  • “So happy my path crossed with Despina’s. I first enlisted her services a few years ago when I found myself in the middle of a complex multi-estate settlement problem. It involved several trusts that were all interrelated and overshadowed by considerable legal issues. Despina went right to work, got to bottom of all the problems and resolved everything in short order. To this day I’ve not seen an attorney work so relentlessly in pursuit of client satisfaction. I wholeheartedly recommend Despina Kyriakidis.”

    Mr. Jon C. – Complex multi-estate settlement problem
  • We found this firm through the Internet, and hired them after a formal visit. Despina worked hard to resolve our family estate issues and did a fabulous job settling the matter at hand keeping our traveling to Massachusetts down to a minimum. If your looking for honest knowledgeable legal assistance take the time to research and you’ll fine that Despina Kyriakidis will do an outstanding job.

    Ms. Pat L. – Probate Administration
  • “I had a wonderful experience at Gosselin Law while trying to figure out a long term care plan for my aging mother. I met with two elder law attorneys who spent over 2 hours explaining my options to me. At the end of the free consultation a fee was quoted for all the work and it was my choice if we would continue. There was no pressure to use them for my needs but I chose to anyways.”

    Ms. Susan M. – Asset Protection
  • “Great service during a time of need. Legal matters were taken care of quickly and efficiently. Was always able to reach an attorney to discuss matters and was encouraged to call with any questions. I felt very comfortable with the communication and level of services and I will use them whenever it may be needed. I would recommend this firm to friends.”

    Mr. Richard B. – Real Estate
  • “We were on our way to the ship for Bermuda with my mom when she got sick. After rushing to the hospital we found out that she had a stroke and all of a sudden she couldn’t go home. The social worker at the hospital gave us John’s name and we called him to help us figure out next steps. He called us back at like 9 at night and by the next day we had a plan for mom and how to save her house.”

    Ms. Mikayla K. – Long-term Care
