Welcome to the website of the Barbara Katz Law Firm, P.C. This law firm was established to meet the legal needs of families through the various stages of life. Our practice emphasizes the needs of a diverse client base, including individuals and families from both traditional and non-traditional backgrounds, such as single parents, older parents, lesbian and gay couples, and transgendered individuals.
Our practice areas concentrate on the creation of families through adoption and through assisted reproductive technology (or “ART”). We counsel and assist clients in completing prenuptial or partnership agreements. We also assist clients in their wills and estate planning needs, including the creation of living or testamentary trusts for the benefit of one’s spouse or partner, and minor children. We handle name changes for individuals, couples and children who seek a change of name to fit their familial or gender identity. And finally, we assist clients through the probate process.
Please feel free to explore the website and to contact us with any questions or to set up an appointment.
COVID-19 Message: In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, all employees, clients and visitors to our office are required to wear a mask at all times. Our office is located in a small ranch house and we meet with clients in the conference room located next to the reception area. Inside the conference room, we maintain a social distance of six feet, as advised by the CDC. Whenever possible, we will hold meetings via Zoom at the client’s option, including all initial consultations. The one exception is the meeting at which clients will be signing their Last Will & Testament, which will be held in person.
