About Paula

As an estate planner, Paula is adept at helping clients navigate through the often-complex estate-planning process and educating them about critically important estate choices. What inspires her most in her practice is assisting those she represents to administer an estate during difficult times. From drafting a basic will to working through the most complex estate administration, through her caring expertise, Paula has assisted thousands of clients in gaining peace of mind about their inheritance and estate matters.

To say Paula is active in her community is an understatement. She was an adjunct faculty member at Elms College, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Mont Marie Health Care Center and served on its Finance Committee, and in her hometown of Longmeadow she served on the Conservation Commission, the Historical Commission, and Long Range Planning Steering Committee.
Paula retired as a full time attorney in 2020, but remains Senior Counsel to Egan, Flanagan & Cohen. and continues to advise the firm and clients on Estate Planning and Administration issues.
