Client Reviews
Doug M. June 26, 2021
Empathetic approach to her work Svetlana had assisted my wife and I with developing our will and living trust. Throughout the process she had taken the extra time and care to ensure that we were clear about the steps involved, and the decisions that we were making. We especially appreciated her responsiveness whenever we may have had questions about anything, as well as her empathy for individuals like ourselves who were making arrangements for our loved ones. We highly recommend her services.
Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

The Law Office of Svetlana Kristal focuses on wills and trusts: complete estate plans, estate plan reviews and updates (trusts and wills), probate, and trust administration.

Whether you need help creating a new estate plan, updating an existing plan, assisting elderly parents or administering an estate after the death of a loved one, Svetlana is ready to offer legal solutions tailored to your needs and the needs of your family.

I believe that estate planning is more ‘life planning’ than ‘death planning’. And the main goal of estate planning is to give people the legal tools they need to navigate marriage and relationships, to deal with family obligations, to take care of the most significant people in our life: spouses or partners, children or aging parents.

Estate planning allows us to put our life in order, to protect our property upon incapacity, to keep it for those we want to protect, and, finally, to live and die on our own terms, according to our own desires and beliefs.
