About Me

Maritess expertly structures a wide range of documents ranging from simple, individual wills and trusts, to complex plans involving family limited partnerships, closely-held businesses and special needs trusts.  She takes pride in her ways to deal with asset preservation, tax planning, business succession, and the full spectrum of other estate related issues.  She is a skilled professional who understands that sorting out the finer points of an estate is an important task that can often be intimidating and complicated for her clients, but they find that her compassionate manner and ability to untangle the details and simplify matters, inspires their trust.

  • Christopher Salvatore Scarcella

    I'm interested in joining the prestigious American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys, and was encouraged to reach out to Ms. Bott. I did so, and am very grateful for her insight. An attorney's time is valuable, and she was very generous with it and open with me regarding her experiences and how she manages a successful private practice. A class act, and an asset to the community. I'm looking forward to seeing her in San Diego in October!
