Already known as a fierce advocate who thrives in the face of adversity, Senior Associate Michelle C. Bartolic can now add recognition as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in Estate & Trust Litigation. Since she first started practicing law, her focus has been on trust and estate litigation, fiduciary representation, and financial elder abuse.
A passionate advocate
Passion drives Michelle in helping to navigate her clients through the challenges in litigating highly personal and oftentimes delicate family matters. Client relationships are a significant source of pride. From the moment she takes on a case, she focuses on efficient and effective resolutions. She also sees the value of her clients adhering to their obligations that protect them from liability.
An attorney’s passion for protecting the elderly safeguarding the vulnerable is paramount during a time when the population of older people is growing to unprecedented levels. Her devotion often sees her speaking out on the issues surrounding financial elder abuse and takes the time to educate her peers on warning signs, prevention, and legal remedies to counter, if not combat, sinister acts of senior and dependent adult abuse.
When not championing her clients and the causes she believes in, Michelle enjoys the great outdoors where she camps, hikes, climbs, and backpacks throughout California’s diverse outdoor spaces.
The Gostanian Law Group, PC, congratulates Michelle and looks forward to celebrating what will likely be additional accomplishments in the future.
