Why Do We Do What We Do?

Through personal family experiences in dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease and the loss of a loved one, we came to realize that we all have to be prepared for unexpected occurrences. If not for the careful planning our families did, the emotional and financial impact of these events would have been far more devastating and overwhelming.

How Do We Do It?

At Simmons & Schiavo, we use unique processes that we have designed and developed to give you ongoing confidence, comfort, clarity and peace of mind. Estate Planning, Estate Settlement and Medicaid Assessment/Application are complex areas of law that can be intimidating and stressful for families, it is important that they receive proper guidance from start to finish.

“Being in Real Estate, I deal with attorneys all the time. I had many options to choose an attorney to handle my estate planning. Ken is the one I chose as I have dealt with him in the past. He leaves no stone unturned and has excellent communication skills. Looking for an estate attorney? Just call him and rest assured, all will be taken care of!!”

-Dan Fabbri, Realtor

“I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Marco Schiavo. Attorney Schiavo recently created an elderly care plan for my Mom and did an amazing job. We were initially overwhelmed and confused by all the different options, but Attorney Schiavo explained each one in detail and in such a clear and easy-to-understand way. He was so patient with every question and never rushed us. His fees are very reasonable for such high quality work and great customer service. And best of all, my Mom now has peace of mind.”
