George takes pride in crafting and implementing estate planning and wealth protection strategies that provide for the efficient transmission of assets from one generation to the next, minimize tax liabilities, reduce the likelihood of conflict or confusion, and bring peace of mind to families of all means.
A seasoned estate planning lawyer whose peers have recognized him with an AV-Preeminent® rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, George has assisted countless clients to establish and administer estate plans, multi-generational trusts. He has a knack for sophisticated gifting strategies designed to reduce exposure to estate taxes. He combines a keen eye for detail with a holistic view of each client’s circumstances and goals. The former translates into his preparation of meticulous and thorough documentation, while the latter is a product of the time he takes to get to know each client and their family on a very personal level. These personal relationships allow George to provide personally tailored guidance best suited to their needs.
