His expertise in the trust and estates field earned him election to the exclusive American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), an invitation to present at the Heckerling Estate Planning Institute, and a host of other professional honors. But it's the everyday feedback from clients who appreciate his counsel that drives his dedication.
