The true measure of anyone engaged in estate planning is what our clients believe. We have been honored to serve many wonderful individuals and families; many of them, in turn, have graciously told us of their satisfaction with our involvement in this important aspect of their lives.


"Cheryl did our wills and other estate planning and she was amazing. Not only is she really smart she gives a personal touch to the services as well. I feel very safe knowing my future estate needs are in her hands! I highly recommend!" - Camille Waters Averett


"My wife and I worked with Caroline on our wills and other important life documents we needed to get in order. Our experience could not have been better. Caroline took the time to go over all our options and advised us on the best plan for our situation (of which was the lesser of the 2 cost options). Arlanson Law has the best interest of their clients before any fees and I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking to have a painless will generating experience." - Sean and Lisa Spencer


"I have worked with Cheryl Arlanson Russo many times over the past several - both professionally as a real estate agent, and personally when my husband and I decided to put some estate planning in place. Not only is she a bright, professional attorney, she is a dynamic and wonderful person to know on any level. I highly recommend Cheryl and her firm to anyone who needs legal assistance." - Tanya Ames, Coldwell Banker Norwell


"We worked with Caroline to create our wills and estate plan and are so very grateful for her expertise and clear communication style. We had been putting off doing this, but now knowing more about it (thanks, Caroline!) and how essential this process is I wish we had done it much sooner. I had no idea that if God forbid my husband and I were to get into an accident, that without these legal documents, the state would have to take custody of our kids before vetting whomever would be able to care for them. I can't even stomach the thought of that happening, and am so glad to have a plan in place now that we are happy with. Caroline clearly and patiently communicated each step of the process to ensure we knew exactly what the options are and offered very helpful advice. Highly recommend!"  - Kelly Gorra

"Estate Planning has been something I've, for the most part, always avoided and neglected. Now, having worked with her [Cheryl] on my plan, I cannot say enough about her, her service, her staff, her associate, and the peace of mind that comes from getting my affairs in order. Cheryl is another one of those folks that just has 'the like factor' going on. She is professional and yet refreshingly down-to-earth with her counsel. She is very easy to talk to and patiently helps you understand the law as it pertains to your circumstances. She speaks plainly and honestly while being extremely thorough and sensitive to the emotions involved. If Estate Planning is a task hanging over your head, I encourage you to meet with Cheryl."- Terry Anderson
