Probate Avoidance

Given the time and expenses associated with probate, it's no wonder why so many people prefer taking steps to avoid probate proceedings. In this page we suggest probate avoidance techniques, one of which is the revocable living trust.


Probate is the process of administering a deceased individual's estate according to their will or state law. With an estate plan, however, probate can either be simplified or avoided altogether. At our firm, it is our goal to ensure your family does not have to go through the probate process after your passing.

Estate Planning

An estate plan can consist of various legal documents and is established to protect the creator, their loved ones, and their assets in the event they become incapacitated or pass away. It is imperative your estate plan includes trusts so your estate plan doesn't fail. Our Dedham estate planning lawyers can create many different estate planning documents, including wills, healthcare proxies, trusts, etc.

Elder Law

Are you nearing retirement? Do you have an estate plan that includes Medicaid planning? If not, please contact our firm. We can help elderly clients with Medicaid planning, healthcare proxies, and various other legal issues. Regardless of your age, it is our job to protect our clients and their families. With over 25 years of experience, Attorney Pellegrini operates one of the leading elder law firms in the state.

LLC & Corporate Formation

If you are considering starting a small business, it is imperative you contact a business attorney from our firm. We can assist you with issues related to business succession, asset protection, and creating an estate plan that incorporates your business. Our attorneys can also assist with tax planning.

Asset Protection

You have most likely heard horror stories of someone losing a majority of their assets due to a lawsuit. If you want to protect your assets from potential creditors' claims and/or lawsuits, it is vital you perform the proper asset protection strategies. We can help protect your business, your home, bank accounts, and more from nearly any type of threat by establishing trusts.

Tax Planning

Do you want your loved ones to enjoy their inheritance without facing harsh estate taxes? We can help protect your assets according to Massachusetts tax planning and trust tax planning laws. Our team includes CPAs, so you can rest assured that your estate can be protected from estate taxes once you pass away.

Healthcare Proxies

Any competent individual over the age of 18 is allowed to have a healthcare proxy in Massachusetts. A healthcare proxy allows you to appoint someone you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated and cannot make said medical decisions. If you do not have a healthcare proxy and become incapacitated, the State and/or hospital may have to make medical decisions on your behalf.


A trust is a legal formation that holds assets on behalf of one individual for the benefit of another person or people. Trusts can protect assets, ensure your family is financially secure, fund your small business, and/or help your family avoid probate. There are many different types of trusts and our Dedham estate planning attorneys can work with you and your family to establish the best trust/trust.

Medicaid Planning

Becoming eligible for Medicaid can be somewhat challenging. The purpose of Medicaid planning is to ensure that you or your loved one is accepted into the Medicaid program. Whether you need assistance with gathering the proper documents together for the application process or completely restructure your financial assets, our estate planning lawyers can help.
