Mass-Wills.com is a portal created to describe estate planning legal services available in Massachusetts. It provides residents an easy way to begin the estate planning process, and get in touch with, and evaluate a local estate planning attorney, for the provision of legal services.
It is designed by Attorney Stephen L. Raymond, a native of Massachusetts, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Brandeis University. After receiving the degree of Juris Doctor, he went on to earn a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Labor and Employment Law from Georgetown University Law Center. While there, he specifically enrolled in a course of study concentrating on Employee Benefit plans, which included studying the tax treatment of pension plans, and thus, earned Georgetown’s Certificate in Employee Benefits Law.
Mr. Raymond started practicing law, litigating civil cases in New York. He returned to Massachusetts and opened his practice in 1997. He has helped clients with their various estate planning needs, as well as representing the disabled in insurance litigation since that time. He is licensed to practice in the state courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; the state courts of New York; the federal district courts for the District of Massachusetts, the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York; and the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. In addition, he has appeared pro hac vice in the federal courts in California, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. Mr. Raymond is also member of the Massachusetts Employment Lawyers Association.
