I trust Steve Zipper for the most complex estate planning issues that arise in my commercial litigation cases. He is pragmatic, calm and knowledgeable. I have a number of clients that I have referred to Steve that have reported how pleased they are with him. He is the person I would hire for my own estate planning needs.
