Autumn Ronda, a member of our Tax and Wealth Planning Department, has been certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization as a legal specialist in the practice of Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law.

This prestigious designation is awarded through a certification program approved by the California Supreme Court, which offers attorneys the opportunity to become certified by demonstrating the highest competence in their practice area. 

To become a certified specialist in the area of Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law, attorneys must complete additional studies in their specialty field, pass a rigorous one-day written specialty bar examination, and verify that they have acted as counsel to a substantial number of clients with matters involving estate planning, trust and probate law.

Attorneys seeking certification must also receive favorable evaluations from other attorneys and judges, and the State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization must approve each attorney’s application.

Autumn specializes in designing and implementing sophisticated estate planning strategies for her clients. She also handles complex trust and probate administration matters, and practices in a wide range of other transactional areas, including income tax planning, international tax planning, charitable planning, and business and real estate transactions.

Autumn regularly writes for legal publications and is a speaker at prestigious legal conferences. She has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, where she taught the law school’s course in Estate Planning.

Autumn was selected by her peers for inclusion in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions of Best Lawyers in America for her contributions to the Trust and Estates community, and was also designated a “Rising Star” among Southern California lawyers each year since 2013 by Super Lawyers Magazine.

Valensi Rose congratulates Autumn on her achievement of this distinguished recognition.
