Martin Neumann has been helping clients achieve their estate planning and trust administration objectives for over 30 years. His clients appreciate his patience and empathy as he helps them clarify goals for their families, loved ones and charitable causes. During this process, clients often express surprise when Martin raises extremely important issues that they previously had not considered, such as the impact of a substantial inheritance on family members who may lack experience managing wealth. By addressing these sensitive issues during the estate planning process, Martin successfully introduces tools and techniques to bring his clients peace-of-mind.
For most of his career, Martin has been a committed teacher, educating accountants, lawyers, financial planners and other professionals and clients on the nuances of estate planning and estate taxes.

Equally successful as a teacher, Martin received the coveted "Distinguished Instructor" award from UCLA Extension, where he teaches both beginning and advanced estate planning courses.
