Hi, I am Marisol. Welcome!


I strive to empower my clients to make informed and impactful decisions. 

I will walk with you through the celebrations of life and death, taking care of the details so that you may cherish the memories.  

I endeavor to deeply listen to your wishes, desires and fears, and provide you with caring and effective legal counsel during times of transition.

My approach to law is influenced by my work as a crisis counselor, case manager for at-risk families and as a board member of social service, medical and mental health not-for-profit agency.  My background of supporting and educating families about their legal rights and responsibilities propelled me into law school and I have devoted my life to empowering myself with knowledge of the law.  

I began my career forming not-for-profit corporations, working with private foundations and assisting clients in forming their own charitable foundations within their estate plans. I eventually specializing as an estate planning/administration attorney. In 2010, I launched my own legal practice utilizing my holistic approach to law to support and guide clients through times of transition.

I melded my counseling background with my legal expertise and affirmed my strengths as an empathic and active listener. Using these skills, I will guide and assist you in cultivating a sense of calm, love and purpose within your own personalized legacy estate plans.


A bit more about me.

Yoga is the way I ground and center myself in an often turbulent world. Using my skills as a yoga instructor, I will guide and assist you in cultivating a sense of calm and purpose within your estate and corporate planning, allowing you to show up as yourself in the outside world.
