    • I recommend Michael Potter.

    I have had the honor to know Michael L. Potter for several years, and he is without a doubt one of the most brilliant and experienced legal minds in the estate planning profession I have ever encountered. His command and deep understanding of the more complex trust issues, coupled with his uncanny ability to explain them in simple terms, places him in the top tier of attorneys who can truly make a difference in a client's estate planning. He has been in the business as a trust and asset protection attorney for 25 years, and is highly respected and well known in the industry. Michael has the rare ability to make you feel comfortable, and you will be confident knowing that he will do what is best for you as his client.

    What makes Michael stand out is his remarkable history and background: a decorated Navy Captain who served this country for 30 years; a national presenter on the topics of asset protection, retirement planning and business formation; and a Scoutmaster, among other notable talents. His presentations in front of attorneys and entrepreneurs are always engaging, highly insightful, and delivered with warmth and humor. This is a person of the utmost integrity, dedication, unique accomplishment, trustworthiness and compassion. After meeting Michael, you will get a feeling that you have known him for years as a friend and trusted advisor. And after you get to know him professionally and personally, you would agree that he is truly an exceptional person who will ALWAYS do what is right. I highly recommend him.
