Wendy W. Weston
About Wendy W. Weston

Wendy Weston is a welcome addition to Surprenant & Beneski, P.C. Having received her Juris Doctor from the University of Massachusetts School of Law in January 2021, she has already proven her determination and competence in many areas of jurisprudence as well as her deep concern for those she represents.

The six years Wendy worked as a MassHealth Medicaid Administrator have given her valuable experience, both in terms of productive results and in terms of enhancing her natural compassion. She considers herself blessed for having had the opportunity to help a low-income client qualify for a waiver of $50,000 under new MassHealth rules for beneficiaries, enabling that individual to save her family home. 

This experience is only one example of the generous spirit that makes her well-suited to our practice’s commitment to ongoing participation in local food drives, charity walks, and other ventures to support the community we serve. 

Wendy has the values and skill set we look for in an excellent estate planning attorney.

She knows how to ask the right questions, understand client goals as they interface with legal and tax matters, and assist in removing the roadblocks that inevitably appear. She also is well aware of the need for estate planning lawyers to specialize in this legal discipline in order to have a comprehensive knowledge of its inner workings and be able to keep current with the complexities and changes of estate planning and tax laws.

Her extensive research in particular aspects of the law makes her appreciative of the needs filled by Surprenant & Beneski and well aware of how she can assist us in educating and serving the community with our broad network of financial planners, tax accountants, banks, home health companies, and nursing homes in the region stretching from Southeastern Massachusetts to Outer Cape Cod.

Most of all, Wendy Weston has a keen awareness of how important it is that our estate planning attorneys pay attention to each client’s unique perspective. Like the other members of our skilled law team, she works equally comfortably with older clients, adult children, and other relatives, each of whom may view investment, retirement, asset protection, and potential incapacity through a different lens.

How would you convey to a prospective client how you participate in the firm’s team approach?

In life, no one has all the answers and the same can be said for any team. We come together in a way to channel all our strengths for the good of our clients. We learn from each other along the way in order to reinforce the knowledge of our organization and provide an improved client experience with every interaction.

What do you like about working at the firm?

This firm is well balanced for growth. We have a staff of team players that realize working together is best for the clients and for each other. It feels good to work among a supporting cast of individuals who each take their turn to step up when they are needed.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I am frequently at soccer fields, basketball courts and baseball or softball diamonds following the achievements and development of my son and daughter. I also live on Cape Cod so water sports and beach days fill in any days off from games and practices.

What is 1 surprising fact about you or surprising talent you have?

I have played three different instruments in my life. Clarinet, trombone and Sousaphone. My kids now play my clarinet and the trombone both my dad and I played in high school and college. Also, I worked at the 1994 World Cup Soccer Tournament and the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

Do you have a personal motto or favorite quote?

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.” 

Charlie Brown: “Someday we will all die, Snoopy!” Snoopy: “True but on all the other days, we will not.”
