At DangerLaw LLC, founded by Attorney Deborah Danger, we work with our clients to protect their wishes and care for their families. Whether it’s customized Estate Planning (wills, trusts, health care proxy etc.) or Family Law (prenuptials, divorce, custody and support issues), our Roslindale clients rely on us to help them navigate these challenging life situations.
Following are some of our areas of specialty:
Estate Planning Law
Some people assume that Estate Planning is only about asset allocation… not true! Let’s face it: life is filled with unanticipated events. A well drafted Estate Plan can protect you and help your loved ones answer unanticipated and life-changing questions that arise about your life, death, sickness and the unknown.
We handle the full spectrum of divorce alternatives, from mediation and collaborative law to litigation. We understand what a tough time going through a divorce can be for our clients, and we help them with critical issues such as custody and support issues, and the division of property. We even provide a team of experts from related fields to help our clients, and host special “Divorce Bootcamp” events. Bottom line: we protect our clients, their families and assets by guiding them through the legal process and advocating for them 24/7.
Child Custody Law
Custody matters can be confusing, emotional, and overwhelming. When faced with the unknown, having an advocate you can trust will allow you to reach the best possible outcome. Our thoughtful team approach will help you handle your case with grace and humility while protecting your assets and transitioning your family into its next phase of life. Let us help you make the right moves.
Are you deciding whether to enlist help caring for someone who is losing their ability to live independently? Do you feel ambivalent about doing so? Deborah’s experience with this challenging part of life may benefit you and your loved ones.

More About Our Services for Roslindale Residents
We Specialize In Estate Planning And Family Law
When it comes to estate planning it is all about allowing our clients to have the piece of mind that should something happen, there are protections and instructions to ensure the client their wishes will be carried out.
It is tempting to delay having these matters taken care of. We often tell ourselves there is time, we are in good health and so on. But injuries and illnesses can come unexpectantly and often it is then too late to do all you can to protect yourself, your family and your assets.
This can be easily prevented however, by simply taking the time to work with an experienced law firm that can help put a legal strategy in place that will protect all of your personal and business assets along with designating someone you trust as a Power of Attorney, and even specific instructions on how and why you want certain things carried out in the event of your incapacitation or death.
While thinking of our own death or incapacitation may not be something we want to think about, the satisfaction of knowing we have the legal documentation and strategy in place that ensures our wishes are carried out, is worth it.
A complete legal strategy can include things like deeds, the designation of beneficiaries, who will succeed you in your business, retirement planning, financial and medical power of attorney, Limited Partnerships and LLC’s, establishing guardians for children and even pets, probate issues, revocable living trust, contested wills, other contested and uncontested issues, a Trust Administration for a special needs family member, health care directives and others.
There are many aspects of estate planning that might not come to your mind, but will be brought to your attention by a good law firm.
If you suddenly fall ill and are in need of long-term nursing care, does it mean that your entire estate will vanish paying for the exorbitant cost? If you fail to plan prior to the event, this is a real concern. But there are many legal strategies that can be put in place to ensure that the majority of your estate is left intact.
If you become incapacitated, is it possible that a business partner might make decisions that are not in your best interest or that of your family? It is certainly possible. But this can be greatly remedied by having the right legal strategy and documentation in place so that your wishes are carried out and your partner is bound by those documents.
What will happen to your under-aged children or a special needs child in the event of your incapacitation or death? There are many possibilities if you have not set up a legal designation for their guardianship and financial care. But by putting the legal documentation in place, you protect your family and ensure they are cared for by the person you choose and that they get the financial care they need from your estate.
