Trust & estate planning services
Margaret was recommended to us. She did a wonderful job helping us understand all the aspects of estate planning. She facilitated setting up a family trust and all the required legal documents in a very thorough manner.

Trust Planning
When I first contacted Margaret Cross, I received a return call the next day. From our first conversation, I felt extremely comfortable. When we first met to discuss my Trust, I knew I made the right choice. Margaret was extremely welcoming and her knowledge of this area was obvious. Margaret was an amazing, patient, confident and competent guide throughout this process. She is a great listener and her expertise was quite evident. I would highly recommend Attorney Margaret Cross.

Margaret has represented me in the past, dealing with issues of estate planning and real estate. She helped set up our homestead, a will, and other estate needs, and helped me understand why each was needed. I would definitely recommend Margaret.

Estate Planning
Margaret and her team at Beliveau Law Group recently helped my wife and I create our first estate plan. She took the time to answer our questions and explain the different options available to us. She was very knowledgeable when it came to probate, trust, and tax considerations. She provided us with a Will, Living Will, Healthcare Proxy, Power of Attorney, and HIPAA privacy documents. We would recommend Margaret without reservation.

Elder Care Issues
Very knowledgable about MA elder care issues and estate issues. Needed her advice on my 86 year old mother's situation, and also advice on a distribution from a trust to a relative.

Estate planning
Margaret was so helpful in planning our will and other documents. She is a true professional and great to work with. She explained very carefully the contents of each document to make sure we understood them. It is not often you feel this comfortable with an attorney. We would contact her again with out reservation.

Estate planning Attorney | Dec 07
Relationship: Co-worker
"I worked closely with Attorney Margaret Cross for almost four years and found her to be highly experienced, intelligent, hard-working, helpful and compassionate. She is extremely knowledgeable in the area of trusts and estates and strives to keep herself educated on new developments in the law. While working together, she was the "expert" everyone turned to with questions and/or concerns, including myself, and regardless of how busy she was, she always made time to help. She is one of the most creative attorneys I know in analyzing legal issues and applying her vast technical knowledge. Clients find her to be trust-worthy, compassionate, caring and straight-forward. I personally give Attorney Cross my highest endorsement."

She has always struck me as knowledgeable and to the point. She has a gift for making complex legal matters simple. She doesn't say what she doesn't know. I trust her knowledge of the law and her motiviations on behalf of her clients. She is personable, knowledgeable, and dedicated. In short, she is everything I would want in a lawyer. I wholeheartedly endorse her."
