    Attorney Profile

    The founder of Almgren Law, Paula K. Almgren focuses her practice on elder law, estate planning, and probate matters. Working out of her firm’s offices in Lenox, Massachusetts, she provides dedicated representation to clients throughout the Commonwealth. Ms. Almgren has been admitted to practice in Massachusetts since 1996, and in the following year, she became admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

    In her elder law practice, Ms. Almgren provides advice and counsel to aging clients and their family members on a variety of matters. She informs them of possible long-term care alternatives, including in-home care, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities, and when appropriate, she discusses with them how Medicaid and Medicare rules and regulations intertwine with each of those choices.

    Ms. Almgren’s estate planning experience has encompassed the preparation and review of last wills and testaments, health care and financial powers of attorney, irrevocable and living trusts, and advance medical directives. She tailors each document to the client’s particular needs and objectives, seeking in many cases to avoid having to go through the probate process and to minimize the impact of federal and state estate and gift taxes.

    Ms. Almgren is frequently invited to deliver presentations on topics related to her practice areas to groups of fellow attorneys and other professionals. Her lectures have covered Medicaid planning, veterans’ benefits, irrevocable trusts, and elder mental incapacity. A 1995 graduate of Albany Law School, Ms. Almgren is highly regarded by her colleagues for the breadth and depth of her legal knowledge, as evidenced by her receipt of a 10.0 “Superb” peer-review rating through Avvo.
