"Your firm was able to take care of our legal affairs through the pandemic. After two Zooms, we had a final meeting outside that was conducted in a business like but very COVID responsible manner. We appreciate being able to meet in person and feeling safe."


"I feel so lucky to have found Attorney D'Agostino to help me through one of the most difficult times in my life. She is the quintessential professional; she is kind, empathetic, and astute. I am completely confident that she did her utmost best to helping me prevail with my case. Working with her will always be such a positive memory; I cannot say enough. I (we) did prevail and I am so relieved for that. But, had I not prevailed, I would still be writing this positive testimonial for Tricia. She was great! Thank you so much, Tricia!" 

             -Albertine LeBlanc

"I worked with attorney Tricia D'Agostino and her colleagues over a period of eight years managing the affairs of my elderly mother. They were consistently knowledgeable and efficient, and also supportive and empathic in the face of the many legal and financial questions I had to face. When curve balls came our way, they had the experience and sophistication to quickly assess the options, hear my concerns, and work with me to find the best solution. I enthusiastically recommend Ms. D'Agostino and the Margolis & Bloom law firm."

              -Edward Gray

"Filing for MassHealth while dealing with the care of my Mother was an extremely stressful time.  Patricia was very helpful and even contacted me on some days while she was on vacation because she knew how important this situation was.  I will be contacting her to draw up paperwork for my own family.  I can't thank her enough!"

-Heather Scott


"Very often clients come to me during an extremely trying time in their lives - a loved one has just passed away, has become unable to make his own financial or medical decisions, or is no longer able to live on her own. It’s not unusual for clients to be crippled by the emotion, the number of options in front of them and the many legal obstacles they face. I am so grateful that I get the opportunity to step in during this time to help my clients find a resolution and to understand that they can and will get through these challenges."

-Patricia C. D'Agostino
