Estate Planning and Probate
Personal and confidential service to a diverse range of net worth clients and their families is a longstanding and successful tradition at Noto & Noto PLLC. We focus only on consulting and litigating in this area. This rapidly developing field of law requires a close, longstanding relationship between the client and his or her attorney. Noto & Noto PLLC is committed to continuing to serve this need, as we have for generations, and to apply the same creative problem-solving skills and client focus we use throughout our practice.
We are trial lawyers. We regard litigation as a business strategy and as an investment decision for our clients. We believe in aggressive case management, including early case assessment, client connectivity and ready use of cost-saving discovery and trial technology.
Clients’ ability to achieve their objectives in litigation – a favorable settlement or a trial win – are enhanced by counsel who are known for taking cases to trial. We are proven trial attorneys. Our lawsuit planning always includes conservation of client funds and executive time for trial – when it counts. Proceeding to trial is not always the wisest course, but when it is, our clients are represented by trial veterans.
Business and Investment Decision
For our clients, filing and defending litigation is, foremost, a business strategy and a decision about investment of resources – fees, management attention, executive time and client prestige. We build case strategy and staffing around the client’s objectives and investment parameters for the case.
Aggressive Case Management
Lawsuits, investigations and other dispute proceedings require continual attention to efficient, effective use of resources. Our Litigation practice regularly incorporates best practices from clients, our own experience and other firms to improve our skills and execution in early case assessment methodologies, our management of discovery and motions practice and use of litigation technology.
