Rachel and Lara started Heisler Rosenfeld, LLP in 2020 because their families were what was most important to them, and they shared a common goal of wanting to assist and support other individuals and families who felt the same way. Rachel and Lara met while working for another trust and estates law firm and immediately recognized that not only did they collaborate successfully, but they had shared values and similar goals.

 

Heisler Rosenfeld, LLP stands for zealous client advocacy and compassion. The firm is well-rounded, handling all aspects of estate and probate law from proactive estate planning to conservatorships and guardianships.
