Helping my clients build a foundation and their confidence
Learn how clients employ my legal services to address their planning needs, resolve their legal administrative issues, and change the way they view the attorney-client relationship.
I've been putting off estate planning for years for a myriad of reasons... it's depressing, not fun, confusing, and overwhelming. Katrina took all of those negatives and handled the planning process like the BOSS she is. If you know you need to make a plan, don't wait for something to happen- leave your loved ones with a well thought out, step by step guide for what happens next. They will thank you and then you can rest in peace and not have to haunt them for doing something incorrectly... Just kidding (kind of). Katrina made it easy and explained everything to us and answered all of our questions. Do the things- it doesn't hurt.

Katrina has been so helpful with my legal matters which have in no way been an easy task. She was able to step in and help me with Probate issues that I had no idea would consume so much of my life! She reassured me that everything would be ok when I was on the verge of tears and was able to help me navigate my way through the roughest time of my life. I continue to work with her and I would recommend her for any type of legal help you may need.
Katrina Hofstetter, Attorney at Law, was a pleasure to work with. She is a highly competent young woman and very efficient. Katrina has a real talent for putting legal wording into layman terms, making it easy to understand.
Katrina Hofstetter established a trust for my husband and me. She was easy to work with especially in the way she communicates. Very straightforward and patient with 2 old people. Also, she was clear about expectations and did exactly what she said she would do.

Connecting with Katrina put luck on my side. I had an old estate plan that needed updating and my daughter searched around and found a possible connection with Katrina. I made plans to meet with Katrina when I was visiting family in East Lansing. Our consultation went well, and I was immediately confident that I could easily work with her. Her intelligence was obvious, her demeanor comfortable, and I knew that this relationship would work. We discussed what was needed to update the trust, and a few weeks later I had the trust in my hand. Katrina's fees were fair, and she will answer any questions one might have. Very trustworthy.
Above and beyond! She did exactly what she said she was going do. She listened to our concerns and thoughts. Does great work. We are happy to have her to work with!
-Kyle & Chelsie
So thankful to have Katrina's expertise in setting up our trust. She made a daunting task easy, educational and, shockingly, enjoyable! Katrina is very organized and professional yet approachable. She provided just the right amount of information to make concepts accessible without feeling overwhelming. We're in our 30's and just had our first baby. Our accountant recommended that we seek guidance from Katrina as we shift into this next phase of our life. Totally worth the investment to know that we have these things taken care of for our loved ones, especially our child. I'll be sending friends and family her way!

Katrina is fantastic. She effectively communicated and took care of everything for us. We couldn't recommend her high enough. Even if you have to wait a couple months for an appointment, it's worth it, she's awesome.
-Doug & Molly
Katrina helped us set up both an estate and business plan and was so incredibly helpful throughout the process. She was thorough and efficient and I cannot recommend her more highly. The initial Zoom call was so convenient for our schedules for my husband and I to both be present and she came to our home to go over and sign all of the final documents.
-Adam & Kim
Katrina was great to work with! She took time in explaining the process and guiding us. We would recommend her to anyone needing estate planning services. Thanks Katrina!
-Jeff & Sara
We really appreciated our experience working with Katrina. We had considered setting up a trust ourselves but were so glad we had her to help us. She took the time to find out what was most important to us and explained the difference between a trust and a will, how to keep things out of probate, and all the different things our paperwork should cover from financials, guardianship, and health care decisions. We would have been so overwhelmed without her help. Her organized and detailed presentation helped us to understand everything we were signing and to know all the things we needed to do to complete the final pieces. She was also very accommodating with our schedule and the location of meetings, even enduring last minute changes to meetings due to our child care schedule. We would and have recommended her to others.
-Ryan & Ashley
We worked with Katrina previously to draw up our Trust when she was an assistant in a law office. Now she has her law degree and her own practice, we wanted Katrina to review & update our Trust. Her professionalism is top notch. We appreciated the ability to complete conferences virtually. Katrina listens carefully, responds compassionately, and explains everything clearly. We trust Katrina and highly recommend her services.
-Rick & Pamela
We had a great experience using Katrina's services. She helped our family with an estate planning need. Katrina was knowledgeable, professional and responsive to our questions.

Estate planning is so important to avoid probate and hardship for your family. Talk with Katrina about all of your questions - you will find a wealth of knowledge, caring, and understanding.
Katrina was great to work with. I feel she conveniently supplied me with a complete, thorough, healthy and sound legal product that is helping me rest easier at night. Her services were totally worth her reasonable fees! I highly recommend her!
Katrina assisted me in handling my mother's estate after she passed away unexpectedly. She was thorough yet very kind and sensitive as she helped me navigate the probate system. I truly could not have managed without her!
I was fortunate to have Katrina in my corner after the passing of my brother. She made the process for probate painless as she explained every step along the way. Katrina is very comfortable to work with and I would highly recommend her.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Katrina Hofstetter for years. The quality of her work and attention to detail is second to none! I highly recommend her for anyone who needs to do some estate planning.
We recently worked with Cornerstone Legal for multiple matters. This was our first time engaging a lawyer, and we were intimidated by the process but knew we needed help. We wanted to start LLCs, review leases that we had for some rentals, transfer deeds, do our estate planning and get a will and trust set up. Katrina was amazing! She took our complicated needs and stepped us through her proven process. She was available for virtual or in-person meetings and took time explaining legal terms, helping us make decisions, and patiently answering all our questions. All communication was excellent, prompt and easy to understand. Our finished product was very impressive and organized so we now have beautiful LLC binders and estate planning portfolios that we can refer to. We would highly recommend Cornerstone Legal to anyone who wants exceptional legal service.

Katrina N. Hofstetter made my experience getting my estate planning as well as my Mothers smooth and painless. She is patient and knowledgeable. I had contacted other attorneys in the Battle Creek area and I would choose Cornerstone Legal 10 times over.
We had a wonderful experience working with Katrina from Cornerstone Legal. She thoroughly explained our options and provided us with a complete estate plan. The process was so easy, we decided to work with her again to help my mom update some of her documents for current and future needs. I appreciate the time Katrina takes to answer every question and would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.
-Dan & Mindy
Mrs. Hofstetter has over 10 years of experience with estate planning and she is very affordable because she does not maintain an office. Katrina came to our home within one week of my phone call for an appointment. Within two weeks she came back to our home to go over our documents. Not only did we get our estate planning documents in a binder but we also have access to these documents through a secure client portal. Katrina responded promptly to our emails &/or calls, often within the an hour. We highly recommend Katrina Hofstetter for your estate planning.
-Jim & Mary
Katrina was recommended by my financial advisor after needing all new Estate Planning documents. She was wonderful and I would highly recommend her. She was organized and efficient. My Portfolio is very professional and contains everything my daughter will need at my passing. I would highly recommend Katrina for all your legal needs.
Working with Katrina was a pleasure. She was able to schedule our initial meeting quickly which allowed time to have my plans in place before Christmas. She was knowledgeable, explained pros and cons very clearly and was very pleasant to deal with. A good experience all around.
In a society where customer service and attention to detail are all but dead, Katrina restored my faith in humanity. I had a dispute over a drainage problem with my neighbor threatening to sue me. Not only did Katrina diligently go over the law in the matter she came over to the house to get a better understanding of the dispute... WHO DOES THAT?? My family feels safe having Katrina in our corner. Katrina goes the extra mile, is very personable and puts you at ease. Glad she is on my side.
Katrina was patient with us and helped us to understand the importance of getting legal papers prepared for us and make things easier for our families. She did good explaining things to us and did a excellent job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help and guidance with estate planning.
-Bob & Kathy
Katrina Hofstetter of Cornerstone Legal, PLLC is a great attorney. I would recommend her specifically for estate planning. My mother who is 93, needed an update to her will. Katrina was helpful, professional, efficient and a good listener. The end result was a comprehensive set of documents, organized and placed in a 3-ring binder, making it accessible to anyone who is in grief, yet must go forth, procedurally to deal with the estate. She has a warm and helpful personality. She followed through with every task that she had committed to doing and was ready to accommodate possible staggered payments. Happily, we didn’t need to do this. Please contact and consider her as a legal ally that you can trust, absolutely!

Very professional and easy to work with. Communication was top notch. Very pleased with how quickly she was able to resolve my issue.
