Client Testimonials

Shannon’s professionalism

Since January 2018 we have engaged Shannon to update our wills and associated trust documents along with filing the annual LLC documents with the state of Massachusetts. Shannon demonstrated courtesy, knowledge and professionalism. We certainly will use her professional services in the future and heartily recommend her.


Thanks for making the process easy!

I worked with Shannon processing my late father’s estate. I really appreciated her (and Beliveau’s) professionalism. Shannon is knowledgeable, hard working, organized, technically and mathematically savvy when it came to the estate taxes, and very communicative via email which I really appreciated. I felt confident that I was in good hands. Thank you much!!


Home Closing

We recently closed on our residence in Newton. Mary was outstanding. She proactively reached out to their attorney frequently as they were not that responsive. She kept us informed the entire way and overall I can only say is she is a total professional. THANK YOU MARY!

Total Efficiency

Mary was pleasant to work with. She knew what she was doing the whole time and worked very diligently during the P&S writing and some negotiations at the end to ensure I was covered and protected. She was also the closing attorney. She was on time, came in prepared and ready to go which made the process quick and smooth. I totally recommend her to anyone.

Mary is terrific! Very thorough and responsive.

Refi and new purchase

The Key to Victory

David Beliveau’s expert testimony on trust law and Florida fiduciary law was the key to a trial victory for my client.  I represented a Massachusetts trustee who was administering a Florida trust.  The lifetime beneficiary of that trust filed suit against my client who was a highly regarded trust attorney.  The case was complicated as it covered myriad aspects of Massachusetts and Florida trust law.  As the case headed towards trial, I realized that I would need an expert witness to testify on trust law and fiduciary law.  Attorney Beliveau’s testimony at trial was clear, concise and informative.  His ability to testify knowledgeably and confidently was the key to victory after a seven day superior court trial and having the claims against my client dismissed.  I would highly recommend Attorney Beliveau to any attorney in need of an expert witness on trust law or Florida fiduciary law

~Leonard A. Frisoli, Esq.

She did it all!

Mary handled a real estate transaction for me and my spouse. Since we were about to embark on a trip outside the country, Mary had to handle all aspects of the sale which included back and forth with the buyer and his attorney. Upon our return, we were informed everything was complete and we would be closing in a few days. Mary answered all our questions quickly and provided input that saved us considerable time and insured a smooth transaction. We were extremely pleased and highly recommend her.

Mary Hart and the Beliveau Law Group

Mary Hart handled my questions about a house I was trying to purchase. She was very quick to reply to my messages and very knowledgeable.

And if possible request Mary Hart as she was very easy to talk to, and explained everything in clear layman’s terms so I could understand everything.

High quality work, excellent service

Mary helped my wife and I execute a for-sale-by-owner sale. She was an outstanding help.

She was highly accessible and very efficient. I’d highly recommend her.

David Beliveau

I found information about David and his firm on this Avvo site while I was doing some internet research, and thought it was appropriate for me to post my feedback on the site as well.
It had been over 10 years since I had reviewed my estate documents and they needed to be updated. I had to find another attorney since my previous attorney had retired. David’s client reviews were excellent in the areas of estate planning AND he offered a free, initial consultation, which was a requirement for me. Other pluses: licensing in MA, NH, & FL; Medicare expertise; multiple office locations.
At the initial consultation, David presented a good overall picture of the process, including some cost saving options.
Trustworthiness, subject matter expertise, thoroughness, organization, excellent communication and follow-up, and attention to detail are extremely important to me, and David met my expectations. All my questions were answered at my face-to-face meetings, or through email follow-ups, and I never felt rushed at the in-person meetings. I have confidence in David’s knowledge and his personal desire to stay up to date with the ever changing legal environment and believe he is a trustworthy practitioner. I sleep better at night knowing my affairs are now ‘in order’, and I trust David will be able to provide me with the legal advice/support I may require in the future.

~Chris, an estate planning client

Very Helpful

Mary helped me in a great way that she … provided help throughout the whole case. I would strongly recommend her for real estate cases and other related cases as well.

~Linglan, a Real Estate client

Shannon Baglole

I had the privilege of working with Shannon M. Baglole when she was starting out in the law profession, and I would welcome the chance to work with her again. She was extremely knowledgeable, very attentive, personally engaging, professional, and well organized. I have no doubt that she has grown enormously over the past few years and I recommend her highly.


Wills, Estates and Trusts Review for Shannon M. Baglole

My husband and I worked with Shannon Baglole in 2013 when we decided to revise our will, create a family trust and revise other vital documents now that our children were all adults. Ms. Baglole was very helpful throughout the entire process, explaining our options, keeping us informed and turning documents around in a timely manner. I found her to be professional, knowledgeable and engaging, and could not have been more pleased with the services she provided. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking similar services.

~Marcia, an Estate Planning client

Mary Hart

Atty Hart represented us when we recently purchased a house. She exhibited best professionalism anyone would expect. Professional, knowledgeable, and very responsive, she answered questions with clarity, patience, and in a timely manner. In particular, Mary is a warm and easy-going person. We had great experience working with her in the past couple of months and would recommend her without reservation.

Geoffrey McCullough

“Employment and contract litigation is a lengthy, involved process that is daunting and sometimes scary.  Geoff McCullough was my attorney and my employer’s attorney defending a case against us.  He was outstanding.  He helped us through the whole process, from beginning through trial.  He’s a great listener and advisor.  He’s also outstanding in trial.  He won the case.

~Lisa Evaneski

Geoff McCullough is an outstanding trial lawyer

Geoff McCullough sees things through and is an outstanding counselor and trial lawyer.  He works closely with those he represents. His personal touch and inclusive disposition helped me stay focused and engaged throughout the process and supported me through a very stressful experience.  I recommend him most highly. 

~Assaad Sayah, MD

Susan Flanagan

Susan Flanagan, from Beliveau Law Group, helped me with the Medicaid Application for my mother who is in a Nursing Home. She was very knowledgeable and helped me through the long process. Because my mother had an Irrevocable Trust, it was much to difficult for me to tackle the Medicaid Application on my own. Susan helped me every step of the way. She would always return my calls and emails within the hour. She has incredible patience, vast knowledge on the subject…and kept me going when I felt overwhelmed. She went to the Department of Health and Human Services in my place and handled every detail until my mother finally qualified for Medicaid. I can’t say enough about Susan Flanagan. She surely is an asset to Beliveau Law Group and it was my pleasure to work with her. Thank you for everything you did for me, Susan.

~Maureen, a Medicaid Application client

Mary Hart

She is a professional working hard on your side taking care of all legal matters for you! Worry free if you work with her! I am glad I have Mary as my attorney and Matt as my agent!! Silver bullet combination!

~Anonymous, a Real Estate client

Review Noah Rabin

Noah guided me through the process of my mother’s Medicaid Trust. There were so many times when I needed help and Noah was right there to offer his help. I would email him, and within 30 minutes he would respond. I just can’t say enough about this lawyer…he is intelligent, patient, kind, and always willing to respond and lend a hand to get the job done. He was absolutely wonderful…and he is an asset to Beliveau Law Group. Thank you for everything, Noah!

~Maureen, a Trusts client

Attorney Mary Hart

I am a part time real estate agent and have known Attorney Hart from the Beliveau Law Group for six years. She has handled many of the real estate transactions for my clients, family members as well as myself. She is a very dedicated and responsible attorney who always goes the extra mile to complete the tasks on the client’s behalf. She answers questions promptly, and I can even talk to her late in the evening to resolve any issue that may arise unexpectedly. I trust her completely, and I have no hesitation to recommend her to anyone.  ~ Anita Sung, real estate agent

Margaret [Cross] has represented me in the past, dealing with issues of estate planning and real estate. She helped set up our homestead, a will, and other estate needs, and helped me understand why each was needed. I would definitely recommend Margaret.  ~ Jeremy, estate planning client

Highest Recommendations

Mary [Hart] represented me twice for two separate real estate transactions. Both times, we were faced with unusual obstacles, and Mary did a great job helping me understand what was happening and what was needed to fix the problems. She was always checking in and could be reached even at odd hours – made me feel like I was in good hands.  ~ Jeremy, real estate client

Estate Planning

David was recommended to me by a mutual friend and I was immediately impressed by his knowledge of estate planning law. He took the time to explain our options and was very honest, even steering us away from the most expensive option as it did not provide the best value at this point in our lives. David and his team provided us with a Will, Living Will, Healthcare Proxy, Power of Attorney, and HIPAA privacy documents. We would recommend David without hesitation.  ~Gabe, estate planning client.

Estate Planning

We would recommend Margaret without reservation.  ~ Gabe, estate planning client

Attorney Keleher will put your worries to rest.

Attorney Keleher is fantastic. From day one he showed genuine care for me and my situation regarding a former employer. I had been dealing with my situation for the better part of a year and was feeling hopeless that things would ever be solved. I am a recent college graduate and as such did not have a lot of money to spend on legal representation, but felt that my situation could not be resolved without getting outside help. Attorney Keleher understood that and put all of my worries at ease. He worked efficiently, was incredibly responsive and approachable, and made me feel like my case was important. He listened to all of my concerns and worked very hard to ensure I got the outcome that I was looking for. I definitely would recommend him a hundred times over. ~ Krystyna, a Employment client

Very knowledgeable about MA Elder Care

Attorney Margaret Cross-Beliveau is very knowledgeable about MA elder care issues and estate issues. I needed her advice on my 86 year old mother’s situation, and also advice on a distribution from a trust to a relative. ~ Elder Law client

Strategic Estate Planning Attorney

“David has been a trusted estate planning advisor to our family for years. We appreciate his strategic counsel, attention to detail, responsiveness, and ability to explain complex laws in laymen’s terms so that we can make the best decisions for our family. We highly recommend David and his team, particularly for more complicated estate situations that require strategic planners with an in-depth knowledge of the law, a wealth of past experience, and a strong commitment to client service.”   — Daniel and Christine Antonellis

I cannot say enough good things

“I cannot say enough good things about David. When my wife and I decided to get serious about our estate planning, David was the attorney we chose to work with. He took a great interest in making sure we understood all of our options in terms of creating our wills, powers of attorney, and health care directives. His knowledge in all areas of estate planning impressed us immensely. After our initial consultation with David, my wife and I felt 100% comfortable with our decision to hire David. We now have peace of mind when we think of how our assets will be passed on according to our wishes. I have a financial advisory business and only think of David when I have clients who need to complete their estate planning. ” – Peter Murphy, Estate Planning

Attorney Margaret Cross-Beliveau handled my Wills / Living Wills matter

“Margaret was so helpful in planning our will and other documents. She is a true professional and great to work with. She explained very carefully the contents of each document to make sure we understood them. It is not often you feel this comfortable with an attorney. We would contact her again with out reservation.” – Donna, Wills Client

Estate Planning

“Recent events in the family motivated my wife and I to revisit what would happen if one or both of us passed on, or became incapacitated. We are nearing retirement and felt it was time to put things in order to protect property and earnings. To this end our financial advisor highly recommended David Beliveau. After an initial consultation my wife and I hired David for our estate planning. Looking back we were quite naive when it came to probate courts, state inheritance and tax laws. David explained everything to us, laying out the benefits and drawbacks of each option. David covered sensitive topics in a way that made us feel comfortable and did not overwhelm us with “legalese”.  In a short time we had established a trust and will, and now feel secure that our children will receive an inheritance according to our wishes. My wife and I strongly recommend David Beliveau for estate planning, and feel well armed to meet any future legal issues with the Beliveau Law Group. Bruce B., NH.” – Bruce, Estate Planning

We’d recommend to family and friends

“We used Attorney David Beliveau as our Estate Attorney to set up family Trusts. He patiently took the time to listen, explain, make suggestions and prepare the appropriate Trust documents. He and his staff were pleasant, thorough and accommodating. He was just as greatly knowledgeable and helpful with legal corporate questions we had. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Attorney Beliveau to family and friends.” – Judy, Estate Planning

Trust work and licensed in MA, NH and FL

“David did trust work for our family, and I was happy with his knowledge, judgement and interest in crafting appropriate docs for our circumstances. He is licensed in MA, NH and FL which was also a benefit to us because we own real estate in all three states. His law firm also has an active real estate practice. ” – G.G. Trusts

Trusted legal advice

“I’ve been working with David for 5 years now. He has been there whenever I need legal advice, and has gone above and beyond in helping me.” – Jeff, Landlord Tenant Client

Tremendous in managing estate affairs between MA and FL

“Attorney Beliveau was a tremendous help when my mother took ill down in Florida and could not manage her own affairs. He walked me through the steps and provided documents for me to legally handle her affairs in two states, including protecting her assets. He and his staff were polite and efficient in their work.” – Bob Bedford, MA, Estate Planning

Knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and personable

“I found David to be knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and personable when he handled estate planning for me. He went through the pros and cons of various options related to trusts and other estate planning issues so I was able to make good decisions in light of various complex choices. I was pleased with David’s professionalism and helpful nature. ” – Elizabeth, Estate Planning
