    I've had the pleasure of knowing and learning from Richard Egner for the past 20 years. Rich was my first mentor when I began private practice, and he always found the time in his busy schedule to take this young, green estate planner under his wing. Rich spent hours of his valuable time with me, teaching me not only the most important aspects of the law, but also the importance of building one's character and integrity in order to become both a fine attorney and trusted family advisor. He never asked for anything in return, except that one day I would do the same for someone else. Rich is a role model to many, and the type of lawyer all lawyers should aspire to be. He is brilliant, ethical, compassionate and considerate. His level of experience is unparalleled, and his ability to break complex matters of law down into simple, understandable pieces is a gift few attorneys enjoy. Look no further; Richard Egner is a gem, and you won't be able to locate a finer attorney anywhere.
