Curtis Baker Sonnenberg Lawyer Profile

Active and in good standing

Biography

General practice - emphasis on client representation and counseling in Elder and Family Law. Sensitive to the growing need for elderly client representation and predisposed to this burgeoning area of law because of personal experience, and focusing on the many legal issues that affect all of us where plans for aging are concerned. My general law approach is not lost on an elder law focus as the legal issues we are encountering as we age are so numerous and diverse as well - Guardianships, Conservatorships, Powers of Attorney, Estate Administration, Probate matters and general Estate Planning are the obvious among them, but the list is long. Where I can, I use Collaborative Law & Mediation or other ADR techniques to help parties resolve their differences.

Areas of Concentration - Elder Law, Real Property Law, Family Law, Estate Planning, Probate, Appellate, Collaborative Law & Alternative Dispute Resolution (mainly Facilitative Mediation)
