See what some of our clients have to say about their experience with the Heritage Law Center:
Our parents had no estate planning done at all and when our father unexpectedly had a stroke and needed long term care, we had no idea where to start with the Mass Health/Medicaid process, as well as getting wills, trusts, living wills, etc…done. Luckily we were given Matt’s name and he helped us navigate through the whole process, expediting certain pieces so we could protect our parent’s home for our mother, while making sure our dad was covered by Mass Health/Medicaid in a long term care facility.
Matt traveled out of his way on two occasions to meet with us and our parents to explain each aspect of their estate planning from the will, trust, living will, etc…We were able to get our father completed covered by Mass Health/Medicaid and protect the house they had worked all their lives for, as well as getting their house in a trust, both of their wills and living wills completed.
Matt went out of his way, took the time to explain each piece in terms we could all understand, at a very reasonable fee, with a lot of patience with any questions or concerns that we had.
We highly recommend Matt to anyone that is looking at getting their own affairs in order or assisting elderly parents with their planning. Matt was the utmost professional, all the while making the process smooth for all of our family, during a very difficult time.

“Recently it became clear our family required a sophisticated elder care attorney to develop a complicated estate plan. Following a lengthy web search, I came across Matt’s name and letters of recommendation. We set up a consultation, and it was clear from the questions he asked that he immediately grasped the nuances and intricacies of the situation. Matt was immediately able to recommend a path forward that protected my parents’ assets in the event that long term nursing care becomes necessary . Additionally, he recommended that a special needs trust be setup for my handicapped brother. Matt initiated a special trust which gave piece of mind to parents as they were assured that my brother would be financially secure for the rest of his life.
Matt took the time to explain everything to me, and even travelled out to my elderly parents’ home to explain the plan. Matt went above and beyond to allay my parents’ concerns, and did all this for a very reasonable fee. He is a true professional who inspires confidence. If you are in need of an elder care attorney or estate planner, I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
–Richard Russell, Gloucester
“The initial meeting with Attorney Karr was very helpful. He answered our questions, showed us our options, and didn’t push us to go one way or another. We decided to go with him with our estate planning and setting up our first LLC. We’re happy that we did! He was patient throughout the process. He is our lawyer and we feel comfortable recommending him to our friends!
–Jessie, Medford, MA
“Last year, I decided it was time to put my affairs in order. First thing on my list was to put my home in trust for my children. I needed a lawyer. I found Matt Karr though a simple web search. From the very first consultation, it was obvious that Matt was the right attorney for my needs. When dealing with such matters, knowing the law on the subject is not the only thing required. Compassion, respect for the client’s needs and a keen understanding of what the client really wants, are just as important as the legalities involved. Matt was extremely helpful in coming up with all the right answers to my questions. He was attentive without being invasive, made suggestions where needed and let me decide exactly what I wanted. The whole process took only a couple of visits to his office, a few emails, a couple of phone calls, and all was concluded in a few weeks. I am very happy with Matt’s work. He is personable, easy going (never once I felt rushed in any way), knows Estate Law, and understands what brings people looking for his services. Very reasonably priced, he makes what invariably has a touch of sadness, a smooth, pleasant process. I would recommend his services to anyone and would do so with confidence and a smile. I’ve already have advised everyone in my circle to give him a call when they need an Estate Law attorney.”
–Carita G., Somerville
“Matt was friendly, knowledgable, and easy to talk to. He answered every question (and we had many) to our total satisfaction. In the end we received an Estate Planning Portfolio containing everything we needed to put our minds at rest for whatever the future holds.”
–Margie and Phil, Revere, MA.
“Dear Atty. Karr, I can’t thank you enough. Whoever said “kill all the lawyers” was wrong. I would not have this money without your intervention and so I am forever grateful. Should I ever need you again, I would not hesitate to call; nor would I hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of an attorney. Your negotiating skills on my behalf were very beneficial.”
–Jan, Danvers, MA.
“I was at my wits end when I found Matt through a simple web search about Medicaid. I was immediately impressed with his openness to provide advice. My conversations with him and his references strengthened this first impression. Matt went on to help me navigate the legal logistics surrounding my mom’s very rapid deterioration and subsequent passing. His virtues are too many to name, but chief among them are his compassion, responsiveness, and most important, sound legal knowledge. In our brief relationship, I’ve become one of his biggest advocates.”
–Katherine Duerksen, New York, NY.

“While on SSI, I had a settlement coming to me from a major car accident. Fearing I would lose the money from the settlement, Matt assured me that I would not lose the money owed to me for my pain and suffering and helped me with a Special Needs Trust. Thanks to Matt, I can keep my settlement money while still collecting my benefits. Thanks Matt!”
–Leo V., Norton.

He helped me out during a past property issue and I was very pleased by his professional manner, his quick response, and his helpful and friendly demeanor. He gave excellent and useful advice, thoughtful suggestions, and he was a pleasure to work with. On top of all this, his abilities proved worthy when my legal issue settled in my favor. I would highly recommend Mr. Karr.”
“I hired Matt Karr to adjust my present will which contains two trusts. I found him friendly and able to offer suggestions concerning my present trusts and to inform me about some new steps I could take for my heirs to handle probation of the will.”
–Doris Diges, Manchester.
“Recently worked with Mathew securing MassHealth coverage for my mother whom was ill and had recently passed away. Obviously, a difficult time for myself and trying to make certain correspondence and coverage dates were maintained for insurance reasons – all while I live in New Jersey. I had submitted the initial paperwork, but timelines on getting approval were getting close and so that’s when I needed legal counsel. Mathew was able to keep things simple for me, yet maintain the utmost professionalism with regards to what the government needed. Some phone conversations, some emails and some comforting words all helped dealing with the situation and bringing the matter to a conclusion. I would highly recommend him and his firm in dealing with legal matters. ”
–David, New Jersey.
“Ever since our children were born, my husband & I have known we needed a Will. We didn’t feel an urgency that perhaps we should have, and so as life became busier over the years, it just never got taken care of until now that our children are grown! Attorney Matthew Karr, with his current knowledge & professionalism, took our burden from us with ease, asking all the right questions, offering us important points to consider & respecting our wishes in the end. We recommend Mr. Karr with no reservation.”
–Anne G., Danvers.
