Attorney Shelly Rizzotti

Shelley Rios

Real Estate & Probate Attorney in Burbank

Shelley Rios has consistently been recognized by clients and peers for representing clients with zeal, compassion, integrity and timeliness. A major goal of her practice is to provide exceptional customer service.

Having been actively involved in real estate sales and acquisitions for almost 20 years, Shelley has consistently been recognized for her accomplishments. She expanded into the practice of law to provide clients seeking representation in real estate, probate, estate planning and trusts and wills with the same type of representational efforts she has devoted to her real estate brokerage practice. “My work history enables me to understand transactions from more than just a legal perspective. Having practical experience in representing buyers and sellers in real estate transactions, including those clients administering trusts or probates, allows me to work from several points of view and successfully resolve issues quicker than an attorney without this practical component.”

Shelley Rios represents major studios and celebrities but most enjoys working with those who need her most in the areas of Burbank, Toluca Lake, Glendale, Sun Valley, Sunland, Tujunga, Sherman Oaks, Valley Village, Studio City, North Hollywood and the surrounding communities.
