An Elder Law and Estate Planning Law Firm Providing Holistic Legal Care

Serving Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Legal Care We Offer

Elder Law

  • Elder law encompasses a variety of planning objectives and goals, many of which deal with our most basic concern as individuals--our autonomy.  We work with our clients to plan for their long-term care and help them maximize resources in the process. There are many issues to consider in any long-term care or disability plan - and the planning considerations can be complex, not unlike a maze.  Don't worry, our elder law attorneys can make it understandable.

Estate Planning and Probate

  • Estate planning is the process of planning for the transfer of everything you own to those persons you want it to go to after you die. Wills and trusts are only some of the tools estate planning attorneys use in estate planning and it is important that all means by which assets transfer at death work together to achieve the desired result.  
  • Probate is the judicial process by which wills (or the estate of individual's without wills) are processed. We are probate lawyers and can make the process understandable. 

Life Care Planning

  • Life Care Planning relies less on cisis-oriented transactions and more on monitoring, support and planning for life’s transitions though the long-term care continuum.  Life Care Planning offers a holistic approach to planning for a client’s legal, financial and care coordination needs and continues on an annual basis.  Our elder law attorneys, geriatric care manager and our customized continuing care service options can provide you with legal support and care advocacy.

Reviews of Our Services

Post by The Berry Family

In trying to navigate what we needed to do to get Mainecare for an elderly family member going into memory care, we found help through Attorney Mary Kathryn Brennan ***. After one meeting with her, we felt comfortable that she would get us through the complicated process that was ahead of us. She handled all the contact with Mainecare, helping us pull together what we needed in financial records and other paperwork. * * * She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, affordable, and compassionate. * * * Google

We are so very glad to know Smilie and Mary Kathryn! They have helped us in two critical ways, once for our estate planning and also with my brother who is disabled. They literally held our hands through a tough time and encouraged us to take important steps on behalf of my brother. I recommend them highly in both categories!  Google

When you walk into Smilie Rogers office, you feel as if you had walked into your own cozy living room. It is a welcoming and not stuffy environment. I had a power of attorney and Will done. Smilie and his lovely wife and partner Mary Kathryn are very nice, gentle, efficient and explicit as to what they do and how it gets done. They are attentive and caring, you don't find that in just any attorney's office. I highly recommend this practice! Rate a Biz

My husband & I had a great experience working with Smilie on our estate plan. This was something we had been putting off, however Smilie's warm personality and obvious expertise made the process painless. We highly recommend! Birdeye

As a now-retired lawyer, I sought Smilie's guidence in regard to several trust and real estate issues. He quickly assessed the issues and immediately provided guidence through these legal thickets. He also later researched several questions and provided timely and helpful additional information. Plus, he has a very nice demeanor and dealing with him was a pleasure. Avvo
