I’m Tanya Schultz, and I am a dedicated and experienced Probate Paralegal. With a passion for the legal field and a strong commitment to helping families navigate through challenging times, I have devoted my career to assisting clients in all aspects of elder care and probate matters.
My journey in the legal profession began with a deep desire to make a positive impact on people’s lives. After completing my Associates Degree in Legal Studies, obtaining my certification as a paralegal, then I went back to college to obtain a B.S. in Business Management from Bay Path University. I knew that elder law was the area where I could truly make a difference. The intricate nature of probate cases and the sensitivity they entail drew me in, and since then, I have been actively involved in assisting individuals and families during their times of need.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with compassionate attorneys and alongside families facing various probate issues. My experience has allowed me to develop a keen understanding of the complexities of the probate process, from initial estate administration to estate planning, asset distribution, and probate litigation, if necessary. I take great pride in ensuring that every aspect of the probate process is handled with the utmost care, attention to detail, and respect for the wishes of the deceased and the needs of their loved ones.
One of my strengths as a probate paralegal is my ability to provide empathetic support to grieving families while offering clear and concise guidance. I understand that navigating the probate process can be emotionally overwhelming, and my goal is to ease the burden by offering a compassionate and understanding approach. I believe that open communication and trust are vital in establishing a successful working relationship with clients, and I am always ready to listen to their concerns and answer any questions they may have.
In addition to my strong commitment to the legal profession, I am dedicated to continuing my education and staying up to date with the latest developments in probate law.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, scrapbooking, camping and the beach. I also serve on the Board of Directors as Secretary of Wishes on Wheels, Inc. to benefit Make A Wish CT. I believe that giving back to the community is essential, and it aligns with my desire to help others in any way I can. Raised in East Hartford and have made my home in Glastonbury with my husband, 2 daughters and many animals.
