Dorothy Bickford, an attorney with Badger Law Group in Boston, embodies the word professional in every possible way. Recommended to me by two of my lawyer friends who have great respect for her work, Dorothy has proved to be a treasured adviser, trusted confidante, and an exceptionally astute, knowledgeable, and effective attorney.
Faced with the daunting responsibility of managing my late husband’s estate after his death in June, Dorothy helped me to understand and navigate the duties, responsibilities, and complexities of my role as executrix. Extremely well-informed about her field, she has always been accessible and willing to address my endless stream of questions (she has an uncanny ability to make complicated matters eminently understandable to the lay-person), and to offer helpful suggestions for my legal needs---while calmly steering me through the many unexpected twists and turns of my husband’s estate issues.
Always with my best interest in mind, she has dealt firmly and authoritatively with the complicated and challenging problems that arose from the estate’s administration. With great attention to detail and endless energy, she has done a superb job of untangling a mass of challenging legal concerns, keeping me informed at every step of the process, soliciting my opinion and considering my wishes in all matters
of the estate. Dorothy’s equanimity and confident guidance proved welcome and invaluable during a time when I was going through a maelstrom of emotions, having just lost my husband. I intend to use Attorney Bickford for all my legal needs in the future, and recommend her, without reservation, to anyone looking for an outstanding lawyer in the Boston area.

I have worked with Attorney Bickford for more then ten years and our situation has been one in which we have had to navigate estate planning and good decision making for a family business. The generations involved, their personalities and the complexity of the business holdings have provided an ever changing challenge. Yet with Dorothy's knowledge and patience to understand and break down each segment we continue to update and modernize our situation.Very professionally done and her personality makes hard work a pleasure to do.

I am in the unique position of being both a client of Dorothy, as well as an adjunct professional who has sent clients to her for legal work. Over several years I have found Dorothy to be extremely competent, thoughtful and professional in all of our dealings. Her ability to present concepts simply and communicate the impact to a client makes her highly effective. I would recommend her highly.
