My experience with Andrea Witt has been exceptional. She remained on top of the complicated situation of ********’s Estate from the beginning. It had been a long (over 4 years) process but she put me at ease and never lost patience with me throughout my moments of stress and concern.


Melissa McCullough was instrumental in making this process flow smoothly having gotten myself into a sticky situation and with no accounting experience; she worked with me in a way that made it easier for me to keep track of transactions by numbering them. She is responsive, professional, and always available to assist from start to finish. All other staff was professional when I called or stopped in the office. Kim and all others I spoke with are extremely pleasant.

Why would you refer someone to Spano & Dawicki, LLC?

Absolutely! I would not hesitate to recommend your firm. Having received top notch service, I felt safe, protected and have confidence that this estate was handled with utmost professionalism and experience. I am so glad to have been referred by my sister ********** and my friend, **********!

The quality and caring of my legal team has been outstanding!!! Andrea Witt took a reasonable amount of time to explain the details of the advice given and treated me in a professional manner.


My calls were always answered promptly and respectfully. The staff couldn’t have been more pleasant. I believe I was represented faithfully and well by Andrea Witt and Sarah Chiaradonna.

Why would you refer someone to Spano & Dawicki, LLC?

Absolutely! I already do! Just make sure you let future Clients know most matters are a process taking time and that they are going to have to trust someone to represent their best interests in the matters at hand.

Andrea did a wonderful job of explaining a complete chaos situation. I was very overwhelmed w/emotion and Andrea made it as easy as could be. Andrea & I talked about when I sell the house I may need help with the title. I’ll let you know when I come back to MA.


The Staff was helpful & friendly.

Why would you refer someone to Spano & Dawicki, LLC?

Absolutely! Thank you for your expert advice & patience.

Dear Donna,

Please let Stephen know how much I have appreciated his advice over the years. I did not have his personal email so writing to you. I had been in several times over the past few years for my uncle. Stephen told me to let it go and did not want me to spend the money (honest attorney) I was SO close to coming in with my check but Stephen was right and ******* just passed away peacefully just short of his 102 birthday with no nursing home. Thank you for all your help.


Stephen also helped me with my mother ******* and he was a miracle worker.

Sarah can you please forward this to Andrea and Stephen for me as I can only find your Email address. I was going to fill out the survey you gave us but it is somewhere in a two foot high pile of papers on my desk.

Dear Stephen, Andrea and Sarah,

On behalf of the entire ******* family, I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for everything that the law office of Spano and Dawicki has done to help us out over the last year and a half. We never would have been able to accomplish all of the things that we did without your help and expertise. Hearing the horror stories from other people about what a bad situation we were in filled me with dread about my parent’s future. Watching Stephen shake his head in dismay that first day, when we showed him some papers, told me we were in big trouble. Everyone had told us previously that we were screwed, but Stephen looked my dad right in the eyes and told him, "don't worry, we'll fix it". You then showed us that there was a way to prevent the worst case scenario from coming true. When I tell other people our story, they sometimes don’t believe me. When we left your office that day we felt like we were in good hands and had made the right decision. Your commitment to the smallest of details and the passion to do the right thing for my parents filled me with a sense of well being. I never felt like we were being taken advantage of, and in this day and age, that is a rare feeling.

Without question, I strongly feel that Andrea Witt is the reason that we able to waive the Guardian Ad Litem. I have told lawyers that I know personally, and they were shocked that it was waived. I feel that we would still be paying other lawyers if it was not for her. The way she took over this case midway thru and then steered us in the right direction at a time when I was not too happy with the legal process, just may have saved me a couple years of my life. For this I will be forever grateful.

I hope that the powers that be at Spano and Dawicki also realize what an incredibly talented person that Sarah Chiaradonna is. The efficiency with which she handled the "too many" (my words) questions that we had for her, was amazing. Whether it was a tough one or a simple one, she answered it as fast and as concisely as possible. No question was too crazy to her, even though I'm sure we had a couple of beauties. Whenever we talked, I always felt like I was talking to a friend, not someone that we had hired. She treated my father like he was part of her family, and genuinely seemed concerned about what he was going through. I don’t see anything but good things happening for her and wish her nothing but success in her future.

I have learned quite a bit over the last year and a half, some things that I wish I could forget, and some I know I never will.

I learned what a horrible disease that Alzheimer's is. Without question the most ruthless disease out there. I would not wish it on my worst enemy.

I also learned that you can never be "too prepared" for the inevitable. By taking care of our own affairs, by getting our wills and the power of attorney, has helped me sleep better at night. I also have become a vocal advocate of it to all my friends about doing it for themselves and making sure that their parents are prepared too. I even talk to complete strangers about it. Hopefully you will get some clients out of it.

Thank you again,
