About Me

Lynn E. O’Brien is a partner at Pabian & Russell, and focuses her practice on estate planning and the administration of trusts and estates. Her expertise includes designing, drafting, and implementing tax-efficient estate plans. She advises personal representatives and trustees in connection with the administration of estates and trusts. Lynn has also established and advised not-for-profit organizations; including the preparation and filing of applications for federal tax exemption.

With her technical background in the complexities of corporate, tax, and real estate transactional work, she is uniquely qualified to work with clients on all aspects of planning as it relates to their real estate and business transactions. Lynn takes great care to provide her clients with a thorough understanding of the strategies and methods used to set and achieve their estate planning goals.

Before joining Pabian & Russell, Lynn was an associate at Looney & Grossman, LLC. Prior to that, Lynn was an associate at Masterman, Culbert & Tully LLP, where she practiced in the areas of general corporate and business law, commercial real estate law, and estate planning and administration. Following law school, Lynn was a senior associate in the Boston tax department of Coopers and Lybrand.

She enjoys summers on Cape Cod with her family, boating and soaking up the sun on the beach. As a soon-to-be empty nester, Lynn is looking forward to new opportunities to work in her community and with other charitable organizations.
