About Spano & Dawicki

Spano & Dawicki is one of the first and most established Elder Law, Estate Planning and Life Care Law Firms in New England. Spano & Dawicki was the only firm with a Board-Certified Elder Law Attorney in Essex County for more than 20 years.

We strive to continually offer the best and most comprehensive services available.

Founding Attorney, Stephen Spano, is one of only three Massachusetts attorney members of the prestigious National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys’ Council of Advanced Practitioners and one of only 24 Massachusetts attorneys to be Board-Certified as an elder law attorney (CELA) by the National Elder Law Foundation.

Our legal and financial team is composed of attorneys Stephen Spano, Francine Dawicki, Andrea Witt and Christine Hurley. Bringing diverse backgrounds and a focus on compassionate legal advocacy, we work collaboratively to best protect the rights and interests of our clients. We combine the talents of a very dedicated and experienced staff, including paralegals, legal assistants, and legal secretaries.

All our attorneys are members of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Life Care Planning Law Firms Association, and are certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to help veterans applying for benefits. Working as a team, each member of our firm is committed to providing quality service with a focus on our clients’ rights and best interests. You can trust that we have the skills, dedication, and qualified experience to represent you and your family.

Our team of professionals works extensively with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and its courts for probate, guardianship, conservatorship, MassHealth applications, estate planning and administration, and trust matters. Our staff regularly participate in continuing educations and participate in national and state conferences.
