    We consider estate planning to be the cornerstone of trust and estate matters because a well drafted estate plan can keep an estate out of Probate Court, and a family out of litigation. Working with an attorney who is an estate planning attorney is a

  3. Probate
    25%
    The goal of estate planning documents is to avoid the time, cost, and personal toll that litigation takes. However, legal action is necessary in some situations. Only through litigation is it possible to fully assert your rights or defend yourself.

  4. Trusts

    We understand that after a loved one has passed away family dynamics often surge to an all-time high. Such dynamics can make an executor or trustees’ already demanding role even more challenging. This is why we at Brockway Law encourage yo

As Principal of Brockway Law, P.C. in Santa Rosa, California, my practice includes estate planning, wills and trusts, trust and estate litigation, trust and estate administration and probate matters. When a client walks in, sits down, and says, “I just want what's right,” that is my cue to stay quiet and keep listening. After all, expert advice is only as valuable as its relevance to the problem at hand. In my practice, the client comes first. My approach centers on compassion, candid communication, and strong advocacy. As a result, each individual receives sound legal counsel that is tailored precisely to their needs.
As a Santa Rosa native, I have deep roots in our community, and am proud to be raising my own family here. My young daughter has the benefit of a close knit Sonoma County family and my husband, a teacher, shares my passion for community involvement. Active participation in Rotary Club of Santa Rosa East and the Velo Fratello Cycling Team's support network gives me ongoing opportunities to advocate for local youth.
I am a cum laude graduate of Empire College School of Law, where I earned the Witkin Award for Constitutional Law. I also hold Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and Spanish from the University of California, Davis.
Prior to establishing Brockway Law, P.C., I was a Partner with a Santa Rosa trust litigation practice serving clients throughout the United States.
I am a member of the Sonoma County Bar Association Trusts and Estates Section, the State Bar of California Trusts and Estates Section, and Sonoma County Women in Law. I have also been voted a Super Lawyers Top Rated Attorney Rising Star in 2017 and 2018.

Simply the Best
Giuliana has been my attorney since 2012. I call her with issues and questions and she is quick to respond and thorough in her advice. I appreciate that as my attorney, she is thoughtful, and takes the time to communicate and confirm my understandings of her legal advice. As a real estate professional, I have referred clients and family members to Giuliana for estate planning and trust litigation matters. In each case I have received countless thanks for the referral to Giuliana. It pleases me to have Giuliana not only as my trusted attorney, but also as a solid attorney referral for my clients and family. I love having her in my corner. Simply the best around in my mind...Thanks again G!!!!!

In praise of Giuliana Brockway
Giuliana recently redid our trusts for us and made it a joint trust. She was thorough, very helpful and endlessly patient to make sure our needs and wants were fully explained and understandable to us. She answered questions of our attorneys for durable power for health care and finance and was very helpful to them as to their responsibilities. We feel very fortunate to have her on our team and would highly recommend her.

Giuliana is Fantastic!
Giuliana is FANTASTIC! My family and I were faced with a very disturbing situation and we weren't sure what to do or who to go to for help. I was referred to Giuliana. I explained our situation and Giuliana wanted to help. It's apparent she is passionate about what she does. Throughout the process Giuliana went above and beyond. It has been a pleasure working with her. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the help Giuliana and her firm have provided.
