About me

I distinguish my practice by emphasizing not only tax minimization but how to preserve and protect my clients' wealth through multiple generations from creditors, divorcing ex-spouses and litigation. Strategies used include domestic and foreign trusts.  The traditional drafting of Wills leaves bequests outright at certain ages while not considering the risks such beneficiaries may be exposed to thereafter. By creatively drafting trusts and educating the family members one can preserve the wealth without necessarily ceding control.

  • Michael Lynn Graham

    I am pleased to endorse Gideon Rothschild. I have worked extensively with him on development of the law and tax provisions, as well as analysis of new tax provisions for the American Bar Association and the American College of Trust an Estate Counsel. Gideon is one of the brightest lawyers I have known, and is always available to discuss matters. I have worked with younger lawyers he has trained, and they are universally superb. I have no hesitation in recommending Gideon.
