Teresa Tallarita


Practice Emphasis

The estate planning process requires a creative and intuitive attorney who is prepared to patiently listen to and address each client’s specific needs and goals. Teresa is passionate about guiding clients through the process of preparing a comprehensive estate plan, including wills, trusts, health care directives and health care and financial powers of attorney. She is experienced across a wide range of business practices as well – including commercial and residential real estate and business transactions – all of which add to her ability to provide each client with estate planning strategies tailored to each client’s individual and unique objectives.

Teresa also handles the legal administration of large and small probates, which can often give rise to post-mortem tax planning. In addition, she works closely with our Family Law Practice Group as they work with high-net worth individuals to ensure their assets are distributed as intended and to protect parties involved through pre- and post-nuptial planning.

Teresa is a genuine sports fan and she and husband are long-time Husky Football season ticketholders. She also loves to travel and has visited all 50 states.
