Helen M Whelan is so professional . She spent a lot of time with me doing estate planning for my elderly father . Helen even took the time to meet my father at his apartment because he was not well enough to come to her office . Helen is so kind and patient and most of all so compassionate when working with the elderly Helen is extremely knowledgable about all aspects of estate law , elder law and even accounting . I felt like I really made the right choice using her . She was very timely in everything she did for my father and making sure all the necessary paperwork was done and done right in a timely fashion I would highly recommend Helen .

"I worked with Helen Whelan on all of my estate planning needs from updating my will and medical directives to the establishment of my revocable trust. At each step in the process Helen explained to me all of my options and how best to protect myself and my estate. Helen’s attention to detail, professionalism and guidance were greatly appreciated. I will always recommend Helen to my friends and family."

I have had the pleasure of working with Helen on some estate planning and Elder Law matters. We have referred clients to each other and I have received positive feedback from the clients that I referred to her. In addition, I brought Helen in on a complex Elder Law matter for one of my clients and she provided the highest level of expertise in this area. I am happy to endorse Helen and look forward to collaborating with her in the future.
