I was lucky enough to stumble upon Alex and Amy at the office building from which they operate their practice, at the very start of the Covid pandemic. My mother had passed away and my elderly father was in need of a Will and Trust as to preserve his assets and allocate them accordingly. It was a daunting experience for my father from the beginning, but Alex and Amy made him and I feel at ease from the very first second.
Alex handled the initial discussion and what my father's wishes were for the documents, and put me at ease immediately with his wit and discussions of various topics that interested us both.
Amy took over the discussion and tele conference with my father, even offering to meet him in person at his home, as he was home bound. We conducted various conference calls and Amy was fully understanding of my father's reservations, give his age and what the finances that he luckily had built up, meant to him. Amy answered every one of his questions with compassion and understanding, always offering to call or meet at any time, just to appease my dad and meet his needs, regardless if it meant working later than she'd anticipated.
In the end, we were able to distance and meet Alex and Amy for my dad to sign all the papers. The body of the documents (Will, Trust) were surely hard to put together as to capture my father's wishes, but Alex and Amy surpassed our expectations. The docs were clear and concise. My father was happy and more importantly, comfortable with the process, the outcome, and with Alex and Amy as his trusted advisors. Alex talked to him about the "old days" and Amy reminded him of the intent of each document.
I cannot praise Alex and Amy enough, as, together, they are the perfect duo to carry out one's wishes with regard to Wills, Trusts, or surely any other legal document. My father felt that his opinions were appreciated and valued at all times, which allowed him to relax moreso than we anticipated. For all their incredibly hard work and dedication, we cannot thank Alex and Amy enough. They are the best.
As a licensed social worker and certified geriatric care manager with twenty-four years' experience serving the elderly population, I am often asked by clients and family members if I can refer them to an honest attorney with elder law experience. I am always hesitate to make referrals to any professional practice that serve the elderly population, except to their local ASAP (Aging Services Access Point ) and/or Council on Aging; because if something goes wrong, it always has a way of coming back to bite you. However, with that said, I would, without hesitation, recommend the Law Office of Alexander Matulewicz, located in Walpole, MA. Attorney Matulewicz and Paralegal Amy Strand are highly experienced in legal matters that affect older adults. They are very knowledgeable, professional and patient with their elderly clients. They have a way of expressing legal terms in laypersons understanding. Their rates are beyond fair and reasonable, which is always good new to a seniors ears and they are very generous with their time. When in need of a reputable elder law attorney a call to the Law Office of Alexander Matulewicz would be my choice.

Alexander Matulewicz came highly recommended to me from a colleague to represent my son, who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Alexander worked quickly and efficiently to resolve my son's court charges. From the very beginning, Alexander was approachable, diligent, and made himself available when I needed to discuss anything related to my son's case. During these unprecedented times with the pandemic, the court offices have been closed and it has been exceedingly difficult to speak with court officials. Alexander was relentless in his efforts to resolve the case, even with the added obstacles that the pandemic has brought forth. When choosing a lawyer I would highly recommend attorney Matulewicz, he is professional and knowledgeable in his profession.
Alex and Amy were excellent and extremely helpful during our families difficult time. They provided the necessary services to probate our case and did so in a timely fashion. Would highly recommend and use again if needed.
I was referred to Alex and Amy by a friend of mine. In my opinion, personal references are worth their weight in gold as there are so many law offices competing for your business today. How do you choose? Which one should you trust? Well, I am pleased to say that I was delighted that I listened to my friend and contacted this law office. During my initial meeting with Alex and Amy they both took the time to explain, in detail, the steps that would be required to address my case and how long each step would take and why. They made sure I was comfortable with their advice and recommendations. I have used many attorneys over many years for personal, probate and real estate transactions - some good and some bad. I must say that Alex and Amy provided me with straightforward answers, prompt and courteous service at a reasonable price. They also left the door open for me to come back if I had any follow up questions or concerns. I will definitely knock on their door for future legal needs. So, my overall assessment of their service would have to be excellent.
To begin, if we could give Alex and Amy a 10 star review, we would!!! Our experience with him/them has been wonderful and absolutely more than we expected.
A couple of months ago, a dear friend who needed some help asked us to help him find an attorney he could meet with to deal with some revisions to his Will and to discuss the necessity of a Trust. So we researched the names of local Walpole attorneys specializing in Estate Planning , checked their reviews, and selected 3. Initially, our intention was to meet with each of them briefly to try to assess their style and then select who we thought our friend would like best and easily connect with. I left a message with each office requesting an appointment to discuss a Will/Trust issue. Two days later - on a Saturday morning - we received a call from Atty Matulewicz apologizing for his delay in getting back to us but he had been out of town. We made the appointment to meet with him later that week. We never received any return calls from the other two. But after meeting Atty Matulewicz, that didn't matter. We left his office knowing that he WAS the ONE !
He listened attentively to the explanation of why we were there, what our friend needed and why, and proceeded to ask a few questions, review the documents we brought with us, identified a couple of issues that he saw, and then explained a wide range of possibilities, pro's and Con's, etc. He then invited Amy to join us to offer her perspective in dealing with those topics. After about an hour and a half of his time (free initial consult!) he closed by saying that he hoped he was helpful and he'd love to help our friend if he was our choice. After describing the experience to our friend, there was no doubt that HE WAS THE ONE!
Bottom line (finally) Our friend could not have been happier or more comfortable with Alex, Amy and the results of their work. The documents he worked on were ready in about 10 days, there was no rushing through the appointments. Most importantly, everything was explained fully and clearly , in easy to understand language. They were/are both exacting about deatails, honest and so compassionate, with a nice sense of humor...And the fee was so reasonable. We cannot say enough about our experience and will never hesitate to recommend Atty. Alex Matulewicz to anyone.
Oh, this Law Firm is FIVE-STAR!
Alex and Amy raised the bar
for honesty and integrity
(which most other lawyers lack, you see).
And as for compassion and empathy...
Well, all I can say is they had it for me.
And it was genuine, from the heart!
Bedside manner? They've mastered that art!
They're not just in this to make a buck.
(You won't get the bill and say "WTF?!")
They're in this because they really care.
(And the fees are really fair!)
They are the model for their profession.
You'll see this when Court's in session!
And you will feel that you have a friend
cuz they'll stick with you until the end.
No other lawyer could I recommend.
So be wise...
And hire these guys!
My sincere and heartfelt thanks,
Having gone through a devastating divorce Alex and Amy were recommended by a friend who was my therapist. They were supportive emotionally and helped me get through the process of the divorce. They got me through a very rough patch and made the process easy and they were extremely approachable and accommodating to my schedule. Because of their professionalism and Amy's friendship I was able to get though it with ease. Thank you so much. I would highly recommend them!
I hired Al for a inheritance issue. The process took about two years and during that time Al and Amy were diligent and professional during the process. They kept me informed regularly about the status of the inheritance which made me feel confident that I hired the right firm for the job. We have become friends and i will not hesitate to use their law office in the future.
We had Alex rewrite wills for us. He and his team were thorough, professional, flexible and accommodating in meeting times. I would highly recommend him.
God Lawyer, one of the Greatest Lawyers I have ever dealt with. Mr. Matulewicz was very ethical, god loving Man. Do not go to another lawyer for your probate issues, he is the best!
I found Alex and Amy after my original lawyer told me to make an appt to draft a will, but he was always too busy and never answered my calls. My friend Kathy, who is the Marketing Director at the Law Firm she works at, suggested I call Alex and was given an appt the following week. They were both easy to talk to, extremely helpful in explaining the law and were very professional. Amy's easy way of explaining things helped put me at ease and earned my trust right away. I would highly recommend them.
Alex and Amy really helped me out of a bad situation this year. I was in a situation where I had to keep away from a person who lived at my former residence. They protected me by acting as my representatives maintaining contact with that person and the apartment management. They handled paying all my bills so I wouldn't need to contact the person anymore. I also used them to draft a new personal will. I highly recommend them.
Alex and Amy were amazing team they treated me like family not as I was another eye candy to fill there pocket. My situation with trust was rough do to greedy sister but of course time was going by I was becoming anxious stress out they calm me down talk to me about the next steps making me understand all aspects in steps we take what better and what was not. I recommend them they very honest straight to the point.
As a registered agent and CEO of my own small business, The Law Office of Alexander Matulewicz is my top referral Law Office for Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts, and other administrative probate matters.
Alex was highly recommended to me. I was extremely nervous having to hire another attorney since my last experience with my attorney was nothing but horrible. Dealing with a difficult family member again is never easy. Alex eased my fears. Alex and Amy are knowledgeable and honest and knew exactly how to handle the case and started on it immediately. Working with Alex and Amy was a pleasure. Any concerns or question I had were handled promptly. Alex and Amy had the up most respect for my case. I greatly appreciate all of their work.
I'm Hispanic living in Massachusetts, English is my second language, I was afraid of going to a lawyer because I was told it could be very tricky and I had no idea of laws , but when I met with Alexander and Amy all of my fears disappeared , there very professional, knowledge and kind , they took there time explaining everything I had doubts, will definitely recommend them and will always use there services
Many thanks to Amy and Alexander; As with many of the reviews I read while looking for an attorney in Probate Law, many were Estate Lawyers with same old story. Many Estate Lawyers make the same claims, we can't promise anything, but we want $4000 up front and with standard billable hours that is just the beginning. In layman's terms your about to get hosed. Regarding Amy Strand, you could not find a better advocate in dealing with Probate Court cases, her knowledge of probate law is extraordinary, her persistence in fighting for your cause beyond doubt, and it does not hurt to have a good working relationship with the people working in the local area Probate Courts. They respect her work and her ability in the language of Probate Law. As for Alexander, I only had a little interaction with him. He did appear to be a strong advocate if you case enters into a court room battle. He gives you his honest opinion and keeps to his word. He was very helpful in explaining the legal aspects to me. While other Estate Lawyers use fear as a way to leverage money out of you, Amy and Alexander work to put your mind at ease. As you may have guessed Amy and Alexander were not my first legal counsel in this mater, they were most certainly my absolute best selection.
My experience with Attorney Matulewicz has been nothing but positive. The case i am involved in has been ongoing and thus far, he has properly represented me in court three times. Aside from court appearances, he has taken the time to meet with me on numerous occasions at his office and by phone. He is a busy man but always makes the time for his client. He is fair, sets realistic expectations, and works incredibly hard for the desired result. I will continue to work with him and i highly recommend him.
Attorney Matulewicz is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and unbelievably dedicated to achieving the desired results for his clients. I reached out to him based on a referral I received from a colleague and needless to say, I was not disappointed. Ours was what should gave gave been a straightforward care and custody agreement, but as with many domestic cases, there were many detours encountered along the way, none of which ever phased Attorney Matulewicz. My family put our trust and confidence into this man and a result, we came to a suitable agreement with the other side, and I now look to Al as a trusted advisor. Working for a top global law firm, I am exposed to a myriad of different attorneys daily. No one has the personal touch, the humane approach, or the capacity to truly "see the bug picture" the way this man does. I highly recommend him without any hesitation.
Bob and I would highly recommend the Law of of Alexander Matulewicz. We found Al to be very patient and extremely helpful. We were pleased with the way he explained information to us. When we had questions that needed more detail he found out exactly what we needed. Him and Amy were always professional, and welcoming. We liked that they scheduled the appointments at the times we requested and when we got there we did not need to wait and we were always well received. Everything we needed to have done was completed in a timely manner and within reasonable rates. If you are looking for an honest, hard working law office this is the place.
We wanted to say that both Alex and Amy were very professional and patient with us. They answered our questions and when more information was needed Al researched it until we were satisfied with the information. Our appointments were at our convenience and the time was set aside for us so we did not need to wait or reschedule. The friendliness and attention put us both at ease. The results were completed within a reasonable time. If you are looking for a good and reasonable law office We would recommend the Law Office of Alexander Matulewicz.
Alex and his legal team has done a fantastic job for me. I was appointed as Executor of my mother's estate. Alex is not like other lawyers. Other lawyers will charge the client for time spent on phone calls and e-mails to and from the client, not Alex. He never charged me for his time on the phone or for reading, writing, or responding to my e-mails I sent to him or his legal team. After every phone call, Alex would follow-up, generally within a day or two, with an e-mail summarizing the phone conversation. This is just one of the many ways of being prompt, knowledgeable and professional.
When one has been appointed the Executor of an estate, do not attempt this on your own get professional, legal assistance from Alexander F.X. Matulewicz, Counsellor at Law. People will say it is the little things that matter. Alex and Amy have done many little things that mattered greatly. They got the extra mile for their clients. I will try to cover just a few examples; Alex and Amy have made themselves available on the weekends. I am living out-of-state and in another time zone. The have answered my phone calls and have initiated phone calls on the weekend. My sister lives a couple towns over from the lawyers office, the family needed some legal documents that where at the lawyer's office. On a weekend, he hand delivered the dockets to my sister's home. These are just a few of the times they went the extra mile. This shows the level of care and concern Alex and his team has for their clients.
Alexander handled my estate case of the death of my father with speed, knowledge and efficiency. It even had a wrinkle in that, during the handling of the estate, a suit was filed against the estate for assets and Alexander got it thrown out. You would do well to consider using him.
Alexander F.X. Matulewicz was hired to sort out my mother's estate because the personal representative was from out of state. He did such a great service for our family that I hired him to assist with fathers Mass Health and Estate Planning. I would recommend that anyone in need of such services contact Al's office you won't regret it or get better representation.
With many thanks and appreciation to Attorney Alexander Matulewicz and his associates for their knowledge and expertise as they assisted and guided me through the divorce process. I felt as though the entire divorce they truly cared about me, as well managing my legal affairs, and sought to seek out and secure my best interests throughout the process. They were a blessing during a stressful time, and I am grateful for their efforts, help, time, and service. I would most definitely recommend this office to anyone who is need of legal assistance!
If you want someone who can relieve your worries, keep things simple, and bend over backwards to support you, Al's the guy. With all the uncertainties of a father passing away and the intimidating sound of "probate", my sister and I did not know what we were getting into, but Al made sure the process could be as easy and fast as possible. While providing his warm and strong reassurance that things would go alright, Al proved not only his extraordinary experience with these things as a lawyer but also his phenomenal character as a person.
When my father passed away, I was referred to this office to get legal help for dad's estate. From talking on the phone, to meeting in his office, to correspondence via email, Al and Amy were always professional, diligent, honest and very competent. I have never dealt with the legal system before, so I was very nervous and grief is always difficult to manage. However, Al knew exactly how to speak to my brother and I to not only ease our worries but was very informed and experienced. I became personal representative within 2 weeks of the entire process which was indeed a Christmas miracle. I highly recommend Al and his team to anyone looking for a great lawyer.
A man of deep integrity and who is willing to go above and beyond. If you're looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable and excellent at what he does...your search ends here. Al is the counsel you need!
Al is a good man and a highly competent lawyer. He is professional, considerate and decent. He offers legal advice with skill and wisdom--and he also offers his soul. He is a kind and just person, who actually tries to make the law work the way it is supposed to.
I stand by what I said. I and my family and friends have worked with Al, and have found him to be exemplary.
Thank you so much, we are very grateful for all the work you put into this matter. We were overjoyed with the way things turned out; I wanted to send this letter stating how much you and Alex helped with the situation; you are both phenomenal. Amy, so persevering, you go in and fight with such skill and care, it is wonderful to behold.
Thank you and Alex so much for everything you have done.
Blessings to you both.
Al is different; he cares & becomes a friend while using his wisdom & competence in succeeding...it's amazing!! Would highly recommend him & his team!! Thank you for all you do Al...God bless.
Attorney Alexander Matulewicz assisted me when the bank was threatening foreclosure. He referred me to someone he works with who buys foreclosed properties and therefore knows how to deal with the banks. He was professional and helped me through a very emotional time in my life in a very calm manner. I would definitely recommend Attorney Matulewicz- he makes sure to get the right people for the right situation
Al & Amy,
Thank you for your representation at the unemployment hearing. We were so happy we won and appreciate all of your help and time you dedicated preparing. Your efforts were deeply appreciated, and I know we wouldn't have received the same service (or results) elsewhere.
Thanks for everything!
Amy and Alexander,
I cannot thank you enough for coming to my house to meet with me and prepare my Last Will & Testament. Now that I no longer drive, I couldn't have gotten my affairs in order without you! You went above and beyond, not only by making the house calls, but by spending the time to really explain things to me. I sincerely appreciate all of what you have done for me...THANK YOU!!!
Alex & Amy,
We appreciate your attention to our situation, thanks to you we accomplished what we set out to do. You guys are awesome! Thank you for being so kind too; we will always value this new friendship.
Trust me on this Al is a great man, which stands to reason a great attorney...I have had the need of his services, and based on the experiences I've had with lawyers....there is no-one better...truly second to none.....grateful to god for putting Al and Amy in my path.........20 star rated!!
Al and Amy,
I want to sincerely thank you both; I had fallen upon some very hard times this past year and it was wonderful to have you guys on my side during my divorce. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I have already recommended you to others!
Alex and his staff were a tremendous help in assisting my mother with a complicated legal matter. They took the time to truly understand her situation and then worked hard to achieve a very favorable outcome.
They are dedicated to their clients and go above and beyond. Should a legal matter present itself in the future Alex and Amy will be my first call.
After 2 other lawyers, I had peace once I had Alex on my side. Estates are sometimes dragged on, in my case 5 years. I was skeptical, even after reading Alex's website, but decided i would take the drive, one last time. To my surprise he was what he preached, if only all other lawyers were like him, the world would be a better place.
Alex is an exceptionally detailed individual with a gift for communicating and interpreting the law. Highly recommended. Five Stars!
