Martin Shenkman helped my family organize our estates and clearly explained a somewhat complex situation to the full understanding of all involved. He guided us in a step by step manner so that we did not waste money redoing any of the different pieces. Each family member had different circumstances and he customized the pieces to provide for the highest degree of protection for each member. His creativity allowed for a high level of asset protection and assurance that the assets will reach those for whom they are intended. He fully recognizes his fiduciary responsibilities and makes certain not to operate within grey areas. He explained different trust and the corresponding advantages and disadvantages of each. He then recommended which were the best fits for our situations.
Lastly, even when he is very busy he makes sure to return messages and is transparent about his commitments so he can find a window to accommodate you.
I have not encountered many more intelligent people and count myself fortunate to have him in my camp.

Martin Shenkman has been my estate attorney for 20 years. He is extremely competent and knowledgeable. He makes it a priority to understand our needs and to translate those needs into actions that will protect and grow our estate. He is careful and thorough in discussing with us other contingencies that may arise over time.

I only saw Mr. Shenkman speak once, but it was a terrific experience. As a fellow Trusts and Estate attorney, I appreciated his focus on needing to be honest with a client, coordinating financial affairs with that client's financial planner and accountant, and focusing on a client's living needs instead of their post-mortem planning. I agree 100% with his law practice philosophy.
