Ron has advocated
the education
of the public and financial planning professionals
to help
people make informed decisions relating to their
estate planning,
including the use of trusts as a proven way to
protect families
from the expense and delay of guardianship and
probate and
to minimize federal estate taxes. His motto: Proper
Adds Predictability.


Mr. Greening is
to researching and preparing high quality,
tax-sensitive estate
plans. His mission in law is to help people
accomplish their
estate planning goals, and to take the mystery out
of the
estate planning process. His clients have their
estate plans
explained in straight-forward language that they and
families can understand. Good planning avoids
needless court
interference, public records, attorney fees and
interference when an estate is settled.

education seminars
for C.P.A.’s, nursing home administrators,
attorneys, C.F.P.’s
and other financial advisors. He provides free
