Common sense tells you that you do not plan your estate or solve trust and estate problems just by throwing money at them. That same common sense should tell you that you do not plan your estate or solve your trust and estate problems by throwing money at your lawyers. The best solutions and the best lawyers are not necessarily the most expensive.

I enthusiastically endorse this superb lawyer. I had the pleasure of working for Mr. Brown as an associate attorney, when I transitioned from practicing family law to estate planning. In addition to being a seasoned coach and a great mentor to me, he is an outstanding attorney and asset to our trust and estate legal community. His ethics, honesty and skill are unsurpassed. He is highly skilled, professional and experienced and I recommend him to anyone seeking representation in the area of trust and estate.
