  • Secured a favorable estate tax savings of nearly $300,000 after the death of the family patriarch by using a rarely used planning technique;
  • Brokered an agreement between siblings concerning distribution of an inheritance that preserved family relations;
  • Recovered nearly $300,000 in overpaid estate taxes resulting from an error committed by another lawyer;
  • Assisted clients in transitioning trusteeship of a large trust in wake of concerns of breach of fiduciary duties;
  • Negotiated premarital agreements; and
  • Located a significant error by a national accounting firm and assisted client in correcting the error.
