Paul practices in the areas of estate planning, and estate and trust administration, representing both fiduciaries and beneficiaries. He brings more than thirty years of experience in the public and private practice of law to the table for each of his clients, as well as nearly two decades of experience as a partner of a general practice law firm in which capacity he faced and resolved many of the same issues as the owner of any closely held business. Paul’s clients run the gamut from the exceedingly wealthy to those living paycheck to paycheck. All receive the highest level of his attention, respect and competence.
