Knowledegable and helpful
I have been a client of Elder Law of Maine for 8 years. I have used them in trust , guardian, and estate matters. The firm is very knowledgeable and helpful. They are very good at communicating, keeping me informed, and explaining or educating in the legal process. All legal matters have been handled expeditiously and satisfactorily. I like dealing with a firm and legal staff that are familiar with me, my case, and concerns.
