About Our Team

Natalia Kabbe

Attorney, Founding Partner

“When I first started the firm, I had a clear picture of what the focus should be: relationships rather than transactions.  Your life doesn’t stop when you leave our office. And that means your estate plan can’t stop either.

When I say that we value a relationship with our clients, it is more than just a label. We take great pride in our efforts to keep a line of communication open—so you can tell us about changes in your life that could affect your plan, and we can tell you about recent changes in the law.”
