Prior to joining CMBG3 Law, Seta worked at a firm specializing in asbestos and talc litigation, toxic torts, products liability and insurance defense. Additionally, Seta previously worked as a law clerk and was promoted to associate attorney at a busy Boston real estate law firm. She handled residential and commercial real estate acquisitions, sales, leasing, financing, zoning and development work. She successfully represented clients in a variety of real estate related litigation matters, including condominium disputes, landlord/tenant, complex title clearing matters, contract disputes and 93A claims in District, Superior and Land Court. At that firm, Seta took lead with the managing partner in handling the estate planning work, including preparing estate documents for her client’s needs and handling estate and trust administrations. She has advised clients on asset protection, taxation and handled entity formations and transfers of property. During her law school career, Seta interned for the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office in Chelsea District Court and worked at a well-established immigration firm in downtown Boston.
