This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Golden Standard, Highly Recommend!
I contacted Mr. Sowerby and several others for consultation re my father's estate when things went sour. Mr. Sowerby was the one person who not only responded in detail by email, he also spent over 20 minutes on the phone with me. I hired him and I can tell you he not only positively resolved the issues I was having, he did it all under the estimated cost he provided. When you should be focused on grieving, the last thing you want to do in these circumstances is think you could be taken advantage of, Mr. Sowerby had my back, kept me informed, and quite frankly saved the other party a lot of difficulty by informing their attorney of incorrect filings! He was professional, kind, empathetic and knowledgeable. I can't recommend him highly enough, seriously, I don't give 5 star reviews unless deserved.

Dwight Sowerby, best in the area
Sometime ago I met Dwight, in any event, within the past 14 months we have become a team. I was tragically faced with decisions that were beyond my capacity of making. Dwight was with me every step of the way. Dwight provided guidance, compassion and friendship which continues today. During this tragic time, Dwight took it upon himself to spearhead a team of professionals for my benefit, I call them "Team MJ." I highly recommend Dwight Sowerby, he is by far the best!

Relocation attorney -- Massachusetts to New Hampshire
My wife and I recently moved to NH from Massachusetts.and were in need of updated documents relative to our relocation as well as new ones to address “elder law” issues. I found Mr. Sowerby a breath of fresh air after having dealt with lawyers for decades in Massachusetts. I recommend him most enthusiastically to others, and would be proud to do personally upon request.
