Meet The Team
Stephanie has over 10 years of experience in the legal field of trust and estate administration. On hand to assist with all phases of your estate planning process, probate & trust administration, and funding, Stephanie began her career as a Trust and Estates Paralegal in 2002 at a large Boston law firm in their Private Client Department and has spent the last several years at law firms in New Hampshire. Her goal at Hudkins + O’Neil is to support surviving family members by administering the estates of their loved ones with both promptness and compassion.
She’s truly a woman for all seasons, outside of the office she can be found with her family skiing slopes throughout New England or enjoying the sunshine and fresh air while skiing on the water.
Meaghan spends her days here at Hudkins + O’Neil editing basic estate planning documents, preparing deeds, and sending drafts for review to our clients prior to their signings. Need a document notarized? Meaghan does that too! She recognizes that clients come to us wanting to establish estate plans to make things easier for their loved ones when they pass and is fulfilled each day by the role she plays in this. Her dedication to our firm and clients is evident everyday as she learns more about estate administration and probate matters. She is happy assisting our staff and clients by day, and spending time hiking and exploring the outdoors with her husband and two children in her downtime.
