Search for Elder Law Attorneys
Barbara Sonin developed a passion for the elderly and people with disabilities in her childhood. She treasured time with the neighborhood "grandma" who put candy canes on her pine tree every Christmas and told stories of her native Norway. She saw the difficulties faced by the neighbor with a profoundly disabled son, who took care of him at home at a time when no help was available for that care.
After decades working in financial positions in both large corporations and small start-ups, Barbara decided to pursue a second career as an attorney. She wanted to be a different kind of lawyer, one who is not just a technician. Barbara's goal is to provide a listening ear to help people express their real fears, desires, and goals, so she can address those fears, desires and goals in the plans she crafts.
At Sonin Law, we focus on preparing for our clients' futures. Death will eventually come to us all. But disability can come to even the young and healthy. We focus as much attention on planning for any temporary disability you may have as on providing for who will receive your property at your death.
Unfortunately, some people don't put a plan in place, and then become incapacitated by dementia, a stroke, or a terrible accident. If your loved one is in this situation, you may need to file for a conservatorship. This is a complicated legal filing. It legally removes most rights from the conservatee. You should speak to an attorney to see whether it's the best option and for help in filing it.
