Elder law encompasses a variety of planning objectives and goals, many of which deal with our most basic concern as individuals--our autonomy.
Wills, Revocable Trusts, Irrevocable Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Directives are just the starting point.
Life Care Planning offers a holistic approach to planning for a client’s legal, financial and care coordination needs .
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
I would enthusiastically recommend Smilie! I was very pleased with the estate planning services provided which included my will, healthcare directive, trusts etc... Smilie really listened to my unique situation / estate planning wishes and designed a comprehensive plan for me. Avvo
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

Getting to the lawyer's office for an appointment is not always an easy task. For some it is an issue of distance, for others the problem is mobility or poor health and then there are those winter days when no one should be on the road or walking on the ice to see their lawyer. That's why we offer video conferencing as well as video conference calls using Amazon's Echo devises (Show and Spot). Contact us to find out how we can make office visits easier for you.
