SSS Legal and Consultancy Services was founded by Manya Deva Natan, Esq. Manya began her legal career as a real estate attorney, first in Santa Monica and then later at the well-known law firm of Allen Matkins in Century City. Her client work included publicly traded REITS, as well as leading cellular phone companies.
She went on to start her own estate planning practice, with sub-specialties in real estate, asset protection, and international estate planning. She counsels individuals, couples and families on how to best organize, allocate, and distribute their estate to maximize their benefits while minimizing tax liability. Ms. Natan creates and implements sophisticated plans for high net worth individuals, while also offering straight-forward probate avoidance work for families in need of a revocable trust and supporting legal documents.
Ms. Natan received her law degree from Stanford University and her Master’s Degree from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. In between receiving her graduate degrees, she lived and worked in Bolivia assisting with small business development. She now brings her international background and expertise to her estate planning practice and assists with complex estates whenever money and people move transnationally.
In addition to being a California bar certified attorney in private practice, she is a published author in the area of mental, emotional, and physical wellness, has appeared multiple times on Good Morning America, and is regularly contacted by media outlets for commentary on health-related topics.
