“Trusts and Estates Law is a deeply personal practice that forces us to think about what matters most – family, legacy, and our mortality. I feel honored to assist clients in making estate planning and administration decisions that shape current and future generations. Through sophisticated drafting and tax planning, clients have the authority to determine how they will be remembered.” - Amanda
