About Me

Garon’s practice focuses on estate planning, with a particular emphasis on business succession planning for closely held businesses. In addition, Garon assists clients with trust and estate administration matters.


Garon identifies himself as a global citizen. As a result, in addition to serving his clients and community, he usually takes 2-3 trips abroad a year building homes with Habitat for Humanity or volunteering medical mission trips with a Rotary organization.
