After spending the first 20 years of his legal career developing his estate planning skills at a major downtown law firm, Michael decided to join SSBP in 2003. It has been a great match for both the firm and Michael from the beginning. Michael is a gifted attorney and is extremely personable. Estate planning is all about people and relationships. Clients regularly comment that Michael is not only friendly, caring and knowledgeable, but also good at explaining complex issues in a clear and concise manner.
Michael has a wide range of clients, including high net worth families, successful business owners, entrepreneurs, professionals, real estate developers, clients with significant life insurance, clients with blended families, and clients with aging parents and adult children. His experience includes wills, trusts, family limited partnerships, estate tax and income tax reduction, family business dynamics, charitable giving strategies and asset protection planning. When Michael meets with new clients, he discusses a thorough list of family, financial, and tax-saving issues to insure that all of his clients’ objectives are addressed.
