How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Our founder, Robert Vaksman, is among a small group of our country's most distinguished tax and business law practitioners, having graduated New York University School of Law's pre-eminent Graduate Tax Program (ranked #1), as well as New York University Stern School of Business (ranked #3).

He was a Financial Advisor for several years with one of the premier Wall Street brokerage houses; was a member of WealthCounsel (a collaborative network of more than 1,700 Estate Planning practitioners throughout all fifty states), co-authored a book entitled, "Estate Planning Strategies. Collective Wisdom. Proven Techniques", and frequently teaches Attorneys, CPAs, Financial Advisors and Insurance Professionals the importance and techniques of optimal holistic planning strategies for clients.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Simply stated, we have a process.

1. Understand

We will work with you to explore your values and counsel you on questions important to you and your family. Designing a client-centered plan requires us to pinpoint your objectived and then synthetize our knowledge of you and your family with the broadest array of planning tools available.

2. Propose

We bring distinction to the process with original, innovative solutions, deep knowledge of advanced strategies, and our unique ability to present the plan in a systematic, practical and client-friendly way.

3. Agree & Implement

While designing a plan calls on creative skills, implementing the plan relies entirely on string management skills. By providing leadership, teamwork and strategy-specific process, our goal is to complete the work within a defined time-frame and have a client that is so satisfied they can't resist telling others.

4. Maintain

Law, health, family and financial changes can require the planning to be revised from time to time. Our clients can rest easier knowing they're protected by our Maintenance Plan. We are interested in creating a relationship with our clients, rather than a "business transaction", and the Maintenance Plan allows our team to fully understand your unique needs on an ongoing basis.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Years of experience and dedication to Estate Planning + VERY reasonable, flat fees.
