Steve has drafted trusts and a full range of estate planning documents for clients to help grow, preserve, and transmit their family wealth. He has also prepared organizational documents for limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships to implement their owners' wishes regarding current and future control and transmission, including bringing in new owners and facilitating exit strategies. 
Steve enjoys helping clients structure their affairs to achieve their personal, business, and financial goals while reducing the drag that taxes imposed on them. His firm provides full service to businesses; however, he also acts as counsel on specialized matters while cooperating and facilitating the continued involvement of an existing legal, accounting, and financial services team. Steve maintains his CPA license but prefers to refer income tax returns to practicing CPAs.

Steve Gorin is the former president and an ongoing contributor to Covenant Place’s strategic initiatives. It is a senior affordable housing community with a groundbreaking model for integrated residents with the surrounding community and facilitating holistic services to enrich their lives.
