Extraordinary and Compassionate
Ms. Macey-Cushman was able the help our family navigate the obstructive system the federal government has in place with regard to veteran affairs. My sister was denied service connected disability for nearly 20 years, enduring a process that systematically stripped her and our family of hope for any measure of either justice or restitution. Ms. Macey-Cushman was kind, attentive, and tenacious. She is a classic advocate and a talented communicator. After nearly 20 years, with the aide of Ms. Macey-Cushman, my sister was awarded service connected disability and was granted retro-active restitution.

Angela is Amazing
Angela gave us clear, useful and compassionate legal advice on our very complicated situation. She was flexible with her time when we needed to reschedule. She went above & beyond by exploring issues we hadn't thought of and had not raised in our original request. This is our first time seeking legal advice on something like this - our experience couldn't have been better. Thank you Angela

Extremely knowledgeable, made the estate planning process simple and smooth
Angela was a joy to work with. She's an estate planning expert and was able to 'zoom out' and educate us about legal context when relevant to specific questions we had -without overwhelming us- and she addressed serious topics with grace and humor. She kept focus on the decisions we needed to make and beautifully crafted our wishes into clear and concise language. We did not need to plan for a special needs family member, but I understand she has expertise in this specialty. I highly recommend Angela and can't say enough about her level of knowledge, professionalism, efficiency, and skill. I will make sure my named personal representatives and heirs have her contact info so they can consult with her if I pass before she retires. But maybe they won't need to because our documents are so well written!

Angela is Awesome
Angela listened patiently and provided excellent suggestions for who we might contact to help us even though we don't fall inside her specialty. We called Angela with a question regarding family law. She helped us understand the general laws in this area, and set our expectations about what might need to happen in our case, how long it might take, a very rough ballpark of what it might cost and suggestions on who to contact and what to ask for. We were actually thinking we would work directly with Angela, after learning more it turns out we could not. None the less, Angela provided us with great guidance. I feel much better after talking with her.

Wonderful!
Angela is extremely knowledgeable and very professional on every level. She guided me through the process of establishing a Last Will and Testoment, taking her time with me and making me feel confident in the results. She is a very caring and compassionate person and I would not hesitate to use her services again, and likewise, I would definitely refer her to friends and family.
