Biography

Regina Snow Mandl, head of The Wagner Law Group's Trusts & Estates and Family Law teams, has over 30 years' experience specializing in family law, estate planning and administration, and probate litigation. The focus of her career has been to strive for excellence in the delivery of personal law services to individuals and families. While fully prepared to go to court when necessary, Regina believes that most matters can be resolved through negotiation, or a form of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or conciliation. Regina will counsel clients in these processes, and she is also a qualified mediator and conciliator. She has been selected annually to the prestigious Super Lawyers list since 2012.

Family Law

Regina's practice covers a wide range of family law matters including: contested and uncontested divorces, custody disputes, removal cases, modifications, contempt actions, restraining orders, pre-marital and post-marital agreements, guardianships, and conservatorships. Regina has a particular knowledge of inherited property cases in divorce, and has handled divorce cases involving family assets of $25,000,000 and more.

Estate Planning and Administration

Regina offers clients a comprehensive estate plan, including: wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, HIPAA releases, living wills and declaration of homestead. When the time comes, Regina will efficiently guide her clients through the process of probating the estate.

Probate and Family Law Litigation

Regina will counsel clients who engage in mediation and collaborative law. However, she understands that this does not always work. When this happens and alternative dispute resolution is not viable, Regina represents clients in contested family law and probate litigation matters, including divorces, child custody and removal cases, will contests, claims against the estate, guardianships, conservatorships, and petitions to partition real estate.
