Essential to Our Family

My parents first hired Almgren Law many years ago to help them plan their estate. Since then, Paula Almgren and her amazing team have guided our family through all the changes that have occurred. After my father passed away, they were ready to assist us again in changes to the estate and Paula helped us with our questions about finding an assisted living home for our mother. Finally, Paula was able to help us apply for my father's VA benefit to help with her living expenses. There is no question in my mind that without Almgren Law, things would have turned out very different for my mother and our family.—Alan




There is no way I could have made it through the confusing and terrifying maze of legal, financial, and medical issues surrounding the care of my mother without the expert help of Attorney Paula Almgren and her team. Paula helped me secure VA benefits for my mother, which enabled me to keep her in a healthy, happy, and safe environment for the last part of her life. I highly recommend the Almgren Law life care plan, which comprehensively covered many aspects of my mom's care. The Almgren team stepped in when I needed help dealing with insurance issues, such as hospital and nursing home admissions. I had no idea that caring for an aging, ailing mom would be so crazy, but with Paula's guidance Mom was well taken care of. Mom and I were able to spend the last part of her life focusing on being together rather than worrying about money or legal issues. Thank you so much Paula, and everyone on your Team!—Judy

Guided Me Through Medicaid Process Successfully

I hired Almgren Law to prepare and submit a MassHealth Application for my 92-year-old Mother who was entering an Assisted Living Facility. This process is very complicated and our family was having to transition my mother after she lived independently for 91 years in her own apartment. I received tremendous support from Paula and especially Dawn who I worked closely with. They patiently and professionally guided me through the process and successfully got my mother's application approved. I highly recommend Paula Almgren and her staff. In fact, even after I received the MassHealth Approval there was another process that had to be approved related to the Assisted Living Facility and Paula Almgren and her staff were most helpful in providing documentation to them and answering questions from me. —Katie


Best Decision

I was referred to Paula Almgren by my brother who worked with her on his estate plan. He had nothing but good things to say about Paula and her multidisciplinary team. During my initial meeting with Paula to discuss updating my planning documents and concerns for the future, I was impressed that she was a good listener and a creative thinker. It was a great brainstorming session and I left feeling very positive. Through the whole process, Paula and her staff have been very responsive and helpful. Thanks to the team, the entire process has been a very smooth one and now going forward, I feel that I have a great resource in the Almgren firm. —Barbara

My brothers, my sister and I are extremely grateful for Almgren Law. —Liza

Wonderful Attorney

Paula - You have done a ton of work for me and my family and I sincerely appreciate the quality of your advice. I am grateful that my son brought me to you as you not only helped me with in-home care for my wife when she had Alzheimer's disease which made a difference for us to keep her at home, but you gave me the ability to organize my estate in a well thought out and equitable manner. I've enjoyed working with you and thank you for all of your excellent work. —David


Exceptional Advice & Service

Paula and her staff provided both exceptional advice and service at several times during the course of our legal needs. The firm was able to provide multiple options and approaches to our needs. They provided financial proposals as well as housing recommendations. The prepared anticipated cash flow statements to aid in the decision process. During the 3 plus years, Paula's nurse on staff made visits to the assisted living home to see our father. After my dad passed, they met with us again to guide us through the final steps. I would recommend this firm to anyone seeking legal services for elderly planning. —John


Gave Our Family A Plan & Peace of Mind

Paula Almgren was highly recommended to our family by a senior staff member at Kimball Farms Lifecare Community in Lenox, MA, when we were looking into assisted living facilities for my mother, who had Alzheimer's disease. We were bringing my mom from Texas to live near us because she was no longer able to live independently. Paula represented my mother for many years, setting up her estate plan and creating a long-term care plan for her, which involved a Trust and other estate planning documents. Paula also helped my mother apply for Veterans Aid & Attendance benefits, an application process that was so complex that I could never have done it without the help of Paula and her staff. My mom had limited financial means, but because of Paula's expert planning and the financial help from the VA my mother was able to live the remainder of her life at Kimball Farms in their Memory Care Unit, where she was lovingly cared for.

Paula cares deeply about her clients, and her staff is wonderful­ always thoughtful and responsive! Paula provides professional estate planning and legal advocacy when needed. Her professional knowledge made a great difference for my mother and for our family. Paula and everyone at Almgren Law gave us peace of mind when my mom was afflicted with a devastating illness and was facing an unknown term of costly care. My mother and our family had PEACE during that most difficult time. We are so grateful.—Phyllis


With Paula’s Help We Moved My Mother Home Against All Odds!!!

My mother had a fall and suffered a spinal cord injury. She was in a local nursing home, was paralyzed and needed significant care. Before we met with Paula we had no idea where to begin and we were stressed out, overwhelmed and we all felt helpless. We didn't think we had any choices beyond nursing home for my mother. My parents did not want to be apart and they were both very sad. Even though my mother needed total care, Teri the registered nurse from Almgren Law, met with the nursing home staff and began to put together a safe plan for my mother's discharge home. Paula put together an estate plan for my parents and applied for community based MassHealth for my mother which helped with the significant cost of her care. My parents were so happy to be together at home and they both cherished their time together. From her wheelchair my mother was even able to critique the way we decorated the Christmas tree! My mother recently passed away but the precious time we had at home together as a family would not have been possible without the support and extensive knowledge of the entire staff at Almgren Law. Their assistance was truly Priceless!—Phyllis
