The best!
I cannot recommend this team enough! Sean Hagen was recommended to me by a co-worker and we worked closely with him for our will and estate planning needs. What can be a very daunting process was made very easy by Sean and his team. He explained every option in detail, took into consideration what we were looking for and was just a pleasure to work with! We left feeling very comfortable that if we have any questions or changes in the future, he will be there to help and to walk us through it all. Very impressed with how smooth the entire process was- and can't thank Sean enough for that!

The right guy for the job!
Sean is wonderfully comfortable to work with. His humor and calm presence make difficult decisions easier. He is never pushy or critical but understanding and pleased to help explain elements of the process. We are appreciative and confident we're working with a team who will be sure to cover every base and leave us feeling secure in our decisions.

Highly Recommend
Sean Hagan and LHH Legal were great to work with. They made the whole process of creating an estate plan and wills simple and transparent. Very friendly and easy to talk with even when discussing such heavy topics. It's amazing the things you don't know about what really happens to your assets after you are gone until someone explains them to you. I Highly recommend them for your estate plan, will or trust.

Highly Recommend
My husband and I decided our 35 year old will needed updating and were unsure if a living trust was our best option. Sean clearly explained our options and worked with us through the process of establishing a living trust. His patience, expertise, clear explanations and easy manner made him a pleasure to work with. We made the right decision choosing to work with Sean and his team and highly recommend Long Hagan Huff-Harris!

Made our estate planning easy and stress-free
Sean, James, and their team did a great job setting us up with a complete estate plan. They walked us through the process, carefully explained all of our options (including several that we had been unaware of), and did thorough and accurate work. They were friendly and attentive during the entire process, and made everything easy for us. We're recommending them to our family and friends.

Family Estate Plan
My wife and I could not have been happier with the thought provoking insight that Sean provided in helping us navigate our estate plan. We had to make some tough decisions and in the end we are confident we have the right pan for our family should the worst happen. Thanks again Sean and the LHH team!

Estate Plan
We watched a Zoom presentation by Sean at the Kingston Library and decided to use his services for our trust as the office was nearby. We are very pleased with the end result, and after all the communications back and forth with everyone in the office, we felt we made the best decision on hiring the firm. Everyone was pleasant and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend his firm to work with.

Highly recommend!
One of the more uncomfortable things to face as we age is making sure, in the event of death, that our survivors aren’t faced with more challenges and costs than need be in carrying out our last wishes. And, for many of us, especially if complicated family relationships have developed over the years, the idea of seeking out a lawyer to review/update our estate plan is something that’s a lot easier to just keep putting off until some vague future date. In the case of Sean Hagan and his staff, I would say do not wait. It is a tremendous relief knowing your attorney is not only knowledgeable in estate planning but is one who takes the time to actually understand your situation and to help you wade through the options available and their impact on your family. Sean is all of that and more … plus he and his staff are just really nice people! I felt very much a part of the entire process, very comfortable asking even the smallest of questions, and am very, very pleased with the result. Highly recommend!

Pleasure working with Sean Hagan
My wife and I have been working with Sean Hagan from Long Hagan Huff-Harris on and off over the last few years. We started working together on a single project of limited scope and were so pleased with the experience we have expanded the scope of work with the firm to include personal estate planning and legal work for several businesses my wife and I each own. It's been a pleasure working with Sean and we would highly recommend the firm to our friends, family and colleagues.

Very helpful and thorough!
Sean was a wonderful choice to help my wife and I put together our estate. Sean and his team took a daunting task and helped each step of the way. He was quick to respond to questions and broke things down in a way that helps me- a lay person to legal vocabulary understand them. I would highly recommend Sean and his team to anyone.

Estate Plan
After putting it off for a long time, I’m breathing a sigh of relief at having finally finished and signed my will. I chose Sean Hagan - with Long Hagan Huff-Harris - to represent me. Sean had been highly recommended by a neighbor, and he did not disappoint. We met face-to-face and also spoke on the phone and emailed back and forth many times. The biggest issue for me revolved around how to allocate my assets. I’ve lost count of the number of times I revised my working sheet. Every time I told him, OK, go ahead and draft the papers, this time my decision is final, I’d find myself contacting him within a few days because I had changed my mind. This see-sawing back and forth resulted from the disparity between what I wanted to leave my loved ones and the limited size of my estate. And it took me many months to make what I consider to be the best possible decision. From the very beginning, I was impressed by Sean’s professionalism and depth of knowledge of estate law. At our first meeting, I had a sense of what I wanted to accomplish and therefore posed a wide range of questions to him. Likewise, he did a very thorough job of posing as many to me. He wanted to know what I wanted, so he could craft a document that would mirror my wishes while simultaneously being legally sound and airtight. One of the great advantages I had in working with Sean was his familiarity with co-ops. Co-ops are not common in Massachusetts and they therefore pose a number of challenges for lawyers that are very different than, for instance, those posed by condos. Thankfully, he understands co-op structures well, and was able to act accordingly. I’m happy to say that the nearly 200-page document he produced is one with which I am completely satisfied. Likewise, I’m equally satisfied with Sean and his team. His courteous and patient demeanor - coupled with his sage advise - helped me to see my concerns from different perspectives, and at the same time, provided me with the breathing room I needed to work things out for myself. I can’t recommend Sean Hagan highly enough; he is a true professional - knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate. And I think that anyone that chooses him as their attorney, will be very pleased indeed, with the results.

Great Estate Planning
We're a local Roslindale family and we felt confident and at ease planning our estate with Long Hagan Huff-Harris. Neighborhood-lawyer feel with resources of a larger firm. Fair pricing and quick to respond to phone calls and emails.
