About Tony

Learn Tony’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    Estate planning is comprehensive planning for you and your family during your life & after death with responsible asset and lifestyle management. It includes trusts, wills, powers of attorney, medical documents, asset transfers, tax planning & more.

    34 years, 3,000 cases

  2. Trusts
    My favorite area of practice. One of the single best things I can do for a client is help them plan for the management of their estates and a smooth transition of their legacy for their loved ones.

    34 years, 2,500 cases

  3. Business
    We assist in all business phases from entity formation, purchase of businesses, lease drafting and negotiations, contract work in the lifecycle of the business and exit plans for selling assets or stepping out of the business entity to a new owner.

    34 years, 200 cases

  4. Probate
    This is an area that most people try to avoid, but often fall into if they fail to adequately plan ahead. In those cases, we help usher our clients through probate as quickly and painlessly as possible.

    34 years, 300 cases

  5. Contracts and agreements
    I draft complex and simple agreements, from documenting loans owed by family members, to sales of businesses, cell tower agreements, stock purchases, etc.

    34 years, 300 cases

  6. Wills and living wills
    While this is an essential part of any estate plan that I draft with every complete plan, most trusts are used as “just in case” documents to back up a Trust.

    34 years, 5,000 cases

  7. Elder law
    One of the fastest growing areas of practice with an aging population. Our elders are often vulnerable and need to be protected from physical, emotional and financial abuse, cared for in their adult years and helped with affording proper care.

    34 years, 150 cases

  8. Power of attorney
    This is a basic and essential element of estate planning, but also necessary and valuable for other contingency planning.

    34 years, 1,000 cases

  9. Guardianship
    I try to keep my clients away from this area by making proper provisions in their estate planning that make guardianships and conservatorships unnecessary. Otherwise, a stranger may end up making your life and financial decisions for you.

    34 years, 20 cases

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Friendly!
I met with Tony to understand the basics of my grandmother's trust and how trusts work. Tony explained the differences between Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts and how a Will plays into the scenario. He also knows the tax law behind it all and can explain the potential implications of a larger trust. He illustrated the process from start to finish - beginning a trust, who can do what, re-assigning roles, amendments, and what happens when the Trust owner passes away. We only met for an hour, but the wisdom and information Tony conveyed during that time instilled a sense of peace and confidence in his knowledge that I did not know was possible! Tony is relatable and friendly and talks with you on your level. I would highly recommend Tony for ANY and ALL of your estate planning needs!

Estate Planning
Tony has assisted me with my mother's estate. My mom became incompetent and cannot communicate. She provided me with no direction as to her wishes prior to losing her independence. Tony thoroughly, compassionately, and patiently educated me on all the issues and options, all of which I was unaware of. I now have an effective estate plan to comfortably care for my mother.
