Competent. Helpful. Educational. Good with Special Needs.
We badly needed to update our estate plan and we wanted to establish a special needs trust for two children. The update was a vast improvement in its content and in the format. In the process we learned a great deal. We went ahead with one child’s special needs trust but held off on the other — a helpful suggestion.

Will & Trust
Amy Fisher is our lawyer from the firm and she has been very professional and knowledgeable. She has asked and answered all of our questions pertaining to our will and trust. All of the members of the Nickerson team have been terrific including Rebecca and Cassandra. I would recommend this law firm to anyone in need of a will / trust.

Great personality
So easy to talk to. He explains things in laymen words. He listened to our concerns and made recommendations regarding the SNT for our son.

Professional, prompt, and knowledgeable service!
As newlyweds, my wife and I were looking to prepare our living wills and power of attorney forms. We went to Jeff for help in the process and we couldn't be happier with the results. Jeff was FANTASTIC: he guided us through the process of generating these important documents, gave us advice about what kinds of considerations we should factor into our decision making process, and drafted the final documents for us to sign. In addition, he was able to notarize them, making them official. All in all, Jeff was a consummate professional: he worked quickly and precisely, demonstrated in-depth knowledge, and made what can often seem like a depressing, anxiety-inducing exercise into an overall positive experience. Jeff has our highest recommendation!

Jeff Nickerson Estate Plan Review and Planning
Mr. Nickerson did a complete review of our family estate plan earlier this year and helped us implement important changes that brought our documentation in line with our wishes and current tax law. During the process we found that, much to our surprise/disappointment, our previous plan was completely out of date and needed major revisions. Prior to starting the review we were given a concise explanation of how long it would take, fees, the need to gather pertinent information, and what specific services the law office would provide. Initially a detailed analysis of our current plan was done in order to see where we stood. With the many changes in inheritance and gift law over the last decade it became clear that we needed to go back to square one and completely replace the document. The fee structure was more than reasonable and we immediately started to assemble the appropriate documents. The staff's guidance in this regard was most helpful. We met several times over two weeks in order to get the document right. They were very understanding of our occasional confusion and Mr. Nickerson's genuine sense of humor helped establish a very pleasant work environment. Their willingness to make themselves available at times convenient to my wife and I allowed us to knock this out in a little over two weeks. I can recommend Jeffrey Nickerson whole heartedly and without reservation.
