Sonoma County Probate & Estate Litigation

Sonoma County Estate Attorney

With a rich history, Sonoma County has had its hand in grape-growing and wine cultivation as early as 1821. This early start in viniculture firmly established Sonoma County's reputation for wine tastings and romantic getaways. Sonoma County is home to boundless vineyards, coastal views, and a welcoming community. Rising businesses parallel this county's low-key, small-town vibe as Sonoma prospers without the urban negatives. The cultural stimulation of wine country allows for the creation of one of the most visited places in the Bay Area.
