Most estate tax planners base their planning strategies and structures upon experience, education, and general impressions of how the estate tax system works. This can be very dangerous and also leave money on the table for Uncle Sam. When you actually run the numbers on various estate tax planning techniques you may be surprised at what the outcome will be.

Our firm was formed in 1987 with one lawyer and a shared secretary and receptionist to provide representation to professionals, business owners and retirees in their estate and related tax and personal planning, business and corporate needs.
Since then we have grown to 6 lawyers and over 20 staff, which we have found over the past two decades to be the best size for us. We are very proud of our team, our systems, and our dedication to providing the best and most appropriate legal services for all clients, whether big or small. Our lawyers meet together almost every morning to discuss and work together on cases, strategies and practice improvement projects in order to work the most efficiently and effectively for our clients. We like what we do and enjoy working together.
