Tax Law

It is a fact of life that tax consequences are associated with almost anything a person does (or for that matter, does not do).  We regularly counsel our clients on the tax consequences of personal and business transactions and matters.  Our experience includes the areas of:

  • Income taxes
  • Estate taxes
  • Gift taxes
  • Generation-skipping transfer taxes

Our goal is to assist clients in minimizing taxes through lawful and legitamate means.  Our services include:

  • Counseling clients on the income tax consequences associated with their business, from start-up and choice of entity through sale or other transfer of ownership
  • Counseling individuals with respect to the tax consequences associated with raising a family and living their life, from education saving and tax planning, investment tax planning and retirement tax planning
