About Me

Family Law touches upon the most vital and visceral aspects of our lives: our children, our spouses, our property, our money, our emotional and psychological well-being. I have found that a strong, zealous and caring advocate is the best weapon when faced with legal changes to familial relationships. I endeavor to be just such an advocate for my clients. 


For over a decade I owned and operated a litigation support company  in New York and Boston that assisted trial attorneys in the managment and litigation of their cases.  This gave me the opportunity to see numerous attorneys in practice and what worked (and didn't work) in attorney/client relations and the practice of law.  When I became an attorney myself I brought that knowledge and experience into my own practice. 


Contact me if you are facing, or are contemplating, a legal action. You will be pleased with the personalize attention your individual matter receives.

  • Rachel L. Engdahl

    I endorse this lawyer. It has been my pleasure to have the opportunity to do business with Attorney Matta. Estella’s knowledge and application of the law is evident throughout her work. Attorney Matta is not only a great advocate for her clients, she is willing to work closely with opposing counsels in order to negotiate and keep issues out of court.
