Summary

I am an attorney that focuses in estate planning and business planning from cradle to grave, i.e., starting or buying a business; capitalizing your business; optimizing your business with tax, corporate and asset protection planning; strategizing business succession; and selling your business. I believe two things differentiate me from other lawyers: I understand the numbers, and I personally have business experience. These characteristics make me acutely aware of my client's needs and goals. PRACTICE FOCUS: Commercial Real Estate Business Planning Tax Planning U.S. & State Income, Gift & Estate/Inheritance Taxes Trust Creation: Simple & Complex Estate Planning Probate Elder Law/Medicaid Planning Structuring Business Investment Conduits Corporation Formation Charity/Non-Profit Formation Section 1031 Exchanges Property Tax Valuation Litigation
