Private Client Services
The attorneys of MLA's Private Client Services practice counsel families and individuals in their personal, financial and business dealings, design simple and complex estate plans, solve sophisticated tax problems, and identify and settle issues in estate and trust administration. Our work addresses four general areas of client concerns: estate and tax planning, the responsibilities of fiduciaries in the probate and trust process, dispute resolution in the estate and trust context, and the start-up and operation of nonprofit organizations.
Our team confidentially works with high net worth individuals, including clients from the entertainment and sports industries, and others with equally well-known backgrounds. We have the capacity and knowledge base to handle any complex estate plan and sophisticated tax challenge you bring to us.
We have also earned the respect and confidence of trusts and estates attorneys across the country. Eight members of our team have met the stringent set of criteria required by their peers to be elected to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). Fellows are selected on the basis of professional reputation and ability in the fields of trusts and estates, and on the basis of having made substantial contributions to these fields through lecturing, writing, teaching, and bar activities. It is one of the highest honors a trusts and estates attorney can receive.
