  • Thomas Robert Rogers

    As an estate planning attorney and a Certified Public Accountant in Florida with over 35 years of practice helping clients design estate plans, I have learned about a number of techniques from Andy. Andy has a unique way of explaining technical concepts in a manner that makes them understandable. He often shares his knowledge and skill that he has gained in estate planning through his experiences with colleagues in a study group where we collaborate. If you are in need of advice with respect to estate planning, I would highly recommend you seek Andy's counsel.
