  • Keith A. Siddel

    Somita Basu is one of the most energetic and intelligent attorneys I know. She is diligent, thorough, hard-working and - best of all - she is an incredible person to be around. She understands the law and the complexity required to ensure your estate plan stands the test of time. Her demeanor is professional and knowledgeable which is important should you ever need her to appear in court on your behalf. She will take excellent care of you because she cares. I highly recommend Somita.

  • Zakiya J. McCullough

    Somita is an extremely smart, hard-working attorney. She takes time to ensure things are done efficiently and precisely, but more than that, she treats each of her clients with class, dignity, and respect. Somita takes the time to explain complex legal concepts to her clients in terms they can understand. If I had to choose someone to be my litigator and/or personal attorney, Somita would be my first choice.
