O’Connell Law Puts the Person First


These are challenging times and people’s needs are changing constantly. To keep up with these changing times and needs, O’Connell Law firm spends extra time getting to know its clients better than most.

The firm focuses on Alzheimer’s planning, estate planning, elder planning, veterans benefits, and probate/trust administration. Most of these areas are ones that people don’t want to think about when they’re young and healthy. But those who do — and their families – will be grateful they did the planning before something happens.

With the current pandemic, the firm added two additional options to their menu: The KeyThree plan and the Frontliner Essentials plan. 

The KeyThree plan allows people to get critical basic healthcare documents in place quickly and affordably during the pandemic. The three documents covered in this plan include: a living will, a healthcare proxy, and A HIPPA medical release form. This is the perfect plan for those who kept putting off filling out the forms, but are now concerned about getting them done on time and within their budget constraints.

The Frontline Essentials plan is pretty straightforward. We are grateful to the Frontline workers, first responders, educators, and essential workers who are required to put themselves and their families at risk by working outside their homes. Because of that, we created a basic planning package that allows you to get a Massachusetts will, power of attorney, and healthcare documents as quickly, efficiently, and economically as possible.          

And speaking of COVID-19, O’Connell Law LLC has safety precautions at their forefront. In fact, even before the pandemic, the staff at O’Connell Law was offering remote options and other flexible terms so clients didn’t have to choose between their needs and their availability.

The firm, which includes Tiffany A. O’Connell, Lynda Furash, Faiza Z. Chaudhry, Carol Nahass, Olga Klebanova, and Nicole Woodward, has strong ties to Natick. O’Connell grew up in Natick and still lives there; Klebanova also lives in town.

According to O’Connor, “We were set up prior to Covid to be able to work remotely. We are doing daily virtual meetings with clients and the feedback is very positive. We can still fully service clients remotely and then (unless they need to stay in their homes) do a ‘drive-through signing meeting’ with a client, where they come to the office, stay in their car, and we do the signing meeting outside at their car. It works like a charm. We do have a beautiful office – we miss it, but we will be able to return to it one day,” she said.

Even if you’re not able to be in the office physically, you can see how easy it is to still work with staff at O’Connell Law LLC. You’ll never have to worry about being intimidated by the prospect of meeting with a lawyer. No one will speak to you in a strange language known as Legalese or slide a pile of papers across a massive desk to be signed, and then send you on your way.

The more relaxed atmosphere is also a reflection of who they are. They believe estate planning and related practice areas are not just about properly filling out paperwork, but also about getting to know clients on a personal level, working closely with them to understand their concerns and goals, and taking the time to explain options in clear, easy to comprehend language.

In short, they believe that the essence of estate planning is establishing strong, personal relationships. They hope to serve as your counselors for life.

O’Connell Law LLC places family at the heart of everything they do. In their own families, their work family, and their client families, they endeavor to make all feel comfortable and understood. Their ongoing goal is to make a positive impact through personal touch and their warmth.
