As your attorney, Attorney Annmarie Roark can assist you in the arrangement of your estate to pass efficiently to beneficiaries with a minimum of court intervention. This benefits you since less court involvement means less administration costs during the probate legal process. As a Massachusetts licensed insurance producer, she can also advise on the appropriate life insurance, long-term care and supplemental insurance coverage, and evaluate existing policies.

She can advise on the suitability and process guardianships and conservatorships for the elderly, minors or the disabled, and can help identify and address elder abuse and fraud.

She can provide protection against a creditor's claim through the timely election of the homestead right provided under the Massachusetts homestead law. She knows that while most clients can benefit from this protection, many are unaware of the availability of this protection.

Living Will, Trust
I lost my wife in Nov. and it was a wake up call. So I located Roark Law on line and had a meeting with Ann Marie before the meeting was over I already knew that this is the person to set up my trust. She was very professional and caring and knew exactly what I needed. She set up the Trust, a living will, and homestead, plus more. I was very impressed on how it was all put together for me and I would highly recommend Annmarie and Roark law office. Thank you!

She's my attorney! She should be yours, too!
One of the most professional, honest, direct, sincere, and skilled individuals I have ever met in life. During/following our first visit, I questioned myself, and wondered why I was there, and thought Annemarie was a bit "gruff." She was at times; however my situation was painful, & she made me a stronger individual as I opted to go forward and have her handle my case. She is extremely smart, very direct, instructs, guides, and tells you just what's going to be, how she's going to get there, and what the expected outcome might be. I could not have resolved my issue, without Annemarie's extensive background and experience. She knows her "stuff!" She will get the job, done, and she will do her very best for you. I strongly urge you to consider her for our individual needs. I will be back for future guidance involving Wills, Trusts, etc, and I have no doubt in my mind, I will "all set" at the end of it all, with Annemarie at the helm.

Very Professional & Personable
My husband & I met w/Ms. Roark about planning our estate. She was very honest (blunt in fact, but not in a bad way) and helpful. We will be using her for our wills & trusts. She was recommended by a friend who had been pleased with her services. I'd recommend her without reservation, she knows her stuff.
