Learn More About Attorney Schreiber

Because the areas of estate planning and elder law are complicated, Roberta has written two books for her clients, using simple language, free of the “legalese” that makes most laws and legal documents impossible to understand. If you would like more information about any of the topics in this website, please contact Roberta’s assistant, Jeanne Carabello, to request a complimentary copy of one, or both, of these books. They are “The Client’s Guide to Estate Planning” and “The Clients Guide to Advance Planning for Long-Term Care.” To keep down the cost of legal representation, Roberta has developed questionnaires to be filled out by her clients prior to meetings. The completed questionnaires provide the information she needs to draft estate planning documents, implement a plan to protect assets, to fill out applications for Medicaid (MassHealth) and other health care benefits, or complete probate forms and gift and estate tax returns. This allows Roberta to spend more of her time with you and your family, listening carefully, and explaining the laws and regulations that apply to your situation. She also has client checklists to help you navigate the process of selling your home, acting as executor of an estate or trustee of a trust, or gathering information to complete a MassHealth application. Her goal is simple: to work with you to implement a plan that will help you and your family achieve your goals, and to be an effective advocate and advisor when the unexpected happens.

Roberta is involved in her local community and is an active member of several organizations devoted to elder law and nursing home issues, legislation, and advocacy:

  • National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys
  • Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys
  • National Citizens’ Coalition for Nursing Home Reform
  • Massachusetts Bar Association, Probate and Taxation Sections
  • Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce
