very thorough
Ms. Pritchard walked me through every detail so that I understood completely what was going on when constructing my will, and asked questions about issues I hadn't even considered. Very satisfied.

Will and Guardianship Documents
Maureen is awesome, patient and organized. She helped us create our Wills and guardianship documents after walking us through the different options for estate planning. We feel very confident in how our assets and legacy will be passed to our children, and can't thank Maureen enough for that peace of mind!

Results!
Maureen was able to get a settlement for our child who was injured at a young age. She rejected two settlement offers that were too low and made sure our daughter got what she deserved. She was always very prompt with responses to all our questions and excellent with communication.

Wonderful Lawyer
We're so glad that we had Maureen to help us navigate the process of writing our will. We were new to many aspects of estate planning and she was very helpful in explaining foreign concepts in ways that were easy to understand (trust structures, the probate process, etc.), while taking the time to ensure that we were covering everything. She always made herself available to answer our questions throughout the process, and she was patient and understanding, even when we made her repeat herself. As a parent of a young child herself, we felt like Maureen truly understood our concerns and that we could trust her to act in our best interests. She is very warm and easy to talk to. Overall she is just a genuine person, especially compared to some of the other attorneys we had spoken with at estate planning workshops. Plus, her fee was reasonable, and it even includes periodic followup meetings in the future. We absolutely recommend Maureen to anyone thinking about estate planning.
