Lucy Dowd is a very caring, sensitive, professional. I needed a "special needs trust", and Lucy came well recommended. I was very comfortable with her knowledge and skills needed for this type of trust.
Our estate planning was far from simple due to having an adult with a developmental disability in our family. Ensuring our estate was planned in a way that our son's needs would not be compromised after our passing is on the short list of our highest priorities. Lucy Dowd assisted us with estate planning, as well as establishing our guardianship and disability trust for our adult son with special needs. As many families in similar situations can attest, our schedules are often difficult to work with, but Lucy Dowd's patient yet persistent approach ensured that the work was completed in a timely manner and at a very fair rate. She is certainly on my very short list of attorneys I have absolutely no reservations referring my friends to for a consultation. I have, in fact, done so and received sincere thanks from the friend I referred who echoed my experience with Lucy. If there was an "Absolutely without hesitation" choice under "Would you recommend this lawyer?", I would click it.
Lucy revised our will and prepared a living will/power of attorney for us. She is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. She is quick to respond to emails and is very patient explaining the intricacies of the law. We highly recommend her services.
We were referred to Ms. Dowd for purposes of updating our wills, powers of attorney, and a special needs trust. Ms. Dowd met with us and explained several changes in the law since the time the special needs trust had been written by our original attorney. She assisted us with the wording of the necessary changes and completed everything within a very short turnaround time. We were extremely pleased and impressed with her professionalism and willingness to educate us while completing the work. We plan to continue to meet with Ms. Down periodically to ensure that all of our documents remain up-to-date in order to ensure that they are still written in compliance with current regulations so that our intentions are accomplished.
