About Us

More about the Soto Law Firm: Our philosophy, methodology, and our team.

A Note From Denise:

At our first meeting, you may have a lot of questions, or you may not know what your questions are. I am happy to take the time you need to learn about what you want to accomplish and I will educate you about the types of documents that are best for you and your situation. It is my belief that everyone’s needs are different and I will ask you questions or answer your questions as you need.

My philosophy is to problem-solve issues first; often there may be disputes to resolve. We can assist in obtaining a mutually-agreeable solution. However, if it is not possible to simply problem-solve and facilitate a solution, we litigate Estate Planning and Elder Law issues when appropriate.

We want you to feel comfortable communicating with us. We provide a relaxing atmosphere and adhere to this philosophy, which allows us to provide quality representation by a lawyer you can get to know and with whom you can feel comfortable communicating.
