Celebrate the New Year!


Now that we have landed safely in 2019, we want to pause and wish all of our clients, friends, family members, and each of you visiting our website a Happy New Year!  We especially wish to express our appreciation for the new client relationships formed during 2018, as well as for the ever-loyal clients whom we are honored to have served.


We are also pleased to provide a summary of the increases in the estate and gift tax exemptions which took effect in the New Year.  Look for these and other uplifting figures under “Headlines & Footnotes” further down on this home page.


Finally, it is with a sense of gratitude and humility that we acknowledge and share with you the peer recognition awards naming the Firm and several of Our Attorneys among the Best in America for 2018.  It is shaping up to be a great year… Be well.
