Getting to what’s real.
Authenticity matters. Authenticity to yourself, to your family, to what is true. For us, authenticity allows us to create something bigger than ourselves, and we suspect that’s true about you as well. If we work together with a commitment to authenticity, we will create something bigger for your legacy than you ever thought was possible.
There’s more to you than your balance sheet. You’re more than financial data. And there are more important things than reducing taxes. (Though we think that’s important, too.) We are committed to a life of fulfillment and joy, and we are committed to helping you create that for yourself.
We not only actively practice law, but we contribute to understanding through teaching, presenting, and publishing our insights in the areas of estate planning, asset protection, cryptoassets and cryptoasset planning, legacy preservation, and international tax planning.
Staying current on these often intersecting and overlapping disciplines allows us to offer increasing value to the expression of your legacy.
