Valeria Velasco has been practicing law for over 30 years at her own firm, The Law Offices of Valeria Velasco, in Playa del Rey.  She specializes in estate administration and probate.

Born and raised in Los Angeles Valeria attended California High School and received her law degree from University of West LA.   Estate planning and administration were her favorite subjects in law school. Helping people through the process of losing a loved one resonated and appealed to Valeria.  Legal matters can play a significant role in this process and it was where Valeria felt she could do her best work with the law.  You’ll experience a personal touch with focus on customer service when working with Valeria.  A recent client  shared,  their words to Valeria,  “You care about me more than the fees  I’m going to pay you. That gives me strong confidence in our relationship and gives me peace knowing that you will work hard to help me get through this process because you care.”  Also reflective of her client satisfaction is the fact that now, 30 years since opening her practice, she finds herself serving multiple generations of clients!”
