Beth is a shareholder at Jaburg Wilk and has been practicing law for more than three decades. She chairs the firm’s Estate Planning and Business Law Department. As both a Tax Specialist certified by the State Bar of Arizona – Arizona Board of Legal Specialization and a Certified Public Accountant, she has a unique expertise in assisting her clients with their estate planning as well as closely held businesses. She has assisted hundreds of families – including ones with substantial assets – with their estate needs ranging from simple estate plans to complex multi-generational gifting plans.

Her expertise and wide range of experience in structuring business entities and succession plans allows her clients to take advantage of tax and business opportunities, as well as protecting the individual business owner’s assets from the reach of creditors. She assists families, closely held businesses’ owners, and individuals by providing succession planning, business planning and estate planning. Whether trusts, wills, powers of attorneys, living wills or healthcare directives, Beth has the skills to help clients preserve the wealth they have created to benefit themselves, their family, and succeeding generations. She has also assisted in formation of (501(c)(3)) non-profits and assisted clients with charitable gifting.

Beth has represented clients from the start-up phase of their business to growing into multi-million dollar companies. These are longtime clients and Beth has been an integral part of that growth. She has assisted them with mergers, acquisitions and sales, real estate transactions, entity formation to maximize tax advantages, stock sales, leases, and like-kind exchanges. Representative transactions include:

  • Family partnership owned 1,500 acres in West Phoenix and sold its property for development as a large master planned community.
  • Numerous sales and purchases of businesses or interests in entities including sale of corporate stock or membership interests in limited liability companies.
  • Mergers and dissolution of entities and tax free reorganizations of closely held businesses.
  • Development of large entertainment and destination sites in the U.S. & Canada.
  • Real estate and business lending transactions.
  • Brick and mortar company that developed Internet businesses and attendant licensing arrangements.

She has appeared on various television programs to discuss estate planning topics, gifting strategies and other effective estate planning techniques. She authored Charitable Gift Planning, which appeared in the Arizona Attorney and has spoken locally on a number of estate planning topics.
