Outstanding
Attorney Golden gave outstanding advice. Promissory note wasn't silent and my mothers estate is not responsible for the loans. Can't thank you enough!
Response from E. Golden October 18, 2016
I'm glad that things turned out well. I hope that everything works out for the best for you.

Thank You for being Online, Attorney Golden
Your online answer, clear and concise, gave answer to my question: Will my children have to pay any debt I incur, after my death. I have bought the $5,000 hearing aids, taking on this debt at the age of 82 You were right. It is nice to hear well again, and, I can converse more intelligently with my family, thanks to your turning my thinking in this direction, and, assuring me that my children will not bear the burden of any debt. I cannot afford an Attorney right now, but, have an appointment with the Attorney who gives time at the local Council on Aging. Like yourself and your colleagues, he is helping us old folks get over the hurdles of the present day. I thank you for being right here on Avvo. So Easy. Thank you Avvo for having Attorney Golden, and, her colleagues, who helped me out so much with their answers also. Mary

NEEDED: More Lawyers Like Ms. Golden
WOW! After contacting a Webster MA Attorney regarding the administration or lack thereof and final settlement of my mother's estate by the Executor (my brother), Attorney Golden was not only able to provide insightful advice, specific information and even follow-up that my hired Attorney has been unable to provide, she did it in less than 1 hour versus his 3+ weeks to date. I would highly recommend her for anyone who needs an obviously caring, compassionate and experienced lawyer.

ATTORNEY GOLDEN PROVIDED A SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION THAT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!
Attorney Golden answered a question I posed on Avvo.com within 16 minutes. I was seeking direction for an elder, sick friend with an eviction problem who had no idea where to seek help nor had the means to do so. Attorney Golden provided us with information of an organization that may be able to assist. She provided the name of the organization, address and phone number. The organization wasn't able to help my friend and I emailed Attorney Golden directly, explained the unfortunate results of our meeting not knowing whether I'd hear back from her. Within 24 hours she emailed me directly providing another attorney that could possibly assist and stated that she personally spoke to the attorney about my friend's situation and provided me with contact information as well as some additional advise. I am a stranger to her, posing a question on this website and she went out of her way providing me with valuable information and direction that I would never have received. Her sensitivity and compassion for my friend's situation far exceeded any expectation I ever had. She did not have to involve herself at all. I am so thankful to her and Avvo for helping us out. Attorney Golden is a true professional and a credit to the legal profession. Based on my experience I would highly recommend her and her organization.
