“When we recently had to place my mother in a Boston nursing home, Mr. Amaru’s experience and in-depth knowledge helped us to easily navigate several complicated elder care legal issues with minimal stress and confusion. In fact, the entire Commonwealth Advisory Group team supported us in many meaningful and important ways. I sincerely recommend Mr. Amaru and his team to anyone looking for legal assistance regarding MA elder law, estate planning, and MA Medicaid planning. Thanks!”

“I was looking for a Estate Planning Attorney in Boston and a friend suggested CWG. We had to place my mother in a nursing home a couple of years after my father passed away, and we thought everything was going to be fine. However, we quickly learned that it was unbelievably expensive and that every assest my parents had worked so hard for was going to be gone in no time. Commonwealth Advisory Group came up with a plan that litteraly saved us … and our assets!”
— The Wilson Family
“We never dreamed that we would be using Medicaid to ensure my dad was cared for in his final years. However, when our time of need arrived, the team at Commonwealth Advisory Group was there to carefully walk us through the Medicaid application process step-by-step. They made it so easy and understandable. I am so grateful for their expertise and professionalism. I strongly recommend them to anyone in Massachusetts who is caring for an elderly spouse or a family member.”
