About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Elder law
    Elder Law involves planning for the complex health care, long-term care, and other issues facing elderly and disabled individuals and their families.

  2. Estate planning
    While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.

  3. Business

  4. Guardianship
    If you be­come mentally or physically disabled, such that you are unable to manage your own affairs, the probate court will appoint someone to take control of all your assets and personal affairs.

  5. Probate
    Probate is the legal process that occurs following a person’s death who left behind a last will and testament.

  6. Trusts
    As the Executor or Personal Representative, as we call in in Maryland of an estate or trustee of a trust, it’s natural to have concerns about making all the right decisions at the right time.

  7. Wills and living wills
    Estate planning is the creation of a definite plan for managing your wealth while you’re alive and distributing it after your death. These assets may be owned by you separately or jointly with others.

Decision Confidence Delivered
We have been dealing with an emotionally charged Trust dispute. A situation involving multiple state jurisdictions and very different perspectives on all sides. Mr. Gershberg and his team provided us with consistent, experience-backed counsel while assessing our case. He enabled us to overcome emotion and confidently plan for the best interest of our loved ones. We offer our highest recommendation for Mr. Gershberg and team.

Rick and his team care about their clients
Gershberg & Associates have been instrumental in getting both our family estate planning, and some important small business needs taken care of. I honestly don't think anyone could have done a better job, or taken more care with what they are doing. Rick and the rest of the team care deeply about doing the best they can for their clients, and they're darn good at it.
