AND my granddaughter! You're the BEST!!!

Human being first Genuinely cares
I'm in Florida and had gone through a terrible a divorce in Massachusetts. 11 years on I'm still dealing with my very tempestuous Ex who hauls me back to court every time she feels like. I had been to court (in Massachusetts) so many times that it had become quite expensive to fly back and forth and also pay attorney fees. So I opted to represent myself for a while. However, after a recent hearing things began going sideways and I decided to start looking for an attorney once again. I ended up on this site and after reading a few reviews I started making phone calls. Of all the 5 or 6 attorneys I called, Nicole is the only one who actually took the time to speak to me on the spot. I was a little nervous due to what just transpired in court and anyone else would have taken advantage and made it worse just to sign up a new client. Nicole Did Not! She took her (valuable) time to explain everything in detail and also lay out some scenarios. At the end of the call I was much calmer and understood everything. To think that she did that on a phone call, that 1. she didn't have to take and 2. wasn't getting paid for 3. Didn't judge or talk down Is the exact reason I'll be hiring her as my attorney - and so should you! we go through life hoping we don't need an attorney but if you ever I would definitely recommend Nicole.

Awesome, knowledgeable and respected Attorney
Nicole has handled many different issues for us. The last was a real estate transaction where the buyers attorney was dragging their feet. She pushed them along (as well as us!) for a speedy conclusion. She also did some legwork that should have been done by a different attorney, at no extra cost. She is very thorough and her advice should be heeded. She handled a family court issue for a relative that I referred to her. It was very emotional for my relative and she was proactive and was able to provide the right guidance and attended the court hearing with a wonderfully positive outcome. Through the whole ordeal, she never once even hinted to me that she was even representing my relative. All her cases are confidential as they should be and she is very discreet. Nicole is the one lawyer I trust and seek her out for advice on any legal issues.

Amazing...most helpful lawyer and very affordable!!!!
Nicole is an attorney that is extremely knowledgable. She kept me very informed and made sure I understood everything that was going on and guided me through every step of the way. I had hired a few lawyers prior to her and spent thousands over a few years. Nicole had more accomplished in WEEKS than they ever had at a reasonable cost as well. She is absolutely amazing and has such compassion for her work and clients. I highly recommend her!!!!!!

For attorneys Nicole Reeves Lavallee is the best!!!
She did a great job from begining to end. I was much more at ease knowing that she was in my corner fighting for me. She is knowledgable and says it like it is. I have been extremely pleased and have retained her services on a few occasions. I have recommended her services to family, friends and co-workers whom also have had similar experiences with her legal services. If you are in need of a great attorney, call Nicole Reeves Lavallee.

disappointed
I reached out to Reeves Lavallee work with Atty Lavalle. I was assigned a junior associate. My case was probably deemed a loser (not profitable) and thus given to a junior associate whom I did not know and wasn't a part of any of the research I had done about lawyers in Worcester, MA before reaching out to this firm. The attorney assigned to me didn't make the one core argument in my family law case that my circumstance depended upon. But, they were able to skillfully invoice just about up to the same amount of the retainer before I realized the game and decided to pull the plug. In our hearing -a zoom call- the attorneys (including Atty. Lavalle) couldn't even get their own video conferencing equipment in their own conference room to work properly. $3,000 of the easiest dollars they ever made. The paralegal was fine. I don't know who in that firm decided to use Tammy Wynette's famous song: "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" as their telephone hold music.... I think it's worth a re-think.
