Such issues can be quite complicated and cause stress. When you partner with us, we’ll provide you the security of knowing that you have a lawyer on your side who will fight to obtain the best possible outcome for you and for your children.
Mediation and Collaborative Law
Not every divorce needs to be hostile. A collaborative divorce process removes the threat of litigation so that separating couples can work together to avoid future recriminations by focusing on a settlement that balances the needs of each member of the family. There are so many advantages to this process. Not only is it better for your budget, but with a lawyer trained in mediation techniques and the legal intricacies of the collaborative process, finding amicable solutions becomes an achievable goal.
Estate Planning and Probate
No one wants to think about death and dying. Unfortunately, this means that over half of all Americans don’t leave a will when they pass. This can create huge burdens for those they leave behind. Don’t do this to those you love. While it is tempting to delay your estate planning, consider the consequences. Instead of waiting until it’s too late, allow our attorneys to guide you through the process. Based in Maynard, our law firm understands the particulars of local probate and estate law. We’ll help you craft all the documents you’ll need so that you and your heirs can have peace of mind.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Just the term “prenup” can cause a negative reaction. However, a well-crafted prenuptial agreement protects both parties and can contribute to the health of a marriage by eliminating potential sources of conflict. It gives each person a chance to discuss expectations up front, thus facilitating better communication between partners. While a good prenuptial agreement will make a potential separation easier, it also makes it less likely.
As people continue to live longer, situations where an elderly person needs help to handle his or her affairs grow more common. Whether an elderly parent or relative needs assistance with finances, medical concerns, or personal affairs, the right legal measures can protect and care for a loved one who needs help. Parents of developmentally disabled children may also want to consider seeking legal counsel for advice on how to protect them medically, personally, and financially as they grow into adulthood.
Melissa is a hard-working, personable attorney who helps her clients understand legal documents and advocates on their behalf. She helped me review legal documents, informed me of my legal rights, and suggested areas for follow-up. I felt comfortable with the entire process thanks to Melissa’s warm demeanor and her ability to explain information clearly. I would use her for any legal services in the future without hesitation – she is a top-notch attorney! [ Google Review ]
I can’t say enough good things about Levin Piro, and specifically, Chris Wurster. I went to this firm with a very personal situation and was treated with respect, advised honestly, and communicated with constantly throughout my time working with Chris. I find the experience of having to work with an attorney daunting but I did not once feel that this experience was anything other than helpful and sincere. I refer anyone I know here and recommend them without a second of hesitation. Also, their services are worth every last penny. Thank you, Chris, for all you did for me! [ Google Review ]
I started working with Alanna toward the beginning of this year and I wanted you to know how helpful she has been during my divorce. She has the perfect balance of assertiveness and empathy. She helped to bring my contested divorce to an uncontested one. Our hearing was this morning and I’m honestly going to miss working with her. I don’t think many people will say they will miss their divorce attorney but she’s become part of my support system. She made me laugh when I needed it most and listened to me during the process of what was most important as a divorce outcome. She’s very good at what she does. [ Google Review ]
