About me

I have been a principal in the law firm of Levine & Furman since 1982, in both the East Brunswick and Lakewood offices. Our firm specializes in estate tax planning. By incorporating the most current and sophisticated estate planning techniques, with an emphasis on family wealth transfers and complex income tax matters, we protect our clients’ assets with custom-tailored, well-crafted estate plans, which provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing future generations have been provided for. 

I have been a guest lecturer at Seton Hall School of Law speaking on the subject of estate planning for professional athletes and entertainers. I provided instruction in estate planning to CPAs, CFPs and insurance agents which qualified for their continuing professional education credits. I often present educational seminars to the public, as well as to many private organizations on various estate planning methods and have been a guest on several local television and radio shows, discussing various estate planning topics.
