Molly Carmody

"When I made the decision to become an attorney, I knew I wanted to be in a field where I could work closely with individuals and families on complex and difficult matters. Elder law is the perfect fit for me and I find it very rewarding to be able to help my clients reach their goals and to know that they and their families are taken care of."
