I focus on trust administration, probate practice, and estate and related planning for asset management and transfer. I have been practicing law since 2012 and joined private practice in 2019 after working for a number of years in legal aid. I enjoy working with clients to provide a high level of service and guide them through the estate planning or administration process. 

I received a B.S. in 1999, an M.S. in 2003, and a J.D. in 2012 all from Indiana University.

I am admitted to practice law in California (licensed in 2016) and am currently inactive in Indiana (licensed in 2012).

Professional and Personable
My mother and I had chosen to work with Lisa Laws Kohli to update our Trust. Our time spent with Lisa was always informative and direct. Lisa's communication throughout the process, whether face to face or written, was presented in a clear step by step process with easy to obtain goals which made the process seem much less daunting. Highly recommend the professional skill Lisa bring to the table.

Knowledgeable and great to work with
Lisa was great to work through as we changed some key aspects of how our family trusts were structured. She also very helpfully update our Wills and Health Care Directives, so that we were able to make the most out of the interactions with her. Highly recommend her and the team.

Consultation for setting up a trust
Lisa recently worked on creating a new trust for me; it took just a few weeks, I was provided with all clear informations throughout and with very little effort/work from my side, we got everything completed, signed and recorded. Thank you very much Lisa for your quick and knowledgeable support throughout this process!

Review of Lisa Kohli
Lisa Kohli was terrific. I need to amend my will , trust and associated documents. In my initial meeting with her, I explained the changes I wanted and she took notes and within a week sent drafts of the documents to me. We made some additional changes and then the final documents were prepared and I signed them. She was very helpful, explained various options and always responded quick quickly to my phone and email queries. I highly recommend her and will do so if any one I know is looking for a good trust or or estate planning attorney.
