Getting our estate planning documents done had been on my To Do list for about two years, since the birth of my first daughter. I think I put it off because I was intimidated to work with an attorney and because, aside from our life insurance policies, my husband and I don't have what many would consider a sizable estate. After coming across Sona at The Pump Station and cross referencing her glowing reviews on Yelp, I decided to go with Tatiyant's Law. I am so glad I did.
She is approachable, fair in her rates, thorough, very knowledgable and extremely easy to work with. She always followed up with us and explained things in an easy to understand manner. The entire process from start to finish took a lot faster than we thought (about a month). She is a parent too, and that helps a lot in working with her because she understood our schedules and she thinks of things to include in the estate plan that other attorneys might not consider. She is a pleasure to work with and just a nice person. I will continue to recommend her to my friends who are parents or planning to become parents.

I am a life insurance broker and work with estate planning attorneys regularly to help set up clients' trusts as beneficiaries in their life insurance policies, which is a standard (and recommended) practice in many cases. Of all the estate planning attorneys that I have met in my many years of practice, Sona by far excels for her commitment, professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge and experience. She is also very personable and warm, and somehow finds a way to keep it 'fun' as much as possible when dealing with the serious matter of making sure one's family and estate remain protected. A+ in my book and a good precedent for others to follow.

My husband and I hired Sona Tatiyants of Tatiyants Law in 2010 to complete our family's estate plan and were thrilled with the results. Not only is Sona incredibly trustworthy, personable and hard-working, but her knowledge of estate planning and the various tax laws is invaluable. My husband and I feel a huge sense of relief knowing our family's estate is in order, especially now that we have a son. I can't recommend Sona highly enough and guarantee any client fortunate enough to work with Sona will have their expectations exceeded.

I had a great experience with Tatiyants Law. Sona, the lead attorney, helped me create a Will. She answered all my questions in a very professional and timely manner. Not only was she extremely nice, but she was also very competent and thorough. I have peace of mind knowing that Sona worked on my Will. I would definitely recommend this law firm if you are in the market in creating a Will!

I would recommend Sona for setting up your trust. My wife and I wanted to setup a trust and Sona was the perfect lawyer for the job. She explained the whole process thoroughly and was there every step of the way.

I strongly recommend Sona for anyone in need of estate planning services. Sheâ€™s extremely competent, personable, diligent and great at what she does. From our initial consultation, individual planning meetings to drafting the estate documents and our final meeting, she always made every effort to ensure that all of my questions were answered and that she was tailoring the estate documents to my specific needs and requests. She made the whole estate planning process so much less complicated and worrisome for me, by taking the time to carefully review and explain everything. I especially appreciated her patience, responsiveness, insight and guidance. If you are looking for peace of mind and for an amazing attorney to assist you with your specific estate planning needs, look no further.

Sona is exceptionally good at explaining all the ins and outs of estate planning. It was a complicated process but she made it much, much easier. Plus, she is thorough. When it comes to our will and other family documents, we have peace of mind.

Sona assisted my wife and me with our estate planning and is also assisting me with some business law relating to my estate. We are totally satisfied with our experience with Sona. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and helpful and made the process simple and even enjoyable. Her pricing is also very fair and her turnaround time was perfect. I have already referred her to both family and business associates and would highly recommend her for legal services!

I asked Sona to review my existing will and trust, prepared earlier by another attorney. She then prepared a memo for me outlining the changes that need to be made in order to make my documents fool-proof. I am extremely grateful to her, and I have already recommended her services to all of my family and friends. Sona takes her job extremely seriously, and she knows what she is doing.

We were starting a family and I read all about creating a trust to protect our assets from going to probate. The more I looked into it in CA, the more I wanted to do it. I researched a ton of Lawyers and did my homework. Sona came highly recommended and I attended her free workshop to get a better idea of who she was and what she handled. She brought up everything that I had researched and I was thrilled that we found her. She spent ample time explaining the legal jargon to us and we asked a ton of questions. She was always informative and explained things clearly. We had some unusual issues and if Sona wasn't sure of the best way to handle it off the top of her head, she would research it and get back to us with options. She was always quick to respond to emails and calls. I feel a sense of relief and security that we have taken care of our trust and estate wishes to the fullest capacity. I have an organized binder of all our wishes on the shelf and I feel like I could still call on Sona for any future questions. I would recommend her to everyone!

As an attorney myself, I highly recommend Ms. Tatiyants. She prepared my trust. I refer all of my clients in need of estate planning to this highly qualified attorney. I am happy knowing that my clients are in good hands.

Sona helped create my family's estate plan that included a will, AHD, changing the mortgage deed among other aspects. She has a firm grasp of the law as well as customer service.
Every meeting and email exchange was productive and we were able to complete the process within 3 weeks. All our questions were answered to our satisfaction and all legal jargon was explained in simple, everyday language. I would highly recommend Sona to anyone needing estate planning services.

Sona Tatiyants prepared all our estate documents. Not only she was very professional, everything was done on time. She explained to us each document one by one. It was very easy to work with her. I highly recommend her to any family that needs any estate planning.

Sona explained everything in a very professional manner and I was extremely pleased at how easy she made everything for me. I was always able to get a hold of her when needed unlike a few other lawyers I have dealt with who take a case and disappear. Tatiyants Law helped me form my corporation and guided me through a few lengthy contracts I was going to enter.

Estate planning is something that we've intended to do for quite some time but it's one of those items where you just don't know where to start. We first attended one of Sona's free estate planning workshops. She presented clearly and concisely all the ins and outs of estate planning. The seminar alone was a huge step in the right direction. Since then we've put together our trust (we had some tricky and interesting challenges specific to our situation, none of which were a problem for her) and we're thrilled to have the peace of mind knowing that our estate plan is in place.
We highly recommend her. She's warm, personable, and incredibly sharp. We really felt we were in the best of hands.

You feel like you are talking to your friend she makes you feel comfortable and most importantly she knows what she is doing and she does the job right.
