This includes directly advising clients and their advisors on various strategies – taking into account tax, business, and personal goals – and the drafting of sophisticated estate planning documents to implement them.

Susan’s practice also includes advising individuals and business owners with respect to asset protection and succession planning, the representation of decedents’ estates, trust administration, conflict resolution, planning with charitable vehicles, and gift and estate tax return preparation. In addition, Susan has significant experience counseling beneficiaries and fiduciaries in disputed trust and estate matters and negotiating family settlements.
