About me

I am the founder of the Law Office of Karol Bisbee, PC with locations in North Andover and Stoneham Massachusetts.  My passion is working with seniors and their families to plan for the future, to address a crises and to bring a sense of relief that they have put their affairs in order- protecting themselves and their families.  Medicaid Planning is complex and families have appreciated the hands on assistance we provide.   


     My clients often share what is happening in my life when it comes to travel which I thoroughly enjoy and they give me ideas on where to eat, what to see and their experiences.  We form not only a legal relationship but a friendship.  We also share ideas on my other passions of gardening and cooking




    I am a Registered Nurse and a former nursing home administrator.  Using the skills from these careers for the benefit of my clients has been very rewarding and beneficial for me and the families I work with.




    Hugs, laughs and smiles are as much a part of my professional workday as the dispensing of legal information.  Education of my clients and the community is a high priority in my practice.  In addition, I beleive in giving back to the community and therefore I offer a free legal clinic at two of my local Senior Centers once a month.

    Karol is a smart and caring elder law and estate planning attorney, always going above and beyond to get the best result for her clients. In addition, she is a very active member of the Massachusetts Chapter of NAELA, advocating for the rights of seniors and those with special needs in the Commonwealth. I highly recommend Karol for elder law and estate planning.
