Chiara Mattieson

Attorney at Law

Over the course of my nearly two-decades-long career in the legal industry, I have had the opportunity to help countless clients facing difficulties in nearly every area of law. My diverse and expansive experiences have shaped me into the adaptable attorney I am today. When I'm not advocating for my clients, I'm pursuing my other passions, which include being a dedicated horsewoman, a proud family woman, and a devoted dog owner. I'm a member of the board of directors of Horses' Haven, a non-profit equine sanctuary and adoption facility. My compassionate and determined nature serves me well in both my professional and personal pursuits. Whether you're ready to plan for the future or you need to protect your business, I'm up to the challenge.


"I tell you what you need to hear because I believe transparency is key to achieving favorable results."

Set Yourself & Your Loved Ones Up for Success

If you want to ensure that the transfer of your property is executed according to your wishes when you've passed, setting up a comprehensive estate plan with the assistance of an attorney can be extremely beneficial. I provide top-notch legal guidance to those looking to plan for the future of their property and estate, and I do so at a reasonable price. If you're interested in setting up trusts, designating beneficiaries, drafting a will, and more, reach out to me today.

When a loved one has passed and the time comes to administer his or her estate, don't face it alone. This complex process is often overseen by the probate court and can be time-consuming and emotionally draining. During this difficult time, you should be able to focus on healing and moving forward. Allow me to take the lead in the probate process and guide you toward a resolution.

In a perfect world, your loved ones will have clearly laid out what should happen to their property and assets when they pass, and all parties involved will agree to the terms. However, this is not always the case. When a dispute occurs over a trust or throughout probate, you should seek the help of a skilled litigator to protect your best interests. I have nearly two decades of legal experience, making me an exceptional partner for your probate and trust litigation needs.
