In addition to serving on boards, the SMT team volunteers time with the local courts to improve access to justice for all in Sonoma County.
The law is a complex and diverse profession. As has been the case for more than 25 years, the attorneys of SMT are available to help in many subject areas including business transactions, civil litigation, trusts and estates, mergers & acquisitions, employment, equity compensation, financing, intellectual property, real estate and ADR. Their practices serve the diverse industries of Sonoma County including agriculture, wine, beer & spirits, software and technology, health care, manufacturing, hospitality, government, non-profits, and real estate.
SMT attorneys are firmly committed to providing quality service in an efficient manner. Whether representing family members in a business succession process, employers wrestling with complex labor regulations, or parties in the challenges of a lawsuit, they pride themselves on prompt, personal attention. Their success is reflected in repeat and referral business from long-standing clients. It is also reflected in the numerous accolades it has received.
