Regina Snow Mandl, Partner

Regina Snow Mandl has over 27 years of experience specializing in family law, estate planning and probate administration, and probate litigation. The focus of her career has been to strive for excellence in the delivery of personal law services to individuals and families. While fully prepared to go to court when necessary, she believes that most matters can be resolved through settlement be it through the traditional structure of negotiation with independent counsel, or a form of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or collaborative law.

Family Law

Regina’s practice covers a wide range of family law matters including: divorces, pre-marital and post-marital agreements, modifications, contempt orders, restraining orders, custody disputes, guardianships, and conservatorships.

Estate Planning, Trusts and Probate

Regina offers clients a comprehensive estate plan, including:  wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, HIPAA releases, and a declaration of homestead. When the time comes, Regina will efficiently guide her clients through the process of probating the estate.

Probate & Trust Litigation

Regina will counsel clients who engage in mediation and collaborative law. However, she understands that this does not always work. When this happens and alternative dispute resolution is not viable, Regina represents clients in contested family law and probate litigation matters, including divorces, will contests, claims against the estate, guardianships, and petitions to partition real estate.

Regina has a particular knowledge of inherited property cases in divorce, and has handled divorce cases involving family assets of $25,000,000.
