PROTECTING YOUR Legacy
Our clients are the best part of our job. We want to learn about your family, your goals, and your wishes. This is not just a “transaction”. We strive to build long lasting relationships with our clients.
At Scarola Law, we believe planning is essential for people of all ages, regardless of wealth, family status, or current health. It gives you the opportunity to make decisions about many of the most important issues in your life and the people you love--from naming a guardian for your child to appointing someone to carry out your wishes with respect to your health and finances. We use a holistic approach to estate planning and take the time to truly listen and find out what’s important to you, then tailor your estate plan specifically to your circumstances and goals. We will help you plan for the unexpected so your wishes are known and your loved ones are protected through an estate plan.
MEET COLLEEN SCAROLA, ESQ.
I graduated from The John Marshall Law School in 2006 and have more than a decade of legal experience representing individuals and businesses. As a mother and a wife, a sister, and a former caregiver to my late mother, I particularly enjoy working with families with young children and those caring for aging parents. I know how difficult it can be to balance our many responsibilities and plan for the future. Estate planning and probate and trust administration allow me to draw upon my prior legal experience and my long-time commitment to helping and educating others.
