Welcome to TREVERI LAW PC
Based in beautiful Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, Karin Vandevenne Foster founded Treveri Law, PC on the premise that everyone needs an ADVOCATE and EDUCATOR in the areas of law that will affect them in cases of incapacity and death. Building a long term collaborative relationship with an estate planning attorney can help you, your family and your business when facing a debilitating event, as well as facilitate asset protection and distribution after your passing.
At Treveri Law, we ONLY do estate and legacy business planning and now through our partnership with the MINDFUL LEGACY INSTITUTE, mediations exclusively focused on Estates and Families. We do not participate in divorces, general litigation, DWI or plaintiffs work. We have specialized in and love doing purposeful legal planning with families and with business owners. We build long-term relationships with our clients so that their legal documents, which are so much more than just "legalize," are as up to date as possible. Over the many years of working with families and business owners on their estate planning, we have worked to encourage holistic educational approaches towards communicating with family members, fiduciaries, heirs and even key business personnel. After all, your life and therefore your estate planning and business succession needs may be very different three years from now. With the unexpected curve balls life and world-wide pandemics may throw at you, having a comprehensive plan in place in case of incapacity or death is paramount.
Through our exciting new partnership with the MINDFUL LEGACY INSTITUTE, we now have expanded opportunities to educate, coach and mediate family discussions around the issues of Estate Planning, Incapacity Management and ultimately Trust and Probate administration.
At Treveri Law and the Mindful Legacy Institute, we are honored and humbled to have the privilege to work with clients representing a diverse swath of socio-economic, cultural and educational backgrounds in the interest of collaborative building of Estates, Families and Futures.

"in this World, nothing is certain except Death and Taxes"
- Benjamin Franklin
No matter how large or small your estate may be, there are things we can not control. Most of us have no idea exactly when we will die. We have no idea what the tax structure will look like when we die - or the mindsets of our heirs and beneficiaries. Be we do know that we cant take any of our worldly possessions with us.
But we can plan. Estate Planning is all about making a plan in advance of your incapacity or death; naming the people or organizations you want to care for you, your minor children and your family and naming your beneficiaries to receive the things you own after you die. A good estate plan will use insurance tools to benefit your family in case of an extended illness or loss of income or disability of a business owner or breadwinner. It will protect your loved ones if they are minors, or in the middle of a divorce, lawsuit or bankruptcy proceeding. If the receipt of established disability benefits for special needs might be lost with gaining an inheritance, your estate plan can protect their inheritance while still allowing for receipt of disability payments. Taking the steps now to design and communicate your plans will help your family and key agents to carry out your wishes.
Karin Foster of Treveri Law, PC provided top notch legal services for our family. Karin is a master of her craft and possesses a superior knowledge of the law. The level of organization in her work and the resulting final product were unrivaled and on par with the cost. Karin was a pleasure to work with in all aspects and went above and beyond to ensure we could complete the process from the sanctity of our home. We would highly recommend Karin and look forward to our continued future relationship.

Karin developed an Estate Planning Portfolio that included end of life documentation such as will, advance directive, power of attorney, etc. We had this done to comply with New Mexico's laws since we just moved from Fl where we had one completed. My wife and I were impressed by her focus on details in developing a comprehensive plan, much more so then one we had in Florida. I would highly recommend her legal acumen in developing a comprehensive plan for the future.

Karin is fantastic. We recently moved to New Mexico and had our living trust redone. She is very thorough in providing the ins and outs of New Mexico law. Karin's knowledge, professionalism and very easy to speak with made our visits enjoyable. Karin brought up some information we weren't aware of and are very grateful.
Our visits were relaxing and she made us feel very comfortable. We highly recommend Ms Foster for your legal needs. If we could give 10 stars we would. Thank you Karin.
