Collins Ostrom PLLC is a boutique law firm practicing in the areas of estate planning, probate, and estate administration. Carolyn Ostrom established the firm in January 2007, upon leaving a large law firm where she had practiced for many years. Carolyn started the firm in order to have a sophisticated law practice in a warm, comfortable, and friendly setting, and we believe that is exactly what we offer each of our clients. The firm has grown to three lawyers, each of whom have over 25 years of legal experience. Before joining Collins Ostrom, attorneys Rosemary Sullivan and Mary Alice Feeney both practiced in considerably larger firm and corporate settings. They, like Carolyn, enjoy the smaller practice environment and the opportunity to provide clients with particularly personalized estate planning and probate services. Assistants Sue Morris and Amy Winn round out the team at Collins Ostrom PLLC and take excellent care of the firm’s clients as well as its lawyers.
