Attorney Rob Deschene helped me through the process of obtaining Medicare benefits for my elderly mother. He understood the process and the timing of the application so that the benefits took effect before the Nursing home costs exhausted our limited resources. We set up a document for the Power of Attorney so that I could handle my mother's financial affairs. I found the circumstances surrounding my mother's health and financial situation very draining. Attorney Deschene was at all times supportive and calming through this difficult time for our family. This is not a process that you should try to go through on your own. I tried to place call after call to the people at Medicare/Mass Health and was on hold for extended periods of time and never did speak to a live representative. I knew at this point that I needed the help of someone who had experience in this area. We first learned about Mr. Deschene from reading several of his informative articles in our local newspaper on elder affairs and estate planning and my brother and I decided to call him to help with my mother's affairs. I have several friends who have elderly parents who are facing the same difficult decisions and I have not hesitated to recommend Rob to help them when the time comes.

We were very happy working with Robert Deschene. We had old wills that were very outdated and he helped us to rectify this. We had a very short timeline as our son was only available for a short time
and he worked quickly and efficiently to have everything done for us on time. He explained everything to us and made it easy for us. We were put at ease and enjoyed the experience.

I received Rob's name through word-of-mouth from another attorney. I have referred several matters to him, and all referrals have been more than pleased. His style is calm yet engaging, and it is clear that he is well-versed in this complex area of the law. Clients feel comfortable discussing the most sensitive issues with him and sexure knowing that their interests are well-protected.
