Protecting Your Assets
Piece By Piece

Las Vegas Estate Planning Attorney, Author, and Scholar

I approach every client’s unique estate plan based on Mazlow’s hierarchy of needs and motivations (progressing through physiological, safety, belongingness and love, esteem, self-actualization, and self-transcendence).

I Draft Every Trust Myself, Like a Piece of Artwork

I hold an LL.M. (Master of Laws) in Taxation, and I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), certified in Illinois only. Most recently I hold an LL.M. in Entertainment and Media Law. I have been drafting wills and trusts in Nevada for over thirty years.

With my legal guidance and counsel, your estate plan will employ the latest techniques available. I will help to inform your beneficiaries and other advisors of our techniques, vision, and strategy.

Faithful Enhancement and Preservation of Your Wealth

My colleagues and I are dedicated to educating our clients on the steps necessary to accomplish their estate planning goals and objectives. We are committed to providing the service, professionalism, and expertise necessary for you to fully realize maximum wealth enhancement and preservation.

Controlling Where Your Estate Will Go

Basically, your estate will go to two of three places when you die: your loved ones, charity, or the IRS — pick two. Every U.S. citizen will be a philanthropist. Either you will give voluntarily to a charity or foundation of your choice, or your wealth will go to the IRS and the government decides how your wealth is spent. I help guide you so you can control and direct exactly where every dollar in your estate will go.
