What do you focus on?
In my fifteen plus years of practice, I have developed three areas of focus:
Estate and Tax Planning
I focus on estate and tax planning for individual clients. I have extensive experience in sophisticated gift, estate and income tax planning and have an interest in charitable planning. My clients come from many walks of life including corporate executives, business owners and entrepreneurs, those with inherited wealth, professors, scientists and health care professionals, among others. My advice is clear, concise and practical.
I administer estates after clients have died, including managing the probate process, handling gift and estate tax filings and related audits, and representing clients in probate litigation cases.
I have a flourishing fiduciary practice in which I regularly serve as trustee of clients’ trusts and as executor of their wills. Through this work I have gained significant experience in investment management.
