Get To Know Our Firm

Norton Basu LLP focuses on estate planning and probate issues throughout the Bay Area. Founded by Zakiya Norton and Somita Basu, the firm provides real-world advice to clients in order to get real results in the most practical way possible.

Zakiya J. Norton and Somita Basu founded Norton Basu based on three key principles:

  • Compassionate counsel from a unique perspective
  • Unparalleled responsiveness (A law firm that calls you back!)
  • No-nonsense advice based on first-hand insight about how estate plans can go wrong

How do we serve you?

  • We put you first. Dealing with issues of death, money and family can be daunting. We provide education and guidance in straightforward, everyday language that transforms complex concepts into practical solutions that honor your wishes.
  • We respond. Simply put, many law firms are not equipped to provide a timely response. We know that your questions feel urgent to you, and speedy answers put your mind at ease.
  • We are on the front lines of Trust & Estate Litigation, which allows us to confidently craft strategies designed to work when put to the test.

Who are we?

We are a team of professionals with extensive experience in estate planning and a passion for sharing our knowledge and expertise. By walking you through the process step-by-step, we take the mystery and the intimidation factor out of working with a law firm. We are real people who are sincerely dedicated to helping you.

Big Firm Background. Small Firm Care.
