Eric S. Gullotta, Attorney at Law
I was born in Petaluma and raised in Sonoma and Glen Ellen. I love my community and give back when I can. I pride myself on providing a relaxed yet professional environment where we can solve your estate planning or probate needs. By operating in a positive atmosphere, success and satisfaction are accomplished.
I write a monthly column for the Sonoma Sun titled "Before It's Too Late" where I provide information on how to avoid estate planning and probate messes before they happen. Being a little proactive goes a long way.
In addition, I have attained dual professional accreditations. I started my career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and got my Masters degree in taxation. Finally, I went to law school locally at Empire College. As a CPA and attorney, I pick up on tax issues that may be missed.
When I am not hard at work handling estate planning and probate for my clients, I enjoy spending time with my children, practicing my hobby of digital photography and brewing my own beer. If you become a client, you just might get some!
