Our Team includes attorneys who specialize in estate and trust administration matters, including the development of estate plans that help our clients achieve maximum savings in income, estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer taxes. We handle the traditional aspects of personal estate planning, such as the preparation of revocable trusts, wills and irrevocable trusts. We also analyze and implement the latest techniques to reduce estate and gift taxes and preserve our clients’ wealth. In addition, we assist our clients with the preparation of estate and gift tax returns, audits of those returns and appeals to the IRS and courts to contest proposed tax deficiencies.
