Before meeting with Theresa Marangas of the Meier Law Firm, I did my research via the internet. I felt more comfortable with a woman listening to my concerns to revise my estate plan and safer with the entire team being made up of women. Their compassion confirmed that I made the right decision in being represented by this firm.

Theresa’s virtual presentation entitled Harvest New Skills: Power of Attorney v. Guardianship to social workers for continuing education credit was AMAZING. She shared her knowledge, experience and mindfulness techniques. Numerous attendees emailed afterwards to convey how wonderful it was.
When seeking legal advice, there is the expectation that the assigned attorney has knowledge and command of the law with respect to the reasons for engagement. Theresa B. Marangas, Esq., you did not disappoint.
I was amazed and appreciated your willingness to listen to me and then provide explanations for my questions. Periodically I needed further clarification grasping scenarios, the confusion at times was evident by my facial expressions. Without hesitation or being condescending, you repeatedly rephrased information to assist in my comprehension. Thank you and the Meier Law Firm, PLLC for working expeditiously on my behalf.
I highly recommend the Meier Law Firm. Christina and her team genuinely live and breathe their values, providing authentic and professional support for new businesses. Their dedication to compassion, loyalty, integrity, empathy, no-nonsense, and trust is inspiring. Working with them has been exceptional, restoring my faith in services for small business owners and setting a remarkable standard for others to follow. Thank you to the Meier Law Firm team for their authenticity and showcasing that genuine values thrive in the legal world.
Theresa Marangas was absolutely fantastic in assisting myself & my family with a guardianship matter last year. She was supportive & professional. Theresa answered all of our questions, was very responsive, empathetic & handled our case in a very timely manner. I would recommend Meier Law Firm to anyone who needs a lawyer for any legal matter.
The Meier Law Firm is definitely the law firm you want to work with. We just completed our estate planning and Christina did a wonderful job. My husband and I had no idea where to begin and Christina explained it all. She made the process easy to understand and answered all of our questions. If you are looking to check this task off your list, go with the Meier Law Firm. You’ll be happy you did!
I worked with Theresa Marangas on a legal document I needed for a project and she was great to work with! She was fast, efficient and gave me exactly what I needed for this project. I would highly recommend her!
Theresa Marangas and the staff at the Meier Law Firm have been very professional, kind & caring in dealing with my situation and need for estate planning! I know who to reach out to if I ever need any more help.
Great Experience using Christina Meier at the Meier Law firm. She is very welcoming and explains all the details that go into creating a Will. Highly recommend!

Thank you to the staff at Meier’s Law Firm, PLLC for giving us peace of mind by providing us with an estate plan that protects our assets, provides a coherent support system and carries out our recommendations.
Theresa Marangas, Esq. took a personal interest on our behalf. She was very knowledgeable about the law and explained it to us in understandable terms. Because of her genuine concern and approach, we were able to work together on a plan that met our needs.
Without any hesitation whatsoever, my wife and I sincerely recommend Meier’s Law Firm, PLLC when you are ready to prepare an estate plan that will benefit you and your loved ones.
The lawyers at Meier Law Firm have worked with me on purchasing a home, life and estate planning. My needs are quite complex and they listen and do the research to help me make informed decisions.
I have had the pleasure of working with both Christina Meier and Theresa Marangas at the Meier Law Firm for estate planning, business planning, and real estate transactions. Both attorneys are extremely knowledgeable and professional. I recommend the Meier Law Firm without reservation.
After putting it off for many years, I finally decided to put my estate planning affairs in order and up to date. I then reached out to the Meier Law Firm and I’m glad I did. During the one-house consultation with Theresa Marangas, I was impressed with her knowledge, energy and caring attention to my personal issues. She was even able to correct for me some of the misconceptions I long held about estate planning. At the close of the consultation I then decided to put my affairs into the hands of the Meier Law Firm. In just a few short weeks all the legal documents were prepared, certified and notarized allowing me to return to doing what I now do best: my retirement!
I contacted the Meier Law Firm for estate planning just before the shut down for COVID-19. Christina worked with my partner and I over the phone and via email to make sure all our questions were answered, and planning needs met. Our business was concluded with a socially distant porch signing. The service was professional, and I felt like we were well cared for as Christina guided us through this process.

I hired Meier Law Firm for the closing of my house after someone I knew recommended them. I sold my house on my own without a real estate agent and needed a great deal of guidance. Ann Nano McNamara and Leigh Fredenburg were assigned to my case and I couldn’t have been happier. They both were extremely patient, professional and compassionate during the whole process. I highly recommend them and would use them again in the future.
My sister and I just finished using the Meier Law firm for the Estate sale of my mother’s home. Christina, Nicole and Ann had everything covered. My sister couldn’t be at the closing and since she was a co-executor, they overnighted documents to be signed. Their professionalism and aptitude was appreciated. I was also the Guardian of my aunt and I’m using this firm to settle her estate as well. Next in line is my own will to be completed by them. Do not hesitate to use this firm, you will be pleasantly surprised.
My family worked extensively with the the Meier legal team and had a fantastic experience. The team is knowledgeable, compassionate, and efficient. Areas covered included creation of last will and testament, power of attorney, Medicaid application, and the sale of a family house. Throughout the entire process they were extremely helpful and easy to work with. Many thanks to the entire team for all of their help!
Ann McNamara and her team were awesome. When we had question regarding the sale of our home they responded immediately and were able to set our minds at ease. In addition for assisting in the sale of our home we also hired them to do our wills (a long time coming). We highly recommend Meier Law Firm.
This is an outstanding law firm, whether it is for elder care, wills or real estate. Every member of Christina’s team does their utmost to ensure that the client’s need are attended to in a professional and sensitive manner. Anyone who retains their respective services will more than satisfied. The care and compassion, along with their legal expertise, is outstanding.
My family has worked directly with Ann, Nicole, and Christina on four different real estate transactions and one Power of Attorney transaction. Each experience that we’ve had has been more than positive. Communication is clear, concise, and timely. If we have any questions, they are answered thoroughly, guiding us through the process to make a decision that is best for us. I have will continue to recommend the Meier Law Firm to friends and family. I am grateful to each person for their guidance and knowledge.
Fantastic attention to detail, quick to reply to and confirm emails, and easy to contact with questions and concerns. Worked WITH us and educated us along the way as we sorted out the specifics of our case.
What a great experience working with Ann at the Meier Law Firm!!!! This is the second time I have used the Meier Law Firm. The first time was in closing on the sale of our mothers home and the second was in the purchase of my new home. Ann is extremely knowledgeable, always kept my best interests as the priority. I learned a lot from both her and Nicole. Great Job Team!!!! I will be coming back next for estate planning!!!! I would highly recommend this firm to my close personal friends, family or co–workers with no reservations or worries…. Thank you again Ann and Nicole.
I know I have high standards, so when I offer a glowing recommendation, it means a lot. I recently purchased a home, without a spouse, partner or co-signer. At the same time, my work schedule was impossible. It took only a few minutes for me to realize I could trust Christina and her team. From the first signature to the last. The team not only knows their stuff—they are personable and often a sense of humor on their end kept me sane. I am grateful.
I’ve had several great experiences now with the Meier firm – closing on my first house and helping with my disabled father’s legal issues. The closing was made simple, understandable, and personal. We were kept notified the entire time as to where we stood in the process, and they answered all of our questions almost immediately (even via email!) and honestly. My fathers issues are still ongoing and I have been receiving constant support in the process. The whole team is kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Christina, Nicole and Ann helped my husband and I through the process of buying our first home. They were all very helpful and understanding, always answering my millions of questions quickly and without making me feel silly for asking so many! They also helped us figure out how to deal with the housing we were leaving behind. They made the closing process easy and enjoyable! They were with us every step of the way and we were never left waiting or wondering. I cannot recommend this firm enough! We are already planning on working with them again for estate planning!
Ann worked with me during my home buying. Along with Nicole, she was very helpful and more importantly for me quick to address any concerns. I would highly recommend this firm to any who ask me.
I’ve worked with Christina, Ann and the rest of the team on a couple issues now. They are all very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Everything was explained to me in a way I could comfortably understand. They have made an otherwise stressful time very easy for me.
I recently purchased my families second home. We were recommended the Meier Law Firm as a top choice for the legalities of both the sale of the first home and the purchase of our second. It was a great recommendation. Christina and her entire team continually went above and beyond, often after business hours, to make sure everything was taken care of. If you’re in need legal services I would highly recommend the Meier Law Firm and I am certain we will be using them again for any future needs.
“Thank you ladies so very, very much for your kind assistance in the sale of this property! You made it so easy, and at all times it felt as though I was in such very good hands. You set the benchmark high in the service you provide! Being your client was an extraordinary experience, and I both thank you and congratulate you on that! You’ve created a culture of excellence at Meier Law. That is quite an accomplishment.
My husband and I couldn’t be more pleased with the legal services provided by Christina Meier, both during recent real estate transactions and with our complicated estate planning. Several years ago, she wrote a relatively simple will for us, but this past year, our needs had changed, so we approached her again. Christina guided us through the legal maze and worked with our certified public accountant and financial planner to come up with a very satisfying plan: multi-generational and individualized to meet our every impulse. She was so patient and so knowledgeable. Because she was able to lay out our options and their ramifications, we were able to identify more easily what we wanted. We have also seen Christina operate in challenging situations. She is always kind and professional, and most importantly, she never loses track of what is important: representing her client with clarity and integrity. M.A., Albany

Ms. Meier handled our estate planning, and also represented us when we purchased a new home. We are very satisfied with everything she’s done for us. In particular, we greatly appreciate all the work she put into helping us with our recent house purchase, especially since we encountered several problems along the way. First the bank made an error in some of the paper work. Then, during the septic inspection, it was discovered that the leach field needed to be replaced. On the heels of that, the survey showed that a neighbor’s fence was encroaching quite a bit over the property line. And finally, once all of these problems were fixed to our satisfaction, without our having to expend any additional money, the sellers wanted to remain in the house past the end of the contract, to the point we were going to lose the mortgage rate we’d locked in. Ms. Meier didn’t let this happen! Through it all, Ms. Meier persevered and handled each situation professionally, and never once lost her cool! We highly recommend Ms. Meier to handle real estate, estate planning, or any other legal matters you might have! In fact we’re having her handle the sale of our old house now as well!
My Husband and I had a phenomenal experience working with Christina with the purchase of our first home. She was very thorough, professional, answered all of our questions, and went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best experience. We would highly recommend her services to anyone!

Ms. Meier (Christina) was invaluable in helping us to revise our wills and to establish revocable trusts that will protect our assets for our children. She was timely, thorough, and very knowledgeable in handling our rather complex estate plans. She collaborated with tax professionals to ensure that our heirs will pay minimal estate taxes. Additionally, she provided sound counsel regarding some aspects of our wills and trusts, suggesting options we had not considered, which will benefit our heirs; and she was sensitive to our concerns for balance in the bequests to the adult children of our blended family. It was a pleasure to work with Ms. Meier (Christina). We have the utmost trust and confidence in her expertise, and we recommend her highly.
