Get to know lawyers from LiamLaw.com
~ written by Rosemary Pomeroy
What made you choose your primary area of law?
I love helping families. As an attorney who works exclusively in the probate and juvenile courts, I know I am truly helping people. As an adoption attorney I like to think I am participating in the creation of a new family unit. As a probate and estate planning attorney, I know I am helping clients plan for the future, with the proper estate planning documents. I also know that throughout the probate process I am helping clients in grieving the loss of a loved one, while still helping them with the financial and legal issues they face from that devastating loss.
What makes your law firm unique?
I am a sole practitioner, who likes to give quality legal services in a personal manner. Often, I answer my own telephone, and try to return most telephone calls within a 24 hour period. I like to get to know my clients and their families, not only so I can serve their legal needs, but because I truly care about them as individuals. I want clients to like their lawyer, and to come to me for advice both on a professional and sometimes personal nature. I love the trouble-shooting aspect of my job and hope I make a difference for my clients every day in some concrete way.
Describe your ideal client.
The ideal client to me is someone, who is a good listener, will provide me with the information I need to properly represent them, will pay my bill, or contact me if my bill seems unfair or too
high, and is someone who will work with me to accomplish their legal goals.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
First and foremost, I like to spend time with my husband Mark who is a technology attorney at JP Morgan Chase, my children Sarah (16) and Michael (13), and my beautiful Golden Retriever, Magic the Dog. If I have any free time after the busy-ness of my family, I like to play the piano, work out, cook, bake and needlepoint. I also plan to do a little more vacationing once my children are out of high school, with the hopes of getting to Ireland, England, Italy and maybe even Australia. My long term plans when I have more free time would be to play piano chamber music with other musicians.
