Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and healthy after a restful summer. As we ease into fall, the change of season brings new color and energy to our routines. Now in our 13th year, our practice continues to expand and offer services that reach beyond estate planning and I continue to seek out the best professionals to assist our clients. I am delighted that Laurel Millette, Esq. and Nicole Simon, Esq. have joined us. I know that Laurel and Nicole share the same values as I do, and will offer you clear and thoughtful advice and counsel.

Laurel M. Millette joined us in June as Of Counsel. Laurel is an experienced estate planning attorney with over twenty years of experience. She will work with clients on estate planning matters and assist with client maintenance projects. She has maintained a solo estate planning practice in her hometown of Concord, Massachusetts since 2008.

Previously, Laurel was a Partner at Pierce Atwood LLP in their Boston office and as a Shareholder and Director at Davis Malm & D’Agostine P.C. in Boston. Laurel received her J.D. from Boston College Law School and her B.A. in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Pomona College. Before attending law school, Laurel worked in the Assurance Division of PwC in Boston and graduated from the Coopers & Lybrand Academy at the Graduate School of Accounting at The University of Texas at Austin.

Nicole Simon joined Eckert Byrne in early September. Most recently Nicole worked at Loring, Wolcott & Coolidge Trust LLC managing trust and probate administrations. Nicole will focus on trust and fiduciary services where she will help clients on various matters related to their ongoing estate planning and trust administration needs. She will also assist with clients enrolled in the LLR program. Nicole will be working with us on a part-time basis so she can balance her work life with her young family. Nicole received her J.D. from Suffolk University Law School and her B.S. from Northeastern University.

If you have any questions about our new team members or would like to schedule a meeting to discuss any estate planning or administration matters, please contact Chase at [email protected] to be added to our calendar. To all who celebrate the upcoming Jewish holidays, I wish you a wonderful and blessed time with loved ones.
