About Attorneys White and Sochacki
Estate Planning and Elder Law are important areas of focus for Attorney White, who guides clients through issues that can be intricate and emotionally challenging as they plan for the future based on their individual needs and goals.
In drafting estate planning documents including wills, living wills, durable Power of Attorney documents, and health care directives, Attorney White addresses issues of taxation, preservation of assets, and asset management in a process that includes identifying when trusts are necessary, and what type of trust is appropriate.
Elder Law and long-term care can be difficult to navigate as laws and policies change and evolve. Attorney White assists families with issues related to housing, care facilities, and accessing state and federal benefits for long-term care, as well as special needs planning, conservatorships, and guardianships.
Attorney White is also the lead partner for business and corporate law in the Litchfield office, assisting business owners with the formation of companies and providing counsel on transactions and other issues.

Attorney Sochacki’s Civil Litigation and Personal Injury practice focuses on helping people who have been wronged or injured, including cases involving product liability, construction defects, medical malpractice, professional malpractice, and Workers’ Compensation claims.
His experience includes 17 years of practicing as an insurance defense litigator, giving him strategic insight and experience concerning how insurance companies and their defense counsel handle the litigation of claims.
Attorney Sochacki also has extensive experience with employers’ liability and discrimination, and real estate errors and omissions, as well as fire and explosion litigation, along with emergency management and emergency response consultation and litigation.
Attorney Sochacki’s volunteer service as a first responder—as a member of New Hartford Volunteer Ambulance and New Hartford’s Nepaug/Bakerville Volunteer Fire Department—also provides him with insights and experience that benefit clients. A licensed Paramedic and certified firefighter, he has a deeper understanding than most attorneys of medical conditions and emergency response.
