Meet the Team

Phil Curtin

In 1991, I founded Curtin Law Office. My practice has focused on estate planning and elder law, Medicaid issues and probate administration, and I have added attorneys and staff to create a firm with the requisite experience and expertise to concentrate on all aspects of estate planning and related legal services.

Brendan Wile

I joined the Curtin Law Office in 2022 after spending six years working in litigation. Now focusing my practice on elder law and estate planning as well as formation and planning for businesses, I enjoy working with clients to solve problems, achieve peace of mind, and to put them and their families in a position to succeed. I also enjoy building new professional relationships in the community and within area organizations.

Jennifer Holmes-Griffin

In 2003, I joined the Curtin Law Office, where I focus my practice on elder law and estate planning for individuals and businesses. If someone should ask me what I enjoy most about the practice of law, my answer is “Helping people be successful and providing them with the tools to minimize stress in difficult situations.”

Deb McQuate

“I joined the firm as a senior Paralegal in 2014, bringing with me over 25 years working with general practice law firms, including family law, criminal, real estate and estate planning.  I thoroughly enjoy working closely with clients to help them achieve their estate planning/elder law goals and objectives.  My expertise lies in guiding them through the intricate processes of estate planning, probate and trust administration.  I am dedicated to making this often complex and daunting journey as seamless and comforting as possible for our clients.”


"I also enjoyed working with you. You were kind and comforting when I needed it most."

"Once again, a brief but sincere thank you for the legal expertise and professional and prompt legal services that you and your good firm recently rendered which, in fact, was a critical component in allowing us to reach a financial closure.  We understand that we contacted you on a short notice but your friendly, expedient and competent legal services were outstanding. My family has worked with Curtin Law Offices in the past and we knew of the firm’s good service model. Again, that model – including the sound legal advice and the prompt and diligent follow-up – was on display again and was most impressive.  On behalf of my mother – and my brother acting as Co-Trustee – we again thank you for assisting and thru your efforts, allowing the specific transaction to reach what we think is a successful closure."

"Thank you so much for the compassionate way in which you accommodated our family and for helping us to complete our long-overdue estate plan. Your entire team went the extra-mile in dealing with my wife's disability, yet made her feel most comfortable the entire time. Professional and very helpful..."
