Caring for our clients, protecting their assets.®
Estate Planning is so much more
than what you own.
It includes your history, your struggles and your triumphs. At Sonin Law, our planning includes an opportunity for you to pass on your values and your story to your descendants, as well as your material belongings.
You need more than a stack of paper to protect your dreams for your family's future. To keep up with changes in your family, your finances, and the tax laws, you need an ongoing relationship with an attorney who knows you and cares about your family. At Sonin Law, we take seriously being not just attorneys but also counselors at law. We aim to be your family lawyer for life.
When a loved one dies with only a will, or with no estate planning, you have stress piled on top of your grief. You don't have to handle probating the estate alone. Let Sonin Law guide you through the complex process.
When a loved one can no longer handle their finances, or can no longer care for themselves, someone may need to step in and take care of things for them. If no one has legal powers of authority to act, a court may need to be petitioned to establish a conservatorship.
Serving as trustee is demanding, with very specific rules that must be followed. Our office can guide you as you serve as trustee, or can succeed you as trustee, taking on the full responsibility.

Whether you’re preparing your own estate plan, administering a loved one’s estate, planning for your child with a disability, or taking the painful step of having an elderly parent conserved, we will walk with you through the process. We will be sure all the legal steps are taken, but we will also listen to you, answer all your questions, and make sure you feel part of the process all the way.
Mon-Fri | 8:30am - 5:00pm
Do you need advice regarding your estate plan, trust administration, or probate -- but it's difficult to take off work? We offer some evening appointments. Just let the receptionist know when you schedule.
Doing social distancing as much as possible? Zoom meetings are available and encouraged. The attorney is also happy to travel to your home and meet on an outside patio or deck. If you prefer or need in-person meetings, our staff wears masks and we require our visitors to wear masks (unless a health condition makes masks dangerous).
