Harry S. Margolis has been representing seniors, individuals with special needs and their families since he started ElderLawServices, the predecessor of Margolis & Bloom in June 1987. Since then, he and the firm as a whole have helped thousands of clients pay for long-term care, grapple with the incapacity of a family member, and plan for safe and productive futures for their children and grandchildren.
As editor of The ElderLaw Report, a monthly newsletter for attorneys, Mr. Margolis stays abreast of legal developments both in Massachusetts and nationally. His leadership in the field has been recognized by his peers in his selection as a Fellow of both the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the American College of Trust & Estate Counsel. He has been named a “Super Lawyer” since 2005 and more recently was recognized as one of the top 100 attorneys in New England, the only elder law attorney to receive this honor.
But Mr. Margolis’ passion is explaining complex legal issues to consumers, to clients in his practice, to Massachusetts consumers through the information on this website and its blog, and nationally on two websites he founded: www.elderlawanswers.com and www.specialneedsanswers.com. He strongly believes that the best legal solutions are achieved through the partnership of well-informed clients and attorneys who combine great technical expertise, experience and an ability to listen.
In 2012, Mr. Margolis ran (unsuccessfully) for Governor’s Council. He has served as an elected town meeting member in Brookline and on the town’s bicycle advisory committee. When not working, Mr. Margolis resides in Brookline with his wife, high-school age twins and dog of uncertain breed. He runs, bicycles and is always looking for a ping pong partner.
