As two of the foremost authorities on Special Needs Trusts in California, attorneys Carol S. Battaglia and Mary L. Waltari founded the law firm of Battaglia & Waltari in 2011 to better serve the legal needs of Southern California’s disabled and special needs communities. Upon Mary Waltari’s retirement in 2021 and attorneys Anthony J. Battaglia and Bronson E. DeKoning succeeding to partners, the firm was renamed to Battaglia & DeKoning. Our experienced attorneys offer a full suite of legal services, including Estate Planning, Special Needs Trusts, Public Benefits Planning, Conservatorships, Probate, and Trust Administration.
